Meet Ryan Saunders the “The N00b” here at Flava Entertainment Productions, and follow his nerdy adventures at Salt Lake Comic Con 2016
I left home just over two years ago to serve in the Washington Kennewick Mission. It was a tremendous experience and I learned so much about myself, God, life and a bunch of other things. It really was the best two years of my life. I’ll have to tell you about it sometime. One thing that I admit really sucked was that I flew out of Utah TWO WEEKS before the inaugural Salt Lake Comic Con. Since I was a little boy who decided to make movies, sci-fi and superheroes his life, it had been a dream to attend Comic Con. But to travel to San Diego or anywhere else they house these gatherings was too expensive, so I remained trapped in my obscure town in the Tooele Valley, watching the Cons on the Internet, only imagining the thrill it must be to experience the Fanboy Mardi Gras that is Comic Con. I don’t need to tell you I was ecstatic when it was announced that Comic Con was actually coming to my dark corner of the universe, and deeply disappointed to have missed the first one. Again left to the Internet in e-mails from friends and family to give me just an idea of what it’s like. Apparently, is was a big deal, because it gets bigger every year. And finally, after much long-suffering, I’ll be attending the 3rd Annual and my first ever Salt Lake Comic Con, covering it all!
Along with the obvious stuff such as the displays, cosplays and Chris Evans, I wanna attend as many panels that cover as many different fan bases as I can. While my passions lie with Star Wars, Marvel and DC, Comic Con has a little something for everyone that can be considered geeky. And I intend to see all that I have time for.
Ones that really grab my attention include:
– Convention Survival (for obvious reasons)
– Creating Horror – My Little Brony
– Fan Films That Look Good
– Your Opinion Sucks! (Audience Member and Film Critics Square Off – The Spielberg/Lucas Era And many more.
I’ll also be participating in their World Record attempt for Largest Group of People Dressed as Comic Book Characters, and I’ve bought some some photo ops. There’s just too much to do in too little time. But, this is bound to be the best week of my life, thus far.
See ya’ there!
