For almost three years and 200+ episodes, the Feelin' Film Podcast  has been a place where hosts discuss film with a focus on their emotional response to the themes within and honestly highlight their positive takeaways while steering away from heavy negative criticism. 

The podcast's growth has allowed our hosts to attend film screenings, festivals, and conventions, as well as conduct interviews of actors, directors, and more. The podcast's newest opportunity is access to attend the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con International  from June 17-21 as members of the press. 

But with great opportunity often comes great cost. Attending SDCC is an expensive affair, especially so for a host whose primary income is working for a non-profit. Our goal is to have one of our co-hosts, Aaron White, a credentialed member of the Seattle Press and officer in the Seattle Film Critics Society, present for all days of the con. But at this time lodging is proving cost prohibitive. 


Cost Breakdown

Lodging: 7 days/6 nights -  $500 

Airfare: Self-pay
Public Transportation: Self-pay
Meals: Self-pay

* Our desire is to raise enough money to cover Aaron's lodging costs, which must be paid very soon upfront. 

What Will Aaron Be Doing?

As of now, Aaron will be covering the convention alone, but our hope is to bring in a second film critic/podcaster for a team effort. Aaron has large convention experience and will be actively attending as many panels and previews as possible. Coverage will be constant via our social media feeds on Twitter and in the aforementioned Facebook Discussion Group.  Aaron will be carrying around a microphone and recorder, actively seeking out interviews, and recording reaction episodes on any big news as the convention progresses. We will also be recording a post-con episode recap with one of our favorite guests, Andrew B. Dyce of ScreenRant.com  . 

What You Get

Now if you want to give out of the kindness of your heart, we'll absolutely take it. But we do have some fun things to help say "thank you" for helping us make this dream come true.

We know that our listener base is varied, with cinephiles and movie fans of all kinds. And we know that many love the content discussed at San Diego Comic-Con and will enjoy the perspective that Feelin' Film can bring to covering one of the biggest events of the year. Thank you for reading and considering helping us achieve this dream.

Hello, everyone. We're writing to apologize and let you know that despite our best intentions, the rapidly rising cost of this trip has unfortunately pushed beyond what we believe is viable for us to raise in order to attend. We are so incredibly grateful for your support and willingness to help, and it definitely inspires us to put this in our 2020 Summer plans as an event we can save and prepare for attending ahead of time.

Shortly, we'll be issuing a refund to you all that should appear within a few days. Again, we are very sorry for not being able to follow through, but felt it was better to cancel early before we received anymore donations. Covering San Diego Comic-Con is still a dream and now that we know it's possible, Feelin' Film will be there soon.

Thank you so much.

- Aaron, Patrick, and MJ

If the trip is funded, we will also have a second host on site with Aaron helping to provide coverage of the convention. That second host is MJ Smith, podcaster/writer/discussion group member!
