See what happens Behind the Diamond Curtain during MineCon 2012 at Disneyland Paris. Own a piece of the Minecraft Convention experience

About this project

Last year I was hired by Mojang to take video cameras behind the scenes at MineCon in Las Vegas and show the fans that could not attend what it was like so they could all enjoy a piece of MineCon. This year I was about to do the same thing...

But the videos this year would be even better if the community got involved so I'm bringing it to the greatest community on the internet... the Minecraft community! 

Another reason I thought it would be great to have this project on Kickstarter is so that people can own something physical from MineCon who didn't attend. Watching videos on YouTube is nice, but having a DVD or Blu-ray is something very special that many people want!

What makes this project unique is that I've been given special permission that no one else has been granted.

The Project

I will go behind the diamond curtain with the guys who make Minecraft during MineCon 2012 in Paris at Disneyland and bring you behind the scenes videos like you have never seen before!

We will make daily videos (2 days before MineCon and 2 days during MineCon about 3-5 minutes each) at MineCon 2012 Europe featuring many of the things you can’t get access to see. The videos will be posted on YouTube.

Begins: November 22nd
Ends: November 25th

After Minecon, I will make a DVD and Blu-ray of the videos that were uploaded to YouTube and add in some special features and videos that will not be online! The goal is to have over an hour worth of videos and content on the DVD/Blu-ray!!!

I want to offer an experience you are going to love. I want the community to be able to take home a piece of the MineCon experience even if they don't have a chance to attend... and for everyone that does attend, they will get to experience something they might not have seen while at Minecon 2012.

The Community

Once you are a backer of this project you will get access to the backer only updates which will include surveys and collaboration posts where I will be planning out the content for the videos. I am also inviting some special guests (you may know them from their videos on YouTube) to also contribute to planning the videos!

If for some reason you end up not being able to be backer... it's ok... you can still help!!! Just spread the word about this project so it gets funded and then you will get to enjoy seeing the videos on YouTube for free!

The Money

Money is always a delicate subject, so I'll just be straight up blunt about it so it is ultra clear... making videos costs money.

If you want to see the budget broken down here is a link to the current one:

I've budgeted out the costs to get a minimal team out to Minecon that will be able to deliver some amazing videos for the Minecraft community. As the budget is right now, I'm not taking any money at all as payment... I just want to make amazing videos for all Minecraft fans to enjoy!

Some videos from last year

This year we want to make bigger and better videos!!! Please take a look at the different pledge options and pick yours!
