You only have a short time until we will have to shut off pre-registration, so it’s best to get your tickets now. Pre-reg will be open all of this week and we will be announcing the date that we close it after this Friday. They are more expensive if you buy them at the door and with an event schedule and guest list this amazing, it’s truly going to be a once in a lifetime event this year.

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!
