HAND OF FATE CHANGES D-Day LINEUP
D-Day is an annual Brisbane event that is our chance to build bridges between the creators and the fans, as well as opening pathways for new and aspiring creators to meet and interact with film and TV industry professionals.
Sadly due to unforseen issues, neither Larry Cohen nor Felicia Day will be able to attend D-Day (9/11/12). Felicia will now arrive at Supanova on Saturday and will be with us for the full tour. However, Larry Cohen is no longer able to attend our event and so we bid him farewell from the line-up until a new opportunity presents itself.
The revised schedule for D-Day now includes:
1. B-MOVIE MANIACS: explore the A to Z of B-Movie making with these professionals! [1:15-2:30 PM]
Genre movie expert Dr Mark Ryan in conversation with:
Actress LAURENE LANDON (MANIAC COP)
Entertainer CASSANDRA PETERSON, aka Elvira, Mistress of the Dark
Director / Producer MICHAEL SPIERIG (Daybreakers)
2. LET'S SING... THERE'S ZOMBIES OUTSIDE! Staged reading of a new screenplay seeks feedback and… Brains! [2:45 - 3:45pm]
Let's Sing... There's Zombies Outside! is a zombie musical feature film created by writers Candice Deere and Mark Deere and developed through the Screen Queensland Writers' Room initiative. Actors will read from the script and give D-Day's audience a sneak peek of the new screenplay. Brisbane-based producer Glenn Wilkinson and the creative team invite the audience to get involved in the production by giving feedback on how to make this the best zombie movie possible.
3. WEB SERIES MAVENS: Creating a hit web series [4:00 - 4:15]
Hoodlum's Nick and Lara in conversation with:
Felicia Day's producer on THE FLOG, Brit Weisman
Official Star Trek Continues & Fallout: Nuka Break web series' Vic Mignogna.
D-Day Starts at 1pm on Friday and the Show floor is also open for those folks who want to get a head start on the whole weekend!
