My name is Andrea Justine Millard. I am currently 22 and a recent Radio-Television-Film graduate from the University of Texas at Austin. My nickname is “AJ,” and my social media identity is @aj_thetarsier. What is a Tarsier you ask? It’s a very small Happlorine primate which currently resides in Southeast Asia and is nicknamed for its elongated tarsal (i.e. foot) bones. I’m a personal fan of these little wide-eyed creatures along with all other apes and monkeys of the animal kingdom – hence why I use it as my social media name.
Here are pictures of the little dude. When you think of me, you can think of this little guy.
Aren’t they as cute and weird as ever?! Just like me! Just kidding.
I have been wanting to start a website for some time now to share my video/production content with the world. And maybe just write a post or two about monkeys, the entertainment industry, and maybe even monkeys working in the entertainment industry. What else is there to know about me? I am interested in film, television, video games, and theater. Therefore I watch and play A LOT of different media. Sherlock Holmes and Nancy Drew are my heroes; I love good detective stories (Shout out to more recent faves – True Detective and Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries).
I have played practically every Nancy Drew game developed by Her Interactive. I own the complete works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes and the B&W films with Basil Rathbone playing Sherlock. I am also a big fan of the BBC series, Sherlock (and I hold high respect for its creators Steven Moffat, Mark Gatiss along with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman as Sherlock and Watson, respectively). It should go without saying that because I enjoy Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss’s work, I also love Doctor Who. These are just “a few of my favorite things” (hint for future reference: I also enjoy musicals).
Now that you know some of the things I like, here is a little of my work:
This is just a sample of my work with the promise of more to come later.
For now – in the words of a famous goodbye in Her Interactive’s Nancy Drew,
¡Hasta La Pasta!
