Canadian National Steampunk Exhibition Video Report!

Me demonstrating that Steampunk is serious business indeed.

 

A couple weekends ago, Toronto hosted the first ever Canadian National Steampunk Exhibition.  It was the brainchild of Adam Smith, who had much help from two very talented ladies:  Liana K and Lee Ann Farruga.

 

I was invited as an author panelist (Plug time!  THE FRIDAY SOCIETY, my YA out in 2012 with Dial is what I call Steampunk Charlie’s Angels without the Charlie), but also took video and did interviews with fellow attendees.

 

The Exhibition went off brilliantly, was very well attended and I am already excited about next year!

 

Here below is my report on the con, my very first attempt to produce and direct a segment like this.  I got some pretty cool interviews with the likes of Meinert Hansen - concept/design artist for such films as the 300, Spiderwick Chronicles, Stranger Than Fiction and Silent Hill; musician Genevieve Young from Psyche Corporation; and the gang from Mental Floss Sideshow, who gives us a lovely exclusive performance.  And of course many others (including some of Professor Elemental‘s fabulous show).

 

Special thanks goes to the remarkable Nadine Bell and MakeGoWork for helping me edit the whole thing together.

 

And  . . . here it is!
