Here’s the pictures from Protocon 2.0. If any one wants high res photos for printing, let me know.
The Wicker Man II: Fowlpurgisnacht, completed during this year’s Proto-con 2.0, is the sequel to the 1973 classic The Wicker Man, directed by Robin Hardy. The Wicker Man II: Fowlpurgisnacht follows Pete, who while in search of duck, discovers more than he bargained for, namely the Wicker Man 2.
If you have trouble viewing the movie, please download the newest version of Quicktime.
In case anyone wanted the transcript of the closing remarks made by me during Protocon 2.0, I have posted them here. Thanks to those that attended, if we continue to have such a huge turnout, we will need to find a bigger venue next year!
I know this is odd, but Live Update 2 is getting posted before Live Update 1. Yell at Pete and Mike. I did my part.
Anyway, we spent most of the day filming Wicker Man 2: Duck for Cover. Here’s a couple stills from it.
So Protocon is now well and truely under way.
Last night saw a screening of the cinematic classic “Manster”.

Protocon 2.0 will occur in early to mid-November (date to be determined).
It is a way off, but it is time to officially announce Proto-Con 2.0. Though the exact date and location of Proto-Con 2.0 has yet to be determined, it will most likely occur in October and be held in Maryland. So what do you need to do right now? Start making suggestions for events to occur at this year’s Proto-Con 2.0.
It also looks like we have some competition.
The rest of the pictures are up.
