Hero-making success!  Nick and the Nicksters enjoyed two days of  science fiction fun and fantasy at the 2017 Fort Collins Comic Con (FC3).  The event raises money for the Poudre libraries through geek inclusivity and fun!  FC3 raised $30,000 for the Poudre Libraries this year alone.  Here are some highlights:

From set up to show, we enjoyed such an awesome community event.

Inspired and technically perfect costumes abounded!IMG_6902sm

Nick’s speech on the Inner Hero caused inner ponderings as the inner heros developed.  Nick’s inner monologue says he is a super-genius.  IMG_6752smIMG_6806sm

The T.A.R.D.I.S. even landed at the Aztlan Center!

 

The table became a crafting zone for hero masks!

Over the past several weeks, the Awesome in Action team has had the honor and pleasure of working with talented professionals- videographer Jaime Peak

 

 

 

and director, Cindy Peak, of the acting troupe Encore! Encore!

 

 

to make Nick’s  idea for his “Nemesis Video” come to life!

and Nick’s niece, Alayna Roussos, a beautiful and compliant young lady!

 

 

 

 

 

Also new to the acting world, Nate Zwisler, from Ripple Effect Martial Arts, has been a fantastic “ninja Nick.” He is very polite, and extremely talented.  A blast to work with throughout the whole film!

 

 

 

We have had so much fun filming with friends and family! Along with the anticipation of a FANTASTIC FILM, we have made many wonderful memories that will always be cherished!

 

 

 

Thank you to all involved in filming the Nemesis Film. We are looking forward to screening it soon! IMGP7201
