here at Ponyville Ciderfest wanted to get a little creative with this
week’s guest announcement. First, we thought of having Caramel sing it
in a rock concert – but then we heard Caramel try to sing. Another idea
was during the Opening Ceremonies of an event that features numerous
athletic and academic events – but the entrance fees were far more than
we could afford. Then we thought about Barley taking everyone to a
forest and telling you who it is is around a campfire – but we didn’t
get any cell service.
we decided to go with the tried and true method of just announcing it
here! Ponyville Ciderfest is honored to announce Katrina Hadley as our
next Guest of Honor for 2016! This will be Katrina’s first appearance
at Ponyville Ciderfest, and her only MLP con in 2016! With Equestria
Girls: Legend of Everfree coming out the same month as Ciderfest, we
couldn’t pass up the opportunity to bring in one of the most important
people behind the movie to share their knowledge.
Hadley has been working in the animation industry in Vancouver since
2005, primarily as a storyboard artist. In the past she’s worked on at
least 14 different shows like: Edgar and Ellen, League of Super Evil and
the Monster High DVD movies.
first joined the MLP team as a board artist for Equestria Girls:
Rainbow Rocks, and was lucky enough to be asked to draw the
illustrations for the end title credits. She’s also done storyboard work
for MLP season 5, most notably the premier and 100th episodes. After
storyboard supervising EG: Friendship Games she sassed her way into
being Assistant Director for Equestria Girls: Legend of Everfree.
feels incredibly lucky to work on EG since it feels like a combination
of her 2 greatest loves growing up: My Little Pony and Sailor Moon!
