Default Sokar's Dragon*Con 2008 photos

I figured this would be a good place to start posting my D*C photos.

Though this could take a while, since I took around 530 photos, some I won't post because they are repeats.

Susan and myself



Miram



Charlotte/Cavatica



Todd McCaffrey and myself



SongBreeze and Myself



BM and LL



The Rowan



That's enough for now.

Thanks for sharing these Sokar! I miss DragonCon, and hope to get back some year soon!

(I did move the topic out of the new PhotoConCrit forum, as it's not official open for posting yet.)

Good news and bad.

The Good is that I've now uploaded all the photos that I took at D*C to my photobucket account.

I've broken them down into three sections.

Around Dragon*Con

Dragon*Con Parade

WeyrFest

The bad news is that it's going to be another week before I can really start work on capturing the video.

In the Around Dragon*con, there's a few Japanese geishas, Star Wars characters, anime characters with ?. Does that help jog your memory as to what they are, Sokar? I'm trying to think what they are, myself. And there's a white car with #5 on it, isn't that from the Speed-racer movie?

I don't watch much anime, so any help with those would be useful, and I've no idea about the car since I didn't watch the movie.

True... though I could have done without jet lag... on the Saturday morning after hte parade, it was probably a combination of the heat and jet lag, I almost crashed out in the dealers room, I managed to get to a chair before I did. thankfully the people at hte table where I sat down could see I was worn out...

Just a small, minor bit of news... my studio where I do all my video work, is sort of back up and running, and I've started the process of capturing the video off the tapes I filmed while at D*C.

So give me few days, and I might have some stuff to post.

I was going to

The good news is that, as I type this, the video is now captured, and doesn't need much work doing it. I just need to decide on how to do the tittle/credits.

I've got a choice of program to use.. some cheap..iMovie, or FCS2, or the burden of choice.
