Fan Expo 2011
MIND’S EYE TO RULE AT FAN EXPOSummer’s end brings the heroes of sci-fi, horror, comics, and anime to Toronto for the National Fan Expo, an event that’s now thought of as the San Diego Comic Con of the north.
Synn Studios has been a regular presence at Fan Expo the last several years, and at last year’s event, the production team of MIND’S EYE used the occasion to exclusively show the trailer for the premiere season of the series. So what’s coming up for the 2011 Fan Expo? Let’s just say there’s more to see and do than our usual booth in the Rue Morgue section.
To begin with, and for the first time, MIND’S EYE will be hosting a panel at the Expo where fans and newcomers can learn all about the series, its origins, and maybe where it’s going next. Several members of the cast and crew have already been confirmed including creator/producer Thomas Gofton, and actors Nik MacMillan (Illia), Johnny Quinn (The Dolgrath) and Melanie Marie (Khaleigha) as well as AMC The Walking Dead's Chandler Riggs who will be talking about his up and coming role of "Tristan" in the next official season. More guests will be announced as we count down the days to the Expo.
And because Fan Expo is also about gaming, the gang from Team 7 will be on hand to talk about and demonstrate the beta version of the MIND’S EYE game. The game has already been shown off for the public at last month’s Polaris 25 convention, but the Team 7 boys are making improvements and additions to the game all the time. An exclusive at Fan Expo, fans will get another chance to try the game and offer feedback.
As well, you’ll be able to meet and greet with the cast and crew on the convention floor, and buy merch like t-shirts, hoodies, DVDs and CD soundtracks. It’s going to be another exciting year at Fan Expo for the MIND’S EYE gang, so if you’re coming down to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre on August 25th through 28th, be sure to look us up.
Of course, Dreamweaver cosplayers are always welcome!
