• Galacon - Panel Details, Gala Party, and More

    Galacon has a swarm of new updates up for anyone attending their event this year. Head on down below the break for all of them!

    “PixelShy: Flash Games and Animations” and a Premiere
    We are very happy to announce that Flash Animator Draco Blair will be coming to GalaCon 2016 to present his Project “PixelShy” – a game he has been working on for many years, also involving a great number of voice artists.
    So his project is kind of a big deal – a big deal that is yet only known from little teasers and examples, but shall finally come to public sight at our convention.
    During his Panel, he will of course mainly talk about Flash Animation and coding in AS3 and give a short overwiev over his art.
    Additionaly, he will be giving you a 8 minutes premiere sequence of his game – only at GalaCon and never seen before!

    “Yasi’s Plushie Panel”
    Our little cuddly, soft plush ponies have always been our best friends and some of us would give their whole rent and wait for months just for one portrayal of their original character or favourite pony.
    This noble art of plushie crafting is only understood and acted out by the few chosen ones who share the gift of having magic hooves, one may think by walking through the rows of beautiful plushies smiling from the stalls at the GalaCon vendor area – wrong! Anyone can do it with a little skill and practice. And German plushie maker Yasi will show you how.
    No matter if you want to become a plushie artist yourself, just make a plushie using a given pattern for you and a few friends or even just want to get a glance at how your little plush friends come to live, you are welcome at her plushie panel. Yasi will show you the process of developing a pattern, choosing the materials, sewing the plushie and finishing the overall artwork, also showing you some tricks and how to avoid common mistakes.

    Curtain Up for GalaCon Game Show Summer!
    When planning our convention program and the set of panels and shows, we always try to look for something new, something exciting to please our visitors needs. We learn from your feedback and are always happy to see a novelty panel rise from a plain item to a big part of our convention.
    One of this start-ups was Pony Jeopardy, the first game show at GalaCon that immediately caught on with the audience and became one of the most popular panels at last year’s convention.
    Because Pony Jeopardy was such a great success, we will not only repeat the show in an improved and advanced shape – there will additionally be a Pony version of the well-known Family Feud to make your GalaCon experience even more exciting!
    Therefore “curtain up” for the GalaCon Game Show Summer where you can not only watch and ask our guests and panelists, but also become an actual part of the show and put your knowledge about the show and fandom on the test.
    So don´t miss our game shows taking place on both Saturday and Sunday in overall four rounds. There will even be a little – but still very exciting – surprise at the end, so don´t leave to early.

    “Dramatic Reading and Voice Acting” by VisualPony
    In his panel, VisualPony gives you an insight into the art of dramatic reading and voice acting, pointing out the important parts and tricks.
    He will also show you how to record your stories for publication and how to choose and use the right software.
    This panel is not only recommended for those who are already voice acting, but also for fanfiction writers who are interested to present their art to a greater audience or for anyone who would like to participate in an animation or game project as a voice actor.

    And the announcements of our DJs for 23.05:
