We enjoyed an entertaining weekend at Culture Shock in Indianapolis. Brought to you by the fine folks at Days of the Dead, Culture Shock's debut was a big hit with everyone.
As with every such convention, there are plenty of big name celebrities and there are also newer, up-and-coming celebrity guests. I always enjoy meeting my longtime favorites, but I also like learning about the newer folks.
Chris Pezzano was the first celebrity guest I found at Culture Shock. Pezzano (or Pezzombie, as he is often called) has acted a bit. He has also done makeup, special effects works and even has made a few interesting creations involving actual bones. You can see some of his creations and learn a little about him in the Official Culture Shock Interview with Chris Pezzano.
Pezzano has appeared in The Demon's Rook (2013), Dead Still (2014) and Razor Days (2012). I love a good thriller or horror movie and these three certainly qualify. Razor Days also stars Amy Lynn Best, an old friend of Johngy's Beat.
Pezzano is not a major star yet, but he is another example of the interesting people at these conventions. I'll be following his career and hopefully catching him at a con in the future, maybe even Days of the Dead this summer.
Check out PezzombieFX on Facebook to learn more about him and to get his updates.
