Boyz on Top is a 6 part mockumentary that follows fictional boyband, Boyz on Top, as they attempt to make an ill-advised comeback - over 10 years after their one minor hit, “Poster Boyz” flopped in the charts.

Spurred on by other boyband reunions, delusional lead singer - Dylan St. James - attempts to round up his old bandmates for one last desperate attempt at fame. He must overcome a number of obstacles along the way - such as turbulent relationships, the other guys moving on, and the band’s shoestring budget. Not to mention the fact that nobody is calling for this particular boyband reunion.

Can Dylan, Deco, Charlie and Tom get back on top? Or are they destined to stay in the folklore of forgotten boybands of the noughties…

Why this project?

Boyz on Top has been a long-standing passion project of Sam and I. After endless finessing, countless rewrites, and a lot of hard work, we are finally ready to launch the project. With the help of Failsafe Productions and a strong cast on board, we’re confident the time is right to make Boyz on Top a thing that exists in the real world, and not just our heads.

All help and donations are greatly appreciated, and will help make the Boyz on Top dream come true.

Where's the money going?

Creating a web series is EXPENSIVE. We'll be putting our own money into it too, as 8k is the minimum we could possible make it for. Below is a breakdown of what the funds will go towards:

  • Insurance 
  • Locations 
  • Production Design 
  • Camera, Lighting and Sound Equipment 
  • Hair, Make-Up, Wardrobe
  • Catering for Crew
  • PR & Marketing 
  • Post Production

Risks and challenges

This is a massive undertaking for us and everyone involved. It's a complete passion project, It will involve taking a large amount of time off work, working weekends and late nights, asking lovely people to give their time for free, calling in favours wherever we can, investing a chunk of our savings, along with money raised here.

We would not be doing this if we did not believe in it. We've been writing it for over 3 years, it is our mission to see it through.
