Help the Bronycon Documentary

Mon May 28, 2012, 3:27 PM


Many of you My Little Pony fans may have heard the amazing news that John de Lancie, who played the infamous Q on Star Trek: The Next Generation, and who I was so honored to have play the villain Discord for MLP:FiM, has announced that he will be Executive Producing a documentary about Bronies and Bronycon.

The new news is that Tara Strong (voice of Twilight Sparkle) and I have been brought on board as Executive Producers, as well.  And to make this documentary as amazing as possible, we are reaching out to raise even more money for film on our Kickstarter page.  Please see the official announcement below:

We are pleased to announce that Tara Strong and Lauren Faust have joined us as executive producers of the documentary. Both bring amazing talent and exciting ideas that will help make this film even better.

We are also announcing a new funding push. The response to our casting call was overwhelming. There are so many amazing and inspiring stories out there. We can't tell them all, but with your help we can include lots of them. As you may know we started out as a documentary essentially covering a convention, which is taking place over a few days, but we want to do more. We want to take viewers into the homes of the amazing people who identify as Bronies. This costs money. We have to pay for travel and hotels, crew members and equipment rentals.

Our new goal is $200,000. So how do we get there? We've added some great rewards – so please consider upping your pledge. From having your pony OC drawn by Lauren to getting your Blu-ray disk and artwork signed by Tara, Lauren and John to having dinner with all three, we have something for everyone.

Please spread the word to help us drive toward the goal, which will help make this possible. If you know anyone who has not already made a pledge, please direct him or her to the Kickstarter campaign.


Please stop by our Kickstarter page and consider making a pledge.  You can also pledge via Paypal.  Even a small amount is a huge help.

BTW--- you should check out all the pledge levels, but there is one where the incentive is to receive ORIGINAL ART FROM ME OF YOU PONY OC!!  For those interested, I will draw your very own Pony Original Character in one of the styles seen at the bottom of this post.

Thanks to all who have pledged so far!

If it is possible for you to answer a question for not just me, but all others troubled by the question... How would we be able to order a coy of the documentary, I am not sure if I have to pledge on the kickstarter, or if there is even a place to order at the moment. So I hope you would be able to help, thanks.

If it's not too late, I know two Bronies who would most likely love to be a part of this! Well, one more than the other, but still!

Look at her. Shamlessly encouraging these disgusting bronies just to make hasboro a few more bucks. Yeah, i get that basement dwellers get more allowance than little girls, but do you really have to pitch in to the point where you're drawing... Whats the count now... 22? Yes, 22 brony fursonas just to help raise money for some mastrubatory project designed to get the author's point across as bluntly and transparently as possible? All this will ever amount to is brockhoff telling half-truths about how great bronies are, covering up all the sexual aspects of the "fandom", and walking home with 232,022 dollars in his pocket. And all she can do is encourage him.

Awwwwww, Well this is disappointing. I just found out about the bronycon documentary and it's too late to send a email to be apart of it. I wish had a time machine or better yet have doctor whooves with the tardis pick me up and take me to the documentary. Hopefully they ask for autistic bronys that live in Alaska. It would be nice to meet other autistic brony's like me.

Now that I helped, I would really like to add that I hope to see some long term fans represented.

While G4 is wonderful and has some of my favorite ponies, I'd really like to see some shout outs to those of us who have been fans since G1. I feel like a lot of the "bronies" are G4 exclusive and even bash other Generations, which, is hardly good fandom behavior, and feel it is disrespectful of the existing fan base.

I'm still not a huge fan of the word "Brony" as a word for all fans, as I feel it implies maleness exclusively.
I have no issue with it being used as a con name or in conjunction with "Bronies and Pegasisters" as I have seen it before. I just hesitate to refer to my decidedly female self as a "bro" anything.

hi,
here's my shoutout, i've accualy been watching MLP since 1984 and I remember when it was 'My Pretty Pony' in 1982, I still remember the original creator giving a interview that makes sence today I didnt understand back then but I do today the quote was 'every little girl deserve to have their own pretty pony' and to be honest I still love it to this day!

It is such a wonderful, fun fandom to be a part of over the years.

It is strange having it be so large within the past 2 years thanks to FiM. I am glad something as awesome as FiM is as successful as it is.

For the record, FIREFLY is my favorite pony, followed closely by Pinkie Pie and Twilight Sparkle.

I loved Firefly since Firefly's Adventure and it is really that pilot which triggered my love of MLP, and subsequently, I LOVED the Season openers for FiM because they reminded me so much of the MLP I remembered from my childhood and that is a wonderful thing.

I hate being dirt poor... CURSE YOU, ART SCHOOL TUITIONSSS!!! Gosh, I REALLY, REALLY would love to meet you, Tara, and John... Mostly you. That is something I must do before I die. If I was rich, I'd totally donate. You only do Pony OC's? No dragon OC's? I actually have one with a similar design to Garble, but I had my Smokey's design almost a year prior to the "Dragon Quest" episode. It amused me greatly. XP

As someone who grew up with both Star Trek: TNG and My Little Pony (I'm a guy, but I have an older sister), I wish I could help, but I'm broke. I still wish you guys the best of luck and am anxious to see how this turns out.

Excuse me, Lauren, but I have a question about the Making of My Little Pony: Friendship is magic.

I hope I am not wasting your time, but it is just something I need to know, as an aspiring animator.

In regards to the voice work done on the show, did you have any say on who voiced which character (i.e. did you need to give your "approval" before a particular voice actress was cast in a particular role)? Or was the final decision up to the show's voice director?

It is so amazing to see how invested John Delancie has become suddenly with this fanbase. Discord is one of my favorite villains of an animated tv show of all time, his design, voice acting, facial expressions, animation, methods, all are fantastic. I cannot decide if he would be better just left alone because the stuff that he showed up in was so strong on its own or if I would love to see him reappear again in new episodes even more twisted and sinister. I will when I accumulate more funds try to donate to this cause. I certainly want to buy/see the finished documentary, and I will most definitely be telling people about it. I can't wait to see you Tara and John at Bronycon! :) Keep your eyes peeled for my Discord shuffling!
