Beach City Con Stretch Goal to Bring in Voice Actors
The Beach City Con Stretch Goal is going to voice actors Zach Callison and Grace Rolek.
The voices of Steven and Connie may be headed to Virginia Beach in 2017 if the Kickstarter reaches their Beach City Con stretch goal of $35,000. The convention reached their initial goal of $7,000 in less than two hours. As of the time of this writing they’ve more than doubled that amount with $18,581 currently pledged. The convention is over a year out, with festivities planned for October 13-15th, 2017, in Virginia Beach, and the exciting announcements are already rolling in. What other amazing news will come out in the next 13 months? As the con draws close, events and programming should be announced. Opportunities for vendors should also be forthcoming, though those who are inquiring about such opportunities are being directed to their contact page.
There’s been some doubt about the potential success of this convention, with many comparing it to DashCon. The organizers of the convention are both contributors for this website, and Tara ironically covered the DashCon disaster when it happened back in 2014. She witnessed convention failure unfold and offered commentary on it in one of the most linked to articles on the Internet regarding the event. Tara and her co-organizer K-K have also witnessed successful fan conventions with their own Ice & Fire Con that’s been running since 2012. A healthy dose of skepticism isn’t exactly wrong, but these organizers have four years of convention organizing experience behind them. They’ve also attended dozens of conventions not only as guests, but also as press and panelists.
I won’t be able to attend Beach City Con myself, but their Kickstarter has a “limited edition Beach City Con gift” that I’m dying to learn more about. For those who can attend, current perks include early ticket buying and full weekend passes along with the special gift. For a single dollar, you can also get your name listed on the Thank You page for the website.
