Things happen fast! Watch out, north Florida/south Georgia:
Just in the last two weeks I've gotten freed up to visit the next Star Trek Continues shoot, so while in the area why *not* bring the "Dr. Trek Show" to Jacksonville, finally, for THE CON OF WRATH as well? 7 pm this SATURDAY, March 8!
It will be our typical laid-back two-hours-plus from the convention circuit, just switched up a bit for a stand-alone format here. Yes, the night is still all about supporting and sharing my documentary project in progress, The Con of Wrath—seen now as the most infamous event in pop culture media fandom, the meltdown-to-miracle of the "Ultimate Fantasy" in Houston, 1982, Star Trek’s first big all-cast arena “rock show.”
And yes, the night is broadly all for Trek fans, indie fans, documentary fans...pop culture buffs of all stripes …
But this night, we are thankful to the Florida State College-JAX campus for hosting our venue… and in deference, the event is free and open to the public for the rare Trek clips, the sneak peeks from the doc so far, and the Q&A tales you can pry out of me. For this occasion, I'll also have a story or two from the new STAR TREK: STELLAR CARTOGRAPHY maps/book set for the Trekademics on hand.
But, as with our usual format, those who also take our live "crowd funding" opportunity of a $20 donation not only get their screen credit, but also a shot at batches of trivia for prizes! And maybe a couple other surprises as well.
I'll also have a small sales table with a few copies of STSC, "Trekland: On Speaker" CDs, and some older items as well.
Find us at 7 p.m. at the FSCJ campus downtown at 3939 Roosevelt Ave, Jacksonville 32202 ... ROOM E104. Please "Join" the Facebook Event page, if you can!
Help me preserve Trek history in return for a screen credit—and have a bonus blast doing it! After a 2013 given over to so many new projects that the doc took a back seat, we are now ramping up "The Con of Wrath" again to get on with the rest of filming and editing.
Please spread word to your fellow fans in the area on Twitter, Facebook, and all that.
