Cinevore Studios is a Philadelphia-area production company that produces original scripted projects with a slant towards gamer and nerdy genres. They’re best known for their work with Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie, as well as the revived Mystery Science Theater 3000 Turkey Day Marathons. They produce Moot, a series about what goes on behind closed doors in the teacher’s lounge for WHYY-TV, as well as Nerd vs. Geek, a series about the problems that arise when three awkward social circles – a MENSA chapter, a gamer group, and drama club – becoming Craigslist roommates.

Their retro content includes Living in 8 Bits, a web series about retro video game tropes, OverAnalyzers, a NSFW series about a team of quack scientists that analyze pop culture tropes such as how Batman’s pole works, and retro gamer-genre shorts for The Continuum, Firefall’s gamer-genre network. And if you like things REALLY retro, they also work on Victorian Cut-out Theater, an animated series that uses old Victorian illustrations to tell wild stories about eccentric billionaires, automatons, and The Bride of Frankenstein.

 

 The Cinevore gang will be hosting a panel at the show on Saturday called…

“Children of the ‘80s”

 

Presented by Stephanie Yuhas, Matt Conant. Michael Licisyn & Sarah Braun

In their own words…

“The movies, shows, games, and toys we surround ourselves with as children can directly shape our personal, social and professional decisions made throughout our lives.

Our panelists’ love of pop culture lead them from being fans to  filmmakers that produce projects involving the Philadelphia Phillies, Nintendo, LEGO, Dungeons & Dragons, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Star Wars, Back to the Future, and Mystery Science Theater 3000 Turkey Day (but not all at the same time. Boy, that would be bananas).

Learn why we take pride in our nerdy hobbies, how we’ve shaped them into careers and lifestyles, and how to do the same with your own passions. Join the conversation!”

Signing at the Cinevore booth will follow immediately after panel.

About the Panelists…

Stephanie Yuhas learned English from Bugs Bunny cartoons, and her interest in video games, Dracula, and Barbies led to the publication of her first book, American Goulash.

Matt Conant’s experiences designing worlds in games like Civilization and Dungeons & Dragons helped him become a successful entrepreneur and filmmaker at Cinevore Studios.

Michael Licisyn’s childhood love of both retro gaming and baseball has shaped his career to this day as the creator of Living in 8-Bits and editor at the Philadelphia Phillies.

Sarah Braun’s early years playing role-playing games developed her skills and personality as an award-winning actress.

 

We look forward to seeing what Cinevore brings to the show and we thank them immensely for coming back for another year!
