Another WonderCon come and gone in Anaheim. The convention is getting bigger every year, and for my own reasons (I live 10 minutes away) I hope it stays. It was a crowded for being a holiday (Easter) weekend and it had the old school San Diego feel to it, the way SDCC was 10-15 years ago. I was there all 3 days this year, working the floor and doing the panel again on Sunday. It was great to see everyone again and I think it was one of the best panels we have done 🙂 I was also glad to see a great turn out at the after meetup in the Hilton lobby! We are looking forward to the convention season this year, and to seeing everyone at San Diego! Here are some photos!
If you can’t make it to our panels please join our Meetup Group at http://www.meetup.com/FullTimePartTimeCreative/ and we will be back at San Diego Comic Con with the same panel as well!
Full Time Creative Work on a Part Time Schedule Panel
Sunday, March 31
3:30p.m. – 4:30p.m.
Learn the secrets to using part-time collaboration to achieve full-time results! No matter which industry (comics, illustration, movies, design, animation, costuming /cosplay), “breaking in” has never been more apt a term than in today’s media and is a full-time job, especially if you have only part-time hours to accomplish it. What will be discussed is how to approach organizing ANY group with a goal from hobbist to professional purposes, thus it applies to any interest of geek or creative culture. Hear Topher Davila (Art Director, GeekdomWear.com and Co-Creator/Co-Producer,”We’re Always Like This” ), Sean Glumace (Digital Arts Instructor at Golden West College and WordPress expert), Kevin Flessing (Co-Writer “We’re Always Like This”), Mario Martinez (Co-Creator, TomatoTV.net), Renah Wolzinger (Department Chair, Digital Media, Digital Arts and Design at Golden West College), Heather Joseph-Witham Ph.D. (Mythbusters and various TV), Ron Coleman (Molecular Geneticist and Writer) moderator Cat Smith (Voice Actress) talk about how they successfully juggle time between the creative and business sides while being involved in goal oriented groups and discuss the process, pitfalls, and potential of part-time collaboration from their experiences in illustration, writing, design, animation and live action filming from a variety of levels of experience in administration and sizes of organizations. Content will be a mix of speaking, questions and some short interactive applications where the audience can directly apply the topics covered. Whether you’re a hobbyist or looking to go pro, if you struggle with deadlines, need help finding collaborators, want to know how to effectively work with a team without mortally wounding each other or simply want to know how to get your foot in the door, this panel is not to be missed!
