Merrie SwainHometown: Detroit, MI
Position: Production Assistant
Favorite Season: Spring… anything but summer, really.  Summer is evil to gingers.  All that nasty sunlight everywhere, it’s disgusting.
Least Favorite Nickname: “Mer.”  How is shortening my already short name attractive at all?  Is it really that hard to pronounce two syllables?  Be more creative, people!

What do you do on AOTS?
A zillion tons of paperwork that never ends, EVER. I’m shocked that my desk stays decently organized with all the various stacks of paper that pile up.
What is your favorite moment from the show?

I’m a sucker for awkward situations and hilarious train wrecks. I think I peed a little when Gilbert Gottfried was interviewed.

Do you have any passions outside of working at G4?

I model occasionally for fantastic photographers; otherwise I’m very passionate about dive bars and napping.

SA9 360 CameraOn today's Attack of the Show, Kevin Pereira and Candace Bailey showed off the new mindbending SA9 360 Camera courtesy of
Social Animal
and Band Digital, a rig that allows for shooting in 360 degrees all at once, letting the viewer decide which angle of the video they want to watch by scrolling left and right.

Of course, it’s better to see it in action than to just read about it, so check out this short AOTS film shot entirely using the SA9.

Click the image below to launch the SA360 player, click-and-drag on the viewer to revolve the camera, and see everything that happens during this fateful trip to Meltdown Comics. Prepare to have your mind blown!

Watch the SA360 version of "Meltdown at Meltdown Comics"

One of the best things about shooting with the SA9 is that it allows you to make a definitive cut of your piece after the fact. To that end, we've prepped a cut of Meltdown at Meltdown Comics to show you what it would look like not in a 360 view.

The Adventures of Tintin: New Teaser Trailers Hit

The Adventures of Tin Tin: The Secret of the Unicorn has unveiled its first teaser trailer.

The hyped, yet mysterious motion capture film, which will tout names like Steven Spielberg, Peter Jackson, Steven Moffat, and Edgar Wright among its creative forces won't even be in theaters until December 23. However, buzz about this project has been swirling for years, and now, we get our first (albeit brief) peak at this ambitious film based on the popular French comic.

Jamie Bell, who was almost Spider-Man, plays the titular character (Tintin, not the Unicorn,) joined by the likes of Andy Serkis, Daniel Craig, Cary Elwes, and a plethora of others. The trailer undoubtedly lives up to the classification of a "teaser," but what we do see appears to be quite epic.

Check it out!

The first Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 trailer is finally here, and it gives us a glimpse into the final chapter in the story of 'The Boy Who Lived.' Let me just put your worried mind at ease. It is completely badass. This movie is going to ratchet up the action in a way that none of the other Potter films have even hinted at, and, of course, features the final confrontation between Harry Potter and Lord Voldemort.

What do you think about the first Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 trailer? Is it as good for you as it was for us?
