I've been running a blog/site at http://nerd-base.com for almost two years now. I want to take it further and make it better, but unfortunately, I don't make enough money to put into doing so.
I'm looking to get better equipment to do more exclusive videos and podcasts mainly, but man, that stuff is EXPENSIVE!!! Sadly, my day job does not pay enough to support my dream, barely enough for me to live outside of a paycheck-to-paycheck existence, so I need some help and I'm putting pride aside to ask for it here.
To break it down simply. I'm heading to New York Comic Con this October. Last year's covereage was well recieved, but it could have been so much better if I wasn't using a bunch of sub-par equipment that was bought used or borrowed and barely working. I lost quite a bit of video and audio and thus a lot of wasted time and effort to my frustration. What I did manage to salvage was difficult to process because my laptop is over six years old and not that good to begin with.
This year, I want to do so much better. I also want to cover more events and conventions!!
In addition to the rewards in the sidebar, all who contribute $5+ will recieve an offer to write articles, guest on one or more podcasts and/or place ads/links/messages on the website for a discussed amount of time (mostly dependent on type and reason for placement). Email chrism @ nerd-base.com after contributing for details/discussion.
Also, all rewards will be delivered upon regardless of whether or not the goal is reached (PLEASE REACH THE GOAL!! PLLLEEEAAASEE!?)
What these funds will go to:
- Zoom H6 or H4n: An amazing and versatile portable recording device.
- Canon Txi Camera: A reliable camera with good video capabilities that the Zoom audio device can be hooked up to for interviews/coverage.
- Accessories for both to go mobile such as cases and stands.
That's it. Honesty with a breakdown. My thanks in advance.
