Tom Felton: Too Tough to Teach VoiceOver in full, to direct Meet the Fanatics and attend Tulsa & Birmingham Comic-Con

Since we last posted on Tom Felton he has done a voice over for one documentary and directed another. 
Channel 5 documentary Too Tough to Teach aired September 29th and October 6th with Tom doing voiceover. Part 1 of episode one can be viewed below with part 2 and 3, as well as part 1, 2 and 3 of episode 2 available by clicking the numbers.

Tom also will direct and host a documentary for BBC3 about Superfans. This has yet to air (people can still apply to be featured by emailing feltonsfanatics@icloud.com) and is summarised as the following:
In November 2014 Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy, Harry Potter) will be in the midst of Convention season heading to Tulsa to attend one of the world’s largest film and TV cult festivals Wizard World and on this side of the Atlantic attending Comic Con at Birmingham’s NEC. Every year thousands of super fans come together at these locations – wearing elaborate and intricate costumes – to meet the ‘real’ people behind their favourite shows. For the young men and women who attend it can be a life changing and often overwhelming experience as they meet the stars they’ve idolised for years.
For Tom the convention tour has been part of his life for over a decade, but now as an adult and with some distance from the franchise that made him world famous, Tom wants to take a step back and look at the conventions from the side of the super fan – attempting to understand for the first time why these young people become so attached to these fantastical books, movies and TV series and more importantly by spending time with fans and hearing from his celebrity friends and co-stars ask: when does a fan become a fanatic?
1×60′, director and presenter is Tom Felton. Executive producer: Colleen Flynn and Andrew Palmer from KEO Films. Commissioning editor for the BBC is Elliot Reed.
We'll post when we have a date of air.
The above summary also let us know that Tom will attend two conventions, Tulsa and Comic-Con in Birmingham. More info on Tulsa is available on Feltbeats here, while info on Comic-Con is here.
