Week #2 The Team Welcome To Tulip

Meet the team behind Welcome To Tulip! Gio, Holly, and Aaron discuss what inspires and motivates them, how they roped Aaron into the project, and who is funniest of the three. It's not Aaron.

Kyla Ferrier - Hands in Everything

Kyla Ferrier - Hands in Everything

We believe that even if Kyla didn't have hands she would be able to still find her way into an iPhone, complete a seamless butt tuck, edit footage into funny teasers for our social media pages and feed us a pot full of chili with cheese grated by her own...(meh, you fill in the blank). Honestly, if we could make her legally bound to us we would. Yet, since that is considered to be slavery...we are discussing the possiblity of sewing her on to our skin. She's that awesome. Who needs a tat when you got that cat? I won't say another word.

Jason Benson - Those Eyeballs

Jason Benson - Those Eyeballs

We are so glad we rescued Jason from off a street corner one lazy Saturday afternoon. No? We didn't? Well, that's great. That is just great! I thought we DISCOVERED this guy? Guess not. Guess he's been hoovering around Van-uber for a while. Nonetheless, we're glad we tracked him down like a bloodhound dog and have him shooting our little town of Tulip. We wish we had a Vulcan-mind lock over him but somebody said that's crazy. So, we're going to keep him onboard all uniquely himself with his own hilarious follow through. Oh yeah and his eyes are blue so they are super good at seeing stuff.

Julia Church - The Pump It Voice

Julia Church - The Pump It Voice

We love the way this girl thinks, laughs, ungulates, pokes, and balances the business and creative. Her branding mind is GOLD and she knows how to stay out of the red. Plus, when she isn't giving us her 2-cents worth of advice (Ju, I keep telling you to charge more!), she's on-set shooting behind-the-scenes footage, printing it, propping it, and fixing it. OH! Julia's also a successful entrepreneur who designs swimsuits that make all girls badonkadonks look sick (as in wicked) (as in hot) (as in MAGIC). Riccardo DiBankaba's a fan of Julia's genius and you should be too!

Mathias Fast - Sexy Focus

Mathias Fast - Sexy Focus

I know what you are thinking, why the heck is this guy behind the camera? Well you internet piranhas, if you saw how he can hold a camera, adjust lighting, articulate and execute all the needs we have on set you wouldn't be so superficial would ya? Besides, Holly and Mathias grew up together so it is fun to get to play again, and again, and again, and again. Plus, if you're ever in the Vancouver area and you want a photo of you looking good for once (or twice for those lookers) call this wealth of talent up! He is always ready and willing to create the extraordinary out of the ordinary.

Oh, the life of Tulip's ComedyCoupers

Oh, the life of Tulip's ComedyCoupers

Phew! After the Week 2 team video you discovered that Aaron is a REAL PERSON...not just the cutie above Gio and Holly's bed. Plus, without him this love affair with Welcome to Tulip you got going on would never happen. Yeah, Gio and Holly are swell. Sure. Of Course. You love them too. Well, THANKS; because we believe that dedicating every waking (and sleeping) hour to WELCOME TO TULIP is going to land us with a 1/2 hour special on CBC. We may be off our rockers, but going completely mad is Piscasso friends!

    Your certainly a nice couple and I liked the the way you slipped the wedding picture in there. Congratulations on making it to the final 55. The humor and the weakness in the filming and plat are gonna hurt you but admire the effort. Best wishes.

    I am very impressed by the range of skills and funny your team brings to this; you can actually make this show happen. Your team descriptions, your voice is hilarious. It shows a genius comedy that will ripple throughout your show. You are clearly loving this, and that passion will get you far. I cannot wait to see more!

    Original is right. It is easy to get associated with a lot of fantastic other comedies out there, but we know we have something completely different. I am glad you see it even in our 90 second videos. We feel like we are growing a really cool looking squash...with ears.
