Episode 213 – Cary Gordon – Rebranding / audio

rebranding

Cary Gordon with Prime Camera (@PrimeCameraUSA on twitter) returns to discuss rebranding with host Craig Price. It’s not common that a guest not named Alan Cerny comes on the show twice in a year. Last time, Cary came on to discuss his position as Social Media Marketer for Comicpalooza. This time, he’s here to discuss his day job with Microsearch, a name you may have heard in our speakers roundtable episode over the summer. When Cary mentioned to Craig that Microsearch was rebranding to become Prime Camera, even Craig could see that this would be a perfect opportunity to bring a case study to the podcast.  The two discuss the process of rebranding, why a company of 33 years felt now was the time to change, how to plan for a major change, dealing with resistance, how the new branding brought a larger scope to the company. and oh yeah….the briefly talk about how Batman v Superman sucked.  You can’t put two comicpalooza people in a room without it getting a bit nerdy.

Prime Camera grand opening will be October 12th at their location at 11500 S Sam Houston Parkway West Houston ,TX with a full day of workshops, discounts and prizes. You can find them at their new website http://primecamera.com as well as on twitter @PrimecameraUSA,  Instagram at PrimeCameraUSA and Facebook.

Episode 161 – John Simons – Comicpalooza 2015 / audio

comicpalooza

John Simons, chairman of Comicpalooza (@comicpalooza on twitter) speaks with host Craig Price about putting a comic-con together. The two discuss the modest history of Comicpalooza from it’s humble beginnings in a movie theater lobby to the juggernaut can’t miss festival that boast 60,000 attendees (more are expected this year!). John explains how he had hoped to grow into a hotel ballroom type of space only to see his comic-con jump into the cavernous George R Brown Convention Center. He talks about how he plans ahead (sometime up to 3 years in advance) for upcoming conventions, who they decide to ask and what type of programming you can expect this year. Craig goes on and on about how great John Barrowman was at Comicpalooza 2014 (It’s kind of embarrassing), the diversity of programming available (it’s really like 10 small conventions happening at once) and the love of beer while waiting in line.

Comicpalooza’s mission is to provide the best and biggest annual multi-format pop culture convention in the southwest region of the United States, serving not only the fans of comics, science fiction, fantasy, video and table top gaming, anime, music and film, but also as a trade show and showcase for the studios, publishers, and manufacturers in those industries.

This year Comicpalooza is happening on May 22nd through the 25th. You can learn about all the guests currently scheduled (Craig is excited to see Haley Atwell and Henry Winkler) at http://www.comicpalooza.com
