Default Announcing the 2014 Jerseyfest Model Kit & Statue Fair !

Hi guys:

The 2014 Jerseyfest Model Kit & Statue Fair will be held from August 1st to the 3rd in 2014 at the Marriott Hanover Hotel in Whippany, New Jersey.

We sold out of vendor tables at our last show with over 115, and are expecting a significant increase in vendors and attendees at the 2014 show. The success and growth spurt from our last show has allowed us to upgrade to a four star rated Marriott hotel in a great location, not far from Newark Airport. See hotel pictures by clicking here: Marriott Hanover Hotel ? Home of Jerseyfest 2014 » JerseyFestFair

Once again we are putting on a big show that will appeal to a diverse audience of modelers and collectors who are into vehicles, figures, mecha, props, etc. and various scales from miniatures to life-sized. And of course the show will have a huge amount of hobby supplies and materials of all kinds. Our model contest will once again be spectacular with phenomenal trophies and prizes. In the coming months, we will be announcing our special guest artists and information about presentations occurring during the vendor show on Saturday and Sunday. We also have some new activities and surprises for this year that we are not ready to announce yet - so stay tuned!

The show will once again kick off with “Jerseyfest Academy” all day classes on the Friday before the vendor show (i.e., August 1st). They will be mostly “hands on” classes featuring instruction by elite artists on painting, sculpting and constructing vehicle and figure model kits. Two of the classes are Sci-Fi ships related. See the latest info on the Academy here: Jerseyfest Academy Hobby Classes & Workshops » JerseyFestFair

We have a talented team working together to make the 2014 show extra special. Many people from all over the USA and international locations will be attending. The kits and presentations combined with the overall social experience all day and night will make for a great weekend of complete hobby bliss. Much more info to come folks !

Here is a "show report" summary of our last show with pictures: http://jerseyfestfair.com/?page_id=2949

Hope to see you at the big show !

The Jerseyfest Team

Hey guys:

Jerseyfest offers a full weekend long experience for all attendees, which means our program has numerous post show, night time activities and parties. To kick it off, the Stan Winston School of Arts will be doing a monster model painting class via a "webinar" on the Friday night before the Jerseyfest 2014 vendor show on August 1st, from 7:00pm to 10:00pm. The artist and subject to be used for the class to be announced.

Many advanced techniques and secrets that have been used by their artists for motion pictures will be covered. The class will be broadcast live on a big screen in a training conference room at the Marriott Hanover Hotel, which is the hotel where the vendor show is occurring. It will be interactive so the students and Stan Winston instructor can communicate via audio and video throughout the 3 hour long class.

Students will be able to sit back and watch the artist do various demonstrations while asking questions. Note that this is not a "hands on" class. Admission price is $15.00 per person and seats are limited, so we encourage people to sign up as soon as possible to secure a spot.

Hey guys:

We just published the Jerseyfest 2014 Model & Art Contest & Exhibit details with lots of pictures of the awards, trophies, and prizes.

It will go from Saturday to Sunday this year with the awards ceremony on Sunday at around 3:00pm. However, you will be able to check out your pieces on Saturday if needed, and still qualify for certain awards. We also added new award categories.

See all the info and pics here: http://jerseyfestfair.com/?page_id=68

We hope to see as many great entries this year as we did last year ! Remember that you can also bring pieces for display only in the exhibit and not compete if you don't want to.

Thanks,
Dave

Hey guys:

We just added Film FX legend “Phil Tippett” to our guest line up and we could not be more thrilled! He will be with "Chronicle Collectibles", a new vendor at our show displaying and selling elite model collectibles in limited quantities that they worked on with Phil and other artists. Phil is also doing a talk during the vendor show - see full schedule here: http://jerseyfestfair.com/?page_id=64

Phil’s varied career in visual effects has spanned more than 30 years and includes 2 Academy Awards, 6 Academy Award nominations, 1 BAFTA, 4 BAFTA nominations, 2 Emmys and the advent of modern digital effects in motion pictures. Phil’s roots in stop motion, modeling and practical effects and his ability to use this foundation in conjunction with developing technologies has made him one of a handful of artists whose careers have spanned the transition of visual effects from largely practical to digital.

Phil's past work includes the Star Wars Trilogy with ”Industrial Light & Magic Studios” (e.g., Imperial Walkers, Tauntauns, Rancor, Jabba the Hut, , etc.), Jurassic Park, the new Jurassic World movie, Dragonslayer, Robocop, Starship Troopers, etc.

See more of Phil’s biography here: http://jerseyfestfair.com/?page_id=435

Thanks,
Dave

The partying continues on Saturday night (Aug. 2nd) at Jerseyfest with the “Figure Models Show & Tell Party” and “Sci-Fi Vehicles & Mechs Show & Tell Party” (includes “Hardware Kitbasher’s Swap Meet”). Both will be held in separate conference rooms at the Marriott Hanover Hotel from 8:30pm to 11:00pm at no extra cost to vendor show attendees. Hobbyists will bring and talk about pieces they worked on in a laid back, informal setting with snacks and drinks. Then we all work our way over to the incredible “Auld Shebeen” Irish Pub on hotel property. We don’t have “cliques” at these parties – all show attendees are invited. And you just might be hanging out with movie FX legends…don’t miss it !

Are you a kitbasher? Are you always on the lookout for interesting plastic or resin parts for you next build? Do you have spare parts you are looking to sell or trade? Well if you do come and join our afterhours swap meet. This is an informal event for those looking to pick up or unload scrap or spare parts that can be put to good use. This event will be in the same room as the “Sci-Fi Modelers Show & Tell Party” on Saturday, August 2nd from 8:30pm to 11:00pm. All Jerseyfest show attendees will have access to this party at no extra charge.
