Got confirmation about program slot,it's 45 minutes. Guess i'll have to start organizing topics. To add a little humour,the first slide in the slideshow has pictures of a real cat and a real F-14 fighter jet.

Just an idea for you to think about. Take a few minutes at the end to talk about why the show got cancelled. Just one heck of a bad call on Uncle Teddy's part. How many people remember back in the day when Hollywood Hulk Hogan called Ted Turner Uncle Teddy? The show was a hit, but Turner pulled the plug due to it being too violent. TboneSwearCait

When you're up on that stage try to look slightly above the groups heads. This way you can avoid locking eyes with one person. Trust me on this! I had to speak before a rather large group and made eye contact with one of the most beautiful women in the world. Which turned me into a rambling idiot. RazHurt

Good luck! RazHoping

I'm convinced the violence was just the justification Turner used, and that the real reason was to funnel the budget into Captain Planet.

Update,I got my program slot confirmed recently and it seems i got the worst possible time. On sunday one and a half hour before the convention closes and the cosplay contest is on at the same time. I guess i'll just have to spread the word about my thing in the convention. presentation status currently is that i'm pretty low on inspiration at the moment. Atleast i've got an idea how i will be telling certain things. (Backstory and characters) with each character i'll do a basic description wich tells who and what they do and add my personal viewpoint of the character being discussed in there. Backstory wise i'll just explain how jake and chance became the swat kats in a way that doesn't take too much time. I have around a month and a few days time to finish this so now it's a good time to start doing this properly. Any kind of ideas or general input is still welcome and appricated.

last update before convention. I've had too many technical issues with video editing. rendering a proper video has failed multiple times. so i have to settle for 1 action sequence and a few clips that the video software managed to render properly. Atleast i've managed to prioritize the topics i wanna talk about and the slideshow is ready to go. I hope this thing will play out okay.

How much time do you have left before your time at the convention?

If you want, you can recycle the presentation audio/visuals I put together for the LIVE Stream. I deliberately set them up to be as general as possible so you could probably talk about a lot of different SWAT Kats things with it.

Here's the video. Feel free to use it.

It's probably a good idea to click the "download" button and have it locally, because internet reliability at conventions is usually terrible.
