Last weekend the Kah’Nath invaded London’s Excel Centre as Ren came to the MCM Comic Con. Here’s what the team got up to at the UK’s largest pop culture convention.
Director Kate Madison and costume designer Miriam Spring Davies represented Ren on the New British Web Series panel in the VidFest dome, alongside cast and crew from Year of Spies and The First Musketeer. Kate and Miriam explained Ren‘s Caxton studio set-up, and discussed the costumes, the extras and how the series is being promoted. Three videos from Ren were screened: the teaser trailer, the Daily Diaries trailer and an exclusive featurette introducing the key characters.
Meanwhile volunteers Ivan Moy, Robert Myles, Edward Morley and Tindi Lewis donned outfits from the series to dish out flyers and show the trailer to as many people as possible.
The team were also able to attend an interesting panel session with the makers of fantasy feature Arthur & Merlin, and Kate even got to meet YouTube icon Felicia Day, who was suitably impressed by the Ren trailer.
This was the first in what we hope will be a long line of convention appearances for Ren as our audience grows. Keep an eye on our Calendar for future events!
