  1. Basically it's too far out to have announce able plans as there's too many variables - either it'll be fine to go ahead relatively normally without extra precautions, extra precautions need to be taken (But that can mean many things - social distancing, masks on except in the shoots, lowered attendance figures) or it won't go ahead. Many events are postponing until next year still because of similar situations and there's just too much to plan for, but many event are still planning to go ahead.

    I know it's hard and stressful but when they have a picture of what the situation is nearer the time they will update everyone with what the event will look like I'm sure.

    Hi Posey, they won't comment unless they have anything official to say I'm afraid, and if and when they do, they will post it as soon as they can.

    Just trying to book a photo op with Aaron but this isn't listed on the tickets page. Does that mean all photo ops with him have sold out? :(

    It's been a while so I might be wrong but I think if a shoot is sold out, it stay on the shop but just shows as sold out.  If they aren't on there at all I'd say they haven't been added yet.

    This is a special exception, as Aaron still hasn't been reconfirmed as attending. Other guests such as Alice Cooper are in a similar position, nothings in the store for them as they're not reconfirmed yet. So I'm afraid you'll just have to wait until SM confirm he's attending before photos go on sale for him.

    And this is where it gets tricky - they have said in reply to people on facebook a couple of times that, paraphrasing here 'the guests are on the website'.  To me that sounds like they are saying anyone showing on the site has reconfirmed.  But it'd be nice, and easy for them to do, to post it separately so everyone knows, or even clear the website and reannounce people which confirms it and gives them additional promotion of them.

    It is further confused though by the fact that people like Aaron and Alice aren't in the shop, which does suggest they haven't reconfirmed despite what they say, otherwise they would be in there.

    Rhea Seehorn (Better Call Saul)

    Jonathan Banks (Breaking Bad)

    Claire Danes (Terminator 3, Homeland)

    Damien Lewis (Homeland)

    Kirsten Dunst (Spiderman)

    I second Claire, especially if she can bring her husband :D

  5. I'm not sure what you mean by cashed in, but yes, tickets for postponed events are still valid.  If a guest you have a shoot booked with can't reattend, I'd presume they will handle it the usual way with a guest that cancels and refund those tickets, but they haven't actually said.  There's no reason though to think that cancelled guests will be handled any differently than normal.

    Has Meat been reconfirmed for summer? I'm getting confused :lol:

    In yesterday's announcement post about today's announcement on Facebook they did reply to someone along the lines that the guests were on the website, so I take that as confirmation that everyone listed on the front and guest page has been reconfirmed.  But it would be nice if they said it clearly.

    I see that it’s now possible to buy/pre-order autographs from guests on the website (as in autographs at the event, not sendin preorders or those included with passes) - will there be an announcement soon about how this is going to work in practice?
     

    Are these autos going to be somehow guaranteed or work similar to VQ, will this be the only way to buy autos or will They be Available at the event aswell? How Will the priority work?

    Although they have a “Buy Now” button on the website, when you go through to Eventbrite, there aren’t actually any autos available to buy, just photos and diamond passes (and entry and talks). As it’s a new website my guess (and it is just my guess) is that they still have a few things to iron out and that button shouldn’t be there on the auto section. 

    I agree with Wrong.  It's always possible they might one day try it again but as it's a function that's only on a few and not most of the guest pages and as it takes you to an area that requires a password, I'm guessing it's an error.

    I'm sure this question has been asked before but will tickets that were purchased for the events previously planned in 2020 (entry, diamond passes, autographs, photos etc) still be valid for the 2021 event if it does indeed go ahead?

    Yes.  I'm not sure how it will work with Eventbrite, but with other con companies ticket sites, they auto updated when they opened their shops again.

  9. Pet Sematary (2019): It wasn't as bad as I feared it would be.  There's a few changes from the book but for the most part the story is the same.  It's nothing special really but was an OK watch.

  10. The Boys.  This is a really good series, it's bizarre, childish, funny, crude and at times strange.  I've loved it though.  The chap who plays Homelander is brilliant, he can really do a good power mad psychopath and he was often really chilling to watch.  The whole cast is superb.

    And I love the whole thing with The Deep and the fate of all his sea helpers.  It's tragic and down right hilarious.

    I recently heard about the new Film and Sci/Fi Museum opening later this year in Milton Keynes.

    Is it run by Showmasters staff or connected to Showmasters? I heard this was the case, or is that mis-information?

    Cheers for any help.

    I don't know how much it crosses into Showmasters territory but it's Jason's project so it's all legit

    With news that the show is now going ahead in July I just dont see how...

    1) 150k people will be allowed on public transport over the course of a long weekend to attend the show. 

    2) guests from outside of the UK will be able or want to attend due whether that be for their own precautions or having to self isolate within a hotel for a period before/after the event. 

    3) Vaccine roll outs will likely to be entering the final stage but for many only the first dose. 

    I have desperately missed shows from both a social and income stand point and cannot wait for 'normality' to return but now people are going to be rushing for accommodation and travel arrangements based on the decision with a realistic chance the event will again be postponed or not on the scale it is currently advised for capacity, guests etc. 

     

     

     

     

    1) Public transport has been in operation all through out the pandemic, they reduced the train service but there's photo's from the height of the pandemic with those who still had to go to work all rammed into carriages, so I don't think that will be affected or a consideration really. 

    2) That is definitely a big concern - if they have to isolate for 2 weeks that probably makes it financially non viable.  Though there is a high chance they won't have to if they have had the vaccination, but that probably makes it hard to find guests who have had it, that are free to come over, want to do the show and are affordable.  Also, many attendees are based overseas and I know many are hesitant to buy tickets as they don't know if they will be allowed to travel either and don't want to buy if they then can't come over and not get their money back.

    3) I agree, thought the first dose does give good coverage it is a concern.

    I know it's very easy for me to say this as I'm not familiar with the intricacies of running a con and what the concerns are behind the scenes, but it does seem like it would be more sensible for the larger events to hold off for a bit.

    It's a major undertaking - we're not talking about a little spring clean. Also, I had a disaster yesterday. 

    Was it an epic disaster?  You didn't accidentally stab yourself with your wood did you?

    Ta all. Any idea when do they usually upload the rest of the guests please? Again aware it's not usual circumstances but hate to miss it..

    Usually pre orders get added around the time of announcement but there's no official timeframe so it's whenever really.  Best thing to do is to check once in a while, or when they start making official announcements again.  Most guests you won't have to worry about as pre order's rarely sell out, the only time I'd say you might want to order quickly is if they announced a massive A lister who would get a lot of people buying.  Then they would probably cap it and you'd want to order sooner rather than later.

    Disgusting objectification.

    Although I guess I know what I have to do next time SM have the Wings photoshoot available. 

    That would be really funny and you are committed to doing it now.  May I recommend the arseless trousers for a modicum of decency?
