Here's my schedule for Boskone 57, February 14-16 2020, at the Boston Westin Waterfront:
Remembering the Star Trek Aliens
Friday 17:00 - 17:50, Harbor II
Vulcans, Klingons, and Romulans all have their fans. Let’s look beyond these familiarly fantastic faces to other memorable aliens (and cultures) within the Star Trek macroverse, and discuss why they’re so special. Or not so much.
M. C. DeMarco (M), Kenneth Schneyer, David Marshall, Brianna Wu, Jennifer Pelland
Friday 19:00 - 19:50, Marina 4
With the rise of audiobooks, voice actors have gained new prominence. However, voice acting goes beyond just reading the words on the page. Our experts come together to talk about the profession of voice acting, to share tips and tricks, and to discuss various channels for gaining training and jobs. We'll also explore the kind of preparation needed for various genres, and how a voice performance differs from reading aloud or acting upon the stage.
Bob Kuhn, Kenneth Schneyer (M), Claire Suzanne Elizabeth Cooney
