ReedPOP x Astound x Spice DAO
Make the Dune Bible public by sharing the entire contents in person at three comic conventions in the U.S.A. in 2022: August 5-7 at C2E2 in Chicago; August 18-21 at Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle; and October 6-9 at New York Comic Con in New York City.
Partner with ReedPOP, owner and operator of multiple comic conventions, and Astound, an architectural fabrication and brand experience company, to create a unique immersive experience to view the entire contents of the book live and in-person. Build a unique booth that will stand out on the convention floor and attract hundreds of thousands of viewers in each city. Special access and privileges will be given to $SPICE hodlers.
The convention circuit has been a major factor in the development of the Ethereum ecosystem by allowing founders and builders to meet each other. Comic conventions have had a similar importance in the growth of the comic book industry globally. The Festival de la Bande Dessinée d’Angoulême in France; Comiket in Japan; and the San Diego Comic Con in the U.S.A. have historically been the largest conventions in the business. By sharing the Dune Bible with its core fanbase Spice DAO will grow awareness about Web3 technology and help onboard the next million users to Ethereum.
DUNE BIBLE EXHIBITION
Astound has created an original immersive experience to showcase the entire contents of the book in person. A darkened room in the shape of an oculus contains a large viewing area and the book on a podium. A professional art handler wearing white cotton gloves slowly turns each page of the book. A 4K camera shoots the book from above and an enlarged image is projected onto a curved screen. The design of the booth references architecture in contemporary art specifically the glass pavilions of Dan Graham and Roden Crater by James Turrell. The booth will be fully-staffed at all times with Spice DAO ambassadors and professional security guards. No mobile phones or cameras will be allowed inside the booth. No food or drink will be allowed inside the booth. The viewing space will be standing room only.
BUDGET & TIMELINE
ReedPOP and Astound will be presenting different budgets to the Core Team over the next 60 days but general estimates are mid-five figures for convention floor space and mid-six figures for construction and maintenance of the booth (insurance, materials, fabrication, transportation, storage, staff, security). Marketing costs will be assumed by ReedPOP.
Tickets for admission to the booth can be sold by the DAO to generate revenue, or admission can be free with purchase of a convention ticket. $SPICE hodlers will have to purchase a convention ticket but get special access and privileges to the booth and potentially the convention.
Convention dates are August 5-7 at C2E2 in Chicago; August 18-21 at Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle; and October 6-9 at New York Comic Con in New York City.
