I recently stumbled upon a tweet on Margaret Atwood’s twitter stream that talked about Fanado. Intrigued by the idea of technology bridging the gap between artist and fan, I took a few moments to check out what Fanado had to offer and to learn more about the Indiegogo campaign.
About our Go Mobile Campaign:
We want to take Fanado wide by making it accessible to everyone with an iPad, iPhone or Android device. Both Artists and Fans can take part in 1:1 meetings, sign and receive collectibles, chat with other fans – wherever they are in the world.
We built Fanado largely in-house, with our own resources – a small team working from our co-founder’s house in Toronto. To build the Apps we need to hire outside expertise – cross-platform design and programming, integration of mobile video with our patented signing and back-end support. To “Go Mobile,” in short, we need you.
With your help, Fanado can fulfill its promise of Anyone, Anytime, Anyplace. With Indiegogo funds, we’ll create two Apps – one for Artists, one for Fans – that work with both iOS and Android tablets. Whether you’re at home, in the office, on the road, or on jury duty, you’ll be able to connect live – audience to artist – up close and personal.
Pledge now and become one of the first to use Fanado – meet our Beta Artists including musicians & bands, authors & athletes, film & TV celebrities; artists both new and known. You can even create your own Fanado channel.
Join us at Fanado – where technology takes us places we couldn’t go before. We appreciate any and all support, and hope you’ll join us on this trip!
I was instantly hooked by the possibility of meeting some of my literary heroes (like Margaret Atwood!), and was honestly excited by the prospect of having not only a video recording of the meeting, but both a digital and physical autograph from the artist! I had one of those moments when I felt like I was watching history happen, like I was living in one of my science fiction novels or movies. (Hoverboards and cars that drive themselves are just around the corner–I can feel it!)
I admire the digital pioneering of this company–to be able to create meetings and memories with artists who would normally be well out of reach for the normal fan–and hope they gain the momentum they need to make their mobile campaign successful.
Have you checked out the video? Aside from the funny bleeps over the script, what did you think?
