On stage, on TV, in a film, voicing video game or anime characters, singing, producing … Devon Talbott has done all of those and more. Oh, and he’ll add one thing to that list soon: appearing at LI-CON 2. Say “Hi” to him!
LI-CON welcomes Richard Herr! We’ll be having a contest to find something Richard hasn’t done on Sunday. (No, we won’t. It would be too hard to win.)
LI-CON is proud to announce that we will be screening Losers, a Wizard World (2014) selection. We will also be hosting Writer/Director Carlos del Rosario and some crew members to discuss the film and sign autographs.
Don’t miss the rare opportunity to see this loving tribute to pop culture, and meet some of the creators.
One of the most popular things at LI-CON 1 was our own Katrina and Izaac riffing on SyFy’s Sharknado.
This time around, the team would like your help selecting short subjects to work on. Anything suggested must have a license that lets us modify and use the video, so either Public Domain or compatible Creative Commons licenses. Note that we’re a charitable corporation [501(c)(3)], so commercial licensing is not required.
Katrina suggests looking in the Prelinger Archive (https://archive.org/details/prelinger) as a starting point, but there are lots of other sources of free-license video out there.
Reminder: because they want to offer variety this year, please suggest only short videos, say under 30 minutes. Shorter videos are more likely to be selected.

The upcoming blockbuster The Martian is based on the best-selling movie by our guest, Andy Weir. Here’s a preview:
Everyone enjoyed Paul Levinson‘s time at LI-CON 1. So this year he’s taken it up a couple of notches. Not only is he still the award-winning author and critic: this time around we have a movie make from one of his stories, and Paul will be performing some of his music. Watch the trailer for The Chronology Protection Case:
We’re proud to announce that Brimstone will bring some of his talents to our convention. I’m sure he’ll try to bring them all, but we have only 3 days and he’s an actor, pro wrestler, comic book creator, book publisher, game publisher, sauce and seasoning maker (!) and food show host. We can’t wait to see him.
LI-CON is proud to welcome Nicole Oliva! I can’t do justice to Nicole’s many accomplishments here on the front page, so please click the link to learn about her cosplay, modeling, and award-winning movie! Not to mention her singing!
We are delighted to announce that Andy Weir, author of The Martian (coming to the big screen from Fox in November!) will be making an appearance at LI-CON. Unfortunately he can’t be here in person, but we’re very happy to have him on live video chat. The Martian, Andy’s first published novel, hit #1 on the NY Times best-seller list and is still there after 23 weeks as I write this!
Izaac will be back to lend his technology expertise and help deconstruct some more video. Everyone who enjoyed our team’s take on Sharknado is looking forward to seeing what they’ll riff on this year!
