Tweet House Party at Comic-Con Aboard the USS Midway
Twitter-Themed Event to Include Celebrity Guests LeVar Burton, Brent Spiner, Tucker Max, and Iron Man Video DJ Mike Relm
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 30, 2010 — In the tradition of their blowout parties, the Parnassus Group announced today that they are pulling out all the stops for their Tweet House party on July 23rd at Comic Con. Destined to be one of the hottest events at Comic-Con, the party will take over two decks, including the Flight Deck, on the Aircraft Carrier USS Midway. Some of the guests and talents who will appear include DJ Mike Relm (who recently mixed a critically-acclaimed Iron Man commercial) as well as fan favorites LeVar Burton, Brent Spiner, and Tyrese Gibson.
“The Tweet House is always a great event” said actor, singer, and comic creator Tyrese Gibson, “I’m looking forward to connecting with other artists and my fans at one of the best parties at Comic-Con.”
Several noted artists, animators, and storytellers will take the stage to discuss their latest personal projects apart from their work at Pixar Animation Studios. These include: Oren Jacob, producer of the indie film “Ready, Set, Bag!”, Bobby Rubio creator of the comic series: “Alcatraz High” and “4 Gun Conclusion” and Jim Capobianco and his hand-animated short film “Leonardo.”
