ShockBox is an outrageous, cutting-edge comedy series about two guys who create an indi music show just to meet their favorite band.
Here’s the scoop: We have 24 extremely entertaining episodes written and ready for production. We have an incredibly talented cast attached, a professional crew in place and ready to work hard for their peanuts, locations locked down, professional musicians and bands lined up to contribute original tunes, social media pages ready to launch (Twitter + Facebook), distribution in place on multiple web platforms, and we’re just getting started.
Before we can begin production on this completely unique, hysterical comedy series, we have to get some money in place to pay our people for their hard work.
This is a passion project for everyone involved, however passion alone won’t pay for crew members’ valuable time, meals, professional grade gear (cameras, microphones, lens rentals, props, lights, wardrobe, set design) and the many other expenses that come with creating a world around a comedy series. We've been developing this project for the better part of a year and it’s time to ask for your help.
The goal of this campaign is to raise $24,000 to make our series a reality. This is the bare minimum needed to bring ShockBox to life for all the world to enjoy (while maintaining the level of quality it deserves). The best part is, every dollar is going straight into the production. If we exceed our goal of $24,000, the series will directly improve as a result.
This is where it gets interesting. If we do not succeed in raising $24,000 by July 16th we will not receive ANY of the money pledged. None. Nada. Your credit/debit card won’t be charged, and the series will not get made. Of course this would be extremely unfortunate, and that's why we need your help!
If you let your eyes wander over to the right hand side of this web page, you’ll see the super sweet rewards we're offering you for participating in ShockBox’s creation! The more you pledge, the sweeter the rewards!
We realize that times are tough for everybody, so if you’re only able to spare a few bucks at this time, the great news is, you can still support us! Share the link to this campaign on your Facebook, Twitter, blog, or website. Email your friends and family, show them the video, and get them excited! The more people that see this, the better our chances for hitting our goal and making an amazing comedy series!
Thank you so much for your support!
