Still recovering from B-Fest (if I go there another 10 years, I’ll be a 60 year old attendee!), but thought I’d toss out some details on this year’s T(ween) Fest.
The date is Saturday, April 27th. As of now, it’s looks like it will be at Sandy’s house again, in Rockwall outside of Dallas.
We did a voting thing last time (my idea, and I inflicted in on Sandy, so it’s all my fault) where attendees of last year’s T-Fest looked over a sheet of over a hundred B-movie elements I assembled and picked the 20 they wanted to see. Votes were tabulated, and the winners were:
Defenestration (6 votes)
Luchadore (6 votes)
Space Babe (6 votes)
Transformation Scene (6 votes)
‘Future’ Date Now Gone By (7 votes)
Horrible Child Actor (7 votes)
Killer Plant (7 votes)
Mad Scientist (7 votes)
Midget/Dwarf (7 votes)
Ninja (7 votes)
Robot (7 votes)
Rubber Suit Monster (7 votes)
Spring-Loaded Cat (7 votes)
Dinosaur (8 votes)
Monster vs. Monster fight (8 votes)
Octopus / Squid (8 votes)
Spider (8 votes)
Technobabble (8 votes)
Explication of Moronic Scheme (9 votes)
Martial Arts (9 votes)
And, of course, since it’s T(ween) Fest, we need to end with a Texas film.
We also had a vote on what actor people wanted to see. Kirk Draut (I should have seen this coming) spammed it by getting his wife and daughter to vote also for the Barbarian Brothers. So they”ll be featured. They made a whopping ONE movie we can play at the Fest (which, of course, they also played at B-Fest this year–that’s how the universe works), and it contained NONE of the list elements, so that made the programming that much harder. I’ve cracked the nut, though, and think we’ll pull it off.
By the way, I probably won’t be making T-Fest this year. We’ll see how things go, but it isn’t promising. For what that’s worth to anyone. If nothing else, Sandy can program the whole thing, and it will make up for the List idea that means he won’t be programming much for T(ween) Fest. He’ll be picking the Friday night pre-Fest movies, though.
See you there!
