Quick & Dirty Musicals is a series of 15 minute musicals in which each episode has a puckish twist on conventional storytelling
"I'm going to be a great film star! That is, if booze and sex don't get me first."
Sally Bowles, Cabaret (1972)
Welcome! If you're here it means you're interested in QUICK & DIRTY MUSICALS, a web series of original musicals featuring the best young talent of Philadelphia (or you navigated to this page accidentally after watching someone sing about rainbows or something on YouTube. If so, keep reading; more rainbows to come).
QUICK & DIRTY MUSICALS started from talking with the people I respect most about our frustration at the lack of musical film on the web. Like any angry mob we decided to form a production company with the singular objective to produce a series of high quality musical films for all the world to enjoy. Here's where we are so far-
We are currently raising funds for our first two pilot episodes. We need just $1,000 to get started. But Georgie, $1,000 isn't enough capital to produce two fully realized musical films; how could you possibly do so much with so little? I'm very glad you asked super fan. There has been such a positive response to this project that we have already assembled an amazing team of artists and negotiated top of the line equipment for nothing! What we can't get on good looks and a dream are 1. location costs, 2. incidental equipment rental, 3. costume and properties, 4. copy for the cast and crew and 5. A solid meal for each filming day for the cast and crew for being so awesome and contributing so much of their time and talents.
QUICK & DIRTY MUSICALS is a labor of love for us. Every member of the team is passionate about producing this project and hungry to begin working. All we need is your help to kick us into our first lap. If you agree that there is not nearly enough of quality musical films on the web, if you love musical theatre or just want to support young and hungry artists, please consider joining us in pursing this worthwhile project.
Thank you for your consideration and contribution,
Quick & Dirty Musicals
Woah there champ. Look we like you and we like that you like us but let's just take this one step at a time. Why not show us you're a love of music and donate $25 to receive a special edition CD, bonus tracks and all. That'll really get us going ;)
Very good question. First of all, each episode is a completely new story without any connection to any other in the series so it's not possible to give a general description of the plot.
We are currently producing 2 pilot episodes composed by Jacob Bremkamp, an exceptionally talented musical theatre writer and recent graduate of the University of the Arts. As the pilot episodes reach post-prodcution, we will be looking for new Screenwriters and Composers to craft new musical using the pilot episodes as the model.
Yes, this means we will be looking for submissions from Screenwriters and Composers! Please check our Facebook site for more details:
What an engaging question! You can check back here. in the UPDATES tab above we will be posting new information about the episodes as we are ready to release it. The best way to stay informed about the progress of this project is to DONATE. Once you do, you'll be informed of all updates added to this site and be able to stay up to date with QUICK & DIRTY!
You'll be happy to know there is! If you have a Facebook please "Like" this site as well as our Facebook site:
The more "Likes" the more internet exposer we have and the better chance we have at reaching our goal early as well as exceeding it (don't worry, we won't complain about extra cash, that's not how we roll).
Sure can! Just send us a message on our Facebook site and let us know how you can help:
