This is a bit of an old vid but as we’re approaching the UK convention season I thought it’d be fun to throw it up for anyone who has never been to an event. Back in 2010 the organisers of the MCM Expo decided to film the entire 4 days of their convention (2 days of set up, 2 days of con) and speed it up so that it all fitted into 6 minutes. While you’ll probably end up skipping ahead a few times, it is fascinating to see just how much work goes on behind the scenes at these mega-events and the sheer number of people that fill up the venue when the doors finally open is worth a look in itself.
If this has whetted your appetite for checking out a comic con then remember that you can catch Steve and I at the following conventions this year:
Demoncon, Maidstone, Kent
MCM Expo, London
London Film & Comic Con, London
Thought Bubble, Leeds
There’s bound to be a few more to announce as we go, so keep an eye on the site for updates.
