ImagineCon 2000 Report: Thursday, April 20th
This evening at 6PM EDT marked the begining of ImagineCon. Calisuri, Blasm, and myself spent the day making our final preparations for our ‘fan table’ at the front of the Pavillion Convention Center in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Having arrived late last night, due to a variety of transportation mishaps, we got a late start.
ImagineCon is a Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Horror convention hosting a wide variety of featured speakers and guests. You can find out more about ImagineCon at their website. ImageineCon will last until Sunday Apr 23rd, we hope if it is possible that you stop by and say “Hello”.
Starting at 6PM we started showing the Internet Preview to fans of all sorts. Many surprisingly did not realize that LOTR was being made into a set of films, but we educated them. The interest in the project, us, and Tolkien in general warmed our hearts and increased our panic over the presentations we have to make over the following two days. Many wonderful people stopped by to chat for a while including Shecky, Bill the Fox,Rosemary’s Baby, and Dehvyn.
Mike TeaVee (Paris Themmen in real life) of Willy Wonka fame stopped by our table to have an exclusive preview of Saturday’s presentation. It turns out he will be signing autographs then.
Hopefully in the morning the rest of our stuff will arrive courtesy of FedEx and we can truely spread the word about the films. We will be checking back in the following two nights to give you further reports from ImagineCon. You can take a peak at the action in the following photo’s.
