Orphan Black Projects

2013-2017

I am very active in the Orphan Black fan community. For the past few years I have run a popular (2,000+ followers) Tumblr blog dedicated to show analysis, creating fan art, GIF animations, and promoting a new fan website that myself (and a few fan friends) created at the behest of the show's science consultant (who a main character is based on). Clone Club Book Club is an online community where fans can go to discuss various show topics, related books, show themes, and news.  It also gives fans the opportunity to ask in-depth questions to the science consultant directly.

I was responsible for the site artwork, animations, and layout. It was a very collaborative project with all designers, programmers, and writers located in different states. We made good use of online collaboration tools like Trello.

Users have various categories to choose from. The more a user posts the more permissions they gain on the site. We wanted to encourage users to become admins, helping to regulate the community and share in creation of content.

UNCHARTED WATERS

I was given the opportunity to interview the Orphan Black science consultant (and inspiration for Cosima's character in the show) Cosima Herter and produce a stylized audio piece with the recording. This is her telling of the unexpected path she followed from academia to an award winning television production.

I compiled all of the the actor's quotes about the show/her character and put them into a word cloud. This is what I used for the portrait.
