Title: King of Con
Post by: YouThinkMeMad on June 18, 2013, 05:57:05 AM
This is a huge party that annually makes various lists for "hottest Con party."

http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/breakneck

You can pledge your way in for $150. This is pretty much the only way to get in since it's invite only.

I think that's just how those websites work, you can't pick different due dates for different rewards.

Same night as the Sherlock party. Not that I would shell out $150/pp for a party. I only wish I could afford that. :)

Post by: YouThinkMeMad on June 19, 2013, 06:51:46 AM
FYI, it now includes a +1. Which means you could easily split this with a friend if you wanted.

Title: Re: King of Con
Post by: YouThinkMeMad on June 20, 2013, 09:24:59 AM
Yes, you're allowed a +1. I have it in an email from the person behind the party and the Indiegogo project.

Does anyone know what happens to the VIP party access if they don't reach their funding goal? 
Title: Re: King of Con
Post by: YouThinkMeMad on June 24, 2013, 10:34:13 AM
I think Indigogo is different then Kickstarter in that they still get the money? I know I've already been charged for my perk. Normally with KS you aren't charged until it ends.

Yeah they charged mine too.  I would think since the party is happening either way and we did contribute, we would still get our invites.  Guess we'll see.

Post by: YouThinkMeMad on June 24, 2013, 10:37:07 AM
The party is happening no matter what. Here's from the FAQ:


What if I don't reach my funding goal?

If your campaign is set up as Flexible Funding, you will be able to keep the funds you raise, even if you don't meet your goal. If your campaign is set up as Fixed Funding, all contributions will be returned to your funders if you do not meet your goal. Flexible Funding campaigns that meet their goal are only charged 4% as our platform fee, whereas campaigns that do not meet their goal are charged 9%.

and from Breakneck:

This campaign will receive all of the funds contributed by Tue 16 Jul 11:59PM PT.


Sounds like they're set up as a flexible.

Post by: Devorah on June 24, 2013, 10:48:11 AM
I am looking forward to this and stressing about it at the same time.  I was following your conversation with Mario on Twitter, and I'm afraid I'm going to be so self-conscious and stick out like a sore thumb.  I am not a skinny Hollywood type by any stretch of the imagination, but I can dress nice and that's all I can do I guess.  I'm sure the open bar will help ease my anxieties :)

Dh and I are seriously considering foregoing the Sherlock party for this. Can anyone confirm the +1? I don't see anything on the website and do is concerned. Barb? Anyone?
Title: Re: King of Con
Post by: battlestar81 on June 26, 2013, 05:01:58 PM
The gentleman who runs the party, elmayimbe, posted on twitter that when you buy the package your name is put on the actual guest list for the event. He is pretty responsive so if you have worries you can always contact him and just verify you are on the list and then just make sure if you have a plus 1 they are with you at the door.
Title: Re: King of Con
Post by: battlestar81 on June 26, 2013, 05:04:09 PM
The Plus 1 is confirmed by the person running the event on his twitter as well as his website latino review. Post from the site: As part of the Breakneck crowdfunding campaign, I made a select batch of VIP tickets available to those who wish to attend with a guest. Like every year, our event is a full open bar (non of this cash bar nonsense) and we serve top shelf liquor. We also get a dope DJ to do the pro-music. This year’s event takes place at the ultra hot Pussycat Dolls Dollhouse
Title: Re: King of Con
Post by: BadWolf on June 26, 2013, 05:40:12 PM
Thanks! We purchased 2 tickets because there are 3 people in our group. :D
SherlockeDCC has a waiting list so at least 3 people can snag our tickets for that.

Really excited about this one - the open bar sold me!

As everyone else said, yes you do get a +1.

As far as an actual invite, I'm not sure. I know a "Save The Date" has been sent out to some but not sure that includes the backers. I imagine you guys might be on your own list.

Hoping it means give for free.  It would be a pretty silly thing to scalp at this point since there are so many still available for purchase.  I assume your name will be connected to the invite, but maybe you can contact them and change the name...

2 new updates on twitter for the kings of con:

Some interesting developments with #KINGSOFCON Also starting to get celeb & entourage inquiries too. Very cool. #SDCC

Post by: YouThinkMeMad on June 27, 2013, 06:19:32 PM

He also mentioned that he wanted to update the VIP Party description with the +1 info but it turns out once a perk is backed, you can't edit the description.

Still debating on if I should shell out the $150 for this. Who's been there in the past? What can I expect? Anything else to note besides the open bar, arcade games, pool tables, and celebs? Is it pretty chill in there or is it kinda high brow due to the exclusivity?

Thanks!

Host El Mayimbe has said a couple of times on Twitter "dress to impress" whatever that means.  He has mentioned the possibility of Bill Paxton, Jack Black, Stan Lee, and George RR Martin, as well as an unnamed Game of Thrones actor, attending.  I assume there will be more.  And if it's just you and you don't want to spend $150, you can probably find someone on here to split it with you since you are allowed a +1.
Title: Re: King of Con

There's a lot of studio people that go too. You def want to dress for the part. It doesn't need to be fancy but if you wore it to the Con that day you should probably change before the party.

That's the rule for all parties at night.

For hits check out this Monty's GQ and try to find affordable items based off of their guides.

Oh crap! I was not planning to dress up. I suppose I could go business casual then.

You'd be fine with a cute dress.

I think that would be fine.  I found some pics from last year and there were people in jeans, shorts etc.  I'm wearing a blouse, capris and nice sandals - you definitely don't have to wear a dress if you don't want to.

Okay awesome. Getting the guys in my group to dress up is going to be the challenge.

On another note, we find ourselves with an extra plus one. If anyone wants to buy it, let me know.

Shorts?  Shorts?! Did someone say you can wear shorts to this shindig?  That's great cuz I really "don't want to wear a dress if I don't  have to"  ;) Just kidding (not about the dress) the plan is after Dexter (if I get in) is to go the hotel, shower, put my "big boy pants" and a dress shirt on.  I will wear my new Chucks though!  :). BTW I read a review on yelp (I think) where a couple of guys were refused entry at this venue allegedly because they were wearing shorts and flip flops...

Any club will deny entry for those items. I've seen people here in Baltimore get turned away for that, it's not a surprise. lol

Are any of you planning to hit Game of Thrones on Friday? And if so, are you going directly from this party to line up? I am wondering when we should line up or if we need to camp out overnight for GoT.

The girlfriend and I will be at the King of the Con party as well.   Really looking forward to it!

Hello Kings Of Con Cool Kids!

Instead of emailing you via indiegogo, I created a KINGS OF CON mailchimp account specifically for you guys who pledged to the tier. So I took your emails and imported them into mailchimp because I feel this is a more organized way of communicating with you guys. Hope you don't mind.

For starters, thank you so much for pledging, it is deeply appreciated and I am working around the clock to make sure the event rocks for you guys.

Please note, that I copied the name from your indiegogo account and put it on the VIP list already. So when you originally pledged, your name went on the list at the same time. If you have a different name you want me to use for the list, please notify me as soon as possible.

I am personally handling the door specifically for you guys to greet each and every one of you and make sure you get in effortlessly. You guys are my top priority. Once the campaign is over, I will have my master list of names and will be instructing you on where to find me at the venue so you can get in. Once the last of you are inside, I will join you all downstairs. FYI, the venue upstairs from the Dollhouse will be accessible to us and also have pool tables and arcade games! Very cool.

The other reason I am emailing you guys is because I wanted to share the invite with you guys FIRST before I share it with the world tomorrow on the site. Hope you like it.

If you have pals that wish to pledge and come to the party, please let them know since we are entering the last week of the campaign. I think we are offering an incredible value at the Kings Of Con tier level besides the party.

What do you guys think of the invite?

Looking forward to your thoughts and to having a great event!

-Umberto

I'm not wearing my lanyard to the party, but I will be wearing a black top and hot pink pants - maybe I'll be the only one?   ^-^  Or we can recognize each other by the fact that we are squeeing and crying over *possible* celebrity attendees while the non-Indiegogo invitees stare at us like we have 10 heads  ;D

I'll be most likely wearing a dress with the Men of Dunharrow from LOTR on it. I figure something trendy + nerdy might be the way to go!

Ok, so I asked Umberto for clarification on dress code today and he replied with this:

Sure. It's a nightclub so ladies dress to impress and guys don't have to suit up but jeans, sneakers or dress shoes, t-shirt or button down with a blazer is fine. Dress shirt without blazer is fine as well. Hope this helps. :)

It's worded in a sort of confusing way (at least to me) but there you have it.

Did you guys see the tweet about Stallone and Schwarzenegger?

Man I'm all nervous now. I know the party doesnt' start officially until 10pm or so--I've got prior engagements at a party that I can not get out of for work stuff--so I won't be able to get to the door until 930pm. I emailed him to see if that was okay, but I *really* can't get out of the first thing until 9, and then I need like 30 minutes to get changed and back out to the dance club.

Ditto!  Sorry that I missed meeting you guys.  I was looking for capris Bzzy but I no find... :). Much thanks to DRWHO42; it was cool hanging with you guys.  Nice meeting WNA, Battlestar and anyone else I have left out.  Saw a few stars and other...things...before I ducked out.  This party, for me, was as advertised - the bomb!   8)

Seriously though? This was a lot of fun. I loved Luke Wilson hanging out in the back with his ball cap on.

Received this Indiegogo update email today - free NYCC kick off party for backers...

Hello everyone!

It's been a hot minute since I sent out an update. For starters, I'm working on closing some financing for the film that would enable us to shoot the film this fall/winter. Keeping my fingers crossed and you guys will be the first to know when it happens. If it doesn't happen then we go to the nuclear option in the spring, but that's for a later update. For those of you who pledged to the KINGS OF CON tier and are in town for New York Comic Con, I'm throwing a small kick off party tomorrow in case you're interested in coming. I attached the invite below which has the address and rsvp information. Hope to see you there!

(I'm just putting the link because when I tried to add the pic to the post it was HUGE!)
