As a horror event organizer myself, it’s nice to talk to other people who do some of the same crazy things I do. It’s like joining brothers and sister in combat in a weird sort of way. It is a combat that we love and dedicate ourselves to, but it can seem like combat nonetheless. But why all the passion and hard work? What makes an event dedicated to bringing fans of horror together so important to us? That is exactly what I brought my guests together to answer.
Eric Morgret is programming the film festival at the horror convention known as Crypticon Seattle, and Lorelei Shannon is behind this year’s panel programming. Both of them are responsible for a large chunk of the content that Crypticon Seattle is bringing to the Pacific Northwest on Memorial Day Weekend, so I knew they would be great to talk to about the enterprise of horror convention organizing. Please join us in our conversation, and plan to attend if you can! May 22nd to 24th, 2015 at Seattle Hilton!
Also, follow the convention on social media!
