Auto Assembly Releases Script Reading Videos Online…!

Written by Duh_Prez on May 12, 2011 | News | Tags: , , , , ,

We’ve been working hard with our Youtube Channel over the last few weeks preparing lots of new videos for all of you including a lot of major news videos that we will be uploading over the next couple of weeks, but right now we’re pleased to announce the first in a series of uploads coming over the next couple of weeks featuring archive footage from the convention itself…

The first of these is online NOW and we are proud to announce the re-release of our first ever script reading from Auto Assembly 2009. Featuring a brand new 25 minute Beast Wars story written by man-of-the-moment Simon Furman, this was a fun script that played strictly for laughs and featured performances by our voice actor guests Gregg Berger and Ian James Corlett and comic artists Nick Roche and Simon Williams, supported by fans who auditioned for the remaining roles.

Previously uploaded to Youtube in three parts, it has now been remastered as a single part video and in High Definition, you can watch this much loved script as only our convention attendees were able to! You can see the full video on our channel here:-

The script readings have become an Auto Assembly tradition since 2009 and are a part of our Saturday night programme which is exclusive for those who attend the convention for the full weekend. In 2010, our script was again written for us by Simon Furman and featured Garry Chalk, Scott McNeil, Nick Roche and Simon Williams and will be available on Youtube in the next seven days so keep checking the channel to see what you have missed out.

If you are considering attending Auto Assembly 2011, this is a great way to get a teaser for what you can expect from our 2011 script! Again, Simon Furman is at the helm and David Kaye and Gregg Berger are both confirmed to take starring roles. Who else will be performing? You’ll have to come along to find out…!

More convention footage will be uploaded shortly including panels from Auto Assembly 2009 and 2010, and Garry Chalk’s acoustic concert from Auto Assembly 2010! We also have more massive announcements and news videos coming soon so keep an eye out for our next video shortly including our next guest update…

9. Also what kind of story would you like to get published if you had total freedom (unused character one-shot, Japanese stuff…)?

Probably Simon Furman doing a Dinobots miniseries with Nick Roche. Oh, wait. I already get to do that! Did I mention that I have a great job?
