Post-Con Withdrawal

Posted on by Ben Posted in Uncategorized | Comments Off

Genericon reminded me that anime conventions are awesome.  It was like being at a giant sleepover.  Everyone was hanging out, watching movies, playing games, discussing the finer points of the Final Fantasy legacy.

The Great Final Fantasy Debate- hosted by Anime World Order

And just like most sleepovers, nearly everyone came dressed up as cartoon characters.

A pair of Gurren Lagann cosplayers who were also fans! So cool.

Matt and I were featured guests at the con.  We hosted a couple panels, one of which being a “how-to” on animation.  I guess Matt and I harbor a lot of deep seated rage towards animation because it spiraled into “the worst motivational speech ever”.  We had to make sure people knew what they were getting into!  Don’t worry, there was a happy ending.

Matt with a 100 Sided Die!

Regardless of any dismal tirades, we had a great time.  Got to meet some fans and hang out with some awesome peoples: Daryl, Clarissa and Gerald from Anime World Order, Alain and Kate from Reverse Thieves, Erin and Noah- the Ninja Consultants, Ed Chavez from Vertical and Walter Amos to name a few.

Big thanks to Evan Minto for hooking us up with this awesome event.  He may in fact be one of the nicest guys ever.  To Dominic Difranzo for being an organizational mastermind who made sure Matt and I were well accommodated whilst away from home.  To all of the staff, especially everyone who gave us rides because we were babies and couldn’t hike through the snow.  To Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute for hosting the entire event. And of course, thanks to everyone who came out to our panels or stopped by our table. You’re all the best.

The time for Genericon is upon us!

For Tax Reasons Goes To Genericon

If you’re lucky enough to be in Troy, New York come by Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute for Genericon!  For Tax Reasons will be hosting two panels:

Friday @ 6:15pm- For Tax Reasons: LIVE AND IN YOUR FACE (DCC 318)

We’ll be screening cartoons, sharing anectodes, answering questions and finally addressing the rumors that Matt and I are, in fact, time traveling robots.  Included as a special bonus: a showing of a never before released Ronin Dojo cartoon!

Saturday @ 12pm- It’s Animation, Stupid! (CII 3051)

Matt and I will share our thoughts on independently producing cartoons, navigating the creative process and showcasing work through film festivals and the web.  Bring your animation queries!  We shall provide the answers. . . or trail off incoherently before changing the subject to early 90s cartoon shows we enjoyed.  Exo-Squad!

Here’s the schedule for more info

We’ll also have a table somewhere.  We’ll be selling some tee’s and goofing around.  So stop on by.
