Meet the dudes behind the live stream of NYC’s ComicCon! Professor Drew Tyler (left) was my professor my first semester at Weber State, when I took my News Writing class. He’s an engaging professor, who I learned a lot from!
Not only is he an awesome professor at Utah’s most awesome campus (in my opinion), he’s also been providing live coverage of ComicCon all week! ComicCon ended Sunday, and with that, the crew heads home after a long week of working. Check out a “sped-up” version of what one day working at ComicCon entails:
I can hardly believe how many people were there! Not to mention how much work goes into covering the event. Y’all should be proud, Ogden… This town is filled with some seriously talented people. I’ve been keeping up with the live stream all week, & I have to say I’m a little jealous of these guys. They got to interview Guillermo Del Toro (director of one of my FAVORITE films, Pan’s Labrynth), Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance), & of course Claudio Sanchez, lead singer of Coheed & Cambria, whose concept albums go alongside comic books he has made. That’s just a FEW of the highlights of people these guys got to talk to & stream live interviews of.
The boys even had some time for sightseeing, despite the long hours required at the ComicCon event. I can’t believe we have such talented people here in Ogden! It doesn’t surprise me too much, though, considering Ogden is home to many different kinds of people with many different talents.
Drew recently answered MORE of my questions after returning home from their long week in NYC. Read on, Ogdenites!
1. What was your favorite part about NYC’s ComicCon?
2. What was different about NYC’s ComicCon compared to others you’ve been to?
3. What did a typical “day-in-the-life” consist of while you were there?
4. Does your crew have any interesting memories/stories from ComicCon they’d like to share?
5. Probably the most important question: What was the most delicious thing you ate while in NYC? (had to ask, I’m a foodie)
