1444Re: Guests you would like to see in 2009...
- May 16, 2008Now this I like. I like seeing you all so involved!!!! Keep the
suggestions coming and if you have contact info for the guests you are
interested in let us know that as well. (If you don't want to post
that info you can send it directly to me.)
Let me take a minute to talk about media guests...
There are some things we always have to take into consideration when
it comes to media guests:
They are expensive. It is so hard to get the money out of a media
guest that you put into them and of course the more popular they are
the more we have to pay. It is a delicate balancing act business wise.
There are tons of media guests I'd love to see in Pittsburgh that we
just can't afford, however there are a couple of guests I'd like to
see us work on because of their ties to the Burgh:
Zachary "Sylar" Quinto from Heroes is a Greentree Native who graduated
from Central Catholic and Carnegie Melon.
Julie (buffy/angel/dexter) Benz is a Pittsburgh/Murrysville Girl
Author Michael Chabon (The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay) is
another person I'd love to have.
They would be generally out of our price range for Media guests but
maybe we could get a reduced rate since we are bringing them "Home".
So I'm putting it out there to you -The Pittsburgh Comicon Faithful.
If any of you would know of any contact info for either them or their
representation. Let me know.
Keep the suggestions coming. And if you know of other possible guests
with Pittsburgh ties let me know.
Also keep an eye out for Movie Production Schedules. I try to stay in
know about movie productions going on during our Show dates, but if
you see something that is going on that would bring possible guests to
the Burgh. Keep me informed.
I'd like to be able to benefit from all of your knowledge and passion.
