In the summer of 2012 a rapidly growing adult fanbase will gather to celebrate the TV show "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic".
This feature length documentary will follow several individual journeys that converge at the convention. We'll find out who the fans are and what is driving this phenomenon.
What will the funds be used for? The short answer is quality. This program will be shot with broadcast quality equipment and crewed by professional camera operators, sound mixers and editors who do this for a living.
Thank you for your support! Please help spread the word to make this project possible.
For the documentary: Executive producers are Michael Brockhoff and John de Lancie (the voice of Discord on MLP), Director is Laurent Malaquais and Consulting Producer is Andrew Brockert.
BronyCon and related media belong exclusively to BronyCon. My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and related media belong exclusively to Hasbro, Inc. and Studio B/DHX Media Ltd.
BentoBox storyboard artist, Joey Adams, is experiencing the unimaginable.
To be brief, he nearly lost his twin boys over the Christmas holidays, due to a possible genetic illness. Two years ago, he and his wife Ginger, lost their daughter, under similar circumstances. The boys survived, but baby Ian is currently undergoing grueling chemo, while undergoing extensive genetic testing. He will need a bone marrow transplant, and his brother Henry may need one as well. Needless to say, all of the treatments, missed days of work, etc, have caused a huge financial burden for the Adams family (they do not have Motion Picture insurance yet).
Many in the studio expressed a desire to do something for Joey, which led to the idea of reaching out further into our animation community for help.
Along with vintage animation cels and rare development work, some of the artists who have donated work are: Craig McCracken, Lauren Faust, Mo Willems, Gary Baseman, Craig Kellman, Ben Balistreri, Joe Moshier, Alex Kirwan, Adam Burton, Noah Jones, Tom Warburton, Dave Wasson, the entire crew of Phineas and Ferb,
A talented artist named Heidi Jo Gilbert, dismayed to learn that the hit broadway musical, Wicked, may become a live action film, dediced to create a personal plea to the show's creator. Stephen Schwartz was shown this animation test, her way of saying that the film adaptation deserved nothing better than to be in glorious Disney animation. Amazing!!
