Okay all you folks like me who were rooked out of money by Jumpcon and are a bit gun shy of trying other cons - let me tell you about a real con!

Hi-Clive Young here. Thanks for mentioning that I'm going to be presenting at NEFE. I'll be doing two talks/movie programs on the history of Fan Films--those cool, amateur Star Wars/Batman/etc. flicks you find on the net--and vaguely trying to get the word out about my new book, Homemade Hollywood, which is all about--you guessed it--fan films. For a taste of what my NEFE programs (and the book) will cover, feel free to visit my fan film blog, www.fancinematoday.com.
