My Salt Lake Comic Con Schedule

Hot on the heels of Dragon Con last week, I'll be at Salt Lake Comic Con this week.

Both conventions have kept me very busy, and I'm looking forward to Salt Lake. I'll be sharing a booth with the rest of the guys from Big Shiny Robot! and some other great artists. I'll have plenty of books and will be signing them, including The Serpent's Head.

For those interested, here's my panel schedule:

Thursday

  • 4:00 pm - An Hour With Sam Witwer
  • 5:00 pm - Room 250a - What we know and what we think we know about Episode VII (Moderator)
  • 7:00 pm - Room 255c - Salt Lake Comic-Con Film School Part 1: Development, Screenwriting, and Pre-production
  • 8:00 pm - Room 255b - The Big Shiny Geek Show Pub Quiz
Friday
  • 1:00 pm - Room 250a - Star Wars Rebels (Moderator)
  • 2:00 pm - Room 151g - The Future and Legends of Star Wars Canon (Moderator)
  • 8:00 pm - Room 255f - The Cinema Behind Star Wars (Moderator)

Saturday
  • 2:00 pm - Room 255b - Nerds vs. The News
  • 3:00 pm - Room 255c - Salt Lake Comic Con Film School Part 3: Post-Production, Marketing, and Distribution
  • 4:00 pm - Room 255c - How to Create and Run a Successful Kickstarter Campaign
  • 5:00 pm - Room 251a - Star Wars Roundtable: An in-depth discussion of Film, Comics, Television, Novels, Toys and more (Moderator)
  • 6:00 pm - Room 151d - Full of Sith podcast recording
  • 8:00 pm - Room 255e - The Princess Bride, John Carter, and other movie marketing failures (Moderator)
This is all still subject to change. I've heard tell they want to add some things to the schedule, but we'll see. In the meantime, I'd say your best bet to get a book signed will be on Friday, which is my lightest panel day.

I also promise I'll be updating this space more often. I've just been writing. A lot.

The Symbiotic Relationship Between Art and Politics

Art is inherently political.

Let's just get that out of the way. We all have things we want to say (or things we want to not say) in our personal lives that shape the art we make. And artists, more often than not, are trying to say something with their art, even if their goal is to not say something.

There is no doubt that this has been a turbulent week in the country I live in. There are many of us that are confused and shocked and afraid of what might be to come in the future. That's understandable. As artists and writers, I feel like we're typically more empathetic than the general population. It's easy to think about what it's like to be in someone else's shoes because we spend so much of our creative time almost literally in someone else's shoes. And we need to pass that understanding on to our readers or viewers or however else they're consuming this art.

I've seen this troubling idea, though, that art needs to be purely for escape and that p…

Anatomy of a Scene - City Lights

We're going to break down another scene this week, and it's one of my favorites in cinema history. It comes from the ending of City Lights by Charlie Chaplin, which I think is the greatest romantic comedy ever made. 
It's a touching film from 1931 and I would make it mandatory viewing for anyone who wants to learn to tell a story.
The scene we're going to be breaking down comes from the very end of the film, so if you haven't seen it, I don't want to spoil it for you. Go watch the film. You can rent it for $3.99 in HD on Amazon or for free on Hulu with a free trial or plus subscription. You should just buy the Blu-ray, though. You're going to want to revisit it.
For those of you familiar with the movie, or for those of you who are going to ignore my pleas to watch it and go ahead with this post anyway, I'm going to set this clip up a bit before you watch it.
City Lights tells the story of Chaplin's Tramp and how he falls in love with a blind flower …
