2014 “Robot Rendezvous” Party at #SDCC

by Steve Broback on July 18, 2014

The Tweet House is returning to San Diego Comic-Con 2014, and as usual will be hosting one of the most innovative parties at the expo. In addition, we are proud to announce that in the tradition of our gatherings at CES and various film festivals, we will be offering up official panels on several of the main stages.

Our Robotics Session:

This year we will be hosting two sessions in the main expo hall, including one titled “Pop Culture and the Robot Reality” on Saturday July 26, which will feature Brian David Johnson (Resident futurist at Intel), Jennifer Barry (Senior Robotics Engineer at Rethink Robotics), John DiMaggio (the voice of Bender on Futurama), Jason Crusan (Director, Advanced Exploration Systems Division at NASA), and Ross Ingram (Community Manager for Sphero).

Our Robot “After” Party 5pm to 7pm:

Please join several of our panelists, 150 of your fellow robot enthusiasts, and some examples of the best in commercial and space-based robotics at our Comic-Con “Robot Rendezvous.”

Baxter the Robot will be Pouring w00tstout:

Our Robot Rendezvous will be the only party at #SDCC featuring Baxter, an autonomous humanoid robot who will be pouring w00tstout for our guests. w00tstout is a massive yet seductive imperial stout brewed with wheat, flaked rye, pecans and stoneground chocolate, then partially aged in Kentucky Bourbon barrels.


Location: Stone Brewing Tap Room, 795 J Street in San Diego.
Date and Time: Saturday, July 26, 5:00pm to 7:00pm.

How to Attend:

We will be opening up registration very soon. Please fill out this very short form and we will notify you of how to get tickets when they become available.

IKTVEarlier this year, members of the Tweet House team assisted the producers of the amazing documentary “I Know That Voice” with the social promotion of their premiere in Hollywood.

One of the session submissions we made to the programmers of San Diego Comic-Con 2014 was a panel that would bring to light much of the content that did not make the final cut for the documentary.

We were ecstatic to have received word that this session (along with our robotics panel) was accepted and will be held on:

7/24/14 at 1:00p.m. – 2:00p.m. in Room: 25ABC of the San Diego Convention Center.

Going to Comic-Con? We hope you can join these amazing voice actors on 7/24 and hear their stories.

Our session description as will be seen in the expo program guide:

I Know That Voice: Insights from the Cutting Room Floor
John DiMaggio (executive producer of IKTV, also the voice of Bender from Futurama, Jake The Dog from Adventure Time, IFC’s Out There, and many more) has reassembled the cast and crew of IKTV to take a deep-dive into the hundreds of hours of documentary footage that didn’t make it to the big screen. Panelists Fred Tatasciore (Hulk, Ben 10, Mad), Andrea Romano (25-time Emmy nominee, 8-time Emmy winner for Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain, and more), Rob Paulsen (Darkwing Duck, Animaniacs), Lawrence Shapiro (director, IKTV), Dee Bradley Baker (Gravity Falls, Phineas and Ferb), and Steve Broback (Tweet House, IKTV Social Team), will discuss behind the scenes stories, techniques that voice actors use to deliver great performances, and much more!
