Bruce Woloshyn joins the line-up for 2018



Bruce Woloshyn was one of the key visual effects team members for both Stargate SG-1 and Stargate: Atlantis. Bruce's work can be seen in over 170 episodes of the combined series and garnered him five Primetime Emmy nominations for outstanding achievement in visual effects, as well as several other awards and nominations for his work on the franchise. Over the length of the Stargate SG-1 series, Bruce is credited as compositing the very first visual effect shot in the pilot,Children of the Gods, and the very last shot in the final episode of the series, Unending. This set of visual effects "bookends" on the series is unprecedented in episodic television. Bruce's close association with both SG-1 and Atlantis also included several cameo appearances in both shows over the years, as well as accompanying the SG-1 cast and crew to the arctic in 2007 for the filming of the Stargate SG-1 movie, Continuum. In addition to the Stargate franchise, Bruce has also created visual effects for such television series as Smallville, The Outer Limits, Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda and The Guard.

Since creating imagery for the Stargate franchise, Bruce has pursued his passion for visual effects by designing and supervising them for a wide variety of feature film projects. Bruce's feature film credits include the sci-fi action film, RoboCop (2014), the IMAX 3-D concert experience, Metallica Through The Never (2013), the Bruce Willis action film, RED 2 (2013), as well as the blockbusters, G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013), The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 & Part 2 (2011 & 2012) and the original Night At The Museum (2006). Bruce's latest work could be seen this summer in the action thriller, San Andreas, starring Dwayne Johnson for Warner Bros. and the revisiting of the comedy classic, Vacation, starring Ed Helms and Christina Applegate.

Bruce is a voting member of the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, the Visual Effects Society, and the Academy of Canadian Film and Television. Bruce's interest in the visual effects industry began as a child when he experimented with miniatures filmed on Super-8 mm film and continued in high school where he would shoot and edit reel-to-reel black and white videotape. Bruce graduated with Honors from the Radio and Television Arts program at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT), in Edmonton, Canada. In 2012, Bruce was named one of NAIT's top 50 all time alumni.

Joining the line-up for 2018 is everybody's favourite baddie Cliff Simon aka Ba'al



Arriving in 2000 in Los Angeles, Simon secured an agent, and landed a guest star role with Don Johnson on the hit TV series, Nash Bridges. A short time after that, he acquired the guest star role of Ba'al on Stargate SG-1. Cliff's combination of charming bad guy charisma and wicked sense of humour made him a viewer favourite antagonist, keeping his character recurring for six seasons. In 2008, Simon was brought back to play Ba'al in the Stargate movie Stargate: Continuum.

Once a year Cliff donates a percentage of his proceeds to Sea Shepherd.

So, as you may have gathered from our posts on here and the Facebook group, Stargate Command and GateWorld are coming to Gatecon in September.

We will be making further announcements with details of their involvement soon, but we look forward to welcoming Kieran Dickson, Jenny Seelman Stiven, David Read and Darren Sumner who will be hosting a very special SGC Lounge - a chill-out room for fans (and organisers too)

Heading to Vancouver to join in The Invasion will be members of Stargate Network. They will be on stage demonstrating the latest Gatecon-exclusive update to their game and will also be in the dealer room the rest of the time where you can have a go playing the game.

Taking to the Gatecon stage for his first panel - although he has been to Gatecon as a fan of course - is Stefan Zadorozny.

Stefan is possibly the biggest collector of Stargate memorabilia in the world and he will be bringing some goodies along for us to look at, including his full Ra costume.



Stefan will also be on stage with Stargate Network to assist with any translation.
