FBT INVADES CONNECTICON 2012′!

As promised,  I’m back, and chock full of coverage from my day at ConnectiCon 2012′! I attended the Con on Saturday (June 14th) along with my good buddy/awesome artist/ Marshal Couture (www.plexhop.com). It was held at The Connecticut Convention Center, in Hartford Connecticut, June 13th-15th.

ConnectiCon was billed as a ‘Multi-Genre’ convention, and it was in many ways. Cos-Players were in abundance, gaming tables were everywhere, Anime panels & screenings of upcoming films were showing, and the general vibe of the Con was great, but a lack of comic book culture left Marshal and I feeling like strangers in a strange land.

Don’t get me  wrong, I support Geekdom, and its many incarnations, but comic books just happen to be MY thing. A Handful of Comic Artists and vendors were present, and we had the pleasure of getting to know a few of them (shouts to: Stacie Ponder, Sticky Comics, Mike Costello & Tina Pratt, Joe Hill, Kristilyn, Garth Cameron Graham, John McDowell, David Woodward, Dern & O-Abnormal, Nick Palazzo, Out At Home Comics, and Zack Finfrock) I just hope that comic book culture will be a bigger presence at ConnectiCon 2013′.

Marshal and I had a great time overall. The convention hall was spacious, allowing for easier navigation around the Con (I’m used to the madness of NYC Comic Conventions)  There was also a large seating/rest area (to take a break from the action), and we scored ourselves some cool swag to boot! I highly recommend attending next year’s Connecticon if you are into any of the above, it’s the little Con that offers a lot. Thanks for having us as your guests ConnectiCon 2012′! We’ll be back  😉

PS-Check out some pics from our adventure at ConnectiCon 2012′ below, and make sure to drop by Marshal’s podcast for even more coverage of the event.

BACK FROM THE GRAVE!!!

Well, not quite…I have been gone five whole months due to personal reasons. Things have changed in my life (some good, some painful) that made me realize a big change is in order. Therefore, I will not be able to update Fanboy Theatre as much as I’d like to. So, I’ve considered taking on a team of fellow fan film journalists to provide new material on a more regular basis. If you would be interested in helping out FBT, please drop me a line at fanboytheatre@hotmail.com. I am looking for fan film reviews, fan film news (projects in the works, etc.), comic book projects, comic book reviews, and anything else you might think worthy of a mention here at FBT. I look forward to hearing from You Guys and Gals! 🙂

In other news, I will be attending ConnectiCon on Saturday July 14th along with my good buddy, and fellow Fanboy, Marshall Couture. I’m pretty psyched to cover this event, being it’s the first convention i have covered outside New York. So come on down to The Connecticut Convention Center and get your Geek on with Us! See ya’ there folks!

Best,

Fanboy Will

FANBOY WILL INTERVIEWED BY THE GEEK SPEAK SHOW

Yesterday I had the pleasure of chatting with Henry and Romo from The Geek Speak Show. I answered some basic questions about Fan Films, Fanboy Theatre, dropped a couple of names, and tried not too embarrass the Fan Film community too much. You can check out the show here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wte5MeB6pi8. Thanks for the love guys!

FAN FILM OF THE DAY-ATOMIC MAN VS. MARTIAN INVADERS

Today’s FFOTD is an oldie, but a goodie, from the Godfather of Fan Films Himself, Mr. Donald F. Glut. Atomic Man Vs. Martian Invaders was made way back in 1967, But Glut’s camera work, and all around creativity, make this short a true classic. You can check out Mr. Glut’s website here

If You would like to hear an interview with Mr. Glut I conducted for My podcast (The Fan Film Podcast)  along with fellow Fan Film maven Chris Moshier (www.fanfilmfollies.com) Please click HERE.

Enjoy til’ your head explodes!!

FBT PRESENTS-FAN FILM OF THE DAY!

Hey Ladies and Gents, I decided to start up a new feature here on FBT that’s sure to satisfy all of you fellow Fan Film nuts out there, Fan Film Of The Day! FFOTD will spotlight a different Fan Film everyday from Action, to Horror, and everything in between.  Since life has been hectic of late I don’t get a chance to update as often as I used to, or would like to,  so FFOTD will be a great way to get your fix while I’m away.  For our very first installment of FFOTD I figured it would be a poetic move, of sorts, to go with a film by the Director of the very first Fan Film I have had the pleasure of reviewing, The Nightmare Ends On Halloween. The Director is Chris Notarile, The company is Blinky Productions, and the brand new film…DARKMAN! Hope you enjoy folks 🙂
