Well, about 120 hours from now, I should have landed in Portland for their 2017 Wizard World Comic Con.
Approximately 51 and a half hours later, I’ll be flying out to return to Salt Lake City.
I am currently trying to decide how to maximize my ability to gather photo/video/audio and post updates while I’m there, without dragging a bunch of stuff I don’t need to haul around for such a quick turn-around.
My direct media contact with the celebrities will be curtailed by the rules that make a good portion of them unapproachable during the event (“Not available for press”), but I have requested some time with a couple that haven’t fallen into that category.
No word yet on if those will happen, but that means I need both my cameras (“big” and “small”), plus batteries/chargers. Tiny Tripod (tabletop) is a must.
Large tripod….? No.
Monopole…? Probably not.
I have to take the laptop so I can put up at least one post while I’m there, rather than waiting till I get back (thankfully Monday is a holiday, so I can play catch-up).
I may also try Facebook live from my “work” page while I’m there… damned data, though…
Oh, well; sacrifices must be made, I suppose.
Anyway, unless Wizard World announces some last-minute guests between now and Friday, this will be my last pre-show update on this one.
And then, of course, I can start getting ready for Salt Lake’s FanX in a month, lol.
Then Phoenix in May.
And Denver at the end of June…
Have I mentioned I run a podcast, too, lol?
I need more hours!
Oh, good times!
See you this weekend!
