tank9 & Mary Nine Otakon 2012 Patrons! Update #1
You can help us get to Otakon 2012 to make these videos:
- Otakon 2012 Dance Video: First, I must say, cosplayers are amazing! Just looking as their epic costumes should be reason enough to pay each one of them a dollar. Does anyone really do that? So we want to make a video showcasing talented cosplayers. Not only that, we have them do a little dance to show off their costumes. We owe cosplayers our thanks by promoting their hard work. You can do that by becoming our Kickstarter Backer. Becoming a Backer means you support hard working musicians, artists, Etsy Fashion Designers, and the visibility of Otakon 2012 around the world!
- Otakon 2012 Documentary Video: As approved press members for Otakon 2012, Mary Nine & tank9 will be your hosts. We cover what we love about Otakon 2012. There are so many programs to attend, events, shows, vendors, Fashion Designers, attendees, panels, and so much more behind the scenes footage that only press can obtain! We'd like to show it to you! Video example below!
Most recently we collaborated with cellist musician Kanon Wakeshima and Gothic Punk Lolita Fashion designer h. Naoto to create the tank9 Sakura Con 2012 Documentary. The Otakon 2012 Documentary will be made similar to our tank9 Sakura Con 2012 Documentary, seen above.
Previous tank9 Video Projects
tank9 produces dance videos that have inspired many fans since "Anime Expo 2009 Dance to Industrial," interviewed and written about on Liz Ohanesian's LA Weekly Blog. The video "Angry Industrial Dancer in Little Saigon," made it's way to Dave Hughes' Off The Air - Dance TV show on Adult Swim. Mary Nine soon joined tank9 in making Dance & Documentary videos at conventions. Later, we teamed up with author and travel TV show host La Carmina, to help raise donations for Japan's One Year Anniversary of The Tsunami/Earthquake Disaster. Now with our growing fan base, our appearances at conventions are requested through out the world, by fans that want to participate in tank9 dance videos.
Your funds will cover two round trip plane tickets that fluctuate between $800-1000. We will depart from Seattle, Washington and arrive at Baltimore, Maryland. Then take the MTA Light Rail System to Otakon 2012 ($3.20 Round Trip x 2). To save on accommodation costs, Mary and I are sharing a hotel room with creative Steadicam operator, Aksonl and 2 other videographers. At an estimated $280 for three nights, that's not a bad deal. Otakon 2012 approved tank9 & Mary Nine for press passes to cover in depth convention events and save on admittance fees. We will arrive on July 26th and leave on the 30th of July.
Production time will be under a week, after the convention, for the Otakon 2012 Cosplay Dance video, and the Otakon 2012 Documentary video will be released once we receive publicity approval by appropriate person(s) for their creative works.
What your pledges will do is much more than you think! Your pledges support everyone involved and everything that matter to us! We want Otakon to become more visible in the world! Which in turn will support the creative works of fans and cosplayers that all gather there. Opportunities will arise for attendees to dance and be on film, musicians will proliferate their love of music, artist Tess Richards, known as AkumoHyoukyo on DeviantART, showcase Etsy Fashion Designers items, and the attendees of Otakon 2012 will have their chance to voice their opinions in our documentary! Everything made possible from Kickstarter and YOU! We love you!
