What's this all about?
Through Beyond The Brick, co-hosts Joshua Hanlon and Matthew Kay conduct weekly video interviews with LEGO fans from across the United States and around the world. Joshua and Matthew have decided to step out from behind the computer screen and into the real world to bring you coverage from BrickCon 2015!
Conventions like BrickCon allow LEGO fans to gather in one location for a weekend to share their passion for the brick.
All of the video on the DVD will only be available through our Kickstarter project. It will not be posted on the Beyond the Brick YouTube page.
Everyone who supports the project at the $30 level or above will receive a digital download of the DVD content in addition to the DVD itself.
Whether you attend BrickCon 2015 in person or not, this Kickstarter project is for you!

Risks and challenges
Our biggest challenge will be interviewing as many incredible builders and capturing as much video of the event as we can.
If we do a good job getting lots of video, we'll then have the challenge of editing everything into something fantastic for you to watch! This part is sure to require a lot of coffee.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
