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.

February 11th-13th, Matt and I will be all up in Troy, New York for GENERICON XXIV!

For Tax Reasons Goes To Genericon

48 straight hours of sci-fi, anime, and gaming (of the video, table and live action varieties).  Of course, like any self-respecting convention, there will be PANELS PANELS PANELS!

We’ll be running two of the previously exclaimed panels.  A how-to animate panel- where we’ll discuss producing independent shorts, the creative process and showcasing work.  As well as a screening and Q&A panel- where we’ll take on all the scathing questions and criticisms the viewing public has been too afraid to voice over the internet.  And as a special surprise† we’ll be screening our never released Ronin Dojo Community College DX cartoon!

Go to for more details.  We’ll be chilling there all weekend, and should have a table up. So if you’re in the NY area, come around and hang out.

†no longer a surprise, specialty withstanding
