LOSERS: Don’t believe the title, it’s a winner!

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.

Help us pick something to riff!

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.

Send your suggestions to riffs@li-con.org.

Thanks!
