Attack Of The Staff: Sean Poole, Production Assistant

Posted April 29, 2011 - By Eugene Morton

Attack of the Staff: Sean Poole, Production AssistantHometown: The small town of Snohomish, WA.
Position: Production Assistant
Favorite Season: My favorite season is the beginning of fall, because it’s still sunny outside and all the best TV shows start back up again.
Least Favorite Nickname: A former intern gave me the nickname “Seanald” once upon a time and I can’t stand it, haha.

What do you do on AOTS?

My favorite question from any producer is, “Are you busy right now,” because as a PA, I am always busy. I’m constantly running around doing something, whether it’s feeding the hosts, being in ATN comedy bits, grabbing videos from the web, directing interns, shooting video for segments or writing the occasional Attack This script from time to time.

What is your favorite moment from the show?

I always crack up when the show goes off the tracks. As one of the few live television shows left, AOTS really shines when it messes up. When we accidentally aired Masterpiece Theatre at the beginning of the show or when we flashed a quick second of Vin Diesel holding a shot gun in the middle of an ATN comedy. I think that’s pure hilarity!

Do you have any passions outside of working at G4?

I’m a huge PC gamer. I spend a lot of my free time gaming with my friends back home or my friends I’ve met online from all over the world. Some of my best memories have come from video games, whether it was playing Warcraft with my cousins or PKing in Ultima Online.

So, how's it hanging?/ What it is?

I don’t even…
Did you go to school to do what you do?

Originally, no. I was in networking tech support for three years while taking night classes before I decided to quit and go to school full time to work in television. I got really lucky with an internship here on AOTS and ended up coming back after I graduated.
Who is your favorite artist?

Vincent van Gogh, because he was ballsy (or crazy) enough to cut off his own ear.

Where does it end?

The end of the world? I think it ends after everyone starts going to war over limited resources and we end up like the Mad Max movies… or at least that’s how I hope it ends.

What upcoming movie are you most looking forward to seeing and what video game are you most looking forward to playing?

Definitely Thor and X-Men: First Class. Right now, I’m drooling over the thought of playing Mass Effect 3 and Skyrim.

What is your biggest regret in life?

Missing out on the 80s!

What's your favorite event that G4 covers?

Comic-Con is probably my favorite because it covers everything from comics to video games to movies. What else is there?
