Including events based around, anime, manga, movies, art, cosplay and more, Cirque du Geek is a celebration of everything that excites us about being a geek! It is a FREE 3-day convention that takes place at the Waterville Public Library and in participating businesses every September.
Join us at 6pm on opening night of Cirque du Geek 2017 (Friday, September 8th) at the Waterville Opera House where Cirque du Geek guests Hannah Telle and Jeff Kline will each tell us about their work, and host a special Q&A Panel!
Hannah Telle-“Hannah Telle is an actress and singer-songwriter from Shelby, North Carolina. She is best known for her role as the main character “Max Caulfield” in the hit video game series ‘Life is Strange’, published by Square Enix. ‘Life is Strange’ won a BAFTA for Best Story and was the recipient of many more awards including The Game award for Games for Change. She also provided motion capture and voices for twin sisters Iris and Rose Campbell in Square Enix’s ‘Murdered: Soul Suspect’. Hannah will be a panelist at PAX West 2017. Her on-camera credits include the lead role in the film ‘Flesh and Blood’ which premiered at the 2016 San Diego Comic Con, as well as the lead role opposite veteran Hollywood actor Eric Roberts in the film ‘Six Matches’, which premiered at the 2017 Beverly Hills International Film Festival.”
Jeff Kline- For nearly three decades, Jeff Kline has been one of the fortunate few “genre nerds” able to move freely between primetime and daytime television, motion pictures and the Web; the boardroom and the bullpen; and the east and west coasts. He’s written/produced more than 1,000 episodes of programming to-date. And, most recently, formed Darby Pop Publishing expressly so he could play in the comic book “sandbox” with some of his most creative pals.
To date, Darby Pop has released 12 trade paperbacks. Including a wildly-successful series co-written by Kline and Shannon Lee – Bruce Lee: The Dragon Rises – debuted last year. Three more titles – Things You Shouldn’t Remember, Bastard’s Waltz, and Santa Claus: Private Eye – drop in Summer/Fall ’17.
As both a writer and showrunner, Kline has been responsible for more than 40 animated and live-action series, specials, and pilots. Most recently, he was the executive producer and co-developer of Transformer’s: Robots in Disguise (Cartoon Network) – a follow-up to his multiple Daytime Emmy® Award-winning CG series, Transformer’s Prime (The Hub).
Previously, Kline was executive producer of a slew of fan-favorite series including That Was Then (ABC), My Friends Tigger and Pooh (Disney Playhouse), Jackie Chan Adventures (Kids WB), Men in Black: The Animated Series (Kids WB), Extreme Ghostbusters (BKN), Dragon tales (PBS), and Harold and the Purple Crayon (HBO Family).
