Super Knocked Up

 

Jessica James is the most kick-ass super-villain on the planet.  But… she just got knocked up.  By Michael Masters.  A womanizing superhero.  Now Jessica must raise the baby with her nemesis.  Yikes!

 

Jeff Burns – Writer/Producer/Director

 

Jeff always wanted to be a superhero. But since he doesn’t have any superpowers (except the power to be super-geeky) he decided to make a web series about superheroes and villains instead. He first got the film bug in college where he and his friends improv-ed an entire movie for fun.  The film was about an evil twin, pimps, and Darth Vader. Deciding to make more professional and less ridiculous sounding films, Jeff made his first real short after grad school, even though he had no idea what he was doing.

 

He’s now in Season 2 of his web series Super Knocked Up, which has been seen over 2 million times!  The series has been an official selection at LA Webfest, HollyWeb, ITVFest, FirstGlance, Marseille Web Fest, Melbourne WebFest and recently won The Geekie Award for Most Original Web Series.  Super Knocked Up is also part of the lineup of online TV networks Blip, KoldCast TV, and JTS.

 

When he’s not making films, Jeff tutors high school students and is co-founder of Dyslexia Consultants where he helps students with learning disabilities improve their writing and critical reasoning skills.

 

One of Jeff’s dreams recently came true when he got to be on the Webseries Creators Assemble! panel at San Diego Comic-Con.  Super Knocked Up is based on Jeff’s actual life. Okay, not really. But he would really like to date a hot super-villain!
