Greetings, folks. Ambush Bug here with another SDCC panel report from our Wide World of Webseries reporter Sjimbrowski who has been hard at work amassing the interviews he took at the con. In the meantime, he’s got a couple more panel reports on all things webby.
SJimbrowski here. Last time we checked in I reported on Bryan Singer’s H+ webseries. Below is the trailer for that series, which premiered at the con.
Now let’s take a look at two other panels I was able to check out at the con.
Joss Whedon Panel
THE GUILD Panel
This year had some AV issues. but unfortunately when they did a recap of the first four seasons with a voice over by the Honeybadger narrator Randell the voice over was out of sync, which prompted Ms. Day to covertly run on stage to stop the playback. The recap was played later along with the first episode with a lower resolution copy--ever resourceful, those Guildies. Alas, no music video this year as Ms. Day was too busy to make it happen; perhaps later this year she’ll have the time. Season 5 takes the intrepid Guild to a gaming convention called MEGAGAME-O-RAMACON. The season will mostly take place at the convention and will have a host of guess stars, including Doug Jones and Erin Grey, plus others just hinted at: Master Chief = Nathan Fillion, perhaps? The first episode of the season is here:
About The Guild: The Guild is an award-winning independent comedy web series about a group of online gamers created by and starring Felicia Day, now with over 100 million views. The show is available for free on Microsoft’s Xbox LIVE, MSN, Zune.net and The Guild website.
