Behind the Scenes with Agents of SHIELD Declassified Author Troy Benjamin

"Keeping track of all the developments in any given season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is no easy task. Between documenting new costumes like HIVE, new ships like the Zephyr-1, new Inhumans like Lash and Hellfire, and new alien landscapes like Maveth, an archivist author like Troy Benjamin must be at the top his game to be able to assemble all of these details. Back for his third Marvel book — Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Declassified Season 3 — Benjamin has again compiled the most extensive looks at S.H.I.E.L.D. yet! I had the chance to chat with Benjamin about this wonderful book, and what other Marvel projects he might be involved in (spoiler alert, he’s already begun Declassified Season 4!) We hope you enjoy our interview with Benjamin and that you pick up your copy of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Declassified Season 3!"


Declassifying the Agents of SHIELD Season Two Hardcover with Troy Benjamin

"Earlier this week we gave you a hands-on look at the new Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season Two Declassified hardcover. Whether you're a diehard fan of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. or a casual viewer, the book is full of great insight, summaries, and behind the scenes information. Similar to the first volume, a high amount of production was put into the overall package.

Troy Benjamin is the lucky guy that gets to compile all the information and write up everything about the show for the books. It seems like a crazy process and we had the chance to talk to Troy about the book and what it takes to put it out."


Behind the Behind the Scenes: Johnny Bravo

I used to work at a production company that did DVD bonus features-- y'know, the "making of's" and whatnot. The best ones really take you behind the scenes. They aren't just rehashed EPK (press kit) material, but actual mini-docs (or in the best cases, feature length documentaries) that chart out the heroes journey of the film itself. Hell, I can even point to a few DVDs and Blu-Rays in my collection where the bonus features are better than the movies themselves.

For our inaugural article, I'm sitting down with my buddy, Troy Benjamin. Troy is an up-and-coming producer who has a real knack for this stuff-- including the headtwisting world of Blu-Ray widgety doo-dads. But Troy's real passion is linear content...and nerdy projects. Really awesome nerdy projects. Those gems that we grew up on? Troy's been lucky enough to have a hand in a lot of them-- and rightly so, the dude is passionate and talented, and approaches films and TV shows with a real reverence.

So, Geekweek, meet Troy...
