Lloyd Kaufman, creator of The Toxic Avenger and the Troma Team will be appearing in person this weekend at The 30th Annual Dragon Con in Atlanta, Georgia. Kaufman will be posing for photographs and signing autographs for free all weekend alongside the beloved Toxie, it was announced today by Elizabeth D’Ambrosio, spokesperson for Troma Entertainment.
Dragon Con, in its 30th celebrated year (and Kaufman’s relationship and friendship with Dragon Con goes way back there as well!) is unique in that it fuses many interests for convention-goers, combining both the movie and literature world of science-fiction and fantasy alongside gaming and the growing world of Cos-Play.
Lloyd Kaufman and the Troma Team, including Toxie and the World-Famous Super-Tromettes will be appearing in the Troma Booth which will be located on Floor 1 of the Exhibit-Mart 1404.
Lloyd Kaufman will be presenting his secrets and unique insight on the business of filmmaking as well as the creative process throughout the convention weekend. The director and president of 42 year old Independent Film Company Troma Entertainment will be featured on three panels on topics including a Tromatic POV on Film Business, Filmmaking Tips and How to Sell your Script!
