• Making Sense Of Time Travel filled a fairly large (for RIT) classroom, and seemed to go quite well. It was definitely a good first experience running a panel.
• Frozen: More Than Just The Snow Queen filled an auditorium. It started out a little slow, but skipping to the sing-along definitely helped encourage audience participation. I wish we had made time for singing more songs than we did, but discussing Frozen with a room full of fans was still fun.
• Impact of Science Fiction on Modern Technology was a bit slow, largely due to a sub-optimal time slot. We still had a fair amount of audience participation considering how little audience there was. If we do something like this next year, we should try to get a time that does not conflict with a big concert :P
• Disney Death Battle was far more popular than I expected. When and I started writing death battles for fun, we had no plans of making it a panel at all, let alone expectations that people would come to it, but we ended up with a full house. Cutting the prewritten battles and letting the audience choose the fighters was definitely a good decision. Also, apparently all the “research” I did in advance was not nearly enough. Thankfully there was always someone in the audience who could help fill in the gaps in my memory. Given the panel's popularity, I want to try to expand on it next year, possibly with less restrictions and less controlled battles.
Thank you to everyone who attended our panels! I hope to see you again at Tora-Con 2015!
