Guests

Dameon Clarke

You have most recently been able to see Dameon in many live-action roles on Castle, Supernatural and most recently ADIC Clarke on Graceland. However Dameon Clarke has been voice acting for years, on the video game side of things he most prominently supplied the dulcet tones of Handsome Jack in Borderlands 2 and Kha'Zix and Singed in League of Legends. On the anime side of the fence he has voiced Scar in Fullmetal Alchemist, Kazuma Sohma in Fruits Basket, Proxy One in Ergo Proxy and was the voice of Cell in Dragonball Z. As Dameon is stepping in at the last moment his events have not been added to the schedule yet.

Gary Chalk

Garry Chalk has spent much of his time in front of a camera, having roles in Cold Squad, Eureka, Stargate SG-1 and MacGuyver. What some don't know is that Chalk has an impressive voice acting career spanning more than 20 years starting with King Hippo in Captain N: The Game Master, Guts Man in Megaman and oddly King Gurumes in the 1995 Canadian dub of Dragon Ball: Curse of the Blood Rubies. He later voiced Man-at-Arms in the reboot of He-Man and Sky Marshall Wade in last year's Voltron Force. But most famously he's the voice of Optimus Primal in Beast Wars / Beast Machines and Optimus Prime in Transformers: Armada, Transformers: Energon and Transformers: Cybertron. Gary will be in Film Ink Features at 1:50pm on Saturday and 12:40pm in the Supanova Pop Culture Expo Seminars on Sunday and you can meet him at the Madman booth on Saturday and Sunday.

Monty Oum

Monty Oum is Rooster Teeth's Director of Animation who is know for his fan created videos Haloid, Dead Fantasy and his work on RVB. Monty's work originally combined reverse engineering to retrieve video game assets with other animation assets to create his own videos. Monty is currently the director and of Rooster Teeth's original animated series RWBY.

Jordan Cwierz

Jordan Cwierz is the creator and animator of the Rooster Teeth Adventures. He began as a fan creating the animations based on the Rooster Teeth Podcast for fun but the team soon discovered his work and hired him to work for Rooster Teeth full time.
