BRONYCON Documentary is COMPLETE!

Sun Jan 20, 2013, 12:25 PM



It's finally finished! It's been several months in the making, and took the dedicated efforts of some very passionate people to complete.

For those of you who may not know, Bronies: The Extremely Unexpected Adult Fans of My Little Pony is a documentary (Produced by Michael Brockhoff, Executive Produced by John de Lancie, Tara Strong and myself) that endeavors to enlighten anyone who may be curious about who this unexpected fandom is comprised of, and just exactly why these adults are so passionate about something that was never intended for them.

You can purchase the documentary for download HERE!!!!

A gigantic thanks to all the generous backers who funded the film on Kickstarter. Your enthusiasm and support ensured the film could be held to a very high production standard. Additional thanks to the contributors: the bronies who agreed to be interviewed and/or to share their stories, and the fan artists who lent their talents to provide music and animation. I'm so proud that this film is not only about such an amazing fandom, but also features what it is capable of!!!

I do have a request for those of you kind enough to purchase the film. We do hope you will share the film with your family and close friends, but please do not upload the film to the Internet (YouTube, etc.) Though we raised a nice chunk of change on Kickstarter, all the money went into the making of the film. There are several people who, in the name of making the film the best it could be, agreed to wait until AFTER the film was complete to receive their compensation. The money raised at this point is for them. Please understand that making entertainment is a livelihood. The money is needed to live lives, pay bills, rent and mortgages, to feed families. These projects cannot be made if those making it cannot make their living from it.

Additionally, if the film is available to view all over the internet, it disquailifies it from being entered into many film festivals and keeps it from being considered for airing on tv, cable or other entertainment outlets.  Not only does that keep the makers of the film from their due compensation, but it lessens the reach to the non-brony audience, keeping people from opening their minds to who bronies are.

John de Lancie offers a more complete explanation in his letter to Equestria Daily here.

Thank you for honoring our request, and we sincerely hope you enjoy the film!!!

With love,
Lauren

We need to get this documentary out on TV or on DVD/Blu-ray just because of how amazing and incredibly well done it is on the history of bronies and how the cast and crew of Friendship is Magic took to it when they found out about them and the rest of the community.

I honestly just don't understand the haters and why they bashed it because it brought in older males and teens in their early 20s and older men when it is considered "girly". It's beyond girly by a billion miles because it's just that good, I can't exactly put my finger on what made it so successful but I'll leave it to those who know of it's secret.

What I just wrote on my Facebook:

Je viens d'écouter ceci est cela m'a grandement inspiré à plusieurs niveaux. Que ce soit ce qui rend les conventions aussi populaires, que My Little Pony est plus populaire que je le pensais, que j'aurais tellement pu en parler avec John de Lancie mais que c'est trop tard (vu que j'étais avec lui à Montreal Comiccon l'an dernier), que j'adore encore plus l'idée d'organiser des événements pour la communauté et d'amener un instant de joie absolue à ceux qui viennent vivre l'expérience d'une ''convention''.

I just watched this and it inspired me on so many levels. Be it about what makes conventions so popular, that My Little Pony is more popular than I had thought, that I could have sooooo talked about this with John de Lancie, but that it’s too late (seeing as I was with him at Montreal Comiccon last year), that I love even more the idea of organizing events for the whole community and to bring a moment of absolute joy to those who come live the experience of a ‘’convention’’.

You know, we can all like whatever but why must we all make a big deal about it?

Because some may be closed minded about the fact. The problem of this generation is that most of the people think that they can be right on any matter/subject/etc. Although, that's a problem itself, because that promotes mostly violence in different ways (Maybe that's where it came the bullying stuff as well). But the problem of this is that we may know what's wrong, but we don't find a complete way to solve it, or maybe we do, but people won't listen or pay attention to the solution, making it difficult.

oh, huh... I see what you mean.
But still, I don't get why there are more than one documentary being made about bronies when one is enough, and it starts Lauren Faust, your god.

No one in earth is God I tell you, we are nothing but humans beings, nothing more, nothing else. Yet, some people see this as an 'sick addiction', and they try to force us to dislike it by all means (Yup, bullying).

I dont really think its forcing, I think its just saying how they feel like you shouldn't express yourself to the point of annoyance
