In honor of the fantastic web series created by Bri Castellini titled Brains, we had an interview with her about the series she created. Brains, the web series, is now featured on Seeka.TV and we could not be more excited to re-watch the series again! This is a huge accomplishment for Bri, the cast, and the crew — they have worked so hard to achieve success, and they have.
Brains has won awards to follow and Bri’s other short films and other work, in general, have won awards as well. It is always an honor to work with Bri and support the many endeavors she is partaking in, with that being said, let’s chat with Bri Castellini!
The Daily Fandom: How did you come up with the idea for “Brains?” (Other than tackling a real life zombie apocalypse, of course!)
Bri Castellini: Brains is based on a five-minute, one-act play I wrote in college for a playwriting class, set in a piano practice room. It ended up getting produced by an on-campus, student-run theater group, and it was the first time I’d ever seen my writing performed since I was used to writing prose.
I was addicted to the performance and addicted to the idea of a girl so focused on her love life that the zombie apocalypse happening outside was just an annoyance. I kept workshopping the idea with myself, eventually getting a short story version of it published in a small literary magazine (you can read that here, actually! Page 42)
TDF: Were you interested in zombies or the notion of zombies before writing/creating the web series? (such as zombie films, zombie tv shows, or even zombie literature).
TDF: What are the top three things you would bring to a zombie apocalypse?
TDF: In one word, describe what “Brains” is (without using the words: zombie or apocalypse).
TDF: How does it feel to have not only won awards for your work (including short films) but you are also now featured on Seeka.TV? I’m sure it feels surreal, but what would you describe it as?
TDF: Finally, What is next for Bri Castellini?
We had a blast talking with Bri about Brains and where she sees herself in the future. We were super excited to see this excellent web series is now featured on Seeka.TV. If you have yet to check out this web series, TDF has posted numerous articles about Bri’s work: here, here, and here. You can find Brains’ Web Series all over Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Their Official Website and Bri’s Twitter. You won’t want to miss it.
