Chelsea returns to the Vancouver Mini Maker Faire to interview David Repa from the Hackery, a unique computer repair and recycling shop that takes in your old computer hardware and lovingly restores it back to health. The Hackery is also something of a computer museum, with vintage Macs, Tandy 100s, Commodores, and even a neXT cube and teletype.
This week Video Free Skaro dives back into the world of Standard Action, a web series shot in Vancouver and set in a mythical land not unlike one that involves both Dungeons and/or Dragons. We talked to Standard Action director Rob Hunt and costumer and assistant director Vanessa Driveness, and we’ve got a sneak peek from a scene between a sassy kobold and Eric Fell, whom you may recognize from Blue Meanie and Skaromantic Comedy.
All this and news, Gally updates and so much more!
On this edition of Video Free Skaro, we talk to Tom Pickles, who has not only built a full-size functional Dalek but also a TARDIS, a Weeping Angel, K-9 and more! You may have seen his handiwork in Blue Meanie and Skaromantic Comedy…now meet the man behind the monsters.

It’s nerdlesque insanity at Video Free Skaro this week, with a peek at Geeks After Dark, the raucous monthly event featuring nerds, booze, burlesque and costumes. This month’s theme was Star Wars, with many a sexy Ewok and Hawaiian shirt clad Boba Fett in attendance.
We interviewed Fairlith Harvey, the organizer of Geeks After Dark, as well as her co-conspirator Cam Russell.
But that’s not all, we’ve also got news from Comic-Con! Truly, it is a great time to be a nerd.

On this episode of Video Free Skaro, we profile “Mind My Brains, Darling!” a webseries made in the style of “Are You Being Served?” and other British comedies of the Seventies, but with zombies. We also debut “Tom Baker Tonight,” an exciting foray into late night variety programming by a tiny, maniacal Tom Baker action figure. All this and the latest news, reviews, and superfluous pictures of Jenna Louise Coleman!
In this episode of Platformer, Chelsea brings us all the latest news, and Warren reviews the Roku XS, which recently debuted in Canada. Warren also dives into the forgotten world of abandonware, where great old games are preserved for the ages.
Kickstarter and IndieGoGo, for those not in the know, are two very popular ways to fund a project. While games, art objects, books and other creative pursuits can all be funded through these platforms, I’m more interested in indie movies, and have contributed small amounts ($15 for one film, $30 for another) to two projects.
I’m not doing so purely out of altruism…the systems set up a series of rewards based on how much you contribute, and my baseline is a 1080p digital copy of the film once it’s done. So really, I’m pre-ordering a film at the same time I help it get made. I don’t even have a DVD player anymore (other than the one inside my Macbook Pro) so for me, 1080p digital is the way to go.
Here’s the films I’m supporting, in my own small way…
On this episode of Video Free Skaro, not only do we have an interview with noted Doctor Who and Y the Last Man artist Pia Guerra, not only do we have a profile of the Myrka, the most despised villain in all Whodom, but we also have action figures making out. Yep, you read that right.
