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.

GUEST ANNOUNCEMENT: Alex Kingston coming to Intervention!

Due to a work conflict, Arthur Darvill has sadly had to cancel his appearance at Intervention. We will miss having him at the event this year, but wish him all the best.

However. Intervention is a family event, so we’re getting some last-minute help from another Pond. Rory might not be able to make it, but his daughter Melody can…

Please welcome River Song herself, Alex Kingston, to Intervention 7!

While our program books will not be able to reflect this change as they’ve already been printed, our programming schedule on the site and our order form for autographs/photo ops will. If you have preordered autographs or photo-ops with Arthur Darvill, you will be contacted shortly to rectify this issue.

If you’re already registered for this year, you can now pre-pay for autographs and photo-ops with Alex over on our registration form. And if you haven’t and would like to, you have until Tuesday at 11:59 Eastern to get your badge at the pre-reg price of $60! After that, we’ll be taking at-door registration only for $65.

See you in a week, sweeties!

Prereg ends TUESDAY! Get your badge now!

This Tuesday at the end of the day, September 13 at 11:59 PM EDT, preregistration for Intervention 7 will close! That means you only have a few days left to get a weekend pass at the prereg price of $60! After that, you can buy a weekend pass at the door for $65 (provided we don’t hit our attendance cap).

$65 is still an awesome price for a weekend full of panels with guests like Arthur Darvill and René Auberjonois, hands-on panels and workshops, and a special two-hour multimedia presentation courtesy of Thomas Dolby. But if you want the best possible price and the least time in line before getting right to the cool stuff, preregister online now! You can also purchase autographs and photo-ops in advance for some of our guests!

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!
