Comic Con!

So I went to a Comic Con for the very first time. I couldn’t help but stare at the elaborate and creative costumes around me. Oh my gosh how I miss dressing up in costumes!

Press pass!

I had followed the team of Le Visiteur du Futur on Friday to make an English-language introduction to the series, and enjoyed hanging out so much that I decided to return on Sunday. This time bringing food. The food situation there isn’t the greatest, especially for a busy team running back and forth from autograph signings. Sunday was a madhouse! I was overwhelmed trying to make my way through the crowds, but luckily, Le Visiteur was part of the Ankama area, which had a large sign hanging from the ceiling that I could follow if I wasn’t too far away to see it.

The team was quite popular, and to get through the crowd and to their signing station quickly, sometimes disguises were used.

Here's looking at you

On Friday, I was kind of walking around in a daze, recovering from a bit of a cold (but I don’t want to call it a cold! It was my fault for staying up Saturday night fighting with the washing machine!), a purse full of tissues. On Sunday, it was François’ turn. I hope he didn’t get it from me. But some drugs and a little nap in the VIP room later, and he was as good as new! Sadly, he missed a bit of autograph signing, and I felt a little bad for the fans who would have liked to meet him.

It was quite a long weekend for everyone, I can’t imagine signing autographs for hours each day. Oh, and unlike the Buffy Reunion folks – for free. I’m disappointed with the example that our American actors set. Your fans are why you’re even here!! Anyway, that’s beside the point.

I met several nice people that I hope to work with in the future, and had a lot of fun just spending time with a great group of creative French people. I was a bit embarrassed that my French is still so poor that it is still near impossible for me to follow or join in a conversation, but everyone was sweet about it. And I’m not giving up!

I took a little video, though I am no filmmaker… I hope you enjoy a little backstage peek at Comic Con/Japan Expo 2013 🙂

And by the way, I turned into an elf.

Hey, I Know Him!

I’m sure that’s a phrase that everyone in the film industry has said at least once when sitting at the movie theatre. I’ve been told friends see me (well at least once, way back in Spider-man) and shout it out. It was my turn recently!

I was waiting for Iron Man 3 to start, chatting with my friend, when out of the corner of my eye I see a HUGE familiar face on the screen.

Double take.

It’s Raph from Le Visiteur du Futur! And then I saw my friend François (his brother, producer of the series)!

“Hey! I know him!”

But wait, there’s more!

Living Vicariously!

This weekend I decided it would be a good idea to go check out the LAWebFest, to see what’s going on and to meet some film peeps. On Saturday I attended the 11AM screening of some scifi web shows, including my friend François Descraques’ series, Le Visiteur du Futur. Honestly, The Visitor blew the other ones away. I would have loved to see more shows before the awards ceremony on Sunday, but life got busy and I didn’t look them up online. Because I mean, they’re all online. I don’t need to pay $10 an hour to watch them. I need to set aside some time to watch some of them and know what’s going on out there though.

But wait, there’s more!
