IMPORTANT NEW VIDEO MESSAGE FROM DOYLE & MORETTI!

We must keep going! As Moretti always says, “Four apples don’t always make apple pie”. If we reach our first 20k goal, we'll have the bare minimum needed to finish season one. Basically, we’ll have the crust and some apple pie filler. But just some.

We have two stretch goals we're going to work hard to reach, because if we do, we can take our series to the next level in tangible ways.

$25,000 Stretch Goal

If we can make it to $25k, we can license music from the Karate Kid. Music that's vital to the entire plot of episode 6! How can you expect Doyle to do a crane kick without hearing “Glory of Love?” Not possible. It cannot be done.

$30,000 Stretch Goal

We're blown away by the positive feedback and guidance we've gotten during the campaign, and one thing we've learned is that there may be key opportunities to pursue that would take our show on the road. If we can make it to $30k, we can afford to submit our project to festivals and actually travel to them. In a plane. And sleep somewhere besides Moretti's van.

Please keep sharing. Your support and enthusiasm has meant the world to us and to this project, a labor of love for so many. But with your help we can help Casey Doyle and Russell Moretti live—stretch goal 1 (better lives)—like Ralph Macchio—stretch goal 2 (while sleeping at hotels).

UPDATE 10/2:

An urgent message from Russell Moretti, one of All Talk's main characters.

 

We're just a few crazy kids who had a dream. That dream? Make an original series. A funny, insightful, scrappy, human, and did we mention funny? series called All Talk

Good news: our dream is well on its way to being realized! Better news: we have just one final hurdle to cross. It's a financial hurdle, and you (yes, you) can help us clear it. We've already shot eight episodes and have just four more to go! With your help, we can officially complete our first full season.

Just that. Through online platforms, smaller, shorter productions now have the opportunity to showcase the many undiscovered talents out there. (Ahem, us.)  We're proud of what we're making, and we know it has great potential to entertain a growing audience.  

Some of your favorite shows got their start in the same exact way - Broad City, High Maintenance and Drunk History, to name a few.

 

When we meet our heroes, Doyle finds himself stuck living with his parents and is having suicidal thoughts after being dumped by his long-time girlfriend. He befriends Moretti, a self-appointed “talk coach,” whose set-up is anything but professional. Now, it's true: Moretti gives affordable therapy. But, out of his van? What? During his lunch break in between moving jobs? Say again? And not only that, he LIVES in the thing. His qualifications? He worked at a Barnes and Noble for four months in the self-help section. You heard right. No degree. Life is his qualification. On the other hand, he's affordable– especially for the uninsured.

The series follows this unpredictable friendship and how the two help one another in unforeseen ways-- while making you laugh. All Talk explores where we fit into this world when it becomes a place we no longer recognize (save for our all-too-familiar self-sabotaging antics).

 

With-- and only with--your help, All Talk will get out there in the world. As our audience (you!) grows and as we finish the last four episodes of our first season, we'll be weighing all of the exciting online distribution avenues and choosing one that gets our offbeat project in front of the masses.

We've assembled a rag tag crew of some of the hardest-working, best and brightest.    

 

 

 

Michael Tranzilli (Actor/Producer of All Talk) hails from Philadelphia’s Germantown. One winter, on a break from the family business (Tranzilli’s Real Italian Water Ice), he wandered into an acting class at the Walnut Street Theatre and the rest is history. He moved to NYC a week before 9/11 and has been toughing out life in the Big Apple ever since. Tranzilli is a member of the Drama Desk Award-winning The Godlight Theatre Company, and has appeared in many productions with them, most notably Fahrenheit 451, Blindness, Slaughterhouse Five, 1984 and The Pilo Family Circus. Astute viewers of daytime television may have seen Tranzilli on All My Children, The Young and the Restless and As the World Turns. He’d like to say he’s also been on Law & Order: Criminal Intent but alas, it remains a pipe dream.  

Read more about Michael on his website, Michaeltranzilli.com.

Jim Tierney (Writer/Producer of All Talk) has been writing plays since 2003, producing his own work in both New York and Los Angeles. In 2009, he was the winner of the Shotgun Theater Festival at the Gene Frankel Theatre. His two plays “Banshee of Bainbridge” and “Mush” were participants in the New York International Fringe Festival in 2010 and 2011. He took part in the Labyrinth Theatre’s One Act festival, where his play, “Broken Machine Love” was developed into a full-length play. In the summer of 2015, he was part of the Labyrinth Theatre Company’s Summer Lab. Jim holds a Bachelors of Science in Creative Writing from New School University and an MFA from NYU’s Tisch Shool of the Arts, Dramatic Writing Program. Almost entirely to spite his friend Michael Tranzilli, Jim Tierney has also appeared in Law & Order, even though he is not an actor.

If we raise the funds, All Talk will be in the van... er, in the can, that is, by the end of the year! That's how close we are! This (-) close! Not even. More like, this (.) close! We expect to have all post production finished no later than late February of 2018, at which point All Talk will make its debut on a world wide web near you.

We're proud to be shooting this series in the small towns of beautiful Sussex County, New Jersey. We wanted a place that felt remote while filled with a history that gives the feel of that all American town. We have some of the most gorgeous shots of all the very best that Sussex has to offer!

We've had the fortune of shooting in one of the most remarkable locations - the Sterling Hill Mine! You may recognize it from Zoolander. 

 

We've put together quite the slate of goodies for our illustrious supporters. Here are your options:

$10 - Website thank you and Facebook shout-out

$25 - Exclusive sneak preview access to the entire first episode of All Talk plus a limited edition postcard, printed from the beautiful hand-painted All Talk Poster by Tikki Suarez plus the above

Risks and challenges

Because we have already filmed eight episodes, because we are working with a tight-knit crew and because we are able to release this project independently, we are lucky in that once we make our goal, we are 100% certain that nothing will get in the way of completing season 1. So long as the international Yoo Hoo! markets remain stable (seriously, Jim has become dependent on the stuff) we have nothing to worry about!
