It’s been talked about for months, and now it begins.
Juliet Landau has officially started the Indiegogo campaign for her documentary A Place Among The Undead this morning. The documentary takes a look at vampires in popular culture, from Dracula to Buffy the Vampire Slayer and beyond. A Place Among The Undead is a “first of its kind” in many ways. It gathers the Who’s Who of the genre, never seen before together in one film. It provides a rare perspective… an insiders’ view into the vampire phenomenon.
The list of people interviewed is very impressive; from Gary Oldman (Dracula), Tim Burton (Dark Shadows, Ed Wood), Willem Dafoe (Shadow of the Vampire), Anne Rice (Interview With the Vampire) and Caroline Munro (Dracula 1972 AD) to David Greenwalt (Angel), Charlaine Harris (True Blood) and Joss Whedon.

Thank you to everyone who attended An Evening at Caritas on Saturday August 9, 2014! It was a small intimate event, and fun was had by all as we raised money for Kids Need to Read in honor of Andy!

On Sunday, July 27th in Room 6BCF, 3:30-5pm Fandom Charities™/Whedonopolis™ will be presenting our interactive screening of “Once More With Feeling” as the closing event of the con for the 8th consecutive year!
So mark it in red ink on your homemade SDCC schedules. (You all make those, too, right?)
If you enjoy getting your ya-yas out in a room packed with Buffistas and Scoobies, who put on their own light show with cellphones and light sabers, then this is definitely the event for you! And if you’ve never had the pleasure of such a thing, this is your opportunity.
Plus, you never know who may stop by! Such as Nicholas Brendan (Xander Harris), at this past screening!
