A feature length documentary about the unofficial fan convention for aficionados of the show “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.”

In the summer of 2012 a rapidly growing adult fanbase will gather to celebrate the TV show "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic". 

This feature length documentary will follow several individual journeys that converge at the convention. We'll find out who the fans are and what is driving this phenomenon.

What will the funds be used for? The short answer is quality. This program will be shot with broadcast quality equipment and crewed by professional camera operators, sound mixers and editors who do this for a living.

Thank you for your support! Please help spread the word to make this project possible.

For the documentary: Executive producers are Tara Strong, Lauren Faust, John de Lancie and Michael Brockhoff. Director is Laurent Malaquais and Consulting Producer is Andrew Brockert.

BronyCon and related media belong exclusively to BronyCon. My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and related media belong exclusively to Hasbro, Inc. and Studio B/DHX Media Ltd.

FAQ

  • Yes, please add $10 to your pledge and it will cover the postage to ship all your reward items.

  • Sorry, no. The cost of mastering, burning and packaging two different professional DVD's is prohibitive. The good news is that if you want you can download the digital copy and burn a standard DVD for your own personal use.

  • We are very genuine about producing a first class documentary that the Brony community can be proud of. As broadcast professionals, the projects we produce all the time have budgets well over $60K. A full length doc like this commissioned from a network would have a budget of about $400K. Every penny of the money raised and perhaps even more from our own pockets will be spent on the production and rewards for the backers. We're calling in huge favors from professional crew members and asking them to work for a fraction of their regular rates. We also have some exciting ideas for how to make the doc even better should we raise more than the $60K.
