After having a wonderful time, making new friends, and exploring Seattle last October, I decided to once again make the trek back this year for the second Geek Girl Con. I wasn’t the only one returning to GGC, the delightful ladies of Bioware joined me as well. This year there were two panels, the first of which was a presentation on the life cycle of a level. Moderated by Jessica Merizan, panelists included, Mary Kirby (writer), Raylene Deck (level designer), Sarah Hayward (cinematic designer), Karin Weekes (senior editor), and Melanie Fleming (localization producer).
With Comic-Con 2012 lurking on the horizon, we’re still in the process of figuring out where we’re going to be and exactly what panels and events we’re going to cover. This year is going to be pure grade-A madness. It turns out Katrina “Action Chick” Hill, who is known for her kick-ass SDCC panels, will once again be bringing the fire to this year’s SDCC. Katrina’s panel this year will feature tons of creative ladies from the industry, including some of the fine folks we’ve featured here at NA: Abbie Heppe, Milynn Sarley, and Holly Conrad. Heck, it was an inspirational pep-talk from Abbie that pushed us to start this very site… true story. Nerd Appropriate will be there for sure! Will you?
