    Zachary Levi Reveals Nerd HQ Crowdfunding Tactics

    Earlier today, Levi launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo, called I Want My Nerd HQ, designed to help offset some of the costs of 2014′s Nerd HQ. Levi explained to us that because the money made from the star-studded panels goes to the charity Operation Smile, he uses money both sponsors and his own funds to keep the event running every year. Its a model, though, thats fundamentally broken.

    According to Levi, most companies dont finalize their Comic-Con budget until much closer to the event, making it difficult for them to commit to Nerd HQ during the time of the year when down payments for venues and other expenses are due. For that reason, Levi has been paying for parts of the event out of pocket for years.

    Its a major undertaking to put on something like Nerd HQ, Levi said. I would get reimbursed from sponsors closer to the event or after the event, and the first couple of years, it essentially worked. We essentially broke even. But last year was not very kind.
    $5...that's all he is asking. If you go to the Con, this is something you should experience. Even if you don't go to the panels, it's a cool set-up with all you can eat video games, special events and stuff. I would hate to see this go away because it adds so much to the weekend.
