What's the status of the Webfest?

Comment by KENNETH E JAMES on October 22, 2014 at 5:34am

Iam very curious to see how this will go. I am very hopeful that this works out for you.

This sounds like a wonderful idea. I've partnered with two prestigious art galleries in NJ to teach high school kids the 'fine' art of comic book creation. I mention this only because for an event like Webfest, getting young creators involved is key. We should control our images in the media, have our race be represented in human tales and science fiction and the future. We'll be there too (contrary to popular media portrayals). Anyway, I wanted those here to know a little about me, what I'm doing and why I'm hoping the Webfest WILL happen. COUNT ME IN!

Remember people, this WebFest will be a celebration. We will be celebrating our own.

Donna, at this point we will be spotlighting people and their work. Panels would be very time consuming and since we are starting small, our time frame will not permit. Maybe as things progress we may be able to add them but right now let's make it through the first.

Donna, I say BE the CHANGE. Get with others in the area and make it happen. Don't be afraid to start small.

I think the webfest could be a launching point for a People of Color convention.  This weekend, I've been at Illogicon (a sci fi convention in Raleigh, NC) and although it's been interesting, it's been disheartening to see how few African Americans and other People of Color are in attendance.  Not only would it be nice to see panels led by African Americans, but I would also like to see cosplayers at an event.  Also, although we could focus some panels on issues dealing with minorities in sci fi and fantasy, just having general events would be fun, like costume contests, parties, vendors, etc.

This entire idea is surely needed. I'm on the West coast & dont yet know how me or my small creative/biz team could help other than maybe see how some of our current sponsors we've worked with over the years could possibly help sponsor the event. That's my 1st impusle. Tho we i have a tight schedule,Once i find out more details about these efforts etc then I can analyze how we can support.....STARR Ray

Is there, just a seeing what possibilities are out there, at this point? Or is there a basic organized setup at this time? What is being looked for from contributors?

Comment by Donna Eason on December 31, 2013 at 1:44pm

I'm developing a sci fi group here in Raleigh, NC, so depending on the date, we might be able to be a hub...

The Fifth Season is coming to TV!

N.K. Jemisin’s ‘The Fifth Season’ Book To Be Developed As TV Series At TNT!

Now Mr. Hayashi can't complain about there being no other famous black creatives than Delany and Butler. 

http://deadline.com/2017/08/nk-jemisin-the-fifth-season-book-developed-tv-series-tnt-1202150542/

Now who says diversity doesn't sell?! If some yesteryear agent says that, throw this article in their face and say "Are you sure? Now get me TNT's president and NO I won't hold!" 

Of course, this assumes TNT won't screw this up like they did the TFTC revival.

SKYCITY TALKRADIO

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
