About

Ever been on the floor of your favorite convention and you get a text from a friend saying "Hey you gotta check out this booth!!!" and just cant find it? Having trouble with finding a schedule for a panel you want to see? Huge Firefly fan, and you wanted to get that picture with some of the actors, but were either too late, or couldn't find the right photo area? This is exactly why we designed the Con Centric app. We needed answers to all these questions and more. We've all had that moment at a Convention; you've had no idea where to go or who was there. Hoping against hope you hop on your phone begging their wifi to work long enough to get you on their website in order to hunt around to find their panel schedule and a list of exhibitors. Had you downloaded Con Centric, this situation could've been avoided. Con Centric is designed to update panel schedules as they're amended, It's also designed to update exhibitor lists within context of the convention floor so you know not only who is there but where they are as well. Don't worry independent artists, writers and creators of all things nerdy, we didn't forget about you either. With the Con Centric app, we are going to give YOU the opportunity to have just as much exposure as the major publishers. With several key features being developed, we are going to help your talents become a center of the convention too. It's also designed to allow user to check into a convention. Letting you know who else is ready to amp the fun factor by about a million. Also included are art and photo contests and scavenger hunt opportunities. Who knows, If you talk to Robert Downey Jr. about getting some schwarma with Ashley Johnson you may have just won a scavenger hunt and made your dreams come true. All by using Con Centric.

Now's your chance to make our dream come true. This idea can not go live on a steady diet of rainbows dipped in hope. This free app will only happen when you donate now. We'd like you to, because we think it's great and when you donate, we'll think you're great too.

Pros: 

Con Centric will eliminate appearance cancelations due to double bookings. Now all promotors will have one place to find who's available.

We know how hectic the con circuit is for you Agents and our goal is to help you alleviate some of that stress. With the Pro Access for Con Centric you will be able to keep track of all you clients and their appearances. Save reminders in the schedule of your phone and personalize them to your needs. 

Celebrities will no longer have to type in every individual con they are attending with all the appropriate links for their fans. You Con Centric profile will give your hard core fans your entire years itinerary and changes as you make them. 

Artist bios for your Con Centric profile helps give new comers a leg up to be found by the public and published Comic Book professional's fans will have easy schedule accessibility for all their con appearances & signings.

Our unique approach to Scavenger Hunts will send fans to every corner of the convention and introduce them to new artists, writers, creators, celebrities, comic book merchants, toy vendors, collectors, games, panels, and the full spectrum of nerd awesome that cons have to offer. This will be an invaluable marketing tool for all types of vendors and con pros at cons everywhere.  

We will also have other unique and fun interactive ways to bring the fans and vendors together, but we won't tell you all about them here........those will be in the Con Centric app. 

Cons: 

Sure, there are lots of cons. Even multiple cons per weekend now. We will do our best to supply our Con Centric app to all your favorite cons out there. 

What? These are not the "cons" you're looking for?

The fact that the Con Centric app is not out yet is it's biggest con, but you can help us with that by donating to this Kickstarter. We have some great incentives, but also don't want to break your bank. So we have also included a $1 donation for those of you that would have paid that to use it because you can't wait to start your Con Centric Profile. 

We are asking for $50,000 to get this baby going, but their is no limit set for lots of reasons........because the more this KICKSTARTER raises the more of our ideas will be implemented sooner and we know that you have lots of ideas for the capabilities and workings of Con Centric.........We can build it. We have the technology. We have the capability to make the world's first comic con app. Con Centric can be that app. Con life better than it was before. Better. Stronger. Faster. 

Special thanks to Batt Rivera for his dedication, friendship, art & multiple skills, and knowledge. Special thanks to Josh Calvert for his dedication, friendship, words, and knowledge. Special thanks to Robert Armstrong of "Alternate Angles" for the music used in our Kickstarter video and his friendship. 

HUGE THANK YOU to all of our Family and Friends for your pledges and for SHARING this Con Centric Kickstarter.

 It's Taco Tuesday and we have an all new incentive to share with you.

We give you the Con Centric Taco Tshirt for a $20.00 Pledge. Proudly show off your nerdom by wearing this away team safe Tshirt at your next Comic Con.

Meet our spokesperson Alaina Huffman, freshly dead from Supernatural, that we caught up with at SDCC after running around like a mad man trying to find the Arcana booth. Luckily she text me her location because she was not announced as a guest on any social media that I had seen. So, when I told Alaina what we were up to and what our Con Centric app would do for her as a professional..... She was ready for it now. Here is what she had to say. 

 We told you to check out this Kickstarter often. Not only are we announcing our Taco Tshirts today, but we are also announcing one of our first one time incentives as well. 

Jon Schnepp should need no introduction, but to me he is the King of Kinkstarter. He has many successful crowd funding campaigns, but you may know his work with the crazy heavy metal band everybody loves.....Metalocalypse!!!!  Jon has given us 3 extremely rare Dark Horse Comics of Deathklok signed by him personally and a really cool Nathan figure. See what he had to say from a Professional Nerds point of view about the world's first personal organizer for all things Comic Con and go help him with finishing funds for the documentary The Death of "Superman Lives" What Happened? here: http://supportsupermanlives.com

 This last weekend was the Big Taco of the industry. San Diego Comic-Con International is the summer mecca for every Comic Con professional and the envy of every Nerd. This year was particularly busy and confusing. As I had a difficult time locating all of my friends tables, booths, panels, signings, and even just finding them on the floor was extra chaotic this year, but once I did it was interesting to hear the pros opinions on the Con Centric app.

Let's start with Thanos himself. Damion Poitier has Geek Cred that goes back to before Joss Whedon did The Avengers and his iMDb is full of Nerdy movies and tv that will make you squeeee.......

 Tim Bradstreet is a well known artist and professional in the comic con industry that we are always excited to see. That being said we could not find him and was very disapointed that he was not at our yearly mecca. Until we stumbled upon him on the con floor. Here is what he had to say about our Con Centric app and you are damn right.......we needed our own app to find Tim Bradstreet and need your help to make that happen. Then you can have no trouble finding Tim at a convention near you. 

Joe Weems V has worked with so many greats and for us it's about those dark lines of his. We love his work and are always curious about what commissions he is drawing up at a comic con. Just picked up a bad ass Predator that blew my mind for my personal collection.......not for this Kickstarter. Sorry people. However, we just might have something to announce next week in our incentives from Joe Weems V? Watch this video and find out how the Con Centric app could have helped us, you, Joe, and Weems V Fans....."Do it!"

Jeff Blake is a colorist working with many of the greats in the comic con world. He is constantly traveling and woking the con industry; and his fan base is growing every year. Like all the pros in the scene he needs something to help his fans find out where he will be and something to help him stay personally organized through out his year. Con Centric is going to be helping him with that and we agree with everything he as to say. Thanks for the support. Watch this video to see how Con Centric can help you with your con scheduling. 

Thank you my friends for your kind words and endorsements. It means a lot to us that so many Comic Con Professionals are getting behind our product and we can't wait to make this app for you and your fans while introducing you to all new fans at the same time. Not too mention simplifying your life with one simple app and one simple tap. 

Con Centric is making YOU the center of the convention! 

Anyone who pledges $10 or more will become apart of our Hall of Fame. We will immortalize your name in our Hall of Fame and our head twit will personally tweet you 140 characters of thank you and love. 

Look at this great Con Centric collection of art you get for your $25 pledge. We are going to ship you these 4 prints by Daniel Vest, Kip Mussatt, Wes Huffor, and Craig Blake "Old School".

This Tuesday tune into SyFy for Face Off and watch Cig Neutron compete in the coolest makeup artistry television show around. Not only did he win last week, but he was also voted Fan Favorite. He has long been a long time favorite of ours and we always look forward to see what he will pull off at the next Con. That's exactly what Con Centric is for. You couldn't find his booth in San Diego, right? I know I had a hard time finding him, but he goes to lots of conventions with his unique style. That's why Con Centric wants to make sure you know what other events and cons he will be appearing at with one simple app and one simple tap. Listen to Cig Neutron himself talk about how much he loves Con Centric.

Con Centric is giving some special incentives this week from the world of Comic Cons. Check back daily for new incentives. Like art and comic books from Tim Bradstreet, Jeff Balke, and Sandy King Carpenter. 

 Take the dare by The Joker and pledge $15 for a Taco!

Risks and challenges

One of the major challenges we'll face will be keeping this app free for fans. We are wholeheartedly dedicated to this. We don't think the fan should have to buy in on a per download basis to access what they need to know. Rather, our goal is to charge a nominal fee to the professionals who use the app as a tool to spread their word about their professional appearances.

The other major challenge is to get the big convention companies to discover the app. Once they find that they can use Con Centric as a one stop outlet to access their core demographic, we're confident it will gain publicity for it's ease of use and accessibility factor; adding more
streams of revenue that all but assures Con Centric will remain free and expand on its success.
