Anne Rice talks Vampires and Jesus: I Am Second campaign is preaching Jesus, reaching millions

Author Anne Rice starts her testimony while sitting, hands folded, in a white chair.

Rice talks directly into the camera. She is a former atheist and well-known novelist who wrote Interview With the Vampire and other vampire-themed books. She explains how the vampire fantasy explores loss of faith and the struggle between good and evil and how people cope when cut off from God -- all once aspects of her life.

Rice has reconnected with Jesus Christ and recently began sharing her story through the increasingly popular I Am Second campaign.

Check out “Vamped Out,” a new Web and mobile video series

If you’re a vampire fan looking for some entertainment to sink your teeth into, you might want to check out “Vamped Out,” a Web and mobile video series debuting at on April 12.

Babelgum, an integrated Web and mobile video content platform, has partnered with actor Kevin Pollak on the series. Pollak will be making his directorial debut with “Vamped Out,” which he also co-created and will star in, according to a press release.

Other cast members include Jason Antoon (“Kings,” “Minority Report”), Samm Levine (“Freaks & Geeks”, “Inglourious Basterds”) and Seana Kofoed (“Men in Trees”).

“Vamped Out” is a weekly series taken from a documentary by award-winning filmmaker Elliot Finke (Pollak). During the spring and summer of 2009, Elliot shot what he believed was the first documentary of an actual vampire. While in postproduction, he went missing.

The show follows a modern-day 35-year-old struggling actor/vampire (Antoon) trying to make a living in Los Angeles and getting continuously rejected for the role he was literally born to play.

Five new episodes will air consecutively each Monday after the April 12 premiere on the Web and will be accessible through Babelgum mobile platform’s Comedy Channel as well.
