WonderCon 2010, Day 1

WonderCon 2010 has come to San Francisco at the Moscone Center South, and I will be attending the first two days.  Day 1 was pretty fun--getting my feet wet, checking out all the different booths and such.  I went to the "How to Pitch an Animated Cartoon" and the "Nickelodean Animation Studio" events.  Both very informative about the process and what they're looking for in a storyboard artist (someone who can DRAW!).  But, by far the coolest thing [ever] was going to the "Art of The Princess and the Frog" event.  On the panel were John Musker, Ron Clements, Eric Goldberg, Marlon West, and Ian Gooding.   Oh man, was I geeking out!  They basically went over their parts of the movie and told funny stories from the production.  Truly fantastic--oh, to be one of them someday.  As we walked in, we were handed a tarot card with a particular character on the back; I got Mama Odie.  At the end, they announced that everyone with a Mama Odie card (!) should come claim a free prize!  Well, turns out the prize was a free copy of "The Art of The Princess and the Frog" (which I, of course, already own) plus everyone from the panel (except Ron, who had to leave) stayed behind to sign autographs!!!  I know!!!!!  It was a great day.  Here are some pictures from the panel:
