Our Tampa Video Production Company had the great opportunity to films this year’s Tampa Bay Comic-Con. The 2014 Comic-Con was held at The Tampa Convention Center from August 2nd – 4th. Comic-Con is an event that celebrates comic books, movies, anime, TV shows, and video games. People have the chance to dress up as their favorite characters, attend celebrity panels, meet artists and shop from vendors who offer a variety of collectibles and memorabilia.
Fans were able to take pictures with the Batmobile, Scooby Doo’s Van and the TARDIS from Doctor Who. Our Litewave Media video production team filmed all the action and photographed characters, costumes and more.
Cosplay enthusiasts surrounded the convention. At the end of the day there was a costume contest where people got the opportunity to show their personal creations to an audience and a panel of judges. Our Tampa video company filmed the contest, which had range of costumes: from TV shows like Game of Thrones and Doctor Who, to comic book characters like X-Men and Guardians of the Galaxy, and even hit movies like Lord of the Rings and Star Wars. The contest had incredible costumes and it was a hard choice for the judges to pick the winners, but the cast of the Guardians of the Galaxy won the grand prize.
The convention always brings celebrity guests from popular TV shows and movies. This year, Comic-Con brought two fan-favorites from popular fantasy show Game of Thrones, Richard Madden and Pedro Pascal. Other guests included Caity Lotz who plays the Black Canary on Arrow, Brighton Sharbino and Kyla Kenedy from the popular zombie show The Walking Dead. John Rhys-Davies from the blockbuster movies The Lord of the Rings and Indiana Jones, and Evan Peters from X-Men Days of Future Past also attended.
These actors had their own panels where they took questions from the audience. Our Tampa Video Production Crew was excited to film these panels and hear their behind-the-scenes stories from set.
Celebrity host and Nickelodeon alum Marc Summers made his first Comic-Con appearance ever. He had the opportunity to reprise his popular Nickelodeon game show, Double Dare, with a Comic-Con exclusive called Nerdy Family Double Dare. Families competed to win amazing prizes including visiting a live taping of the popular sit-com The Big Bang Theory and a 4-night cruise vacation. Our corporate video production company enjoyed filming the competition and had fun hanging out with Marc Summers.
After shooting was completed, our Tampa post production company edited the promo video for the Tampa Bay Comic-Con, as well as all of the celebrity panels, and Nerdy Family Double Dare with Marc Summers. The videos will be live on Tampa Bay Comic-con YouTube page, but you can look at the promo video now below.
Comic-Con is a place where people can let out their inner geek and be themselves. It’s an event where fandoms can gather and people have the opportunity to meet actors who bring their favorite characters to life. Our Litewave Media Video Production Team was honored to attend. We had an incredible time at Tampa Bay Comic-Con 2014!
