Semi-Final Program Grid for Elaine Stiles
This is the Semi-Final program schedule. Elaine Stiles may or may not actually be on these items, but probably will. However, due to circumstances beyond our control, modifications to the program can occur throughout the convention.
|Friday 11:00 pm: I'm Just Borrowing the Characters… Writing Fanfic (Ends at: 11:55 pm)|
Panelists: Janine Spendlove, Elaine Stiles (M), Jean Marie Ward, Steven H. Wilson
Why do people write fanfic? Is it fair use or unfair abuse? How is it different from retellings of Greek myths or King Arthur? Is using familiar characters and settings "training wheels" for beginning authors or a dangerous crutch that will engrain bad habits? Where are the lines?
|Sunday 11:00 am: Soon to Be a Major Motion Picture (Ends at: 11:55 am)|
Panelists: Matt Betts, Annette Klause (M), Elaine Stiles
What movies and TV have stayed true to their source material and which didn't and is that good or bad? Since movies have different strengths than books is a faithful adaptation going to give you a good movie? Is it the idea or the story that makes it work? For instance, the Walking Dead doesn't have everything the comic book did, but is very popular.
|Sunday 2:00 pm: Is SF/Fantasy too Big for TV (Ends at: 2:55 pm)|
Panelists: Eric Choi, Hildy Silverman, Elaine Stiles (M), Christopher Weuve
Science Fiction and Fantasy dominate videogames and top movies, so why so little love on tv? Or is this changing?
