The ladies at Dweeb Darlings think it is so important to help others find their voice and create their own series, films, and sketches... so, they created this panel discussion that tours to conventions and brings wonderful female creators together to discuss how to hone your skills, collaborate, and build a community in which to create and produce your own projects.
They recently premiered this panel at San Diego Comic Con 2014 to a completely packed house of potential and seasoned content creators and received rave reviews and look forward to bringing it to more venues.

"But we got lucky, and after a short wait, entered our first 2014 Panel, Spark Your Creativity: A Call to Action! Ladies Unite to Create More Female-Driven Content! on Saturday afternoon. Most of the panel was comprised of women who were fed up with the roles that they were receiving, or not receiving. Instead of sitting around doing nothing, they went out and started to create their own content while portraying roles that they wanted to play and being a voice for the messages that they wanted to speak out for. America Young (Geek Therapy, The Chimaera Project) even said that, after splitting her time, she found that she loved working behind the camera as much as she did in front of it. One of the key themes that several of the women expressed was the need to get out and create. If you have an idea, then get out there, network, collaborate, make it, and make it good. Each emphasized that being creative is a craft that takes a lot of practice, so keep practicing.
Heidi Cox (Stalking Levar, Geek Speak TV) spoke of the lack of female directors and her inability to ever find enough women, before telling the audience to contact her if they were female directors looking to collaborate. The panel was very supportive of one another and spoke of the female community that is growing within the entertainment industry."
