How do superheroes deal with branding? What's it like interviewing for a henchman position? META answers these questions and more!
In most comic books, we follow the adventures of heroes as they defend cities, countries, planets or even the universe. One moment they're fighting off an alien invasion and the next moment they're foiling the schemes of a nefarious villain. But what happens between the adventures?
In Mildly Exciting Tales of Astonishment (or META -- awesome, right?), we follow the misadventures of a group of heroes as they deal with the absurd, mundane tasks that plague us all. In META, you'll learn how heroes must be conscious of their branding, why it's not the best idea to build your secret lair under the subway system, what happens when a super mom has to find a decent daycare facility and what it takes to interview for the position of henchman. And you might just learn a little bit about yourself along the way. But probably not.
Our goal is $10,000 for 16 episodes but that's our baseline. Raising more money will translate into higher production values for the series as a whole. We are dedicated to making wise use of all funds contributed to the project. We want each character and set to have a distinct look that helps define the universe of META.
The more we receive from this campaign the better our series will be. We've got big dreams and bigger jokes we're ready to share. Thanks!

The biggest challenges I face are organizational -- coordinating the schedules of cast and crew is a daunting task and keeping up with all the details can be overwhelming. To that end, I have enlisted the help of Sara Holton Gard as my assistant director and producer. Sara has extensive experience in the management side of theatrical and video productions. She has already proven herself indispensable.
Other challenges include props and costumes. Fortunately, I have an extensive network of costumers, prop builders, makeup artists, stunt performers and special effects experts.
