We’ll be running five separate tracks of programming at Monsterama which will include panels, demonstrations, performances, and Q & A sessions. Saturday and Sunday mornings we’ll have programming especially for kids who love making monsters!
This track will encompass panels and talks by our media guests as well as special events like our MONSTER PROM on Saturday night!
LITERARY, ART, & COMICS PROGRAMMING
Our author and artist guests will be talking about their books, scripts, films, comics, articles, and other projects on this track.
This track is for talks and demos of special effects make up, illustration, sculpting, casting and molding, costuming, prop making, crafting, and just about anything else you can do creatively.
In addition, we will be screening films and television episodes all weekend long. Most of our screenings will be on 16 millimeter film rather than digital media. The experience of watching an actual film is so much different than watching a DVD or Blu-Ray, and we are lucky to have a large selection of classic and contemporary films and shows available to screen.
Also, some of our filmmaker guests will be screening their own work and providing introductions or commentary and answering questions afterward. This is a rare opportunity to pick the brains of film directors and artists about their work in person!
Last year we had lifesized Creatures, Godzilla, and Count Orlok, plus tons of great masks and collectibles on display at Monsterama. 2017 will be even bigger and better! More monsters! More displays! More giant art murals and surprises. Bring your camera!
All guests will be happy to sign items, many of them for free. Each guest is different, and some may charge a fee. Most authors will sign books for free, but please ask.
Some of our guests will be available for photo opportunities at the convention. Geek Behind The Lens is our photography partner. Prices and scheduled times will be posted, sign up early so you don’t miss getting a picture with your favorite actor, author, or director. In addition, Geek Behind The Lens will be offering pro cosplay portrait photo opportunities at scheduled times. We’ll also have lots of cosplayers and exhibits all around the con for photo ops with your own camera at no charge!
We’ll have plenty of games of all types – board, computer, arcade, role playing – for everyone to play!
We’ll be providing snacks and drinks throughout the weekend for Monsterama attendees!
