SyFy's Hot Set

A few months ago, I had the privilege of joining SyFy Channel on a new show called Hot Set. But, as a first, I wasn't behind the scenes this time, I was actually starring in the show! Well, at least an episode of the show.

Hot Set is from the minds that brought you the make-up effects based sensation Face Off, only this time the focus is on the art of production design for film and television. Each week, two designers go head to head to design their version of a set based on an excerpt from a script.

Each designer is allowed to bring two team members that they usually work with. I was joined by Red5 and Amish, and our set theme was "Alien Queen".

It was a very different experience, creating a set as "competitive sport". Probably the closest I will ever come to "live performance art!"

It was quite the challenge, but we had a great time doing it. Curious how it turned out? You can now watch it online thanks to

It's so strange to see myself on television! Let me know what you think about how we did in the comments below.
