"Name That Schmuck!" from Running Lady Studios & Virtual Girl Prod.

schmuck \'shmək\ : a stupid or foolish person: jerk

 

Have YOU ever encountered one? Bet you went to school with or worked for one. Maybe you've been served by, taught by, or given the finger by one. Did you date or marry one? Or (GASP) give birth to one?!

 

And are you, like so many of us, simply amazed by the sheer number of pop culture and political celebrity schmucks out there? Think you can name a few?

 

Writer/actress Gameela Wright (Avajean Westland in Second Life) of Virtual Girl Productions, and director K. DaVette See (Suzy Yue in Second Life) of Running Lady Studios have put together another pop culture bitch slap in which a few well-known schumcks get put through the wringer in a familiar setting: the daytime game show. If "Jeopardy" and "TMZ" had a baby, you'd get "Name That Schmuck!"

 

Running Lady Studios (RLS) is K. DaVette See, director, and Rob See, cinematographer/ designer. DaVette and Rob hold Theatre and Scenic Design degrees, respectively. With over 30 years combined experience in theatre, video and film, they formed Running Lady Studios in 2008 and have produced or co-produced over twenty animated short films.

 

Gameela Wright is an actress and writer based in NYC. She formed Virtual Girl Productions (VGP) for the purpose of developing a sketch comedy webisodic series in the vein of "The Tracy Ullman Show" filmed exclusively in Second Life. VGP teamed with RLS to produce short animated films featuring Ms. Wright as writer and star, and Ms. See as director.
