Intervention 2013 will be showing a wide selection of movies and video in our Video Room this year. Some of the highlights are:
Margee Kerr – Scare U
Movie Rating: (PG-13) Margee has extensive experience in research, co-authoring scholarly articles on the history of medicine and doctor/patient communication. She is also a nationally recognized expert on professional haunted houses. She was a featured presenter at The American Sociology Association’s annual meeting in 2005, HauntCon (National Haunted Attraction Convention) in 2012, and at TransWorld (the largest national haunted attraction convention in the world) in 2013.
Margee works year round for ScareHouse consulting with the creators and owners on how to be scientifically scary and in developing, implementing, and analyzing data on customers and employees. In 2012 Margee helped to create, write, and host the “Scare U” web series with the ScareHouse which aired in October of 2012. Scare U presents fast‐paced and entertaining lessons all about fear, covering everything from the evolution of the fight or flight response to the fear of zombies and clowns, to why people love to be scared.
Margee will be presenting some of her work and doing a Q&A.
Endlight Entertainment – Ninjas Versus Monsters
Movie Rating:(R) The folks at Endlight Entertainment are based in the DC Metro area and have enjoyed success with their cult films NINJAS VS ZOMBIES and NINJAS VS VAMPIRES. Started by Screenwriter/Director Justin Timpane, Endlight has grown to include a small army of talented artists and technicians all dedicated to bringing microbudget films to the next level! Their next project is NINJAS VS MONSTERS which we will be showing along with their previous work.
Movie Rating: (PG-13) Browncoats: Redemption is a crowd sourced, independent film set in Joss Whedon’s Firefly/Serenity universe, and was made by Michael Dougherty, writer and director of the film, and Big Damn Films, inc. as a project to help fund a group of worthy charities. Intervention will host a showing of the movie as well as a Q&A with Michael Dougherty.
Vidgle.tv – Con Drama
Movie Rating: (PG-13) Intervention 2012 will be the first convention to show the full length video “Con Drama” created by the crew at Vidgle.tv. This short film relates the misadventures of a group of friends sharing a room at a convention. In their words: “If you’ve been to a con with your friends, you might know the drama that goes on in your room. Con Drama is a film about that.”
Cinematic For The People
Movie Rating: (PG-13) Cinematic For The People (CFTP for short) is a live-action bad movie riffing expereince, with an emphasis on the Live and a lesser one on the Action. While a “movie” (and we use that term loosely here, folks) plays on the big screen, our panel of “celebrity” (also used loosely) riffers will do their best to rip the movie a few new sprocket holes. CFTP aims to be a full-feature experience, akin to watching an episode of MST3K live (with a generous touch of Rocky Horror thrown in) – complete with host segments, silly outfits, and a cameo appearance by our own suspiciously Servo-esque “Mr. Hal Sirveaux” at some point during the event. There will also be prizes, audience participation, and may even be a singalong at some point.
Richardson Productions LLC – Harvey Putter and the Ridiculous Premise, Dork of the Rings
Movie Rating:(PG-13) Intervention is pleased to offer its attendees a showing of the feature-length Harry Potter parody film, Harvey Putter and the Ridiculous Premise as well as the Lord of the Rings Parody film Dork of the Rings, both by Richardson Productions. For those of you that want to own a copy of either film Intervention will be selling copies of both at our merchandise and registration tables as a fund raiser for the event!
