WonderCon 2019 Vlogs

DSC00178.jpg

Vlogs from WonderCon are coming along smoothly. I had to prioritize the interview videos first, so these had to take a backseat a little longer than usual. The process before WonderCon was to do daily vlogs there, but during that weekend I shot them as if it was going to be a single video. Fortunately I shot enough to start & finish each day and not feel like things were shorthanded in terms of content. Sunday/Monday, however, will be combined for the sake of their original final cut durations.

Each vlog is listed below from Thursday to Monday. The payoff, for me, with these vlogs is that I was still about to build each one to be dailies. Toward the end of the trip I was dreading not having enough footage to separate the days. They’re all kind of different in their own way, which is is always my goal for multiple day conventions/events. Hopefully the behind-the-scenes look at the red carpet give a little glimpse into how those things are organized.

A fun personal note to myself is that I used the Sony A6400 for every vlog. I’ve only had the camera for about a month, and can’t stop thinking how useful it is for my workflow. My familiarity with the Sony system gave me an advantage figuring out the camera quicker than usual. For years I’ve been a left hand dominant vlogger, but this A6400 has been a little more convenient for right hand vlogging. This is stuff I should probably touch base on in a near future video. Enjoy for now! :)

Agents of SHIELD at WonderCon 2019

A show that seemed to sit in limbo on a season renewal last year was Agents of SHIELD. It definitely deserved another season, but a little delay from ABC really kept things tense until the good news came around. The cast and producers appeared at WonderCon last weekend for a press event, plus a panel & signing for convention attendees.

I spoke to a handful of season regulars including Clark Gregg, Elizabeth Henstridge, Iain De Caestecker, and Henry Simmons. On the producer chats, I poked mostly at the shortened season length and what type of hurdles that gave the show considering Agents of SHIELD has 20+ episode seasons prior to season 6. Check out the screenshot gallery and interviews video below. Enjoy!

The first press event going into WonderCon weekend was with Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger. Cast and producers were on hand to talk about the upcoming season premiering April 4th on Freeform. Olivia Holt, Aubrey Joseph, Emma Lahana, Joe Pokaski, and Jeph Loeb were a pleasure to chat with. Check out some fun screenshots and my interview compilation video below, plus the bits towards the end are fun to watch. :)
