BREAKING: Intervention 7: The Intersection of Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Future Media launches; many celebrity guests already announced for our biggest year yet!
GUYS. It’s time to let the cat…er..owl out of the bag. This year Intervention is leveling up in a MAJOR way. I’m pleased to announce that we are partnering with many fabulous guests unlike ever before to bring you the best Intervention yet.
I am proud to introduce to you our expansion: Intervention 7: The Intersection of Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Future Media
Intervention in Rockville, Maryland is proud to announce a major expansion for its 7th year bringing you a “Dragon Con-style” Sci-Fi and Fantasy experience to the Mid-Atlantic area. (Don’t worry – the great creator-based programming you know isn’t leaving – it’s a pure expansion where fans get a lot and creators get a lot and everyone wins!)
“I’ve always been a huge fan of Dragon Con-style conventions but it was tough for many of my friends to travel that far. I’m incredibly happy to be able to bring that to Maryland and implement it with the same family-friendly, community-centric point of view that permeates (Re)Generation Who, my Doctor Who convention.” – Intervention and (Re)Generation Who Founder and Showrunner, Oni Hartstein
Joining us this year is:
Gigi Edgley – “Chiana”, Farscape
Todd Haberkorn – Voice Actor: “Hetalia”, “Fairy Tale”; Actor: “Spock”, “Star Trek Continues”
Robert Axelrod – Voice Actor Lord Zedd, Power Rangers
Pete Abrams – Sluggy Freelance
And of course James and I will be here doing presentations about the arts, marketing, and web design. I have a few secret creative projects that will be revealed soon:
Oni Hartstein – Con Chair of Intervention / (Re)Generation Who / Onezumiverse
James Harknell – Con Chair of Intervention / (Re)Generation Who, Work on: Stupid and Insane Defenders Against Chaos / My Annoying Life / AWSOM.org / Erfworld / Skin Horse / Sluggy Freelance
Click here to see the full guest list and bio information so far. We have many more guests to announce. This is just the beginning.
You might ask if the idea behind Intervention is changing. No, it is not. We always will be first and foremost about the arts and the community. Intervention is simply getting bigger, better, and able to welcome more fans than ever before so that we can make even more of a positive difference in the fan community. This is huge. More announcements will come out quite soon.
I see that many of you have figured out we’ve opened registration for attendees, artists, and vendors this morning and area already registering! I love you guys. Registration for everything is now open.
Register as an Exhibitor. NOTE: Due to space limitations we only have 25 tables this year. They will sell out fast.
New for 2016: Creator Spaces:
NEW FOR 2016: Register for a Creator Space!
The “Creator Space” is a set of tables located in the hallway of Intervention’s function space, with the ability for any registered person attending the event to have the ability to sign up daily to get a half-table spot for the day in the Creator Space. There is no charge for this. Intervention is all about fan creativity and collaboration, so this is a great place to congregate with other artists and collaborate on things that our attendees can watch and/or participate in.
The creator can stay for as long as they want at their table spot. When the creator decides to leave their space (for an extended time, bathroom breaks are fine), the spot goes up for grabs to the next person on the waiting list for the day.
There will be a limited number of 1/2 half table spots available. This space provides a great chance for people to get their work in front of the rest of the event with no additional cost. Stay as long or as short as it makes sense to you to do so. Show off your work on one day, or sign up on multiple days. If you are the type of person that wants to have a dedicated spot where you can set up a more elaborate display, and have your items locked and secured overnight, you can apply for our Exhibitor Hall instead, which gives these and other benefits.
Make sure you’ve registered for Intervention. I’ll be announcing more things soon. Also make sure you’ve checked out and registered for my other convention, (Re)Generation Who: The Doctor Who Convention for Every Generation in Hunt Valley, MD this March 18-20! I’ll see many of you guys there as well!
Apparently I dislike sleeping or free time. It’s worth it. :)
