The latest episode of Designing Worlds – the first of two visits to Fantasy Faire (recorded before the Faire closed on May 1st) – is now on the web.
We talked to Elizabeth Tinsley, the Faire organiser, about the Faire and how it works. And we meet region designers Jaimy Hancroft and Eowyn Swords, who created the amazing Dangarnon, Judi Newall, one of the organisers of the Lierary Festival – and the person responsible for the Guides that assisted people who made the Literary Tours to ten of the regions, OldeSoul Eldmar, the Chief of the Fairelands Pawlice, and AineMarie Flanagan, who talks about bringing a store to Fantasy Faire.
Ironically, we filmed this show in the quiet days before the Faire opened … so no-one was quite sure that it would be the fantastic success that it was, raising over L$7,714,000 (US$30,857) and producing some amazing stories – many of which you can read on the website. In fact, the whole website is filled with the story of Fantasy Faire, and well worth a look!
