Title: Veronica Mars Event in Gaslamp Friday 7:30pm July 19, 2013
Post by: Jim Watari on April 10, 2013, 09:29:07 PM
From the Kick starter e-mail update #20

Hi again.
Yesterday I promised we'd have more specifics about our plans for San Diego Comic Con. Here's what I know so far:
We'll definitely be there in July. We're still working with the organizers to figure out if we'll be holding an official, scheduled panel as part of ComicCon. I'll let you know when I hear more about that, but either way, you'll be able to meet us for autograph signings at the Warner Bros. booth.
We're throwing our own private event, just for our fans. After yesterday's update, a lot of you asked whether our SDCC event would be open to people who weren't able to get passes for ComicCon itself. And happily, the answer is ABSOLUTELY. Even if we have an official panel at SDCC, we're planning to pull out all the stops for our own exclusive event, so this is the one you'll want to be at.
The Veronica Mars Fan Event (don't worry, we'll come up with a better name for it) will happen on July 19, 2013 at 7:30 PM, in what I understand to be an intimate theatrical venue in the Gaslamp District, near the Convention Center.
I'll be there, along with as many of our cast members as I can bring along, and we'll be doing an exclusive Q & A session. And yes, since you're wondering: we will be debuting some exclusive footage from the movie, and you will be the first to see it. (Except for me and our editors, obviously.) Doors will open at 7, and admission will be first-come, first-served... unless you want to reserve a spot now.
For those of you that do, we're going to be adding a few Comic Con related reward options tomorrow (Thursday) at exactly 1:00 pm EST.
The SDCC Fan Package guarantees you a single reserved seat for the Fan Event, in case you want to roll up fashionably late without waiting in line, and the SDCC VIP Package guarantees you a reserved seat up front at the Fan Event and some face time with me and the cast during a brief invite-only Meet & Greet event the same day.
(For those of you who can't make it to San Diego, don't worry: we'll also be recording the entire event so that all of our backers get to see it.)
Finally, I promised that we'd have some news for Logan fans. We will, I promise. We're finalizing the details with Jason now. What I can tell you tonight is that if you're a Logan fan (or a Jason fan), you'll want to look for another Backer Update tomorrow morning. In addition to the Comic Con rewards, we'll be announcing one more reward option that will also be available tomorrow starting at 1:00 pm EST.
I think that's enough excitement for one day. 48 hours to go, gang.
Let's finish this out right.

Sounds pretty amazing for fans of the show!  I never watched it, but very cool the way this is all unfolding.

good way to continue the kickstarter momentum. over $5 mil now and will probably get another nice bump when they announce the SDCC related options. might contribute for a guaranteed seat.

I am so excited for this! Definitely will be keeping my eye out for the donation option today - I hope it's not ridiculous because I really want a spot and my friend who didn't get a Comic-con ticket might fly in just for the party if she can get one.

I agree, this sounds great for fans of the show! This project and the Enterprise Bridge Restoration project are both examples to me of how fans are now able to make a direct difference in supporting the entertainment they want to see.

I'm so happy for all of the VM fans!

I don't think it'll be that crazy, that's my hope anyway. I don't think it'll be $20 but I could see it being maybe $100 or so. I don't think it'll be the same as the $1,000 or higher perks.

Oh, I did not read my own post closely enough, looks like  at least two different packages for SDCC, I'm sure the VIP one will be expensive :D

I'm hoping all the ticket donation options don't disappear ridiculously fast. Also, I wish you could get two seats, one for you and a guest, instead of just one. Although, if a guaranteed seat is $100 I'll probably skip it, since Nerd HQ tickets were only about $20 a piece last year. But whatever, I can't believe Veronica Mars is at 2013'sComic-con! So awesome.

Then there's Nerd HQ pre-buying anxiety, then comic-con line anxiety, exclusives availability anxiety, autograph line anxiety...anxiety of having anxiety at comic-con...  :o

Latest VM update e-mail

Last night, I encouraged Logan fans to keep an eye on this morning's Backer Updates for details about an additional reward option we'll be adding today at 1 pm EST. I'll elaborate, but first I thought you might want to hear the basics from Jason himself.
http://youtu.be/uZnmktf6eys
I'm just glad he was willing to record this video of his own free will. It was either this, or sending out ransom photos showing Jason tied to a chair in the basement until we break the 87,143 backer record.
I'm kidding, of course. Mostly.
Jason's not kidding, though. At 1 pm EST, we'll be adding a limited number of rewards that I think of as The Logan Lover's Package, which gets you all of the normal perks of pledging $100, plus a limited edition, signed headshot from Jason with a personalized message just for you. Or, if you prefer, for the Logan fan of your choice. You'll get to let Jason know if you've got any specific requests before he starts writing.
And speaking of writing, this script isn't going to revise itself. Back to work for me.
Don't forget to check the Kickstarter page promptly at 1:00 pm EST, when we'll add both the Jason and Comic Con reward options.

$150 is a bit steep. I nabbed one, but I might not keep it.

Post by: Jim Watari on April 11, 2013, 10:09:18 AM

Well that was fast , all SDCC, Logan lovers and SDCC VIP packages are gone.

There were 100 SDCC $150, 100 Logan lovers $150 and 20 SDCC VIP $450 packages

At least I won't be lining up for a seat :D

I was already at $100 , so bumping it $50 was not too bad :D

Post by: PlanningMackem on April 11, 2013, 10:11:22 AM
I managed to get one (Fan Package, not VIP), woo! Who else is going?

I'd decided I could stretch to £100 (so around $150) for a ticket, and since it also includes the stuff I'd already pledged $100 for, I'm happy enough.

Post by: queenofsarab on April 11, 2013, 10:12:58 AM
I managed to get one, but looks like they sold out immediately! Glad I got a reserved seat, can't even imagine what the line is going to be like. I had already donated $25 so really it was just $125... I'm already spending so much on Comic-con it seemed pretty reasonable :)
Title: Re: Veronica Mars Event in Gaslamp Friday 7:30pm July 19, 2013
Post by: Eckie on April 11, 2013, 10:14:15 AM
Yeah, I was at the $50 level before, so $100 more for me. Well, I have 33 hours to think about it! If I don't keep it, I'll post here when I throw it back, so hopefully someone who didn't get one can nab it.

Post by: PlanningMackem on April 11, 2013, 10:28:52 AM
I set up a second account thinking that the SDCC thing would be a separate reward to the other stuff, and I was logged into it. So I backed a-fresh and now I have to go back into my original account and drop down to $1 (I'm not mean enough to take away one of their precious backers when they've got a record to break!!)

Still, as buyers stress goes, that wasn't so bad.

Post by: DaveG on April 11, 2013, 11:02:01 AM
I managed to get a VIP package and didn't even realize how few of those there were.  I guess all the discipline that goes into getting SDCC tickets helped pay off here. 

The price was a little steep, but the chance for a meet and greet with Rob and the cast couldn't be passed up.  The way I look at it, the extra money I pledged was about equivalent to what I spend per night for a hotel room and I'll probably spend more time at this event then I spend in my hotel room that night.

The latest e-mail with more SDCC packages

Gang,
Hard to believe, but it's almost over. We've got 24 hours left until our Kickstarter campaign ends. Yesterday we got 2,400 new backers. Today, we've gotten 3,600. Tomorrow, we only need about 5,000 more to break the all-time record for most backers.
That's less than 220 backers an hour. We can do this.
In other news, we may have underestimated the level of interest you'd have in the new rewards we offered this morning, since all of the SDCC and Logan packages disappeared in under 10 minutes. If you were hoping for one of those, good news: we'll be able to offer another (final) round tomorrow.
Also, many of you asked if there was an option to get both Jason's personalized signature and the signed poster. Good news there, too. We'll be adding a limited number of Logan Lover's Deluxe packages for $250, which will include both the signed cast poster and the personalized headshot from Jason. Ask and ye shall receive.
For those of you keeping score at home, that means we'll be adding the following rewards tomorrow, April 12, at 1:00 pm EST.
COMIC CON REWARDS
50 SDCC Fan Packages ($150)
20 SDCC VIP Packages ($450)
PREMIERE TICKETS
50 pairs of tickets to the LA Premiere ($750)
50 pairs of tickets to the NYC Premiere ($750)
LOGAN LOVERS
50 Logan Lover's Packages ($150)
100 Logan Lover's Deluxe Packages ($250)
If you're determined to get one of these, you might want to set an alarm. I don't expect them to last long, and with the campaign ending tomorrow night, this will be your last chance.
Since I'll be over at the Dog and Duck Pub tomorrow night, this will also be one of the last updates I send before the campaign ends. I've said this a lot this week, but I want to say it one more time before this ends:
Thank you. For everything.
Whether we break this final record or not, Kristen and I could not be more amazed, thrilled or grateful. We've always known that we have the best fans in the world. Now we're pretty sure everyone else will know it too.
I'll let Kristen have the last word for tonight:
http://youtu.be/ct303jG-FaI
LoVe and Gratitude,
Rob and Kristen

I would guess that these extra rewards will go even faster than last night's did - I mean, apart from the fact there's half as many of the Fan Packages, now people know what they're getting and how much it costs and have time to plan ahead. Yesterday it was "wait and see" and so many people weren't sure where to look, didn't realise they'd potentially have to give up their other rewards, etc. I saw a lot of people who didn't want to give up their $200 signed poster to drop back down to $150 and couldn't afford $450 to get everything, so people were taking longer to make decisions.

Yeah it was a little confusing. I initially thought any package would have all of the lower package items, which it true most of the time. Well I got the Fan SDCC package and it will be interesting to see how large this venue is going to be. 190 reserved seats then it a free for all for the rest. I'm glad I won't have to line up all day :D

The lastest update:

Dear Backers,
Don't worry, I'm still alive. It's been much longer since my last update than I had hoped, but I promise: you haven't missed anything exciting. As we're discovering, running a Kickstarter campaign with 91,000+ backers is almost as much work as making a movie. (Maybe more. It depends on who you ask.)
The good news, for both the Kickstarter and our movie, is that things are starting to speed up.
On the Kickstarter side, we're working through the many details involved in producing and shipping all of the rewards, because we want to get your stickers and t-shirts in your hands as soon as possible. (That still could mean June or July, but we're going as fast as we can.) We will be sending out a survey in the next few weeks to ask for your t-shirt preferences, shipping address, and any other details we'll need to get your rewards out to you.
(Don't worry, you haven't missed the survey. It's coming soon!)
On the movie side, a million things are happening at once. (Maybe more. It depends on who you ask.)
A few highlights:
The response to the script from the studio, and perhaps more important, from Kristen, has been incredibly positive. And as you might have read, one of our amazing writers from the series — Diane Ruggiero — just spent a few weeks working with me to finish it up.
As far as casting goes, we're still in negotiations, so I can't officially announce anything yet. But I can make two promises: first, we're working furiously on it, and second, when new cast members are confirmed, you'll be the first to hear about it. Bonus tease: I'm really excited about some of the cameos we're hoping to land. If all goes well, I'll be able to share more soon.
And finally, location. I would have sent an update earlier this week, but we were so close to making a final decision that I wanted to wait, because there's a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT, and I wanted you to hear it first. This morning, I got final approval on our shooting location.
Thanks to you, the Veronica Mars movie will be shot in Los Angeles!

From the beginning of this project, we always hoped we'd be able to shoot in Southern California. That said, it's not the cheapest place to shoot a movie. If we had only raised the $2 million we set as our original Kickstarter target, we'd have been forced to choose between fewer shooting days in Southern California, or more shooting days somewhere less expensive. Thanks to you, we didn't have to compromise.
Shooting in Los Angeles is great news, for many reasons.
For starters, it gives us the best possible look for the movie. If it came down to it, we could have re-created Neptune somewhere else, but nowhere else would have looked quite like Southern California.
Even more important, shooting in LA gives us the best possible chance to bring back our original cast and arrange some amazing cameo appearances, since it requires far less time, travel and expense.
On a more personal note, I lived in Los Angeles for 15 years before moving back to my home town of Austin, TX in 2009. So in addition to all of the important movie-making reasons I'm happy we'll be shooting in Los Angeles, I also have several personal reasons.
1) We moved my 8 year old daughter away from her favorite Los Angeles Chinese restaurant three years ago and she hasn't stopped harping about it since. We're going to rent a house for the days we're shooting in Los Angeles. The only requirement is that it must be in said restaurant's delivery radius.
2) We will be able to take my son to Disneyland for his 5th birthday in July. His sister has been lording her trips to Disneyland over him. I heard him say, "Small World this" in the next room the other day.
3) It's never 75 degrees in July in Texas.
4) I plan on wearing jodhpurs and holding a riding crop while directing. Anywhere but Los Angeles, people might question these choices.
5) Yes, I would like to be valet parked, thank you. And yes, I would like my table to be waited on by someone much, much better looking than me.
So, there it is. The Veronica Mars movie will be shooting in Los Angeles, starting in mid-June. At this point, we expect the shoot to last for about a month, and if you're scheduled to join us on set as an extra, you'll want to bring some suntan lotion. (Spoiler: it's going to be nice out.)
One last note: moving forward, I expect to start sending more frequent updates again, since I'll have more news to share. As we get into production, the updates should also be more interesting, unless you find news about contracts, negotiations, and Kickstarter reward fulfillment exciting. If you do, this might be as good as it gets.
And if there are specific things you'd like to hear more about, let me know in the comments. I can't promise I can answer all of your questions, but I'd be interested to know what you're curious about.
Have a great weekend, gang.
Rob

Incredibly excited about this one!

And so glad they released a second batch - I got my time zones all loopy and woke up two hours later than
I should have for the first round.

No chances taken with the second and am grateful for a reserved spot - one less thing to stress about :-)

I just filled out the survey for my package, there wasn't anything about the special Veronica Mars Fan Event during San Diego Comic Con on July 19, 2013

I e-mailed them to see how they are going to handle the passes to the fan event.

I noticed that too. But they've got our names and e-mails, so I figured they might be sending us a separate e-mail with instructions closer to. Please let us know what you hear though!

You'll get a notice of when to start lining up, since you are a backer, it will be sent to the backers first before the general public

Here  is the replay to my e-mail

Hi Jim,
 
We'll provide more details about the Veronica Mars Fan Event at SDCC soon, but Rob has already announced that it will be held on Friday, July 19, 2013 at 7:30 PM, and will happen somewhere in the Gaslamp District, near the Convention Center.

Backers who have reserved seats will get details first, and then we'll provide them to all of our backers, so keep watching Rob's updates for more information!
 
Thank you for contacting us!
 
-The Veronica Mars Team

So I guess they will figure out who we are,  somehow

If you got a ticket through Kickstarter, they sent out an e-mail tonight basically saying "We'll be sending another e-mail", so keep an eye out!

Got my email too, but now it has me worried.  I'm supposed to do the meet and greet, but they mentioned something about it being earlier in the afternoon.  So...I love Veronica Mars and the entire cast, but are they really going to make me pick between a day of panels in Hall H or Ballroom 20 or (what I assume) will be a short meet and greet?  I'm fine missing a panel or two, but "earlier in the afternoon" has me worried.  Once you leave Hall H or Ballroom 20 there's no guarantee of getting back in and definitely not in as good a seat.

Well for me I don't have Friday passes anyway, so no hard decisions for me

I'm in the same boat as DaveG, hope it's not too early since I plan on camping Friday depending on where the panels I like are going to be. If it's during Agents of SHIELD I'm gonna have to pass on the meet and greet :(

Don't forget, VM is doing an onsite panel on Friday as well, so it probably won't be TOO early... But if the offsite starts ay 7:30, I could see M&G being like, 5:30 or something. That's still "afternoon".

That's my attempt at being positive. Did it work?

The most recent update says if you didn't get a ticket with your Kickstarter reward, the line will start at 6am. The event is 7.30pm, so assuming that's not a typo meant to say 6pm, you'd have to be okay with giving up your Friday!

Post by: DaveG on July 01, 2013, 04:00:28 PM
I hope that's a typo.

Anyway, they indicate that the official SDCC panel will be in the morning and that they'll be doing an official signing at the WB booth as well.  The WB signings often occur right after the panel, which would likely be early afternoon.  They might try to sync up the official meet and greet with the WB signing (before or after), which might be why they mentioned early afternoon in yesterday's email.  They also indicated that while Kristen will be at the panel, she won't be available for the WB signing.

Post by: DaveG on July 01, 2013, 04:04:39 PM
Here's the official update

1. We’ll only be there on Friday, July 19. We’d love to be there longer and meet more of you, but we’ll be shooting late the night before, and as soon as we’re done, we’ll turn around and come back to LA for our final day of production.

2. We’ll be doing an official panel! We’re not allowed to share the exact time or location yet, but it will be Friday morning, and you will need to be registered for SDCC to attend. Pretty much the whole gang will be there. Here’s the plan: Rob Thomas, Kristen Bell, Enrico Colantoni, Ryan Hansen, Jason Dohring, Tina Majorino, Krysten Ritter, Chris Lowell, Percy Daggs III andFrancis Capra will join a conversation with Entertainment Weekly’s Jeff Jensen to talk about the movie you made possible. They'll be talking about the production and our amazing fans, showing a little bit of exclusive footage, and taking questions from the audience.

3. We’ll be doing an official signing!
Most of our panelists will stop into the Warner Bros. booth for an official signing session. Please be advised: because of our packed schedule, we aren’t able to bring Kristen to the signing. (Also, she just gave a birth a few months ago. You heard about that, right? We need to make her get some rest.) We’ll provide more details soon, but you’ll be able to get tickets and wristbands for signings in advance.

4. We’ll be holding a fan event in the evening!
An official panel is great, but we owe you more than that. As Rob announced in April, we’ll be holding our own fan event in the evening. In addition to having all of the panelists from the morning session, we’ll show you even more first-look footage, take your questions, and maybe have a few surprises. Be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook during SDCC for real-time updates on what’s happening.

Some backers already have reserved seats or tickets as part of the Kickstarter rewards. For those who don’t, the line for the remaining tickets will start around 6 am. Good news, though: you don’t need to be registered for SDCC to attend our event.

The week of SDCC, we’ll send one more Backer Update with final details, including instructions on where and when to line up. Until then, here’s what we can tell you:

     WHAT:      Veronica Mars SDCC Fan Event
     WHEN:      July 19, 2013, 7:30 PM
     WHERE:    Horton Plaza - Regal Cinema (United Artists 8 )
     WHY:         We’ll be finishing up production, and you made it possible!

Glad we've gotten some more information on - and a venue!!

I got a ticket through Kickstarter but, as it wasn't VIP, I'm hoping it's reserved as
there probably won't be enough time to secure a decent spot in line post-Con.

Really excited about the line-up; superb!

I hope so too - since it seems as if the tickets available on the day are going to be free, I'd at least like to be guaranteed a better seat than the people who get them there and then otherwise I'll be a bit miffed I upped my pledge that high and all I got out of it was the guarantee of a seat, which tbh I probably would have chanced lining up on the morning if I'd known that were the case.

I'd send along an email to the KS campaign stating your concern, just in case. They have been very responsive so far!

Ditto! From memory I dropped down and essentially chose this over the movie poster signed by the cast, so
a good seat might at least justify that choice  :-\

They've generally been very responsive.  I know I emailed my concern about an early afternoon meet and greet detracting from those that want to attend panels during the day.  While they didn't exactly tell me what I wanted to hear, they at least responded within 24 hours and told me I'd get the details by the end of the week.

I think even the non-VIP ticket buyers have reserved seats, no? Here's what it says on the package
Reward: SDCC FAN PACKAGE: You'll receive everything included in the $100 reward (updates, script, shirt, digital download, poster, DVD/BD combo) PLUS you'll enjoy a reserved seat at our special Veronica Mars Fan Event during San Diego Comic Con on July 19, 2013.

It could mean you only get tickets, but I took it as you have seats reserved for you, probably a few rows behind the VIP seats
Title: Re: Veronica Mars Event in Gaslamp Friday 7:30pm July 19, 2013
Post by: DaveG on July 02, 2013, 06:22:52 PM
I would agree, it sounds like you get a reserved seat.  Based on the SDCC packages sold there are 40 VIPs and 152 non-VIPs who should get reserved seats.  That's 192.  I'm not sure if they're holding seats for other media, friends or family, but there may not be many seats left for non-backers.  Any idea how many seats a fair sized theater has?
Title: Re: Veronica Mars Event in Gaslamp Friday 7:30pm July 19, 2013
Post by: Nancy on July 02, 2013, 06:42:44 PM

I was totally on the same page when it was initially offered as an incentive on Kickstarter, but then paranoia set
in and I wondered if they just meant you had a guaranteed spot, not necessarily a reserved seat.

I think some of the larger cinemas can sit up to 450 patrons, but I'm not sure about the size of theatres at
the Horton...

Post by: PlanningMackem on July 03, 2013, 01:40:11 AM
I think I'll email them - definitely doesn't hurt to let them know there are concerns just in case it's something they've overlooked! I've gone through exactly the same train of thought as you, Nancy - "what if I misunderstood?". After posting here yesterday I went back and found the original Kickstarter update where they added that reward level, and it says:

Quote
The SDCC Fan Package guarantees you a single reserved seat for the Fan Event, in case you want to roll up fashionably late without waiting in line, and the SDCC VIP Package guarantees you a reserved seat up front at the Fan Event and some face time with me and the cast during a brief invite-only Meet & Greet event the same day.

To me that implies it'll be VIP in the front, then reserved seats (even if it's just a reserved section rather than a specific seat number) then everybody else. Because otherwise nobody is going to want to risk "rolling up fashionably late" in case they get stuck at the back.

As for the size, I've been trying to look up info but apparently the cinema downsized from 14 screens to 8 in 2012 (not sure if this means they merged some screens therefore making fewer screens with higher capacity, or just closed parts of it down) and the last time I was there was 2011 so I can't even try to guess based on that.

hehe, I did indeed, but it was a "we'll be sending specific information out in the next couple of days" reply. Moot
now that we have official confirmation - huzzah!

Was hoping to dash over post-Whedon panel, but not willing to relinquish my guaranteed spot, so I'll see everyone
there ON TIME!  ;D

I felt the same way, except I won't be skipping the SHIELD panel. I emailed them back asking if I could give the meet & greet to a family member, but still have my name down for the fan event. I wonder how many backers were affected by the early scheduling.

Debating about whether I should email them too. I mean, I like Veronica Mars. But that's such a packed time during the programming schedule that its tough. If I hadn't purchased the opportunity, I wouldn't be skipping the Walking Dead panel for it. I figured the meet and greet would be kinda piggy-backed on just before the event. Now, its like you need to make a whole day of it...

It's a toughy  :-\

I figured the worst thing that could happen is that they say no and the best would be that enough of us can't make it that they change the time on the event. Even though the latter is a long shot because a lot of the cast will be at the meet and greet and everyone's schedules are probably pretty tight.

Exactly what I was thinking.

Well, to make a long shot longer, they responded to my request and said that it would be ok to send a friend to the Meet and Greet and I could still attend the panel.

Very much looking forward to this - I think I'll be able to hit both panels that day. I was hoping they'd do a NerdHQ panel but that doesn't seem likely with how packed their schedule is that day. Kinda wish I would have shelled out the cash for the M&G because I don't want to take my chances with the WB signing but it seems like it's causing problems for the other panels that day. Anyways, it's nice that they put us in a VIP line - I was hoping I didn't have to miss everything at the convention center to guarantee a good spot.

You're definitely allowed to have a camera at the Fan Event -- we won't turn you away. For a few things, we might ask that no one take pictures or video, but for the most part, it should be fine!

Hi, was information posted on where/when we can pick up tickets/wristbands for the Friday night event?

Hope this helps :)

The Official Veronica Mars Fan Event!

WHEN:          7:30 − 9:00 PM

WHERE:        Horton Plaza, Regal Cinema (UA8) http://goo.gl/maps/VIq0x

Official panels are great, but Hall H isn’t exactly intimate, so we’ll be doing another event in the evening. We’ll all be sitting down for a longer chat with E!’s Kristin Dos Santos, and we’ll have a lot more time for your questions. We’ll also show some more first-look footage that wasn’t screened at the morning panel. We might have a few surprises. We’ll definitely have some giveaways. Please note that there will only be about 130 tickets available, and all tickets will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. Also, please note that while there will be a VIP Entrance Line for Backers who pledged for SDCC Kickstarter Rewards, we are not able to have separate Backer and Non-Backer lines for the remaining tickets.

HOW TO GET IN
- The line for tickets will form inside the lobby of the Horton Plaza Regal Cinema.
- The line will not open until 6:00 AM, so please don’t arrive before then.
- Numbered wristbands will be given out, in the order that you arrived, starting between 6:30 and 7:00 AM.
- If you score a wristband, you’ll come back at 6:30 PM and line up in a designated area on the 5th floor of the mall.
