GeekShot Exclusive Photo Series Vol. 3 (Week 14) - WonderCon 2016 The Last Ship panel Travis Van Winkle Jocko Sims

Welcome to the GeekShot Photo Exclusive Series. This will be a weekly post featuring cool, interesting, or just plain awesome moments we have captured during San Diego Comic-Con and WonderCon. Each week we’ll post a photo by Beth or James of GeekShot Photography. We may include a short story about the photo, but sometimes we’ll just let the photo speak for itself.

About This Photo

Travis Van Winkle and Jocko Sims at The Last Ship panel at WonderCon 2016.

Panels sometimes get a bit violent!

Actually, this was a stunt done on stage during the panel. They did a great job considering the space restrictions and no practice.

These kinds of surprises done by guests are one of the main reasons a panel is elevated to above average. They didn’t need to take everyone out to lunch, reveal a super secret trailer, or give everyone a signed poster. All of those things would be awesome, but a panel just needs to be interesting, different, or fun in order to keep it from being just a boring PR job.

Have you seen a panel elevated by something different or surprising? Let us know in the comments.
