Last year, we had many people who graciously agreed to call in during our event and chat with us and the audience, Though not everyone got to call in, we cannot thank them enough for volunteering their time for this event!
Those people last year are are awesome, but now we look to a new crop of people who have answered the call!
Times in which the guest call-ins will occur will be posted as we receive them.
Call-ins for LPCP II
Call-in Starts on May 6th at 7:00PM
Brittney "Chiki" Fischer is the current North Carolina Manager of the D-20 Girls, a group dedicating to promoting the positive image of women in video games and nerd culture in general.
Members of the group can be seen all over the United States participating in various cons and other events.
From Chiki's website:
Every person is beautiful exactly how they are. The human race is a beautiful mixture of sizes, colors and shapes. I would love nothing more then to wake up one day to a cosplay community built on respect for one another, instead of a jealous and often hateful community. I believe that love for yourself is the best way to create love for everyone. To quote RuPaul: “If you can’t love yourself, how the hell are you going to love anyone else?!”
Stick around to hear us talk about women in gaming, and how to promote a more positive image in these environments!
Call in time: TBA
Graham Stark, together with Paul Sanders, founded the comedy group, LoadingReadyRun in 2003. Since then, the two have picked up a large number of crew members and started numerous series such as Commodore Hustle, Checkpoint,Unskippable, Feed Dump and many others. Currently, you can expect to see LoadingReadyRun put out five videos a week, all of which I encourage you to check out.
The crew at LoadingReadyRun have won numerous awards at the annual Vancouver Island Short Film Festival, including Best Writing, Audience Choice awards, and a Best Make Performance.
Graham Stark, together with the LoadingReadyRun crew and many others, have managed to put together the internet's most successful charity marathon,Desert Bus for Hope. Desert Bus for Hope is a charity marathon that raises money for Child's Play Charity by playing the world's most boring game, Desert Bus,a game in which the player drives a virtual bus in real time from Tuscon, Arizona to Las Vegas, Nevada. The trip is about 7 hours, after which the player scores 1 point and turns around to drive back to Tuscon. There are no stops, and there are no people on your bus. It's just you, the desert, and the bus (which also slowly lists to the left).
The a member of the crew takes a 24-hour shift driving the Desert Bus, while the others complete challenges for donations, hold auctions, and talk to special guests who visit live or call via Skype. Such callers in include Grant Imahara from Mythbusters, Tim Schafer of Double Fine Productions, and Kevin Murphy from Rifftrax (formerly Tom Servo of the show Mystery Science Theater 300).
Call will begin 5:00PM EST on May 6th 2013
Jamie Dillion is the project manager at Child's Play Charity. Jamie has been not only working on Child's Play Charity events such as the Annual Childs Play Charity Dinner and golf tournament, but she also is available to assist those of us who put on events ourselves. I probably wouldn't have gotten all of this worked out without her help. If you are thinking about setting up your own charity event, Jamie is happy to work with you if you happen to have any questions.
Jamie will be our first call in for our event, and she will be talking to us about her experience with Child’s Play Charity, as well as answering any questions you may have about Child’s Play Charity.
Call begins on May 9th at 7:00PM EST
