Drifter at Wizard World Comic Con St. Louis Recap


The cast & production team of Drifter:  Lonesome Highway (drifterseries.com) had an amazing time in St. Louis where our panel showed the first three episodes of the series at Wizard World  Comic Con followed by a Q&A panel.  We also had a blast walking around in costume meeting everyone throughout the day.   Aside from meeting people, though, we also got to meet a little android by the name of R2-D2 from Star Wars…

R2D2…and checked out the sweet ride from AMC’s “Breaking Bad” with our series award-winning composer and “Regulator”, Michael Brasier.

All in all, it was a good time!

VISIONCON 2014 – The rundown of events:

1.    I FINALLY got to meet David A. Frizell – the talented artist who did our season 1 poster for Drifter: Broken Road! So talented, and such a delightful person. To check out more of his work (it’s awesome!), go to http://www.dafrizell.com/

2.  I went to get a pic with actor Ernie Hudson who has something like a million credits since he’s so fantastic, and as you can in this pic, one of them was playing the role of Winston Zeddmore in the iconic Ghostbusters film. Anyway, I was giving his wife my cell phone and didn’t realize Jason Brasier and Brittney Greer had given him the new DrifterSeries.com webseries shirt which he was wanting to hold up for our photo! He totally didn’t have to do that- he’s just the coolest!


Then… we went to speak on the Drifter: Lonesome Highway panel, which was scheduled right before Ernie Hudson’s panel. :)

Drifter:  Lonesome Highway Panel at Visioncon

We recounted the trials and tribulations of filming season 1, and the onset experiences and what people can expect in season 2. Since it came up in conversation, the other series I’m also in, Bail Out, even got a shoutout.

Then…the two major announcements were made.  See the upcoming 2 posts to find out the news!  :D

Vanessa in Bail Out – Episode 3

I get to lay the smack down with Melodee Lenz and Michelle LeBoeuf in ep. 3 of the SAG-AFTRA webseries Bail Out. Leading off this episode is the star of the show Dennis O’Neill with the chief, Marshall Teague and Roni Hummel (who says my favorite line in this episode!) Edited by the talented Beverly Young. It’s a dramedy, and yes, it’s a family friendly show!
