We featured The Sidekick as one of the five panels that should not be missed at this year’s Comic-Con, but were we right? The Sidekick follows super hero sidekick Max McCabe on a journey of self discovery after his disastrous final mission with Captain Wonder (played by a wonderfully dry Ron Livingston). Created as a way to cope with turning forty, actor-writer Rob Benedict successfully assembled a team of super-talented friends to help out with the film including Martin Starr, Lizzy Caplan, Richard Speight Jr., Jordan Peele, Jason Ritter, and Josh Meyers.
So there you have it! After a ton of amusing videos and some great guerrilla campaigning our buddy Brea Grant’s upcoming feature film Best Friends Forever met its $75,000.00 kickstarter goal this afternoonl! As we promised on Twitter, if you happened to donate some of your hard earned shillings to the Best Friends Forever kickstarter campaign AND happen to be in San Diego this summer for Comic Con International, then we owe you some delicious pizza pie! Now we literally have none of the details ironed out yet, but both Brea Grant and Stacey Storey mentioned that they may join us for a slice (schedule permitting). So how do you secure yourself a piece of pizza? Easy as pie (get it)! First, send us a simple screen shot like the one above that proves that you’re a backer. Attach the image to an e-mail along with a link to your kickstarter profile and send it to Ash@NerdAppropriate.com. We’ll make sure there is enough pizza to feed your awesome face! I’ll also do my best to work on getting some more *surprise* guests to show up to the yet-to-be-planned event. If you haven’t donated yet… do it! This is free pizza we’re talking about here.
Oh yeah! Best Friends Forever is giving away all sorts of great rewards (other than pizza) for helping out. So head on over to Best Friends Forever’s kickstarter campaign page a look at the loot!
