Picking up signals from the ether, TitanCon is tuning into ghostly transmissions from the past with Wireless Mystery Theatre.

Wireless Mystery Theatre

Wireless Mystery Theatre recreate the in-studio excitement of the night, transporting the audience back to the Golden Age of radio, to be AWED! and AMAZED! as they present radio plays live on stage. You are offered a peek through the studio's perspex glass to watch the live music, the hand-cranked sound effects, the 'radio personalities', and the old-time commercials, all live before your very ears.

Wireless Mystery Theatre

Originally broadcast in 1941, this archive programme contains two of H.P. Lovecraft's most unsettling stories, The Dunwich Horror and The Music of Erich Zann.

TitanCon is thrilled to announe that this special performance by Wireless Mystery Theatre will begin at 9 pm during our evening party in the Europa Exhibition Hall.

Right time to announce more Game of Thrones guests for TitanCon. This time we have two people from the production crew because the people behind the camera are just as important as those in front of it.

William Simpson ~ Storyboard Artist

William Simpson is a storyboard artist working on HBO's Game of Thrones, but he is far better known as a comic artist and illustrator. Over his 30 year career Will has worked for all the major comic houses: Dark Horse, DC, Vertigo, Marvel and 2000AD.

In recent years Will has concentrated primarily on illustration and filmmaking and has drawn storyboards for films including Breakfast on Pluto, Closing the Ring, Reign of Fire, City of Ember and Your Highness. Many of these were filmed in Belfast and this has naturally lead to Game of Thrones. William was at Belfast Moot 2 and we are very pleased to say he will be joining us again at TitanCon.

Maria Moore ~ Hair & make-up

Maria Moore is one of the talented team members of the Hair Department on HBO's Game of Thrones. Maria has over 20 years experience in hair and make-up design having spent 14 years in London's West End including big theatre productions such as Mamma Mia, Cats and Evita. Maria also has extensive TV credits including Children in Need, The Generation Game, Big Breakfast, GMTV, BBC Newsline as well as Film credits including Your Highness and City of Ember.

At TitanCon 2011 Maria will lead a Workshop in Make-up for Stage and Screen as part of our series of Film Making Workshops. Please note that this workshop is not specifically about Game of Thrones though Maria is likely to touch on her work for the show as she reveals the tricks of the trade and how to get actors ready for their big scene. A must see for any aspiring make-up artists and film makers that want to learn more.

Maria will be on other panels throughout the day to answer questions about hair design in Game of Thrones - just whatever you do don't mention "Eyebrow-Gate"...

Coming to Belfast Northern Ireland on Saturday 24 September 2011:

a SF/F Literary, Media and Gaming Convention for Belfast

TitanCon - A science fiction and fantasy literature, media and gaming convention for Belfast Northern Ireland including panels on HBO and George RR Martin's Game of Thrones, organised and run by GRRM fangroup the Brotherhood Without Banners, Studio NI, Northern Ireland's largest arts and culture group, The Other Ones a Belfast science fiction and fantasy society, with gaming events run by Arkham Gaming Centre and TableTopNorth.

Our Guest of Honour is Ian McDonald, author of The Dervish House, winner of Best Novel at the British Science Fiction Awards and nominated for Best Novel at the Hugo Awards this year.

Game of Thrones guests

We can categorically and definitely state that there WILL be cast and crew members from Game of Thrones as guests at TitanCon 2011. We have two cast members confirmed in Miltos Yerolemou (Syrio Forel) and Kristian Nairn (Hodor). We have spoken with a whole bunch of cast members over the last month or two since the second season was confirmed by HBO and everyone is excited about the possibility of being at TitanCon, meeting the fans and discussing the show.

We have close to a dozen more guests that have said already yes in principle but we can't announce who just yet because we are waiting on the production team to finalise the Season Two filming schedule for 2011. Once that happens we can confirm who will be in Belfast and available on 24 September to come down and join us. We are working as hard as we can to get confirmation of who our guests will be and as soon as we know we will announce it everywhere as loudly as we can!

Check out our promo video created by the hilarious Joseph Campo from the AWESOME and legendary Get Joe on the Show YouTube series.

Film making workshops
Anyone with an interest in film making would be a fool to miss our TitanCon film making workshops including 99 Minute Film School presented by the founder of Raindance Film Festival Elliot Grove. We've got more workshops to be announced very soon.

Full membership to TitanCon is only £10!

Full details and membership available via our website www.titancon.com

Friday 23 September - Culture Night Belfast - FREE entry
Award winning novelist Ian McDonald reads excerpts from his Hugo-nominated novel The Dervish House. Ian will also be joined by fellow TitanCon author guests Peadar Ó Guilín and T.A. Moore who will be reading excerpts from their novels.

The venue for this event is McHughs Bar, we've hired the basement bar for the evening. This is the same veue where the BWB held Belfast Moot 1 in 2009. This event is also a celebration of Studio NI's 7th anniversary so we'll be partying quite late (though those of us getting up at 6 am to start work on TitanCon might be bowing out early).

Sunday 25 September - Game of Thrones Coach Tour - Tickets £28
Our special Sunday event is a coach tour visiting various locations used in the filming of Game of Thrones season one including Tollymore Forest, Inch Abbey, Audleys Castle and Castle Ward (Winterfell courtyard) where we will be hosting a medieval feast, archery workshop by the SCA and a LARP event run by LARPNI.

The tour begins at 10.15 am departing from the Europa Hotel in Belfast. We won't be back till 9 pm so make sure you can stick around all day because you really don't want to miss this!

See the full Coach Tour schedule for more details. Spaces are limited so please buy your tickets as soon as possible to avoid disappointment!
