ICYMI: Alex Kingston coming to Intervention!

Cr98MbGWYAAiFSG

If you were away on Saturday, you missed the big news — Arthur Darvill has had to cancel his Intervention appearance due to work, and Alex Kingston has stepped up to fill his spot at the con! We’ll miss seeing Arthur, but can’t wait to welcome Alex to the Intervention family!

Our programming schedule and descriptions now reflect these changes, as does our guest page. Our program books have already been printed, so they will still list Arthur as being in attendance; we apologize for any confusion or inconvenience this may cause.

Alex’s two panels — her career spotlight and her Doctor Who-centric panel — will be in Main Events at 8 PM Saturday and 12 PM Sunday respectively.

You can also pre-order autographs and photo ops with Alex for $58 each on our registration form, as well as adding Enabler levels (including Level 4 at $125, which gets you into our exclusive Meet and Greet event with a selection of our guests!). Don’t forget, pre-reg closes tomorrow night at 11:59 PM, so make sure to grab everything you want in advance! We will only be taking cash for autographs and photos at the con.

Five Questions with: Rachel Talalay!

RTalalay

Director/producer Rachel Talalay (Tank Girl, Doctor Who, Supergirl, Sherlock, and many more) will be joining us on Friday and Saturday of our event. But we caught her for a moment beforehand to chat about what she’s looking forward to later this month — and one big thing she’s looking forward to is talking with all of you!

 

InterventionCon: At Intervention, we take time to spotlight both fandom favourites and lesser-known creators. Is there a lesser-known creator you think our attendees should know about?

Rachel Talalay: I’ve been loving JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, but I’m not sure if really lesser known.
I am looking forward to making new discoveries.
Teach ME!

IC: Is there anything about your career now that you wish you’d known when you were just starting out?

RT: The great thing about my ignorance was that it meant I just fumbled forward and wasn’t thwarted.

I wish there had been female mentors available to me and I could have understood how important training and experience is. I didn’t even know what I didn’t know.
IC: If an attendee were to walk up to you at the event, what would you be most excited to chat with them about?

RT: I love talking about the actual work and fandoms and fans passion for other works, ideas, artistry. I like debating feminist issues. I’m happy to talk about my work, and love talking about Doctor Who, especially Heaven Sent. I am a bible of Nightmare on Elm Street — I once taught a 6 hour class on it. I like talking about Tank Girl. And I will happily talk about my movie “On The Farm” and the exploitation of women throughout the world.

On the other hand, I dislike generic questions “What’s a producer do?” “How did you get into the business? — which has a subtext of “can I follow your lead?”
Horrible questions are: “What it like working with…?” because the only answer to that is ‘great’, because I’m not about to drop some horror story, even if there is one. Do not ask me “What’s your favorite…? because trying to come up with one favorite paralyzes me — unless it’s something like ‘sports team’ or “chocolate chip cookie’ (Orioles/Tates)

I dislike being solicited for work or connections or things totally generic — ‘how do I become a director?’

I’m interested in the balance between fandom and the creator. I find this blurs in a way I don’t fully understand. I also like talking about moral complexity of the new political correctness. I like talking about allowing the world to have shades of gray, because ranters/haters are too black and white.

IC: Which of our other guests are you looking forward to seeing at Intervention?

RT: All of them, but I definitely want to go to the Thomas Dolby event.
I love Arthur Darvill — we worked together on Legends of Tomorrow.

IC: Is there anything else you’re looking forward to at the con?

RT: I love talking to the participants about what interests them.
I love hearing about people’s innovative ideas. I also like empowering diversity and change. Aand giving people the confidence to make their own choices.
Also, being a RockStar in my own mind is cool — well, sort of.


 

There will be lots more chances to hear from Rachel and our other guests — including Arthur Darvill, Thomas Dolby, René Auberjonois, and many more — at Intervention 7! Register now to join the party!

Five Questions With: Jon St. John

I16W02f2_JStJohn

Voice actor Jon St. John has an impressive CV, with credits ranging from the Sonic the Hedgehog series to Star Trek Online. But most video fan games will recognize him as the voice of the wisecracking, movie-quoting Duke Nukem.

Jon will be with us at Intervention this September, so we took a minute to ask him our five questions — about his career, the con, and what he’s most looking forward to!

InterventionCon: At Intervention, we take time to spotlight both fandom favourites and lesser-known creators. Is there a lesser-known creator you think our attendees should know about?
Jon St. John: I work with many independent game developers, so too many to mention in that arena…as far as artists, Danny Kang is a fantastic talent and I would like to see him get recognition.

IC: Is there anything about your career now that you wish you’d known when you were just starting out?
JSJ: Yeah – everything! But the VO business has changed so much over the years and has become so much easier thanks to technology. I wish I had taken my career more seriously in the beginning…I thought voice acting was a “side thing” to do while I was a radio personality and producer. Turns out – it’s the much better career choice.

IC: If an attendee were to walk up to you at the event, what would you be most excited to chat with them about?
JSJ: Games that they like and the types of characters that they love most in games. I want to land those roles…the ones players find most entertaining.

IC: Which of our other guests are you looking forward to seeing at Intervention?
JSJ: Todd Haberkorn and I are friends…I will enjoy hanging with Todd…but René Auberjonois is the fellow I most interested in meeting. I’ve been a fan of his work for many years.

IC: Is there anything else you’re looking forward to at the con?
JSJ: Yeah – party time!! I like to party with fans and friends, so join me for a shot of tequila, won’t you?

Find out more about Jon and our other guests this year on our Guests page — and if you haven’t registered yet, be sure to do so!
