The tale of FilmCon. I almost didn't make the flight because I didn't have my birth certificate on me. They pull me aside and tell me I need to relinquish my US residency in order to travel without it. So I signed this form and off I go. But I can always get it back if I want, I just file another form and I'm good to go. So I get here and met Kyle for the first time. Great guy, very into the whole thing. Eric (the coordinator) is just bursting and animated as always. He did the marketing campaigns for Star Wars and he's already been dropping some useful tips on screenshots, previews and other nifty things we should do. This place looks amazing. I can't believe I forgot to bring my camera, well and the business cards too but that's pretty secondary. The Halls that are hosting these talks are amazing. Some guy did the most stunning Artwork of the key characters of Star Wars and Eric had them printed on 3 foot by 6 foot banners. Oh my freakin god. They're going to be auctioned off at the charity auction. The most impressive ones IMO are the Han, Luke, Ben Kenobi, and Vader. If anyone in this fanforce wants me to bid on one for them, I will gladly do so. Just inform me of what you would like your maximum bid to be and I can bid on your behalf. Eric will allow me to arrange payment afterwards with the winner. They're not posters, they are cloth banners with the most impressive artwork of the characters I've ever seen. And I've seen a lot. They're one of a kind original works. I'm going to see if I can get a FilmCon 5 banner as well. They have the logo printed on a red and black banner with the image of Vader on it. Luke, Leia, Han, The Emperor, Padme, General Greivous, Darth Vader, Obi Wan Kenobi. Post here with your max bids and character of choice if you're interested. Anyways, gotta get some prep work done for tomorrow. Updates to come. Oh yeah I gotta buy a cheese hat. No one goes to Wisconsin without buying a cheese hat. It's like going to Italy and not sampling the wine.
