Press Release (ePRNews.com) - LOS ANGELES - Oct 04, 2018 - For the first time ever, the intimate, original, and exclusive content and interactions of a fandom convention and its community can be experienced digitally via mobile device. Unlocked is the new app inviting both fans and celebrities to tap into the Comic-Con, anime, and pop culture universe 365 days a year, regardless of their location.
Founded by fan and pop culture icons Bryce Papenbrook and David Vincent, who are best known for their voice work on many popular anime and video game series, Unlocked was created to give celebrities a richer, more streamlined, and faster way to connect with fans.
Offering a curated selection of exclusive and live content from top pop culture celebrities, such as John Barrowman (Dr. Who) and Yuri Lowenthal (Spider-Man PS4), the app empowers fans to stream, comment on, and even converse with their favorite celebrities in a convenient and line-free digital setting. And, for those seeking even more interaction, they can advance their way to the front of live conversation feeds via in-app gameplay and digital swag.
Knowing what it is like to be on both sides of the autograph table, and how difficult it can be to carve out the time to truly connect, we developed Unlocked with the intention of capturing the energy of Comic-Con and the pop culture community within a digital platform. This is like having a virtual fandom convention at your fingertips!

An incubated company at startup studio Science Inc., which helped launch now massively successful businesses such as Dollar Shave Club, Unlocked is poised to completely optimize celebrity-to-fan communication within the vibrant Comic-Con, anime, and pop culture community.
“Fans are entering into a one-of-kind virtual world where they get access to exclusive content and interactive livestreams that can lead to memorable one-on-one conversations with some of their favorite pop culture icons,” says Papenbrook. “But it’s not only the fans who benefit. Top celebrities are seeing Unlocked as a smart business move: they are able to offer a more streamlined and engaged fan experience, while also gaining valuable exposure to fresh corners of the pop culture community. It’s a win-win for everyone involved.”
Unlocked’s interactive celebrity live streams are entirely free to view, while weekly, monthly, and annual membership options are available for fans seeking the key to even more exclusive content and features.
Unlocked is currently available for iOS with plans for an Android release later this year. To learn more or enter the world of Unlocked today, please visit https://unlockedofficial.com.
