We Leveled Up @ San Diego Comic-Con 2022 (Watch in 55 secs)
San Diego Comic-Con 2022 was OURS! We hosted 2 events, gave out 3 production deals, and joined multiple ICONS on the most prestigious martial arts cinema panel. We’ve captured the epic-ness of last weekend in just 55 seconds for your enjoyment:
Wednesday and Friday’s events–Thor: Love and Thunder Party and the Burton Bash–are thanks to our new partner and king of cosplay parties Bernie Bregman (who we also just found out is a 2x world champion laser tag player?!?!) .
Shout out to Ric Meyers as well for inviting us on stage again this year for Thursday’s Superhero Kung Fu Extravaganza panel. We were beyond honored to join the Shang-Chi and Everything Everywhere All at Once action team The Martial Club, comedian Matthew Page of Master Ken fame, Paper Tigers’ director Bao Tran, YouTube’s That Phat Samurai Guy, and leading film remastering commentator Frank Djeng.
We gave out three $10K production deals in our three days at Comic Con and we can’t wait to start building with the winners. These four folks pitched the strongest original character ideas to get their own origin story episode of Justice For Hire. Here’s a little bit more about them:
Katy Ford aka @freckledhobo - creative cosplayer with 1.5M TikTok followers: https://youtube.com/shorts/xxrhCCJdZm0?feature=share
Nick Main & Patrick Forest - a duo of brothers-in-law with a one-armed hero character that will crush notions of disability in favor of superhuman excellence: https://youtube.com/shorts/A-VAvQWabcQ?feature=share
James “JP” Powell - an insightful creator exploring African ancestral memories to explore history and impact the present: https://youtube.com/shorts/yzo08GhytuM?feature=share
Congrats to our SDCC winners, who in the coming days will begin training with us like action heroes, building their characters and stories like Hollywood franchises, and preparing for collaboration with our entire community. The vision for Reelwurld is to offer these experiences at scale, and we are well on our way.
Head over to our IG to see all the amazing pics from last weekend (the one below is us with Jeff Annison and Paul Scanlan from Legion M!) and be sure to watch Justice For Hire’s SDCC 2022 trailer.
The momentum in our community is STRONG—last weekend is proof. There’s no better time to invest in our mission than right now. Wefunder.com/reelwurld.
