It has been Evan Walker’s dream to write for Athletics, America’s Premier Sports Magazine. It's time to turn his dream into reality.
We are filming our thesis! It is a Television Pilot called Reigning Men, an ensemble piece that begins through the eyes of Evan Walker.
TAG: Are you man enough to stay on top?
It has been Evan Walker’s dream to write for Athletics, America’s Premier Sports Magazine. Now, it is time to turn his dream into reality. With his Uncle Rob as editor-in-chief and his two best friends on staff, Evan is a "shoo-in". But, when his uncle unexpectedly decides to go with another candidate, Evan is completely blindsided with the alternative: Alpha.com-America’s Gay News Source. Initially prepared to do anything, Evan is rendered speechless with the ultimatum “take the job and in a year something will open up”. After weighing his options, Evan decides to buck-up and prepare for a new world, learning quickly, he has no idea what it takes to be the man on top.
Reigning Men is a 1/2 hour comedy, single camera television show. To give you an idea of style, it shares the structure of 30 Rock with some visual elements of Ugly Betty. If you could put those two in a blender, hit puree a thousand times and pour it over the film The Bird Cage -- you get Reigning Men.
But, we are aiming high, very high, and we want Reigning Men to be on a channel you've heard of. Lets face it, there's a lot of channels out there and a lot of competition. A 3:00 AM time-slot-fighting-infomercials is not what we're looking for. Boo!
WHAT DOES YOUR SUPPORT GO TO?
CATERING - Having a crew of 30+ times 10 days gets expensive.
ACTORS TRAVEL & LODGING - We have a few people coming in from out of town that are very talented and they need their rest.
SET DESIGN- This show is very glossy and stylized. These set pieces are crucial.
CAMERA ACCESSORIES- We want to shoot on the Sony F3, and with that we need to get some extra camera equipment to make it extra pretty.
FURNITURE- We are re-creating an office. If any of you have ever worked in an office, now think of all the little things.
WARDROBE- One thing we cannot let slip or over look is how good our cast looks. They are one of a kind stylish know-it-all with the right wardrobe grammar, something we cannot ignore.
RENTAL TRUCKS- Plain and simple. There's a lot of the above that needs to get into our location, and the only way to move large and heavy equipment is moving trucks.
We cannot thank you enough for helping us create our vision. We have saved our entire life savings and are investing 100% of every ounce of energy and creative thought into our thesis production. We hope that you believe in us as much as we do. Our aim to finish principle photography is by the end of October. As soon as we have our dailies we will be sending it your way.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
