Uh oh. Hopefully, I didn’t use up all my good will the last time I asked for something, because it’s that time again.
That pilot episode I showed you last week, the one I directed and made with some friends? Well, the plan is to make nine more episodes of the series, but in order to do that we’re going to need money.
Now, we’ve already made a budget, it’s all very “charts” and “numbers” and other things I learned in high school that keep me up at night. We’ve done all the legwork, put forth our pilot and planned out the rest of the series (no spoilers), so now all we need from you, dear readers and fans of 20-something dramedies, is to pick your perk and be all like, “yes, please do make more, and I will cover your coffee and 1/8 of a lens rental for a shoot. How do I do that?”
To answer your first question, all you need to do is go to our IndieGoGo page:
Then look at the right column to see which perk sounds the best to you for your budget. We have some really good ones, like DVDs, posters, and totes. Perks start at the $5 level, and only get more awesome from there. How would you like to be an Executive Producer?
Or you could click the huge CONTRIBUTE NOW button, and pick your perk from the next page. It really all leads to the same place. You don’t even have to pick a perk; you could also just give us money if you’re the most generous person ever. How would you like to be The Most Generous Person Ever?
We’re aiming for $14,000 to cover our whole budget, which seems like a lot, but when you break it down into 9 episodes, it’s not that much at all. The main costs involved are booking locations, equipment (mostly rentals), art department (wardrobe, props, makeup, and set dressing), and feeding the cast and crew during shoots. If everyone who reads this donates at the $15 level, we’ll reach our goal in no time.
If you’re still skeptical, I can give you my personal guarantee that this series is awesome, and I can’t wait to tell the story with all the other awesome amazing people involved.
