First off, I would like to introduce myself. For those who are not familiar with me, my name is Jeff Elwell, but I go by DangerShoes. The history behind the name DangerShoes is not important, but my story is… somewhat.
I was as born and raised in Los Angeles. California. The film and television industries have crossed my path several times throughout my life, whether getting on soundstages via mom's make-up artist boyfriend or a location shoot at my high school. It has pretty much been in my life. So when the time came, I joined the ranks as an extra. For two plus years, I was on a lot of sets and locations. I found the creative process of TV series and movies highly interesting. The many shots, angles and hours for just a minute or two of on screen dialog, the hours in holding while waiting for a chance to go on set and the sometimes awesome and sometimes not craft service… This is the life of an extra. Sadly, that ended.
Several years after I moved out of California, I started to play this little game called, World of Warcraft. I think you know where this is headed. I heard rumors of this funny online series. It wasn't until the second time that I quit WoW that I started watching The Guild. Playing catch up on two seasons was rough, especially when ComicCon was fast approaching. From that point on, things moved fast. I took a vacation to Southern California, and while I was visiting L.A., I met a few very important people in the new media world. One in fact was Sandra Payne, producer for The Web Files. After an amazing vacation, and meeting the cast of The Guild, I started to watch The Web Files. From that point on, I was blown away by all the series I found. Within several months, I decided to do my part and help spread the word about these creative and independent series. Hence, I created WebSeries2Watch.com. I was asked to be a contributing writer on this site, Web Series Today, for which I was honored and accepted. So, without further delay….
