Halo-8 to Introduce Star of Hack/Slash Movie at SDCC 2011

Hack/Slash

Press Release:

Halo-8 to introduce star of HACK/SLASH at San Diego Comic Con

- Studio’s con presence will include panels on tech initiatives & creator-owned transmedia -
- limited-edition merch to include Grant Morrison by Camilla D’Errico & new Godkiller -

Grant Morrison Talking With Gods Camilla D'Errico

Godkiller trade paperback

Comics, Film & Transmedia Studio Halo-8 has a lot planned for San Diego Comic Con 2011.

Announcement of Cassie Hack-tress
The most eagerly anticipated event is Halo-8?s introduction of the star playing Cassie Hack in the upcoming Hack/Slash illustrated film.

The actress, who is also appearing at SDCC for a panel promoting another genre-series she stars in, will join creator Tim Seeley and director Matt Pizzolo at Halo-8?s panel Saturday 7pm in Room 9.

The Hack/Slash illustrated film is currently in production. It mixes comic book sequential art with 3D CGI and, in a new twist for Halo-8, rotoscoped animation of live-action performances.

“Cassie is a great role and there are a lot of established actresses who’d love to bring her to life. We feel really blessed by the actress we’ve selected to take on the role–not only is she a fan-favorite but she herself is a fan of Tim, Cassie, and Vlad” said Pizzolo, who is directing the film and designing its visual style. “With Hack/Slash, we’re working more with green screen and roto-style animation, so this actress will literally be taking on Cassie’s skin.”

In the past, actresses including Megan Fox and Kat Dennings have spoken publicly about how they’d love to play Cassie Hack, and a Twitter campaign #AllisonScag4Cassie trended for Warehouse-13?s Allison Scagliotti to win the coveted role.

Grant Morrison: Talking With Gods limited DVD
Patrick Meaney’s documentary about the beloved and controversial writer behind All-Star Superman, Batman Inc., The Invisibles, We3,and New X-Men will be available on DVD at the Halo-8 booth with a limited edition cover by illustrator Camilla D’Errico. Meaney will also be appearing at the Halo-8 booth to autograph DVDs and answer questions throughout the con.

Godkiller trade, new epilogue, & spinoff mini-series
The 6-issue Godkiller: Walk Among Us series will be collected for the first time in a 230-page trade paperback that includes an all-new 15-page epilogue.

The Godkiller spinoff mini-series The Long Knives: Becoming Vultures will also debut at SDCC in the form of a 222-page graphic novel (book 1 of 2).

With Godkiller 2: Tomorrow’s Ashes currently in production, new art will be unveiled at Con.

Panels
- Horror on the Paneled Page
[Thurs 1:30-2:30, Room 24ABC]
Pizzolo is appearing on the AICN Comics: Horror on the Paneled Pagepanel with Steve Niles (30 Days of Night), Joshua Hale Fialkov (I, Vampire), David Quinn (Faust), Tim Seeley (Hack/Slash), Brandon Seifert (Witch Doctor), Brea GrantZane Grant (We Will Bury You), and Mark L Miller (moderator, Ain’t It Cool News) to talk about comics & horror.

- Warren Ellis: Captured Ghosts
[Fri 7:00-8:00, Room 7AB]
Director Patrick Meaney and DP/Producer Jordan Rennert will host a panel with previews and discussions of the upcoming documentary, which features interviews with Warren Ellis (obviously), Ben Templesmith (Fell), Dame Helen Mirren (RED), Matt Fraction(Invincible Iron Man), Claudio Sanchez (Coheed & Cambria), Stoya(pornstar), Joe Quesada (Marvel CCO), Andy Hurley (Fall Out Boy), Patton Oswalt (Ratatouille), Phil Jimenez (New X-Men), and many more.

Pizzolo will run a short demo at the panel showcasing the EtherFilm technology Halo-8 is designing for an interactive release of Captured Ghosts (the EtherFilm format will be more fully discussed at Halo-8?s Saturday panel).

- Halo-8 Comics, Animation & Creator-Owned Transmedia
[Sat 7:00-8:00, Room 9]
Halo-8?s panel this year will focus on how technology and transmedia can disrupt comics in a way that is beneficial to creators.

Pizzolo will demo Halo-8?s EtherFilm technology, which merges film, comics, animation, & more into a new platform of interactive, transmedia storytelling.

The panel will also discuss the success of the creator-owned Godkiller,which had one of the broadest releases for a creator-owned property this year through accounts ranging from Best Buy & Hot Topic to Comcast & Time Warner Cable & Verizon FiOS to Playstation & Xbox & Netflix & Hulu to movie theaters. Godkiller’s unique release included availability in 80-million homes through cable-VOD and was watched digitally (thru rental, subscription, or ad-supported) nearly 20,000 times in the past two weeks alone even though it’s been more than a year since the initial release. This approach can serve as a blueprint for creators interested in using technology to reach exponentially broader audiences.

The panel will reach its climactic conclusion when Tim Seeley presents the star of Hack/Slash.
