A TV pilot about two friends who want to bring their love of craft beer to America.
Simply put, we want to shoot a pilot episode for a potential TV series The Brew Hunters. This episode will document our journey from Iowa City to Madison, Wisconsin to discover what makes that city a hot bed for craft beer. We will visit the bars, breweries and restaurants to meet the people responsible for this city's beer-related fame. What will happen when two beer nerds are let loose on the streets of Madison? Help us reach our project goal and find out!
The goal of the Brew Hunters is to illuminate the growing craft beer culture in America and show the positive impact that local brewing has on the economy and quality of life for all those involved. Craft beer is better beer and we want to bring that message to the American public.
Our pilot episode will focus on the city of Madison, Wisconsin: a city famous for its devotion to craft beer. We will stop for a pint at some the city's best bars and brew-pubs and chat with locals about why they drink the beer that they do and how good beer has affected their lives. With the locals' help we will learn about what it means to live in Madison and maybe, just maybe we will learn something about ourselves.
Once this pilot is complete our goal is to take it to the next level and create a complete series for television.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Our main challenge is to create that "professional" look, that is to say TV worthy. We have lots of experience in producing smaller projects and single camera shoots, but shooting a full fledged pilot is a different beast altogether. We will overcome this with excessive planning, the rental of a second camera, and other production equipment and leveraging our experienced production crew.
