It was the best of times, it was the…wait. No, it was pretty much an epic adventure the entire way through. Ever since my first D*C, I’ve looked forward to Labor Day weekend like a 5 year old waiting for Christmas. For 5 days my extended family consists of almost 40k geeks, nerds, fan bois/grrrls, Trekkies, wookies, and Storm Troopers. And just like family, I don’t have to like all … Read the rest

Usually we have a 3-man crew (with the lead actors helping out as well), but for more ambitious scenes we get a couple more volunteers. When we started out, the only real gear we had were the monopods, tripods, and Rick’s SmallHD monitor. But a few equipment companies … Read the rest

Let the blackmail begin! Videos from DragonCon 2010!
