Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Our biggest challenge in developing this web series is finding the right
cast, and crew for each of our episodes. With all the great talent in Los Angeles, and New York, it's going to take time, and money to hire a team that will take our vision to life. In order to make this work, we need the best cast to take on this journey.
Another difficulty that comes to mind is having the funding in place for hard costs from Pre to Post Production. Items include Locations, Talent, Camera, Lighting, Sound, Electric, Production Design, Hair/Makeup, Wardrobe, Music, Insurance, Food and more. We have filed our paperwork to be a SAG New Media contract and are excited to bring these fabulous stories to life with your help.
We need your help to collect $4000 per episode, and finally begin shooting this Hitchcock meets The Twilight Zone web series from the Creator of Room 32 short. Every contribution helps, and please help us spread the word.
As soon as we meet our pledge, we will ship your rewards (& mention your name in our social media networks), and will update you where we are in this project.
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
