Schedule 2.0 (tentative) and Panelist application

7/9/2014

Sorry for the delay on this everyone! I’ve been dealing with some real life stuff so am a bit slower than usual. My apologies!  Now, I already know that there are changes to this schedule due to some guest announcements but at least it gives you a ball park on some things.

I’m also including a few other things in this post.   A link to the panelist guidelines, and a link to the panelist application.   I try to keep a broad approach and will spread interested parties around to try and keep a balanced and fresh approach to the shows.  An application to the panel is not a guarantee you will be on it, just so everyone knows.

Schedule 2.0 (will be changing)

Here we go again! 2014 Planning

It’s that time again!  Time to start planning for DragonCon 2014!

This looks like it will be a big year for us!  I don’t know about you but there are so many genre shows available now that I have not been able to keep up with them!  This has really diversified fandom.   We all used to watch the same shows since that was all that was available, but not anymore!

The shows that this track will be covering this year are:

Almost Human

Game of Thrones
Arrow Haven
Big Bang Theory Helix
Believe The Neighbors
Beauty and the Beast Once Upon a Time
BSG Universe OUaT in Wonderland
Black Sails Outlander
Continuum Resurrection
Crossbones The Returned
Extant Spartacus
Fangasm Tomorrow People

Under the Dome

Bear in mind this list may change!

Thank you for a great year!

T+6 days

Now that con is over, I’m not sure how many will wander this way but I want to thank everyone who came out to the track and saw our wonderful guests and fan panels.   We had some great responses to pretty much everything!

From feedback, it sounds like everyone enjoyed both the Drive In Heckle-athon with Super Shark (literally and on screen!) and the Gameshow of Thrones.  Many of our panels were packed, which says a lot about you all!  I’m always open to your suggestions!   I have already decided that if we have the same room next year to re-orient the entire thing to be lengthwise.   We might still have some sound issues but hopefully it will be less.

Please if you have pictures of guest panels or fan panels that were a part of the track, please send them to me!  I want to set up a Gallery page here for us all to share!

While I can’t do much other than ask for specific guests, I can do something about programming for the track itself.  Please feel free to write me with any suggestions!

Updates – T minus 23 days

Current updates  

The schedule has been tweaked a little but I am pretty sure there’s at least one more change coming so am kind of waiting before I do all the wonderful table stuff for those pages.

I’ve gotten the Staff updates in for our mostly regular staff members.  We might have some new faces this year too so say Hi!

New guests added!

If you haven’t seen the notices we gotten so awesome new folks!  The amazing Lucy Lawless is finally coming to Dragon Con!  She’ll be on a Spartacus panel, and a BSG one, so keep an eye out for it!   We also welcome back Laura Vandervoort who will join our Smallville contingent this year.   Laura was a really sweet person and I’m sure you all will welcome her back!

Guest page updated

7/21 Updates

Current active guests are now on the Guest page, with links back to the main site for the bios.

Please be sure to check out the current schedule for the track!   And do not hesitate to volunteer to be on a fan panel!  Sure I look for people that have some experience but a passionate interest in the topic is what I look for as well as an understanding that you are willing to be a professional.  Check out the Programming page for all scheduling links and panelist info!

The first version of the schedule is up, but remember the usual disclaimer!  This in all likelihood will not be the last version of the schedule so be prepared for changes!  Check out the Programming page for that.

Interested in being a panelist?

First check out this information.   Yes, its a lot, and yes, unfortunately we have encountered all the bad stuff in here, so read it before you decide to commit.  I will expect you to be professional! Have fun but be professional.
