It could be argued that J.J. Abrams' upcoming Star Wars movie is actually a very big fan film. J.J. Abrams is long known to be a fan of Star Wars, and he certainly didn't create the universe, but he does get to play in the sandbox. So how does a fan grow into a creator? What examples exist in fandom of fans becoming successful creators? Can fanfic writers transition into working professionals? Join Chris Gore (Film Threat, G4TV's Attack of the Show), Adrianne Curry (cosplay queen, America’s Next Top Model), Mary Forrest (The Biloon-Forrest Project podcast), Tommy Bechtold (ABC’s The Middle), Matt Keil (G4TV’s X-Play), Jon Schnepp (Metalocalypse, The Death of Superman Lives) and more for a lively discussion. In addition, one panelist will write a piece of fan fiction based on audience suggestions that will be read aloud for the finale.
