Along with today’s wallpaper, I wanted take a little bit to mention our current Kickstarter project to promote the documentary film we are trying to make. We are trying to raise $7250 to cover the cost of filming equipment and travel costs. Our plan is to attend four convention events this year, C2E2, HeroesCon, DragonCon and New York Comic Con. We will be interviewing attendees and some staff to try to shed some light on what makes these events so popular and to dispel the stereotypes that surround these events and the people who so loyally attend.
This film will be about fans, made by fans. When planning this project we discussed in great detail how we wanted to approach it to make sure it was made in a positive light and not to poke fun at or belittle anyone we interview. Our intention is to show that we as fans are just like any other fan of anything, whether it be sports or what have you. Rabid fans are everywhere and comic book, sci-fi, fantasy or horror fans are no different. We love and are passionate about these events and showing our support is what we do.
As of today, we have 18 days left to help raise the $7250 we need to make this possible. This is where YOU can help us. You can go to our Kickstarter page, and if you aren’t signed up, sign up and donate. Everyone who contributes will receive a special prize based on your level of contribution, but everyone will get something to thank you for your support.
So if you are a fan of Word of the Nerd or a ‘con fan and attendee, we would love your support with our project. If you’re a cosplayer, artist, writer or have anything to do with the comic book, sci-fi, fantasy, video games or horror genres, we’d love to talk to you about being interviewed during one of the events we’re attending. But first we need to make our fund raising goal. Help us make our film and show that we fans are not weirdos who dress-up as superheroes and live in our parents basements.
