Hall of Records (from years gone by) > Saturday

Hidden Jem's...the Undiscovered Diamonds in The Rough

(1/2) > >>

This is a topic I have brought up for the past couple of years. It's a place to post any smaller panels, autograph signings, events, etc. that may not be as glamorous as the big panels/events, but are worth checking out. Maybe a special guest that would be cool to see in a more intimate atmosphere-stuff like that.

I have one so far (will be more once I look at the whole schedule) from the Announced Panels thread:

The Psychology of Star Trek vs. Star Wars with Rod Roddenberry & Sam Witwer & Dr. Andrea Letamendi
(will add the date/time when I know it)

I adore Sam Witwer (plus-he is an awesome panelist), so I may have to check this one out.

I didn't come up with this idea on my own-one of the podcasts does a similar topic each year (I can't remember which one), and I thought it would make a great topic.

ETA: It's at night, so I can't make it. Figures!
Saturday July 26, 2014 8:30pm - 9:30pm
Room 26AB

I changed the title to align with the other days.

Oops-looks like we are doing this under each day. I guess this one should be locked, or moved under Saturday (that's when the panel above will be)

Not sure it's so 'hidden', but this will likely be packed.

Robert Kirkman Presents Skybound Entertainment Featuring Norman Reedus
Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead) and his producing partner David Alpert (The Walking Dead) discuss Skybound's journey into television and film beyondThe Walking Dead series. The panel will feature an exclusive, never-before-seen teaser of Skybound's first feature film, AIR starring Norman Reedus (The Walking Dead), a co-production with Automatik Entertainment (Insidious franchise) that has been acquired by Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions. Reedus will join the panel to discuss the making of AIR and what it was like to work with Kirkman and Alpert outside of The Walking Dead. Director Christian Cantamessa (Red Dead Redemption) will also be present. Skybound's newest division, Skybound Interactive, will also share their upcoming slate of games including news about the critically acclaimed game The Walking Dead by Telltale.
Saturday July 26, 2014 3:00pm - 4:00pm
Room 6A

There's two that I wish I could get to (but will likely be in Hall H instead..)

Pop Culture and the Robot Reality - Room7AB 11:00am-12:00pm
"From "Marvex the super robot" to the Metal Men to the Sentinels, robots have been a prevalent theme in comic books and science fiction. Historically, robots and androids have been depicted as both loyal servants (Rosie the Robot) and/or metallic menaces (Ultron). In this session, moderator Steve Broback (Tweet House, Parnassus Group) joins Brian David Johnson (resident futurist at Intel), Jennifer Barry (Rethink Robotics), and Jason Crusan (director, Advanced Exploration Systems Division at NASA), to survey and demonstrate our coming robot reality, what the next few years hold in store, and how it reflects on the futures depicted by the pop culture robots and androids of our time."

Sci-Fi, Robots, and AI, Oh My! - Room7AB 12:00pm-1:00pm
"Every day, our present begins to look more and more like science fiction. We converse with AIs on our phones, communicate by digital avatars, and maintain entire social presences online. Movies like Her demonstrate how familiar-and how close-we are to a world where Cylons co-mingle with humanity. Authors Daniel H. Wilson (Robogenesis), Andy Weir (The Martian), Jason Hough (The Dire Earth Cycle), Daniel Price (The Flight of the Silvers), M. D. Waters (Prototype), and Nick Cole (Soda Pop Soldier) discuss potential robot uprisings with moderator Maryelizabeth Hart of Mysterious Galaxy!"

You know, just nerdy robot stuff  :D
