NEW GUESTS ANNOUNCED FOR INTERVENTION 2012
Noted Video creators and films to grace Maryland's only "Internet Convention"; Founders mark convention's 3rd year of inspiring digital creators.
ROCKVILLE, MD — July 25, 2012 – An additional round of guests for the third annual event Intervention, Maryland's only "Internet Convention", have been announced – and, in keeping with the convention's focus, all of the guests are creators who have made a name for themselves by sharing their creations on the Internet.
Among the newly announced guests and events are Daniella Pineda, Actress and Online Video creator for CollegeHumor.com, A.J. Rosa, creator of video series My Life With Sega, Cinematic For The People, a live-action bad movie riffing experience, Spacetrawler creator Christopher Baldwin, Cosplay Burlesque, a unique combo of Burlesque and geeky skit comedy, and showings of the hit cult films Dork of the Rings, Harvey Putter and the Ridiculous Premise, Browncoats, Ninjas Vs. Monsters, and more.
These creators – and more still to be announced – will be present at the Hilton Washington DC/Rockville in Rockville, MD, from September 21st through September 23rd, for a weekend celebration of cyber-culture, geek life, and the creative opportunities of the internet. The event's co-founder, Onezumi Hartstein, said, "[co-founder] James Harknell and I wanted to put together an event that would compliment the existing print-centric conventions – we wanted to showcase the creators who use the Internet as their primary publishing method. We felt that web creators needed their own space, We're giving them that with Intervention." After successful runs in 2010 and 2011, this year will mark Hartstein's third time organizing the event.
The convention also features panels, educational content, children's programming, board and video gaming, an extensive Artist Alley, Live Action Roleplaying, musical performances, and plenty of giveaways. As in past years, there will be a charity auction to benefit the Electronic Frontier Foundation, an international non-profit digital advocacy group that helps to defend civil liberties in the digital space.
Tickets for Intervention 2012 can be bought at http://www.interventioncon.com for $40 for the full weekend (through August 31, 2012); and then regular price of $45 afterwards at the door.
