    They play actors from a failed sci fi show that was cancelled prematurely.

    Interesting... without knowing the storyline, I think I'd prefer a "fictionalized" version of themselves (i.e. Alan playing "Alan" and Nathan playing "Nathan.")

    In 12 hours or so they have already received $715K in funding, nearly $300K more than their initial goal. The Browncoats have risen up. :)

    My sister told me about it this afternoon. I contributed before I even read the description.

    If you watch the video they are going to make fun of the weird people they encounter at cons... not the con-goers, but the promoters and the security guys and so forth. Making it more fictionalized than that makes that easier for them.

    I like the part how "Con Man" has a double meaning - both sci-fi convention man and the way he gets strangers longing for the past to give him $1.3 million out of thin air.

    $1.7 million now... The "HangWith" perk is a bit strange - mostly Alan reading greetings from the screen, when it works at all. Still kinda fun, when it works, which is not always.

    Reddit AMA today. Some fun comments in there, including this:

    Alan Tudyk: Although it's important to note: leaves that are flying in the wind are dead.
    It's true! I just realized it this past year.

    Alan will be at Megacon in Orlando this weekend. They are going to count down the minutes on the Indiegogo campaign at a bar Friday night and be shooting crowd scenes for the show all day Saturday.

    Trailer is great. I'm in for $25 so I can stream when it's ready.

    Cool - I'll be there! Just on Sunday, though :-(

    However, Sunday is when they're (Alan, Summer Glau, and Adam Baldwin) doing the Firefly panel, so at least I'll catch that.

    I've been thinking of day tripping down just for the Firefly panel. Maybe I'll see you there.

    It would be great to meet you - I'll look for you! You can spot us by looking for my 15 year old daughter, who will almost certainly be dressed as Mal.
