About this project
About the Show
The Great Recession. A bad time to be a college graduate with a liberal arts degree. A bad time to be kinda unfocused, a little lazy, and unsure what you want to do with your life. But a good time to turn to crime.
This is a show about how hard it can be to take the easy way out. This is a show about being too smart for your own good, but not as smart as you think. These girls aren’t trying to make a dollar out of fifteen cents; they’re trying to make a million bucks out of thin air. How else does anyone make money in this world?
This show is steeped in the internet, in pop music, in social media. When you’re unemployed, probably unemployable and broke, all that’s left is being cool. Getting something in the Urban Dictionary means you were here. Getting enough likes on your selfie means you’re loved. Knowing the words to the latest summer jam means you belong. Being cool takes a lot of work. But when you’re not working...what else are you going to do?
And it’s not just these girls, either. The world around them is spinning a few degrees off-center. This is a world where the sanest person delivers pizza and weed. This is a world where giving an infant a Starbucks venti latte is appropriate parenting (or is it?). In a wacked-out world, being even more wack is the only reasonable response.
Welcome to Noisemaker Blues. Enjoy the ride.
Why We Need Your Support
We have an amazing cast and production team! The entire first season is written! We even have exciting new (yes, original) music being scored and recorded as you read this! But even with all of our expertise and thinking-outside-the-box-MacGyvering... some things just need money. Props, costuming, set dressing, equipment rental, and technical crew are needed in order to bring this world to life and deliver the quality that you, our viewers, deserve.
For $12,000 we can do this. There will be a great rough cut. But the more we can raise, the better Noisemaker Blues will be.
Our stretch goal of $25,000 will cover our cost to give the series a higher production quality. We will be able to rent better equipment, buy better food to feed great cast and crew (who are working virtually for free), pay for post-production, and produce a web-series that will make Network television spit take their old fashions.
Plus, we can enter festivals!
We have the passion. We have the talent. We have the skill. Now we need the resources.
Why You Should Support Us
Because we have sweet, sweet swag. But honestly, that’s to be expected, right? Check out the stuff on the right. They’re pretty awesome!
The real reason you should support us? You’re going to love this show! You’re going to quote the hell out of these characters. And not to get all Goonies on you, but this is our time! This show is about what it’s like right now trying to find our way in this world. It’s funny, it’s on point, it’s as quickly paced as a 140 character tweet! You need to support this project, because it is made for you.
Risks and challenges
The biggest risk we face is that it’s a web-series. Noisemaker Blues will thrive or perish based solely on the support of our audience. We are meeting this challenge with our collective experience. Jeremy Brown, Executive Producer, has worked his way up in Independent Film production in Development, Production, and Fundraising for over eight years. J. Holtham, Co-Executive Producer, is an Award-winning writer who has Produced and Developed several original works Off-Broadway and in Regional Theater venues. Josh Hsu, Director, has produced and directed a plethora of critically acclaimed Theater shows, and Developed short films. And Eric Navarrette, Associate Producer, works as a Marketing Director, writing copy and managing marketing campaigns for websites, shorts, and New Media projects. We got this!
We see New Media as the future of entertainment and we understand the importance of audience involvement. This is why we've created an interactive presence across several platforms. No matter what your poison, we’re there. Facebook? Done. Twitter? Follow us. Instagram? We’re there. Tumblr? What, do you think this is our first rodeo?! Of course we’re tumbling! We’re here for you. We’re talking to you. And more importantly... we're listening to you! So make some freaking NOISE!
