    security gaps in hogwarts

    As early as book one, we are told that Hogwarts is the safest place in the world, yet by the end of the first book, we are left wondering if Hagrid was being a little misleading in that claim. Detention in the Forbidden Forest, trolls in the girl’s bathroom, giant three headed dogs, a ‘protected’ Hallow that a trio of 11 year olds can retrieve, corrupted professors, and not to mention the fact that the Dark Lord makes an appearance himself. All that in just the first book! Throughout the course of the panel, our panelists take an in depth look at why saying Hogwarts is the safest place in the world couldn’t be farther from the truth. The panel leaves no stone unturned, with topics ranging from the basilisk, Marauder’s Map, dementors, Dumbledore’s actions, insider threats (Sorry Hagrid), Dolores Umbridge and more! Bring your house pride!

    the essential elements of a career in voice acting workshop hosted by erica schroeder (additional ticket required)

    This 2 hour seminar discusses all the elements of the essentials that are needed to begin pursuing a career in Voice Acting for Animation. I will define and breakdown the differences between pre-lay and ADR. We will discuss all of the particulars of the training, skills, background and lifestyle you will need to have and set up. I will talk about an actor’s “neutral” and what that means as well as an actor’s ability to “transform” from that neutral. I will suggest methods of study and training. In this seminar you will also hear the 25 different ways to assess not only your acting abilities but your likelihood to work in the business. This will in turn help you see what skill sets directors and producers are looking for to help you see what you need to work on and understand before jumping in with both feet. After we’ve discussed the training side of things, and the skill sets needed, we will learn some VO vocabulary essential to understanding everything from in studio auditions, to home auditions, to sessions and bookings. Last but not least, we will discuss the nature of the business. This will encompass everything from work ethic and communications to seeking work and knowing all of the rules. This is a no BS class. I will be direct and detailed. I will not be blowing smoke, asking to be worshipped or asking you to drink any Kool-Aid afterward. I look forward to genuinely helping you understand the training, skills, vocabulary and business better from the inside out.

    gribble talk: fan theories and conspiracies

    Everybody loves a good conspiracy theory, but none more than Arlen’s favorite conspiracy theorist: Dale Gribble. Dale himself has been lucky enough to stop by some of these so called “Conventions” to talk about some of his very favorite fan theories, and whether or not they make sense. Was Jar Jar Binks actually a Sith Lord? Was Scooby Doo a test subject from the Cold War, on the lam from Soviets? Was Jack Dawson actually a time traveler sent back to the Titanic? Was it really poisoned wine that killed Vizzini in the Battle of Wits with the Dread Pirate Roberts? Has Dale unlocked the secret to why Ash Ketchum doesn’t age? Hosted by a professional character actor, be prepared to bring your favorite crazy theories and join the discussion on how our favorite fandoms might be different than we believe them to be.

    Dale Gribble is presented by Karl Brevik, a member of SAG/AFTRA. Fans of King of the Hill enjoy getting the chance to see one of TV’s favorite conspiracy theorists in action while fans of every other fandom get the chance to talk about the theories that are most important to them.

    the nerd off

    Just because we are all nerds doesn’t mean we are all on the same side or know what the heck we are talking about when it comes to a fandom. During this panel hosted by YouTuber RealBreakingNate two audience members at a time will debate on which is better and why. For example a single round debate could be who would win in a battle Batman vs. Iron Man or which franchise is better Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter? Has this description already started an argument? Then this is your type of panel. Oh and did I mention…..PRIZES!

    j. jonah jameson v. the crowd

    J. Jonah Jameson himself is being flown in from New York on his latest press tour to discuss a variety of topics such as why Spider-Man is a menace, why Spider-Man can’t be trusted, why Spider-Man isn’t a hero and why we would be better off without Spider-Man. Have a differing opinion? That means it’s up to you, the audience, as guest reporters to this press conference to prove it. Square off against a professional character actor to see if you can be the reporter that forces the Daily Bugle’s editor to announce a rare retraction. Listen to Jameson’s editorial, hear him answer the panel’s reporters and then prepare your own defense of Spider-Man in this interactive, entertaining, performance based panel.

    J. Jonah Jameson is presented by Karl "Captain K" Brevik, a member of SAG/AFTRA, that has been featured by Marvel.com as this character. Stan Lee himself has called him "J. Jonah Jameson in real life." See for yourself as he tries to talk his way out of anything thrown his way. Full of audience participation, it’s a mix of a stand up act, a roast, a Q&A and a good old fashioned share of Spider-Man knowledge.
