So here we are again with another summer week passed and with part of the Talenthouse team nerding out at the San Diego Comic Con with the Star Wars, Marvel and D.C. previews, the rest of team spent some time watching an unofficial Star Wars story called Dark Legacy. Take a look at what the team was up to this week.

Film

Dark Legacy by ManifestFilm
Dark Legacy is a short film about an apprentice imprisoned against her will by a Sith Master searching for the student who will surpass him, or die trying. The setting of the story is a barren planet in a forgotten corner of the Star Wars universe. This is where the Sith Master has made his home, and it is littered with ancient artifacts from a tribe long forgotten by civilized society. This unofficial film was directed by Anthony Pietromonaco, with special effects Jaremy Aiello, and Mo Meinhart (Star Trek, The Walking Dead) and fight choreography by Phil Tan and Z Teams (Pirates of the Caribbean, Dragon Ball Z – Light of Hope). I hope you enjoy it!

Event

San Diego Comic Con 2017
This is my sixth year coming to SDCC and I honestly am not tired of it. Every year there is always something new and exciting to see, and this year has been no exception. With a reunion panel of the “Battle Star Galactica” cast, to a live event at Petco Park with the creators of "Rick and Morty," SDCC is definitely the place to be for those 4 days. Walking past a crowd of Storm Troopers or a pack of Yoda's or Chun-Li's is a normal thing at Comic Con and by far, probably the most normal. Comic Con has evolved from just being solely about comics but into a place were thousands of fans can get together and geek out on the same things they like. It's the time were big companies release the biggest news in terms of which movies and actors will come out to theaters in the following years. Comic Con is a place were you can meet not only the actors in the films but the people behind the scenes like the writers, directors, producers, etc… and ask them questions or have general conversations. There is probably no other place were you would have some access to these people at the same time. You never know who you will run into inside the convention center, my personal favorite has been Stan Lee and Matt Groening. Take a look at some of the pictures I've taken of SDCC 2017.
