Geek Syndicate’s Autumn of Indie – What Is It?
Posted by geeksyndicate on September 4, 2012
What is Autumn of Indie?
In 2012, the indie scene has exploded even further with self-published novels now topping the Amazon charts, indie projects being crowd-funded on sites such as Kickstarter and Indiegogo and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
The Geek Syndicate crew are big fans of all things indie from the worlds of gaming, films, books, audio and especially comics. However, one of the problems we’ve seen is that there is so much great indie content out there that it’s being missed. Of course being the highly creative folk we are, we wracked our brains to come up with a name and finally after months of soul-searching we came up with ‘Autumn of Indie’. Ok maybe there was slightly less soul-searching than implied.
We wanted to try to play a small part in getting the word out and focusing on independent projects and we’ll be bringing you another special focus on the indie scene (similar to our Summer of Indie special) but this time over the Autumn months.
When will Autumn of Indie End?
The plan is to run Autumn of Indie right though to one of our favourite indie conventions Thought Bubble, a two-day comic convention ( 17th -18th Novemeber) which is held in Leeds as part of the Leeds Comic Art Festival (11th- 18th November). On the run up to Thought Bubble there are a few other big conventions with an indie presence which we will be looking at including the Northampton International Comic Expo (22nd -23rd Sept), MCM Expo’s Comic Village and the Cardiff International Comic Expo Showcase (4th November) and many more.
How can I get involved in Autumn of Indie?
The plan is to bring you news, reviews, features, guides, interviews, podcast specials, competitions and more from the indie world. We won’t just be confined to the Geek Syndicate website either! There will be content on our Facebook and Twitter (look out for the #autumnofindie hash tag) pages.
If you are an indie creator in the fields of gaming, film, books, audio (i.e audio dramas),comics etc and want to get the word out about your project we would love to hear from you. We can’t promise to review or feature every project on the site but we will do our best. All those interested please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
So all that’s left to say is welcome to the Autumn of Indie!
