Has anyone else been getting the urge for a NWM Marathon? Wouldn't it be great to be able to get a bunch of fans together for a two day showing at a science fiction convention? If we were to go through legal channels and get permission to show the episodes in a quasi-commercial setting, then this would greatly help the NWM cause since it would show Touchstone and/or UPN that the NWM franchise has commercial potential. Unfortunately, I'm just a lowly college student who's a bit too busy and inexperienced to plan this without some help but there's a few ways to tackle the NWM convention idea. 1) Have a completely seperate convention...get a bunch of fans together in a hotel floor for the marathon and whatever events could be planned. This could take quite a bit of dough to pay for the deposit for the rooms and to pay for any speakers, etc. And again, I'm not capable of planning this by myself during the semester. 2)Probably a less costly option would be to rent a room or some subportion of the standard regional science fiction conventions. This would also have the added bonus of ringing in some new fans as people wander through. Besides getting to see all of our favorite NWM episodes, another goal of this exercise is to show that the NWM can be a profitable franchise for Touchstone and UPN. Therefore it would be best to get permission, which probably means forking over some money to whoever owns the rights. This means whoever helps organizes this would have to talk to whomever whoever is responsible for granting that type of permission. It also means that the NWM convention would have to be run professionally with an eye towards making sure that everything's paid for and Touchstone, Paramount, and a bunch of NWM fans aren't left hanging. Any ideas? With enough backing this could be really good. How much would people be willing to pay to watch NWM? How far would you be willing to travel? Any ideas on other NWM related events?
