SDCC 2022: Pandemic Version #1 | Festivals & Awards


The activation for the CBS sitcom “Ghosts” was the “Summer season of Ghosts” at Petco Park. You bought your tarot playing cards and/or palm learn, obtained to take part in some archery and obtained your picture taken. Doing every exercise meant you obtained patches which may then be exchanged on the “camp” commissary for objects starting from bizarre (an arrow by way of the neck which references the present) to sensible (a steel cup).

Via word-of-mouth, I heard nice issues in regards to the “Severance” activation by Apple TV+. The collection is in regards to the sinister Lumon Industries, which makes use of a “severance” medical process to separate non-work reminiscences of their staff from their work reminiscences. Our group of 15 was delayed on the entry level when a press individual tried to enter the activation and not using a face masks. Face masks have been required in any respect SDCC actions until one was actively consuming or consuming. Whereas this activation wasn’t an official a part of SDCC, its first requirement was carrying a face masks. This individual gave three completely different excuses, however in the end, the activation crew insisted {that a} face masks be worn and the individual complied. In accordance with the activation crew, the actors have SAG necessities in place.

At previous SDCC weekends, you may get right into a screening at SDCC simply by strolling across the Studying or Horton Plaza. That a part of SDCC has been misplaced. Architect Jon Jerde’s Horton Plaza which helped revitalize the Gaslamp district after opening in 1985 was closed down in 2020. That meant one other off-site venue, one generally used for screenings for SDCC was not obtainable. 

For this iteration of SDCC, there have been free screenings, however you would possibly want a automobile to attend. On Friday, CinemaBlend and AMC Theatres sponsored a screening of a brand new horror flick, “Barbarian,” on the AMC Mission Valley as a part of AMC Thrills & Chills program. Collider and Hulu had a screening of “Prey” the earlier night. For the surprisingly humorous “Barbarian,” author/director Zach Cregger and one of many stars, Justin Lengthy, have been on the screening for a brief presentation in regards to the movie and posters got to all of the attendees. 

Whereas Jerde’s Horton Plaza is gone, the family-owned yogurt store that has saved me alive, fed and hydrated for each SDCC survived. The Candy Issues Frozen Yogurt store on the Promenade stage of Hilton San Diego Bayfront needed to shut down through the pandemic. Jake Scornavacco, managing accomplice, organized a GoFundMe fundraisers with a aim of $50,000 and managed to lift $26,997. The closure was, “actually nerve-wracking for our household. The store has supplied for our household for a very long time. It’s the coronary heart and soul of our household … Comedian-con company, they really feel like household due to their loyal help,” Scornavacco stated. “From a gross sales perspective, that is our greatest comic-con each. And it isn’t all about gross sales for us.” Attending to see their common comic-con clients, some who would possibly come day by day and even twice day by day provides the entire whirlwind weekend a household feeling. “So many individuals have been so excited to supply their very own help and have been so genera to spend their hard-earned cash to help the native companies within the space.”
