My Best of Netflix Geeked!

so the story goes like this: August 2020 I got a random message from Geeked (then @NXonNetflix) asking for my email address. I freaked out cause, um, who sent you?! but I played it cool, sent the addy and tried not to trip.

eight. months. later. I get an email from a community manager at Netflix asking for my resume and some clips. before this point, I didn’t consider myself any good at social media. my own channels are good for going dark for weeks at a time (my poor Instagram smh), and tho I’d created campaigns for previous employers, those always came with very specific instructions and phrasings. but hey – Netflix found ME (somehow???)! the ask was simple: they were looking for nerdy freelance copywriting with a writer’s room, early access to shows and the freedom to create to your geeky heart’s content. bet.

my first campaign was Yasuke, the mecha-fantasy epic from Studio MAPPA and Flying Lotus. I created for multiple social media platforms for Castlevania’s final season, the brand’s first ever Geeked Week – a weeklong extravaganza of trailers, sneak peeks and other fun stuff, and became a go-to on the team for anime questions and new shows. I challenged myself to think outside the box, tap into my nerdiest desires, and create the type of workplace with innovation and transparency. in hindsight, mission accomplished.

for six wild months, I was one of the geniuses behind the brand. the Geeked team is full of some incredible individuals, and I can’t wait to see what they create in the future with the absolute BANGER of slated content on the way. below are some of the faves that I put together from Twitter, Instagram and TikTok. on this page alone are nearly 130,000 likes!

Twitter

simple yet incredible effective.
aka my life goals.

I can’t not mention: this thread on Yoko Kanno, a witcher family tree and 360 fight scenes.

Instagram

this one is wild cause I put it together for the edit test, and it did NUMBERS.
probably my favorite post cause Lesley Ann dropped some hearts in the comments.
the addition of Levi Ackermann here wasn’t a surprise to anyone who’s actually up.

I can’t not mention: dream vacation, young’uns and Lucas’ flat top.

TikTok

this easter egg hunt was fun. he KICKS a BUCKET.
again, simple but incredibly effective.

dynamic captions are so fun, but when you pair them with an already fun scene? *chef’s kiss*

I can’t not mention: Vesemir talking smack, Bears II Men and the Upside Down.
