The Replay – Geek Out Virtual Con 2020

The Geek Insider Podcast has several shows under its banner. We’ve organized them for your convenience and listening pleasure. Thank you for tuning in and subscribing to The Geek Insider Podcast.

Geek Out Virtual Con was a 2-day livestreaming event chock full of special guests and panels for filmmaking, television, comic books, authors, small business and lots of fun.

Season 10

DAY 1

Small Business & Marketing with Dennis H. Lewis, Chuck Fresh

In this panel, we invited Dennis H. Lewis of Green Light Digital marketing and Chuck Fresh from Indie Originals to share best practices and their experience for the most effective marketing.

Too many people, especially independent creators have no idea how to market themselves. We can have the best product, but without a good marketing strategy, it could be the lose treasure – never discovered. Get some wisdom from the pros.

Indie Originals and The Underpresence

Well, we’re hearing it straight from Indie Originals‘ Jake Estrada, Chuck Fresh, and Steve Kurtzke from The Underpresence. Our special guests joined us for an hour of fun, telling tales of paranormal activity during their investigations, digging up old OUIJA boards (CRAZY!!!!), zombies and dancing Santas. SAY WHAT?!

This diverse group has multiple interests in areas of movie making, launching a made-for-TV series, writing, acting, and supporting indie creators of all flavors. As a side note: Zombies don’t discriminate. You’re all delicious.

Indie Comic Creators

The Indie Comic Creators panel is moderated by our amazing guest host, Rob Andersin, the Underground Indie Advocating Devil. Joining him are special guests (in no particular order):

  •  Jonathan Hedrick, creator of FREAKSHOW PRINCESS 
  • Bryan SilverBaX, freelance and cover artist of many variant covers and creator of LOGGERHEAD 
  • Phil Falco, creator of HAUNTING #1 (in Kickstarter 2020)
