Chris Garcia’s and Linda Wenzelburger’s Indiegogo appeal to fund 5 Cons – A Fandom Documentary Series cracked the $4,000 level today.
Fans flocked to get their names in the credits by making incentive donations. Chris now has three assistant producers ($500) and 20 associate producers ($100). He should never lack someone to send for a six-pack of Pibb Extra.
Already well past the initial $3,500 target, the donations keep on coming. The Indiegogo campaign ends Thursday.
5 Cons will present the world of sf fandom through the lens of five conventions in the US and Great Britain — the Nova Albion Steampunk Exhibition, ConQuest in Kansas City (where Chris will be a Guest of Honor), Westercon 66, LoneStarCon 3 (the Worldcon, in San Antonio) and the World Fantasy Convention in Brighton.
