Funding Unsuccessful

This project's funding goal was not reached on June 25, 2012.

Follow the personal trainers of Allen's Fit World as they deal with their clients, the fitness world, and themselves.

About this project

"Trainers" is a mockumentary webseries that follows a group of personal trainers at a fitness gym called ALLEN'S FIT WORLD.  It follows the similar format as "The Office" and "Parks and Rec" as it takes the audience behind the scenes of a place most of us know of -- the gym. 

Below is the pilot episode "Is it hard?".  We invite you to watch and enjoy and laugh -- because, let's be honest, a lot of what happens in the gym is hilarious and a just a bit absurd.

Here's episode 2!!!

Allen's Fit World even has a website!  It features all the episodes, characters, and production info.  Check it out here and pass it on to your friends!!! www.allensfitworld.com 

(For the "Featured Backer" a nice round sticker.  Great for putting on bumpers, laptops, and school books!)

Currently, we've filmed the first two episodes.  We want to film ten more for a full 12-episode season.  The first two episodes were graciously done "on spec" by the majority of the cast and crew.  For the remainder of the season, we'd like to pay them for their hard work, time, and equipment.

(One of our t-shirt designs for our "Lead Backers".  They're fun, fresh, and fabulous.  Wear them to the gym, to work, to the bars, wherever you go!)

Our budget breakdown covers paying for cast and crew; equipment and space rental; transportation; post-production services (editing, VFX, etc); and the "unforeseeable" (last minute light-bulbs, memory cards, etc).  

We've compiled a list of funding levels and rewards that hopefully sparks your interest.  On behalf of the Cast, Crew, and Production itself, we invite you to take a look and fund what you can.  Enjoy!
