Crowdsourcing Mornings: Last Fan Standing Season Two


Geek Alabama Crowdsourcing Mornings

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

Earlier this year, Last Fan Standing hosted by Bruce Campbell filmed 10 episodes at 2 conventions with 4 episodes shot in New Orleans and 6 in Portland in front of a live audience at Wizard World. Everyone in the audience was given a clicker and a chance to compete.  Thousands of well versed, knowledge filled conventioneers competed in a no holds bar trivia tournament. This year, we’re doing it all again, but it’s going to be bigger, better, and even more Bruce-ier.  Well, now it’s time for the world to be a fan of you. Flex your trivial knowledge in a game show designed specifically for fans! You’ve never seen a game show like this before.

Last Fan Standing features contestants on their show who have PROVEN to have the best knowledge in the group.  They don’t do any of that ‘casting’ junk, if you’re a fan, and you know stuff. You have a chance to compete.  Now they want to make the show better, and more available to YOU. This campaign will help them with the essentials. Better set, high quality video, more flash and incentives to create an amazing fan-centric celebratory show that they can easily take to a convention near you.  As they’ve said before, this isn’t your standard trivia show. They take the show to YOU! Building a set that can travel and hiring a team in each city to film takes a lot of effort to produce. So they’ve worked tirelessly to build a budget that allow them to make something awesome, take it to multiple cities, and reward fans for their knowledge in an entertaining way.

They made Last Fan Standing not because they are looking for a corporate sellout, but because the show is fun, and hasn’t been done before. Bruce puts his time into it, because he loves the fans.  At the end of the day this show is about fans, so they feel it should be made by fans. Kickstarter is their way to take the show to new places with your help, your passion, your FANPOWER!  They have a chance to take Season 1, jack it up with steroids, reinforce it with Adamantium, then slap it in the face to psyche it up. Then put it in places you’d never expect to see Last Fan Standing, maybe even places OUTSIDE the internet.
