Over the years, Intervention has expanded its scope to include creators beyond the webcomic world. This year, we’re bringing in lots of indie filmmakers and storytellers to share their experiences with you, and we’d like to introduce you to just a few of them today!

Jabraan Ismail is the director of the award-winning documentary We Wanna Make a Movie, which has been lauded at many film festivals.

Filmmaker and producer Michael C. Dougherty is the president and co-founder of Big Damn Films, the makers of the popular fan film Browncoats: Redemption. BDF’s films go the extra mile in crowdfunding, charity fundraising, and raising awareness of causes: the aforementioned Browncoats: Redemption raised over $117,000 for charity. His next film, Z*Con, promises to accomplish the same. Michael will be at Intervention to help you learn what it takes to get your work seen, raise awareness of causes, and leverage social media to promote your work.

Her production company, Nine Hour Films, has released many projects, included the recently completed Good Game, a documentary following professional gamers. She, too, has found creative and innovative ways to use the Internet and social media to bring attention to her work, including screenings on Twitch.tv and participation in the first Humble Bundle to include films. And she’s ready to help you learn to do the same!

There are still more guests to spotlight before the con. Keep an eye out to see who’s ready to meet you at Intervention and help you learn to make your creative projects soar!

You Can Test a Brand New Card Game & Get Credited for It!

Every card game from Magic: The Gathering to Munchkin couldn’t have entered the gaming world without abundant testing. Now, you personally have the opportunity to test out a brand new card game before it even comes out–and get credited for it!

Nestled inside the board game room, you will find Dan Palmer and Martin Brandt’s upcoming card game “Dead Future,” based on their webcomic of the same name. Palmer explained that they will be welcoming testers for the game throughout the weekend and, if they provide their name on an accompanying survey, will be given credit once the game is released.

“It’s an apocalyptic battle royale for 2 players,” Palmer said, when asked to describe it.

Palmer went on to say that there are already plans for future expansions, including a possible board game. Not only will expansions be able to fold into the original game (thus reducing the cost to gamers), but they also will have the ability to change the entire direction or plot of Dead Future entirely.

Dead Future plans to hold a Kickstarter in January and is hoping for a Spring 2015 rollout. Check out Raven Warren Studios’ website for more information.
