Smile of the Week: New “Written by a Kid” Series with Dave Foley and Joss Whedon

posted by Nell Minow

Could Joss Whedon be any more lovable?  He creates smart, provocative, and funny television shows with strong and fascinating female characters.  He directed one of the biggest movies of the year, “The Avengers.”  And now he stars as an action hero in “Scary Smash,” the first in a new “Written by a Kid” series on Felicia Day’s “Geek and Sundry” YouTube channel.  The short film also features Dave Foley in a tragic role as The Milkman and Kate Micucci as a member of the “S.Q.U.A.T” team.

Be sure to check out the behind the scenes “making of” videos on Geek and Sundry, too!  Cheers to director Daniel Strange, animator Evan Larson, and the wonderful Felicia Day and I can’t wait for the next one
