It’s been a minute since WonderCon, but I wanted to write up a blog about it since it was a pretty awesome experience.
This was the second year in a row ‘Help! I’m Alive…’ was at WonderCon.
This year we had a 10×10 booth and were placed in the very center of the convention floor right between CapCom & Game of Thrones. Needless to say we got a lot of traffic, especially due to our booth babes and zombie babes!
The exposure was really impressive as our zombies and promo models appeared on sites such as G4TV, Huffington Post, The Chive, Movie Viral and a few others here and there. I know the REELZ Channel even interviewed our very own Chrysalis Rose!
On top of all that it was 3 days of WonderCon Madness! Cosplay girls, superheroes, Star Wars, props, photo ops and so much more — I wish we could do these every weekend!!
One of the highlights for sure was Felicia Day taking a photo with our zombie dummy mascot, Walter!
I was sitting at the booth and I saw her walking down one of the adjacent aisles and I seized the opportunity to run over and ask her if she’d take a photo with our zombie.
I’m not sure why, but she followed me over to our booth and posed for the photo you see above.
If you don’t know who Felicia Day is, you should Google her. She’s pretty awesome!
We showed 12 different scenes from our pilot episode, which went over great!!
Everyone was asking about the show and when it would be available to watch. While we were wanting to premiere the pilot at WonderCon, we realized after editing everything together that we had shot that we still wanted to shoot a few more scenes to really make it the best episode it could be.
Huge thank you to The Geek Speak Show who came by and conducted a video interview w/ us. Henry and the crew have been huge supporters of the show since last year’s WonderCon and we really appreciate the love.
Check out this interview:
As we prep for our final days of shooting the pilot so we can put it online, we’re also going through the stack of business cards we got from various people who showed an interest in the show and who wanted to be a part of it in some form or another. From actors to promotion to distribution — people really liked ‘Help! I’m Alive…’.
