About

Come share our experience as we bring the creative and artistic feeling you get from a project you find at Burning Man mixed with the rabid fandom of Doctor Who! More than bringing the show to life, the value for us is in creating an unforgettable experience for all involved. The bottom line is we want to wow people!  

Over the years in Black Rock City, our Tardis has become a mutant vehicle, it has been traced in el-wire, is equipped with lit signs and windows, has an under the car glow kit, stands ten feet tall, and makes the Tardis sound as the walls turn! You'll also hear the on board sound system blasting out Doctor Who remixes in our daily treks around the playa. How exactly do we plan to out do a driving, spinning, glowing, music blasting Tardis?...The Pandorica!

The Pandorica is an 8ft by 8ft stone cube featured in the episode "The Pandorica Opens" from Doctor Who. Our completed Pandorica will feature green lit intricate carvings, and the flick of a sonic screwdriver will activate and open this mysterious box. From Doctor Who dance parties to imprisoning bad burners, the Pandorica is shaping up to amaze all its visitors in Black Rock City!  

The support you bring to this project will go towards:  

Rehabbing the Tardis  

  • Wood replacement  
  • El-wire replacement  
  • New motor to turn the walls  

Building the Pandorica  

  • The main base of construction will be 2x4s and finished plywood 
  • Prison seat requires more detailed wood working and Led lights  
  • Interior requires Led lights and el-wire  
  • Four 6ft circles of Plexiglas to backlight wood carvings  
  • Separate color paints for interior and exterior
  • Additional sound equipment
  • Two Servo motors to open doors

Transporting both projects from Saint Louis, MO to Black Rock City, NV  

  • Additional weight, more required room, and a portion for fuel for transport from Saint Louis MO
Rewards

We have designed the our rewards to help bring a visual memory to all of our backers. The picture for the postcards we be taken at Burning Man. We will update all of our backers with time and location when camp placement is released.

Whovian Burner!!!
Whovian Burner!!!
 Above is the image we are using for all of our Whovian Burner rewards. The photo albums in the $500 and up rewards and designed for backers attending the burn  and will include pictures of you and the projects. These can be shot after the group picture or anytime you can drop by. If you wanted to donate at these levels but can not attend we will work extra hard to put a personal touch to your photo album. The $1000 dollar level is also designed for a backer attending Burning Man. You will receive your own Sonic Screwdriver which you can use to open the Pandorica and start the evenings Doctor Who dance party. Again, if you are not attending we mail your Sonic Screwdriver with your other rewards and you can name someone else to open the party if you like. The Time Lord is our boldest reward and will hopefully take us to over funding. There are several choices in delivery of this reward. It can be picked up in St.Louis , dropped of in Black Rock City, or dropped off on route to Black Rock City. If interested please ask I can send you the two route options. I will bring you your very own Tardis and teach you how to assemble it as I set it up for you. 

Updates

As we are a passionate bunch, we will be bringing you detailed updates about all our progress as often as we can. Thank you all so much for your support!  

Risks and challenges

Challenges with the Tardis can be summarized with one word, testing.
We have to test the new motor that turns the walls, and we have to test the driving in new conditions to ensure the balance of the vehicle and the safety of the Doctor. We have already made time to construct and test the Tardis to ensure it's perfect for gate opening!

The main challenge with the Pandorica is bringing all of our ideas to life as perfect as possible. We have already addressed this by bringing more talent to the table to support our team, which includes more than 15 years of carpentry experience.

We fear constructing the Pandorica may cause all the enemies of the Doctor to converge upon Black Rock City! We are also concerned that just seeing the Pandorica may cause the heads of burners to explode with excitement! We have decided that these are risks we just have to deal with!
