Greetings, friends!

I am an actor, creator, feminist, gore-hound and all around nerd-extraordinaire from Austin, TX. I'm mostly known for my work on popular Rooster Teeth shows such as Red Vs. Blue, RWBY, Camp Camp, DAY 5 and more. I'm also beyond happy to say I am the current voice of Harley Quinn for DCUO!

I have been an avid horror fan since I was a child and I truly believe it to be the perfect genre, despite its history with negative female representation. Twice a month the fabulous Dawn Humphrey and I break down our favorite and our not so favorite films on our Women In Caskets horror podcast now on the Bloody Disgusting Podcast Network.

I am surprised and honored to say I am the winner of the 2016 Austin Chronicle Readers Poll for Best Non-Chronicle Film Critic! Which means at least more than 5 people listen to us, so that's fun! If you have yet to check us out, I would definitely recommend you do so as it is a wonderful sneak peak into how my mind works :)

Now that's out of the way, let's get down to business!

JEN BROWN PLAYS

Trying to get original content made will take A LONG ASS TIME... In the meantime, Barrett thought "Hey, let's embarrass Jen on Twitch!" My nerdy and wonderful partner Barrett loves video games. So do I. However, I'm pretty abysmal at playing most games unless they are Tell Tale style. That's where Jen Brown Plays on Twitch comes in! Every week I will post a poll where my Patreon subscribers get to pick which game I play on Wednesday at 8:30 pm CST on my Twitch channel. I also stream on Sundays from 1-3 pm and Mondays from 8:30-10ish pm. Sometimes I'm good. But I often end up cussing and singing about how bad I am. Plus, the lovely Barrett is there as well and sometimes we'll play together. It's a grand ol' time.

BROWN RECLUSE FILMS

After thinking long and hard about what I love doing the most, I realized it was time for me to start putting my money where my mouth is and start creating content. I successfully produced theatre in Austin for 5 years as the co-artistic director of The Vestige Group. I'm ready to take that experience and apply it to film with the help of some talented friends and collaborators from said film world, of course. That's where BROWN RECLUSE FILMS comes in. That is what I am calling my potential horror production company. Get it? Brown recluse spider. Jen Brown. Yeah. I'm a bloody genius. Your contributions will help me get closer to my vision of starting this company. There are a couple of projects in gestation and here is just a tiny little bit of teaser information about two of them:

MARVIN
Over a year ago I finished co-writing my first horror feature film entitled MARVIN. I approached my good friend and collaborator Rafael Ruiz with an idea for a horror short and we quickly expanded it into a wildly gory, unique and fun full-length film. I enlisted my stupidly talented best friend and playwright Bastion Carboni to add his unique take to the story and the result is something I couldn't be prouder of! 

To put it very simply: It's like Martyrs meets Frances Ha with a heavy dose of gentrification. 

SAVAGE WORLD
This will be an animated series of ten short episodes for the first season. It takes place at "Rick Savage's SAVAGE WORLD". A haunted house attached to a failing amusement park run by a fading 80's goth/glam rocker named, you guessed it, Rick Savage. It is an entire work of fiction. Except for the fact that it is all loosely based on my real experiences as a haunted house employee at Alice Cooper's Brutal Planet at Six Flags when I was in high school. Other than that it's ALL FAKE. It is a comedy but NOT for children. 
  
Well, there ya go! While the production company is a far off dream, your help with Jen Brown Plays knows I have the support to make it happen for real.

With your $1 donation (Or, more. I don't control you) you will have a chance to pick what I play most Wednesdays on Twitch at 8:30pm CST.

If you took the time to read this, THANK YOU! You are special. Reading is hard these days. Also, if you decide to contribute just know that you are greatly appreciated and will now be known as a SUPER special.

Cheers!
Jen Brown
