BREAKING: BIg changes, Exhibitor applications are LIVE, Intervention Film Festival, masterclasses with Oni Hartstein and more to debut at Intervention 6

Hi guys!

This year many factors are in place such that I have the ability to make ReGeneration Who: The Doctor Who Convention for Every Generation fabulous and Intervention even more awesome than ever before.

When I say that this will be transformative, I really mean that. We’ve taken the Intervention vendors room, changed the idea, and incorporated it into the main programming (which is the main focus of our attendees) with event-driven collabs that not only are fun, but more heavily showcase the folks in there, facilitate foot traffic, and help them connect with those who want their work.

Imagine a trade show floor where the artists inside have the ability to hold events at their table or inside a panel. This elevates everyone.

The name of the game at Intervention is Showcase and Collaborate. We are also placing calls to action in related panels that will send folks in to the exhibiting artists which makes everyone an active participant in our family/collaboration atmosphere.

This is a huge upgrade to the design of our ecosystem. We are pulling the entire space together. I believe the artists and small geek businesses will love this very different and innovative approach to our festival. I think our attendees are going to get even more out of this as well.

If you want to show your work at the con this year, apply now.

Also this year our Video Room is now The Intervention Film Festival. Just like the integration of the Exhibitor’s Hall we are upgrading and integrating film programming. Prepare yourself for a weekend of Q&As with filmmakers and an array of classes regarding how to make your own films.

ALSO: FINALLY after 5 years of only 4 hours of sleep per night and incredible personal financial investment have enough staff that I can actually be heavily involved with teaching at Intervention instead of doing 1 or 2 quick unrehearsed panels before running away.

I realize many were sad that I have been so illusive/busy with back-of-house at Intervention. No more. You got me now and I plan to give you my best.

I’m going to be in there the majority of the time this year working on teaching specifically designed programming for indie artists, writers, and creatives of all types, writers. First comes a TRUE Marketing Masterclass where I talk about white hat, grey hat, and even black hat Marketing. You should NEVER use black hat, but you need to understand how to ID it when you see a jerk doing it. I’m already writing it all up. Even some Marketing Directors that I’ve worked with who get a six-figure salary have no clue about this stuff.

What good is making your stuff if no one ever sees it? I’m here to help.

Basically I’m going to Real Talk you with enough knowledge that this class alone would normally cost over $1000 per person at a school. I’m doing it FOR NO CHARGE except a registration purchase. There will be more than 1 class so there will be many opportunities to hear me speak.

All 3 days at Intervention is just $50 with daily passes being less so you can see what a bargain this is – I will not be the only master teacher doing this over the weekend. Big announcements to come.

Where am I going with all of this? I have a plan for the next 5-10 years which I won’t reveal all of, but my ultimate goal has never been a secret.

I’ve spent the last 15 years getting only 4 hours of sleep at night, personally paying out to do this, and working 3 jobs because I am building a business that I hope one day soon can be a year-round organization that puts this kind of stuff into the world for people. I want to work with schools, I want to write books, I want to fund programs and do something to help ease suffering of others so that they can get on their feet and feel good about their lives. I want that to be What We Do.

Thus far we have accomplished so much good. It’s not been easy for me. I could never have done any of this with you, my staff, my friends, my chosen con runner family. I love you guys more than you know. We did this together. US. And we will continue to do good things together.

Thank you so much for everything. Tell everyone you know to register for (Re)Generation Who and register for Intervention, and, if they can afford, please buy up to a VIP (ReGen) or Enabler Level (Intervention) those donation tiers are like Kickstarter and how we keep The prices as low as they are. The idea is to allow as many people as possible to participate. We try our best to that regard.

We will always fight for this. Community. Love. And LOLmonkeys.

As always, if you have something to teach and would like to get involved in our community of friendly and dedicated volunteers, contact us. See you at (Re)Generation Who on March 27-29, 2015, and then at Intervention August 14-16, 2015!

An Interview with Christian Beranek of The Webcomic Factory

Intervention 5 is artist and writer Christian Beranek’s first year attending our event. Her resume is nothing short of amazing, ranging from co-founding the expansive Webcomic Factory to helping create background content for movies such as Max Payne and Se7en.

What is your contribution to The Webcomic Factory?

I do a comic called Validation, a story about a trans girl trying to lead a fulfilling day-to-day life and who is also into geeky stuff like comics and conventions. Also, Tony and I collaborated on Post-Apocalyptic Nick, which is about a slacker who wakes up and has the world’s last working iPhone.

How did you get involved with your movie projects like Se7en and Max Payne?

I lived in L.A. for 6 years and worked with a bunch of comic companies. Zenescope got the rights for Se7en from New Line Cinema and I was able to pitch them a few story ideas that they were able to use.

For Max Payne, I was working with a company called Splastik, which is a company that does motion comics. They also help to do DVD bonus features, so I helped create a motion comic prequel to the movie that you can watch on the Max Payne Blu-ray.

What attracted you to Intervention Con?

As a webcomic creator, I just had to do the show at least once. Tony DiGerolamo, who has been here before, told me that I needed to check it out. Plus, this is my birthday weekend and I wanted something fun to do. And I love being around like-minded folks and talking comics and everything.

Intervention Talent Show (Ages 18+) (9PM Saturday, Panels Room 2)

There are no rules or regulations in this 18+, late-night staple of our gathering. If you can sing, perform stand-up comedy, or can showcase any other sort of talent, bring it to us and be judged! We’ll be hosting it as a Gong Style program this year.

As always, the entire weekend will be filled with engaging, informative, and of course interactive panels, our fabulous video game room, an opportunity to share your artwork on our wall (or even have it critiqued), and several LARPing games going on.

We look forward to seeing you here!
