In the next month I’ll be visiting a bunch of cities to do Q&As after the screenings of Ghosts With Shit Jobs. If you know folks in these cities, it would be great if you spread the word!
Note that the Austin one will only happen if 30 tickets are reserved in the next 4 days as we’re using Tugg to gauge interest. (UPDATE: Austin is Go!) We can do it in other towns in the US too, so if you’re interested in bringing GHOSTS to your town in November, just fill out this form and we can start to try and make it happen! If you’re not in the US, just email us directly.
Heading to Poland next week for Transatlantyk Poznan International Film and Music Festival. They’re screening GHOSTS and I’m doing a Lo-fi Sci-fi *cough* master class after the Friday screening.
Hey, I’m taking part in this youth initiative that looks pretty good! More deets here.
BFI Future Film and SCI-FI-LONDON Present… Micro Budget Sci- Fi Filmmaking – May 5th, 12:45
Join us for a Q+A with Directors Jim Munroe (Ghosts with Sh*t Jobs), G B Hajim (Strange Love) and Sloan U’Ren (Dimensions) as we discuss the future of sci-fi on film, and making sci-fi movies on a micro budget. Our panel will also be giving feedback on sci-fi shorts made by young filmmakers that will be screened as part of this event.
I’m going to be doing a talk and workshop in Holland next week on DIY promotion and videogame making. Should be fun!
The amazing TCAF is happening May 8-9th. Reasons to go, organized via flavours of nerds:
Comix nerds: It’s got an amazing array of international talent and all the local lights as well.
Book nerds: It’s at the newly renovated Toronto Reference Library, with new rooms and facilities to wonder at.
Game nerds: The Torontron will be there alongside the Hand Eye Society table.
No Media Kings nerds: Shannon and I will be there selling & signing Sword and chatting on panels
Cheap nerds: It’s free.
I’ll be doing a few panels at Ad Astra this Saturday April 10th:
Due to a confluence of many factors (Boston is the ancestral home of Zork and MIT, an active IF community in the area, and the launch of the IF documentary GET LAMP) PAX East is looking to be the largest gathering of interactive fiction authors ever.
I’m super-flattered to have been asked to talk at the world’s most respected games conference.
I’ll be tabling at the excellent zine fair Expozine this weekend
Me and Shannon will be at TCAF to debut the first issue of our Sword of My Mouth, the follow-up to my and Salgood’s Therefore Repent! graphic novel (which had an awesome debut at the last TCAF). It’s already gotten a couple nice reviews (here and here at minute 42 or so) so I’m looking forward to seeing what people think in person! Plus, Shannon will have some of the art from the book available for the event as silkscreened prints, and believe me, she knows a thing or two about silkscreening (google it if you doubt me). Need more incentive? TCAF is one of the best comic fests in the world, it’s free and it’s at a huge downtown library this year. Check it out!
