Victory at Gen Con 2011This past weekend, gamers of all stripes gathered in Indianapolis, Indiana for GenCon, the largest convention of its kind in North America. So what was the crew of MIND’S EYE doing there? Why picking up some hardware, of course.
The final four episodes of MIND’S EYE’s initial season were screened as part of the con’s film festival, along with several other submitted webseries, short films and features. At an awards ceremony on Sunday, the winners for each category were announced and MIND’S EYE came out the winner for Best Series. The prizes, as awarded by Troma Entertainment co-founder Lloyd Kaufman, included a trophy, a free exhibit booth at next year’s GenCon and a copy of Kaufman’s DVD Box Set Make Your Own Damn Movie!: Secrets of a Renegade Director.
But it wasn’t all awards at the show. The MIND’S EYE crew was working hard at the booth creating Instant FX, a unique service where fans could get a picture or video of themselves with a visual effect of their request. As well, MIND’S EYE producer/creator Thomas M. Gofton participated in a number of panels and the DREAMWEAVER role playing was play-tested once again for the attending gamers.
All-in-all, it was a solid weekend of fun and accomplishment for the MIND’S EYE team. Coming up next: a stop this weekend in “The Windy City” – Chicago – for the local Wizard World con. Then, we’ll be returning home for the National Fan Expo in Toronto at the end of the month. Keep your eyes peeled; MIND’S EYE may be coming soon to somewhere near you.
