A fan group calling themselves Synthesized Reality Productions (SRP) has launched a Kickstarter in hopes to crowdfund an upcoming convention concert at Pacific Media Expo in Los Angles, California this coming November.
Members of SRP include staff from the Vocalekt Visions 3D Concert Group, whose 2012 concert tour included fan concerts at Anime Los Angeles, Pacific Media Expo, and Anime on Display. Previous concerts were held using rental gear which were challenging for both the concert staff, who is unable to practice, test, and optimize for the hardware they will be using, and the conventions that host them, many lacking hardware themselves.
This Kickstarter follows an unsuccessful bid earlier in the year to raise $50,000 for a full professional setup that included new projectors, screens, and light rigging. SRP seems to have lowered the bar from Vocalekt’s first attempt and set their primary goal as a new projector, with the rest of the equipment and associated costs being relegated to stretch goals.
Rewards tiers include social media shoutouts, phone charms of the group’s mascot, and of course DVDs of the concert. Additional rewards tier include CDs and/or artwork from the likes of MystSaphyr, NeutrinoP, Wolf Neve, and EmpathP, Avanna’s designer and producer of Fables of Farewell.
The highest tiers include all of the above as well as original song commissions where you can help craft a song to be featured in the concert. Check out the Kickstarter page for full details.
