Comic-Con ’09: Hangin’ with the Film Bloggers

After all the crowds, long lines, outrageous costumes, amazing panels, exclusive footage, tasty schwag, celebrity hobnobbing, and of course, mindblowingly creative comics, the most memorable part of my trip to San Diego’s Comic-Con would– hands-down– still have to be… spending time with my friends from Social Media and the film blog community. These people are the crown jewels of online media, and it’s and honor and a pleasure to know them and hang out with them.

Standing in line for the LOST panel, I ran into Peter Sciretta, Editor-in-chief of SlashFilm with SlashFilmCast hosts David Chen, Devindra Hardawar, & Adam Quigley and Katey Rich from Cinema Blend.

Here’s Dave3 from Geeks of Doom (sitting with Empress Eve, also from GoD), who tells me what his favorite moments of the Con were.

I caught up with Alex Albrecht, Jeff Cannata and Dan Trachtenburg of The Totally Rad Show during the incredibly entertaining LOST panel, and asked them what they’d seen so far that impressed them.

Finally, the guys from SlashFilm, SlashFilmcast, and Geeks of Doom and myself all went to dinner at Red Pearl Kitchen in the Gaslamp for an unusual family-style dinner…at a table in the kitchen! Along the way, we picked up Tom Cheredar and Chris McDavid from Geeks of Doom, Alex Billington, Editor-in-chief of FirstShowing.net, Mike from Great White Snark, and Rob Bricken from Topless Robot. We had a great dinner, and followed it up with PinkBerry and sundaes at Ghirardelli with the TRS boys.

Here’s to the cream of the filmblogging crop! The reason you see such stellar content from them on the web is because behind each and every site, there’s a talented, friendly, enthusiastic individual who just plain loves what they do.

    Great to see you, again, Andy. We've practically made it a regular thing, now. (Of course, by “regular,” I mean once a year at SDCC.)
