Nerds and geeks...living together...MASS HYSTERIA! A look inside the elusive world of gaming nerds and geeks.
After talking about the events that have continued to plague our lives, year after year, we came to the conclusion that they were too unbelievable not to share with the public, hence the idea for Nerd Geek, a look into the lives of two nerdy, geeky gamers. We started to draw concepts for the characters in January 2012 and after several rough drafts decided on the current character depictions.
My team and I have been working on Nerd Geek for about 6 months now and have come quite a long way. We have been painstakingly hand drawing each character into the computer and from there animating frame by frame. From just an idea to a concept to reality, it has taken some hard work and dedication.
The animation style I am using is a classic video game style to match the nerdiness and feel of the characters. Every episode will be like another level of a video game. Episode 1 titled "Level 1. Go to the Movies" will be our pilot episode that will introduce you to some of our main characters and personalities.

This is just a list of a few of the characters in Nerd Geek. There are many more to come.
Adam and Ryan are two gaming geeks living together in a rundown apartment in Illinois. The show follows the crazy events that occur in their daily lives while gaming and doing other nerdy activities. We start the first episode with introducing Adam and Ryan during a trip to the movies. There is a can of B’froni that keeps mysteriously popping up after several attempts to rid it from the apartment. In future episodes we will follow Adam and Ryan on a road trip from hell and on a visit to the renaissance fair. Throughout the series Adam and Ryan will meet new friends and eccentric characters will be added to the series.
Our first season will include six 10 to 15 minute episodes. We would like to distribute Nerd Geek digitally and on DVD. Eventually we would like to get a large enough following that some of the major networks take notice and want to pick us up as a running series on television.
Why are we on Kickstarter?
We decided to come to Kickstarter to ask for the funds to purchase computers and drawing pads that will make our animating much faster so that we can get our show out to the public in a more timely fashion as well as to help promote Nerd Geek and keep us making more episodes in the future. If fully funded we anticipate finishing the first season in the first few months following the end of our Kickstarter campaign. We are really excited to share our show with everyone and hope to get it out there as soon as possible.
