A reality show that details the start, growth and life of an actual new media Internet start up company - as it happens.
Creating a new media Internet company is hard. There are problems, pitfalls, highs, lows and all sorts of stuff in between.
This show will detail all of this and more. We intend to create a reality show that shows the highs, the lows, the celebrations, the defeats and all things in between.
This project is not just to document the creation of a real company in what will be close to real time, but also to show the reality, the hard work, the emotional roller coaster and the massive amount of hard work that goes into an entrepreneurial venture.
The funding for this project will be used to pay a separate crew and director to film and edit the project - to provide an external objective view of what is filmed, edited and ultimately shown. This is a reality show - not a shill for the company.
We plan to create this show using traditional reality methods - film everything, from company meetings to pitches, strategy sessions to work sessions and even the standard confessional for employees.
We plan to film and edit in as close to real time as possible - thereby insuring that the audience gets the opportunity to truly see how this unfolds in relation to the economic markets, the emotional markets and the real time development of Internet based media as a whole.
This may never be the next YouTube, or Facebook - but then again, it may be. Only instead of creating a film in retrospective - this will be what happens, when it happens, with the actual people who make it happen.
Not exactly the Truman show - but certainly damn close to it. Welcome to true reality.

Pledge $10 or more
POSTER AUTOGRAPHED BY CAST: It's only a $10 pledge, so don't expect a framed oil on canvas here. We really appreciate (NEED) every dollar we can raise to make this happen, so every $10 pledge is truly appreciated - but since we need to keep the cash to make the show, we really can't blow it on sending you a fancy ass picture. For your $10 pledge - you will receive an 8 X10 photo, signed by the cast and mailed to you in a plain envelope - and our eternal thanks.Estimated delivery: Dec 2011
Pledge $25 or more
PREMIERE PARTY EVENT: A mere $25 gets you a (one, single, uno) ticket to the premiere party for the show. If you want to bring a guest - then you need to pledge another $25. We guarantee laughter, drinking (if you are of age), snacks and other merriment. The Premiere Party will be held in Chicago somewhere and it is up to you to get here.Estimated delivery: Jan 2012
Pledge $100 or more
WALK ON ROLE: Andy Warhol was so right when he said that everyone gets their 15 minutes of fame. Why wait. Pledge $100 to the project and we will be happy to give you a walk on role in an upcoming episode. You will have to get yourself to Chicago, house yourself and get yourself around - but once on set we will treat you like a star. Your own chair, access to craft services and a genuine "you are on camera" moment that you can share with friends, family and Hollywood super agents.Estimated delivery: Dec 2011
Pledge $1,000 or more
GUARANTEED JOB INTERVIEW: We guarantee you an actual to goodness - one on one -with the CEO of the company - job interview. Hey - we know that building a new media company is a risky venture - but if it works, if we end up being the next YouTube or Facebook or whatever - how much do you think a guaranteed interview with the top dog will be. What do you think 30 minutes with Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, Andrew Mason or Bill Gates is worth today? This is your chance to buy into the opportunity to get a guaranteed 30 minutes with whoever the head honcho will be - and this reward does NOT have an expiration date.Estimated delivery: Dec 2011
Pledge $10,000 or more
EXECUTIVE PRODUCER: Seriously, for $10,000 we plant your name in big letter on all the publicity materials, on each episode before and after the action. Hell, we will even have an Executive Producers chair on set for you every day with an open invitation for you to drop by whenever you want and be on set whenever you feel like it. Imagine the glitz, the glamour, the craft services (probably a box of donut holes and box of joe from Dunkin' Donuts - we need the money to create the show, not feed ourselves) and you! Oh yes - this reward also comes with massive gratitude, repeated thanks and even a bit of sycophantic grovelling.Estimated delivery: Dec 2011
