Match Game SF

Match Game: Staff Positions Open

As yourbob has announced he's not going to Westercon and I do not expect Eric Larson to be able to attend, I am in need of two staff positions for the Match Game crew: Production Assistant and Announcer. The Announcer announces the panelists and host at the start of the game and reads the promotional announcements. The Production Assistant gives audience members sign-in cards, collects them as part of the process of selecting audience members to play in the game, and generally assists with keeping the game flowing.

Match Game is tentatively scheduled for Noon Tuesday (last day of the con) in the Pavilion. Reply here or write to me privately if you're interested.
Hugo Trophy

See Lucas Back in Anger at Westercon

While I was very pleased to see the production of Lucas Back in Anger receive a Hugo Award nomination for Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form, one challenge has been that it can't be distributed due to licensing issues on the music. (It has nothing to do with it being a Star Wars parody.) A small number of copies do exist, and I have one of them. If everything comes together, I hope to be able to show it at Westercon, probably right after Match Game on Tuesday (last day of the convention) at 2 PM. This is all subject to Conzilla programming confirmation, of course. (It makes sense to do it this way because we can re-use the tech setup -- we'll use my computer's DVD player and the data projector we'll need anyway.)

The other Hugo-nominated work performed live at Interaction was the Prix Victor Hugo speech that framed the Hugo Awards ceremony. You can download a video of this performance, but I also intend to show it (it's about ten minutes long) prior to showing LBIA.

I'd like to thank Westercon for their cooperation, and I do hope that everyone attending Westercon won't all head home at Noon on the last day of the con.
