Announcing the first

Produced by

May 1 & 2 – Located EVERYWHERE

A nightmare in the form of a virus has hit our dimension and compromised the World of the Arts: film, theater, music, dance, art, as well as all conventions and expos.  Gigi & Reggie Bannister choose to fight nightmare with nightmare. Utilizing the cult-classic and phenomenal franchise, Phantasm, they present Phantasm-Con 2020©! Produced by Production Magic Inc and Crestline Creative Arts Foundation (a nonprofit corp.).  

PHANTASM-CON© 2020, through Crestline Creative Arts Foundation, is raising funds for Personal Protection Equipment for First Responders and Veterinarians during the COVID-19 Crisis. 

PHANTASM-CON© 2020 (PHAN-CON© 2020) is the first VIRTUAL PHANTASM HORROR CONVENTION online with all the same things that you would find in any convention experience: 

  • A LIVE Main Stage featuring Q&As and interviews (some conducted by the host of Terror TV’s Terror Talk with Jay Michaels) with celebrity guests and fans.
  • An Exhibit Hall where visitors can click-thru to popular online stores and sites for memorabilia and other collectibles. 
  • A Film Room filled with interactive watch parties where fans can hang with celebrities in real time during scheduled screenings on Friday and Saturday night!
  • AND Autograph “Tables” and CHAT ROOMS where autographed celebrity photos and posters will be available through various online stores or to a designated stores and sites. 
  • Any ART room for Phan AND Pro work for display or sale.
  • PLUS Contest, Prizes, Giveaways, SWAG and more.
  • What’s a convention without a Food Court? Links to DELIVERY food and drinks sponsors! 

Phantasm broke new ground with its visually stunning imagery, visionary plot and themes, broken racial barriers, glass ceilings and FLYING BALLS. This new world reality needs a new “surreality!”

It’s not really the first Virtual Convention though….that honor goes to DEF-CON 1 which was hosted by George C. Romero and Romero Pictures Indie Brigade

1 month ago

Actually… Romero Pictures Indie Brigade did the first HUGE two-day online, virtual horror convention two weeks ago on March 28th and 29th. Tons of celebs and a full day of celebrity panels. It’s all on YouTube too, check it out!

Even cooler is the partnership between Romero Pictures Indie Brigade and none other than Heavy Metal Magazine which made for an amazing weekend full of stuff the fans totally loved!
