Want to work in a fandom-related industry you’re passionate about, but not sure where to start?

Kristin Burke (costume designer, Sleepy Hollow, Insidious), Zach Lipovsky (director, Dead Rising: Watchtower, Tasmanian Devils), Hal Lublin (voice actor, Thrilling Adventure Hour, Welcome to Night Vale), Lee Joyner (makeup artist & sculpter; director of admissions, Cinema Makeup School), Sarah Marino (animation artist, Book of Life, Nickelodeon Studios' Shimmer & Shine), and Andy Schmidt (founder, Comics Experience; former editor for Marvel & IDW) will share their career-building experiences. Topics include training, online resources, networking, and tactics to use (and avoid) for breaking into your dream industry. Moderated by Wendy Buske (marketing director, Nerd For A Living). This panel will conclude with an audience Q&A.
