We’re very excited to get started on this project. Saber and I will be working on the script for it starting in the second half of May when both of us are out of college.
You may be wondering why we need your help. Well, there’s a few reasons:
-Equipment: All I use to make my videos is a netbook and that definitely isn’t going to cut it for a project this large. I’ll also be looking for a nice camcorder to use for filming. Not to mention there are also some programs we may want to use for this.
-Traveling expenses: Besides BronyCon, we may be traveling to other conventions to film, and I actually might get the chance to go to Vancouver to talk with Steffan Andrews about the music on the show. It’s not all set in stone yet but it is a possibility. I’m looking to see if I can get interviews with other staff members as well.
-Production and shipping: To produce the DVDs and CDs for the rewards and ship them, we’ll need the money to produce all of them. We’re looking to produce 300 CDs and 300 DVDs once this is all finished. Even if the reward slots don’t run out, we’ll be giving away whatever we make. We’ll also need the money for international shipping because we want EVERYone to be able to have a fair chance at getting one.
The documentary will be uploaded to youtube and possibly elsewhere on the web once it is done. This is all a labor of love for the community, we’re not looking to make money off of it. All of the funding we get will be going towards this project in some way. Kickstarter won’t take any money until the project is completely funded– so you’re not charged a cent until we reach 100%.
If we work on this all summer, we should expect it to release around September, hopefully before Season 3 of MLP starts.
Thank you for reading and wish us luck!
