We want to thank the Hilton West Palm Beach for being such great hosts for PalmCon 2016. We look forward to continuing this relationship for years to come.
The Hilton West Palm Beach is the Official Hotel of PalmCon
A magical, multidisciplinary adaptation of a graphic novel by Montreal-based scratch DJ and music producer Kid Koala is coming to the Olympia Theater (174 E Flagler St, Miami, FL 33131) April 8th!
Nufonia Must Fall is the story of a headphones-sporting robot on the verge of obsolescence and infatuated with a winsome office drone unfolds live via real-time filming/editing/projection of more than a dozen miniature stages and a cast of puppets. The elaborate action is directed by K.K. Barrett, recently Oscar-nominated for Her. DJ Kid Koala and the dynamic Afiara Quartet provide the live score for this silent film.
“Part of the enjoyment is glancing from the screen to the dimly lighted stage, seeing the puppeteers move from backdrop to backdrop and watching the ingenuity of the perspective and the minuscule gestures that translate into big-screen drama….It’s not hard to imagine that the little T4 robot — the plastic-resin puppet enlarged via digital video — has a heart.” – New York Times

September 24 & 25, 2016
PalmCon 2016 was our most ambitious show to date. We pulled out all the stops and tried many new ideas and concepts … some worked and others didn’t. We learned many valuable lessons and after having a “partner” drop out at the last minute we learned to become more self-sufficient. We are already talking about PalmCon 2017 and expect it to be an even better show with more to offer. The success of PalmCon 2016 had little to do with me and more to do with our team leaders and volunteers, without them there would be no PalmCon. I really want to thank (my wife) Bethany Pierro & Heidi Hess for their help leading up to the event and also for their leadership running the show. During the show, the staff was incredible, Andra Walt, Jade Heinkel, Leanne Priolo, Rebecca McCulley, Millie Lentz, Ryan Moore, Mark Hess, Joshua Handwerker, Terrie Travisono, Nick Priolo, Caitlin Cronin, Colton Handwerker, Grayson Handwerker, Sara Lentz, Aaron Lentz, Jack Graziano and Forrest Morelli all went above and beyond the call of duty, they were all very dedicated to the show and our attendees. I want to especially thank David Heringer who drove hundreds of miles to help out with the show, he was a tremendous asset. As for our crew of student volunteers … there are just not enough ways to say thank you to express my gratitude. Of course there were our awesome guests who were incredible to our staff and our attendees, so nice and so friendly … they really made the show special.
This year we also partnered with several new businesses and I think we both benefited from these partnerships and I hope that for years to come those partnerships can grow stronger. I also have to say what an incredible partner the Hilton West palm Beach was, the rate they gave our attendees was so generous and the facility was simply amazing. Also thank you to our friends at the Carmike Movico CityPlace who worked with us so that we could have our 30th anniversary special screening of The Transformers: The Movie. Finally I want to thank the staff at the Palm Beach County Convention Center … they did a spectacular job of handling all the chaos that PalmCon gathers around it.
I’m sure I have forgotten to thank about a hundred more people who worked behind the scenes to make PalmCon a success. Everyone who played a part in the show should be patted on the back and thanked for helping to make the tapestry that was PalmCon 2016. Finally I need to thank our awesome vendors and attendees, everyone at PalmCon plays their part in making it special.
