@The Bronycon doco discussion
I’m actually still in agreement with the very first comment that Randomman posted
THE BRONYCON DOCUMENTARY ISN’T EVEN FILMED YET.
We still don’t know what this documentary is going to do. We don’t know what it’s going to give us, how it will portray us or what it will reveal. Everything is speculation and I dislike passing judgement on things on foreseen speculation alone.
Will the documentary be worth its price tag of $200,000? Will it be meaningful and unbias? Will it be just a huge circlejerk? My answer: wait and find out.
The next guy to speak up says this:
I’ve seen a fair share of documentaries in my day.
So he’s basing his judgement on the documentary purely on his history with documentaries alone. That’s fair enough, he can do that assuming that the Bronycon documentary doesn’t try to be different. But the only real point I find he has it at the bottom:
Say what you will when it’s done and you’ve watched it. Until then, what is there really to say?
There is nothing to say. The arguments are more pointless and bias than the documentary could ever be.
All those people arguing about what the documentary could potentially be worth, whether they are for or against; just tells me how extremely bored people are. There’s no telling what will happen now and if it works then it works, if it fails then it fails.
Until we get a greater grasp of the creators plans (And no, the quotes they made when they declared the documentary are NOT ENOUGH to draw a conclusion on the final product), I cannot be bothered trying to make up in my mind whether or not this film will hurt or heal. Honestly, it can go either way but more likely it will make little difference. Haters will keep hating, Bronies will keep bronying and everyone else will just be a bit more informed
All those people whining about what big waste of time and money it is are themselves wasting their time trying to convince people that something will be terrible. If people want to put $200,000 into the project then it is obviously worth it for somebody. If it’s not worth it to you, then why do you even care? (A point Dan made earlier)
Granted the 3rd comment after that was fantastic. A well thought out post. The only thing I disagree with is the notion that the fandom put all this money into the documentary because we are all apparently terrified of our public perception.
I wont deny that there are some Bronies who lack some self esteem and fear what the public thinks of us. But c’mon do you really believe we all unanimously thought “OH PLEASE MAKE US LOOK GOOD! HAVE $200,000! PEOPLE ARE MEAN TO US!” as soon as the documentary was announced? No, just no. We put money into that documentary because we are attention whores and we want to be in a damn spotlight. THAT is why we donated!
I grow wary of this fandom labeling itself as being insecure all because some people in the same fandom just wanted to be on camera and donated to a documentary. That really rustles my jimmies
I cannot be bothered with the 4th comment.
As for the minute details of what particular aspects the documentary will address and its impact (such as R34) I believe we already discussed that earlier in this thread and I agree with the former conclusion that the documentary will unlikely address R34 as it is not relevant to bronycon.
I refer to Dan for everything else, I agree with much of his posts.
I also like Ellie Goulding a lot more than I should.
Twins, I think you broke Cite…he likes something now.
