TheFandom is a documentary feature film! It provides a real life look into the furry community as told by our own artists and creators. We completed part one, a YouTube mini-series prequel. This Kickstarter is to fund part two which will be released as a feature film!

 Check out the mini-series (part one) below!

The Feature Film

For the film, we want to take an in-depth look at the early history of the fandom and explore our origins as the first internet subculture. We will focus on the individuals who helped to start our first conventions, meetups and facilitate artistic expression. Then, we will examine where we are headed as a community today. As furries ourselves we would like to show the world what our community is really about!  

Subjects that we will address:

 The furry fandom is, perhaps, the first subculture to rise with the internet. With its origins in the late '70s, furry grew out of the science-fiction communities, debuting the first furry convention in 1989. But while the internet provided a means of uniting this budding community, it also became a breeding ground for misconceptions about furry identity. 

This film will give you a glimpse of what makes the furry fandom so special to those who call themselves "furry". By interviewing the individuals who pioneered the fandom, we will explore this unusual community from the ground up, uncovering the passion, creativity, and the drive the inspires its members. We hope you join us on this journey! 

 The Cast (So Far)

These are just some amazing folks lined up to participate in the film, with more to be revealed shortly!

 Our cast is made up of some of the artists, creators and personalities that really drive our community forward.

FAQ

Dispatch date?

While the campaign proceeds and as we approach our target, we hope to start production in April after Kickstarter funding completes. We shouldn't have any delays because we'll be keeping an organized pipeline from past project experience. We'll also be keeping everyone fully up to date primarily on my Twitter (http://twitter.com/AshCoyote) and in journal posts via Kickstarter and our website http://thefandomfilm.com.

Payments? 

Payments are due at the end of the campaign, and will be charged immediately with a week to verify your payment. Payments that fail at the end of the Kickstarter will lose out on any stretch goal rewards. By backing you understand to budget yourself for the end of the campaign.

When can I send my address? 

If the Kickstarter is successfully funded, I'll be sending out a survey to all the backers to collect any information in regards to your shipping address. Please ensure you write it in the correct format and use your correct legal name.

Risks and challenges

Outside of Kickstarter I'm a professional film director and operate an self employed business. I'll be posting Twitter updates via my account ensuring all communications from backers are taken care of immediately, and any issues have been resolved for both parties.

- Fulfilment
Rewards will be shipped out or be delivered digitally when the film is completed and locked in its cut. I will ship all physical items by hand at head quarters.

- Blu-ray
Blu-ray's ETA dispatched within 3 months of completion, this may cause a delay with any backers reward tier which may include this item. We will ship the Blu-ray separate to ensure no delays for backers waiting on other items.
