It’s been a while since Atlanta has had the pleasure of hosting a Horror con . Thanks to the great people at http://www.fromdusktillcon.com/ We’ve got an awesome con on the way March 9th-11th! Below is an interview with one of the con promoters…enjoy.
I LOVE living in Atlanta. Know why? Because of conventions like this one! I recently contacted a promoter of Days of the Dead about becoming a vendor. Well, one thing led to another and he graciously agreed to take the time to give me the inside scoop on this very popular convention. So without any further delay, I’d like to introduce you, the fans of deadburiedandback.com to Adolfo Dorta of fromdusktillcon.com.
Adolfo, Thanks in advance for taking time out of your obvious hectic schedule to do this interview.
JF: To begin, can you give us a little background on how the DAYS OF THE DEAD convention came to be?
AD: Originally, DAYS OF THE DEAD was going to be the mid west expansion show for one of the long established horror conventions on the east coast (which I am not at liberty to name) and early on they approached From Dusk Till Con about sponsoring a costume contest or film festival for that show. A few months later, the original promoter who owned the branding for the east coast convention changed his mind and dropped out, though the hotel and location were already secured and contracts were signed. Rick and I were offered the opportunity to take a partnership role and I was asked to become the face of what went on to become DAYS OF THE DEAD. We though about it for a few weeks, but as huge horror fans who go to about 4-7 horror conventions a year, it was an offer we simply couldn’t refuse.
