Thanks to everyone who helped us reach our goal of $200,000!!!  You all never cease to amaze!  We still have a few more days of fundraising left---- if we get even further, the crew will get to film at some European Brony Conventions.  If you wanted to contribute and have not yet, please do so now.  

Plus, new casting calls and an art contest!  Please read this blog update from our Kickstarter page below....

***please note!  Unless specified, the casting calls are looking for anyone who considers themselves a brony whether they are male OR female!!***

We are the 7th most funded film of all time on Kickstarter. We are climbing to the top with 6 days to go. Thank you everyone!

So what's the next goal? International. Once we get to $270k, we'll be adding a big trip to the itinerary. We'll film at the Galacon Convention in Stuttgart, Germany on August 11 & 12th and BUCK BronyUKCon in Manchester, England on August 18th and 19th .


== CASTING CALL ==

We are looking for MLP fans that fit these descriptions. If one of these sounds like you, please email your story, your name, phone number, city you live in and a picture to info@bronydoc.com

• Military Bronies who are living in Arizona specifically.

• A parent and son in his 20's who are both fans and have bonded over MLP.

• An adult Brony who has Aspergers, Autism or other syndrome or disorder and has been helped by the show.

• Bronies living in the Southern California area with interesting lives and stories to tell.

It is important to note, this is just one of a few rounds of casting. Because we are looking for specific stories does not mean we have excluded others. We have received lots of emails and already have stories we don't need to cast for. We are also still considering all stories already sent to us.

== ART CONTEST ==

We are running a prizes.org contest looking for one piece of art that will be issued as a limited edition print for contributors to the Kickstarter campaign.

The winner will receive a $500 cash price and have an opportunity to meet Tara Strong, Lauren Faust and John de Lancie at BronyCon.

The contest starts soon at:
prizes.org/Create-a-limited-ed…

Aww I would have liked to participate. My son isn't in his 20's, he's 14 but he's the reason I too am now a Brony! Or would that be a Brony-mom?

Dang, I'm too late for this, huh?
I have Asperger's, live in Southern California, and definitely have interesting stories to tell....

• An adult Brony who has Aspergers, Autism or other syndrome or disorder and has been helped by the show.

I think you might need to define how this show has been helpful to them. If you're talking in terms of developing social skills, I doubt it has affected them positively.

Based on what I've observed on here and in other places on the 'net, Bronies with such disorders don't seem to benefit from using this cartoon as their compfy. They appear to become more unsocial and defensive when faced with criticism regarding their behaviour or drawings. They will often retort with the "I have aspergers/autism/other disorder, I can't help it!" and effectively deny that they're capable of taking any responsibility for themselves.

I am 21 and I'm from Bulgaria. :)
Since the show has not been translated into Bulgarian there are not many Bulgarian bronies :(
I keep searching tho. MLP and it's fan base is awesome !!! It turned my apathy towards life into at the very least hope and determination to better myself. I haven't told my dad about it yet. I see him only once in a month and i became a brony three month ago. I think he'll like it tho. The problem is that there are not even subtitles and he doesn't understand English.
I love MLP!
I was very charmed that the creator of the show was also the creator of "Powerpuff girls" and "fasers home for imaginary friends" I was like "i've seen this style before" :D Before that i had no idea who was making these shows, because as a kid i didn't rly read the credits at the end :D
Anyways I am very proud to be a brony and i think that if I see Lauren Faust and/or Tara Strong in person i will die of a hearth attack, but i will at least die completed :D

There's a brony convention in Stuttgart, Germany? Are you kidding? I've been living in Stuttgart for the last 9 years of my life, and I leave in one month to go to university in Florida. Guess I won't be going to Galacon in August =S

That really blows...

Aspergers is a part of the Autism spectrum. They're not one in the same, but it doesn't look right when you single it out like that.

i heard a story about a soldier whos life was saved by a Fluttershy doll. he became a brony on his break by watching the show with his dautugher. before he went back, she gave him this Fluttershy action figure. he kept it in hisbreast pocket. a few days later, some guy shot at him, and he would have died, if the doll hadnt altere the path of the bullet. intead of getting him in the heart, it got him in the side of the chest. i think hes from arizona, too. not sure though.

Congratulations! With just 25 hours to go as I type this, it looks like you should have about $300 K including the PayPal contributions. Enough to do the Euro trip, and perhaps something in Japan too. Well done, everyone.

Is the art contest open to countries outside of America? I have some concept ideas in my head but I don't want to spend time going through the creation process to find Brit's can't enter; in a similar manner to Welovefines t-shirt design contests.

I can't wait to see the documentary when it comes out! I've actually ended up meeting my fiance because of a MLP:FiM Minecraft server. ^.^ In fact when I was watching the season 2 finale I was crying because of how touching the episode was and because I was being reminded of my fiance. Granted it was before we had seen the episode but on the day the episode was aired he had proposed to me.

Definitely wish I could have time to join in and give my piece as a member of Northrop and the US Gov, there's a few of us at the agency who've taken to enjoying the MLP series, specially after what we deal with in other countries, its done a lot to put a smile on our faces!

Wishing the best of luck to you from down in Maryland and thanks to you and everyone else who've put the time and effort in to make this possible!
