CUPID & EROS NEWS RECAP

The end of 2011 and the start of 2012 have been a bit of a worldwind, and as such, I've been very behind on posting some of the cool news related to "The Further Adventures of Cupid and Eros".  Here then, is a recap of some of the highlights of the last several months.

  • "Cupid and Eros" was nominated for "Best Supplemental Content" at the first ever IAWTV Awards.  It was a real honor to be part the Internation Academy of Web Television's inaugral kudos. One of the best parts was that we were nominated alonside our friends from "Vampire Zombie Werewolf", in part on the strength of the episode of "An Evening With Eros" in which their characters Tad and Bunny guest-starred.  It was a great example of the type of cross-promotion that I'm a big proponent of paying off.
  • Bradford Anderson was nominated for "Best Guest Appearance in a Comedy" at the 3rd annual Indie Soap Awards for his portrayl of the wounded warrior Achilles in episodes 7-9 of "Cupid and Eros"
  • "Cupid and Eros" was picked as one of the best comedic web series of 2011 by web series review show "Those Video Guys"
  • And last but not least, we released THE FURTHER ADVENTURES OF CUPID AND EROS: THE COMPLETE 1st SEASON DVDThe season 1 DVD includes all 9 episodes from season 1, plus tons of extra content, including all our IAWTV nominated supplemental content and exclusive commentary tracks.  The DVD, along with other C&E merch, can be purchesed here.

So all in all, not a bad way to end last year and kick off this one.
