About this project
To all the fans who donated a big thank you! I've got some good news and bad news. The bad news it doesn't look like we're going to hit our goal which means you won't get any of the cool swag but the GOOD NEWS is with the help of Kenny, Spenny, the awesome trixstar company and yours truly we’ve worked out a way to cover the west coast tour.
It’s not the best case situation, resource will be limited and Im not sure how it’s going to get edited but if Spenny never gave up why should I! For all the fans who donated over $5 and didn't bail from the kickstarter campaign I'm going to give you guys a credit in the film even if we don’t hit our goal. Whatever title you want thats not already taken. Just send it to me through kickstarter.
Wish me luck…I’ll need it! Jamie
Welcome to the most epic road trip friendship extravaganza movie almost ever made!
The Kenny vs. Spenny On The Road Tour Documentary Kickstarter Campaign is about documenting these two cult legends on their KVS tour across Canada. Having worked with Kenny and Spenny for over 10 years I’ve convinced them to give me unrestricted access to the tour, themselves and the final cut! I’m going to be poking, prodding, manipulating and uncovering shit you couldn’t even imagine in your wildest wet KVS dreams. A road trip tour friendship extravaganza with dick jokes, fart jokes, drunken nights, insane fans, hot fans, dumb fans and shit that'll make you pee your pants.
The first leg of the tour has already been shot and there's some great footage but I need a cash infusion to finish the rest. March 31st is the first day of the WEST coast tour and will mark a journey from Vancouver through the prairies to Windsor! Because of my years of directing and shooting I’m able to keep cost down but flights and gear rental still comes with a price tag.
With this $46,000 campaign goal we'll be able to shoot the whole west coast tour, edit and deliver a pretty kick ass film BUT there's more tour locations and dates to come this year. So if we PASS OUR GOAL it’ll let us shoot more tours, more insanity and give more editing time to make this the most insane Kenny vs. Spenny documentary film ever!
So get out your credit cards and help me make Kenny vs. Spenny history!
What are you making?
A 60-minute documentary following Kenny and Spenny across the country on their Canadian tour.
Why are you making it?
Because I know that the insane fans and these two will make for endless entertainment gold. Plus if you couldn’t get tickets it’s the next best thing to sticking to the boys and checking out the show!
How are you making it?
We are shooting with a very small crew, one to two people at times. Keeping cost low so we can get'r done. It'll be shot in HD for those vivid colours and edited using a blind midget with no arms!
When will it be finished?
The tour will take place over the next few months and editing has already begun. I expect to have a finished edit by December but it will be entered into film festivals and I’ll be trying to get as much reach as possible which may delay the public release beyond that but any donator will be informed as we go and I’ll make sure your not left dark as to when your getting your hands on a copy!
You're the guy who pumped air into Kenny’s ass, I don't trust you can make it?
Sure, but pumping air is just one of my many talents. Last year I was nominated for producing in the best comedy category at the CSA’s Canada’s largest award ceremony. As well I’ve directed and shot countless commercials and short docs--some have even gone onto festivals and to win awards! I also own SOAK--a creative production company where you can see a range of my commercial work.
If you still have any questions don’t hesitate to ask but the biggest hurdle won’t be if I can pull it off but how epic we can make it this!
Risks and challenges
The fundamental risk is that I kill both Kenny and Spenny during the tour and this film never gets made but if that happens it'll be a totally different film which might be even more awesome!
In all honesty the biggest challenge is raising the money to make something like this. If we can crack this campaign then the biggest hurdle is over, short of me dropping dead I'll be bending over backwards making this film happen!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Yes! Now everyone who spends $25 or more will get an end credit.
When the campaign ends we'll send out a survey to gather all the names and titles. So far I've seen some pretty insane titles, you guys are sickos! I love it.
You will get the tiniest, smallest, itty bitty, miniscule-est feeling that you barely contributed to KVS history but the film will get made if everyone chips in for this! After stealing all of their shows online and for all the laughs they gave you for years…you should be ashamed of yourself for only giving $5. I need it though so send it!Estimated delivery:Ships anywhere in the world
