|Apocalypse Later - Roadshow||Mail Hal - Site Map|
#33 | #35
2019 marked my sixth year at Wild Wild West Con and I took advantage of the theme (Galactic Steampunk Federation) and the venue (Old Tucson, an old west town built as a Hollywood set) to roll my sets from traditional steampunk animation to science fiction westerns.
As with last year, I brought a couple of films from my full film festival, the Apocalypse Later International Fantastic Film Festival; this year, they were Daisy Belle and Aurora.
Other notable new films to the Roadshow included Widdershins, a Scottish animation featuring the voice talents of one of my favourite actors, Brian Cox; Daug dienų, an award-winning music video from Lithuania; and The Gunfighter, a gloriously inappropriate meta western that got a huge response.
Also new to the Roadshow was No Game Left Behind, a four part webseries shot in Tucson in the style of a silent serial. I interspersed its four episodes in between five very different animations. Saturday saw one more animation before rolling into the Twilight Zone-esque Aurora, which pointed the way to the science fiction westerns of Sunday. The Shot and The Highwayman were also new to the Roadshow and I wrapped everything up with an old favourite that I screened in my very first event, Black Gulch.
Two thirds of the running time was comprised by films that cannot be seen outside the film festival circuit.
