Video Blog: Word on the Street, Halifax 2010 (Possum Press intro)

Spy Guy and The Possum vs Word on the Street, Halifax 2010 part 1 from Possum Press on Vimeo.

Mike and Blair go to Halifax with their families to attend the Word on the Street Festival, Dave Sim’s last signing, and a Glamourpuss black tie event. In part 1, Dave Sim sings and signs comics for kids! We also get a glimps of Halifax’s night life.

This version is just a little different than the version over at the Ultraist Studios Blog Journal. Since we took our families with us and drove separately, Mike and I each documented our own travels to Halifax, so the first bit is the Possum Press version (be sure to check out Mike’s Ultraist Studios versions too), where as the second bit is ripped from the Ultraist Studios version……. Hope you enjoy.

Video Blog – S.P.A.C.E. 2010 day 2

Here’s part 2 of Mine and Mike’s trip to Columbus, Ohio, where we took part in the 2010 Small Press and Alternative Comics Exposition (S.P.A.C.E.).

Spy Guy and The Possum vs SPACE 2010 Day 2 from Possum Press on Vimeo.

SPACE 2010 continues, as Mike and Blair interview creators such as Shane Houghton, Rafer Roberts, Pat Lewis, Derek Watson, Steve Peters, Max Ink, Tim Corrigan, Matt Feazell, David Branstetter as well as Bob Corby, Margaret Liss and Jeff Tundis.

Be sure to check out the websites of all of the great comic creators that we interviewed. There’s a lot of great stuff there.

Stay tuned for more video blogs of conventions we’ve been attending. (San Diego Comicon and Fan Expo are waiting to be edited and more footage will be shot at this month’s Word on The Street Festival in Halifax, when Mike and I make the trek out east with our familys in tow).

Video Blog – S.P.A.C.E. 2010 day 1

I’ll have some pictures from last weekends Toronto Fan Expo up soon (not to mention a video blog for last month’s San Diego Comicon), but until then, here’s part 1 of our video blog from April’s S.P.A.C.E. convention. 

The Possum and Spy Guy vs S.P.A.C.E. 2010 – Day 1 from Possum Press on Vimeo.

In this video, Mike and Blair travel to Ohio to take part in the Small Press and Alternative Comics Expo (S.P.A.C.E.). This time, they’ve got a pool, a hot tub and an espresso machine! (That’s sellin’ comics in style!) Also on this episode: snippets of The Cerebus Yahoos, reading Cerebus Live, and dinner at the sausage house.

S.P.A.C.E. Day 2 is coming soon.

Also, don’t forget to check out our video blogs from April’s Wondercon 2010 in San Francisco!

The Possum and Spy Guy vs. Wondercon 2010

PART 1

In this episode, Blair meets the Legendary Sergio Aragones and Mike fends off tumbleweed from behind the Possum Press/Ultraist Studios table in Artist Alley, at Wondercon.

Part 2

The exciting conclusion, where business picks up, and stormtroopers read The Possum.

Last March, Mike and I purchased a handy Flip HD Video camera with the intent of filming our exploits at conventions. The first convention we attended since then was Wondercon in San Francisco, which you can view above. Since then, Mike’s been to Mocca in New York, and we were both at SPACE in Ohio. The footage from MOCCA has been edited (which is up on the Ultraist Studios blog and will be up here shortly), and SPACE is being edited as we speak. In July, we’re looking forward to the San Diego Comicon, which should be a lot of fun, and that will be followed by the Toronto Fan Expo in August, and Toronto’s Word on the Street shortly after. Keep an eye out on this blog for videos from those shows too!
