The minds behind Astronomicon, the Detroit area’s newest pop culture convention, have revealed a new documentary, entitled Astronomicon The Making Of: A Pop Culture Convention, available now via Amazon Prime.
Astronomicon The Making Of: A Pop Culture Convention takes viewers behind the scenes to experience what goes into the production and end result of a convention. Through incredible convention video footage and interviews with organizers Twiztid, the hard-working Astronomicon staff, guests and fans, viewers will get a feel for the Astronomicon experience and learn why its dedicated fanbase has made it Metro Detroit’s fastest-growing convention.
“We’re here because of them,” beloved actor Sid Haig says of his longtime friends in Twiztid in the documentary.
