For fans eager to learn our Guests unique insider perspectives into the cartoon, anime, and video games world, catching their discussions, tutorials, presentation, and panels is essential.
Remember the first time you saw Happy Tree Friends, before you knew what the joke was? You kind of wondered what your friend who said, “Dude! You have to check this out!” was so excited about. It was just a bunch of cute little animals doing stupid things until, suddenly…something happened and you got the joke. Series writers Ken Pontac and Warren Graff LOVE to see people get the joke for the first time, so bring a friend who’s never seen the show, and blow their minds a little.
The title says it all! If you like Cards Against Humanity, this is not to be missed. Ken Pontac, last year's loser, returns to defend his title. Which of our other illustrious Guests of Honor will be up for the challenge?
Come and find out helpful tips on creating healthy voices with Marianne Miller, professional voice actor and trained singer. This panel focuses on techniques on creating different characters that sound believable without ruining your vocal chords.
When the writer of MadWorld and Happy Tree Friends sits down with the voice of Duke Nukem and Big the Cat to swap war stories, you know sparks are gonna fly! Good thing the two animation veterans will each bring a bottle of their favorite libations to quench the flames. What did you THINK we meant by "exchange fluids," you filthy-minded degenerates?
Join LittleKuriboh, creator of Yu-Gi-Oh Abridged and expert beard grower, in a live Q&A session. There's also video screenings and other malarkey!
LittleKuriboh hosts a mature look into the makings of his fan based parody of a fan based parody. Will he become Third Hokage? Why is the Rower so amazing? Will the Abridged Movie ever be finished? Find out the answer to none of these questions right here!
Join Marianne Miller in a discussion about the presence of women and POCs in video games, anime, and TV Shows. This panel focuses on the good examples of strong non-white/non-male character writing and explores specific ways we can focus on improving future roles.
Join Noelle Stevenson (aka Gingerhaze) for a two-hour request-driven doodle free-for-all... from superheroes to Lord of the Rings to wacky fandom mashups (and yes, POKEYMANS!), request and ye shall receive. Click here for some of last year's masterpieces.
Fancy yourself an impressionist? It's voice versus voice! Take part in a live contest with LittleKuriboh as host as he pits you against a bevy of hopefuls in an attempt to out-voice the others!
The infinite void of the empty page, the crushing deadlines, the ridiculous demands of the executives… does this sound like the life for you? Decide for yourself when cartoon veterans Ken Pontac and Noelle Stevenson overcomes their Post Traumatic Stress Disorder to relate their anus-clenching adventures in the bloody trenches of television, feature animation, and comics.
Just joking, kids, writing for animation , video games, and comics is FUN!
