Topic: FFCon2k13: 10 Year Anniversary

I think there are two big options for our 10 year anniversary.

Las Vegas

I love the idea of Vegas because flights are CHEAP (and it's also drive-able for all the people out here in LA). It's also a place you can go out and have a lot of fun and not worry about people complaining. Rich in cinema history, and imagine the kinds of crazy films we can make with all the colorful and wild stuff over there! It can be deadly hot in the summer though, but probably more affordable than other times.

Florida

Orlando is a pretty cheap airport to fly into, and it's a quick drive to either coast. I'd love to rent a BIG beach house somewhere on the Gulf coast, and enjoy beach BBQ cook outs, and do the suburbia thing like we did back in the midwest for our first Con. Downside is that Florida is a far drive for most everyone, and not sure we have that large of a built-in community in that area compared to other places.

Thoughts?

I would LOVE either really. And you really make good points for both. If I had to choose one, HAD to, it'd probably be Vegas, only because it's easier to get to...

On the other hand I'm more of a beach BBQ kinda guy. Not that I've ever been to one, but I'm more that guy than the Vegas/Casino/Night Life kinda guy...

I could stand to visit Vegas again. Only been there once. Super bummed I couldn't make it the LA one this year, though. Still, I got a little more time with this one. I can get super cheap flights to Las Vegas pretty much year round. $100 round trip. I deal blackjack for a living so I could also be a handy guy to have around. wink

Re: FFCon2k13: 10 Year Anniversary

I was all set to plan my LA trip for next year...guess I'll just have to visit the states twice then smile
I've been to Florida a few times and love it there, but I've never been to Vegas, so that would be really cool!

As much as the Florida trip would be awesome, logistically I think Vegas makes the most sense. Easier drive and cheaper flights.

I've been to Vegas once before (on a school Geography trip haha!) and it was great. Justin's right about the food and I would love to explore more of that city. It sucks that Matt and I wouldn't be able to drink because you guys have the stupid over 21 law (sheesh) but it would be great fun anyway. I remember that New York New York rollercoaster was pretty good.

Having said that Florida would be nice to see, but to be honest it doesn't matter where we have it. I'm coming no matter what

If i only had the money, haha.

Either location is fine by me. I'm about equidistant from either, and I'd attend anywhere!

Re: FFCon2k13: 10 Year Anniversary

I'm new to the forum, but I've seen what you guys have been doing and I love it. For me Florida would be great since I'm in Puerto Rico and It is a "cheap"/"Short" flight from here. I would love to get up there for the learning experience, fun and meeting new people that are into the thing I love the most, which is making movies.
Keep in touch guys.
