Now that you've seen the first episode, what is Two Naked Gay Guys?
Two Naked Gay Guys follows the growing relationship between Lucas and Dean as they try to navigate their feelings for each other and how that then has a rippling impact on the relationships of the friends and family around them.
Throughout the series we examine themes of love, intimacy, honesty, sexuality, and relationships. When does a relationship truly start? When does a relationship truly end?
We have fifteen episodes planned in total for the series. However instead of seeking funding for all fifteen we want to let the audience decide how much they want to see.
With seed funding from the Emerging Artists Trust we were able to shoot the first four episodes and fully produce episode one.
The $8500 we're asking for is the remainder we need to complete production of the three episodes we have shot.
But that's just the beginning. An average episode of Two Naked Gay Guys costs around $4000 to produce. For each $4000 we raise above the initial $8000 we will produce another episode.
Upon completion of the Kickstarter campaign we will release the next three episodes in May 2016 and plan to begin shooting the additional episodes in June 2016 for launch in August.
Each time we hit a $4000 milestone, we will unlock another episode for production. Here are the first four milestones. Once we hit $28,000 total funding, we'll reveal the next four goals.
So now you know a bit more about the series and what we have planned, but what about who we are? Two Naked Gay Guys draws upon a talented pool of emerging talent. Here are just some of the people involved in the making of our show talking about the project in their own words.
We'd also like to thank Love Your Condom for helping spread the word about our show and letting us use their packaging in the series. Check the link below for more information about the awesome work that LYC do.
We also would like to thank Hornet Dating App for helping spread the word about our project!
While obviously a witty, fun, sexy webseries is a reward all in of itself, we do want to show our gratitude for helping back the show as well! As such we have a number of great rewards on offer for backers.
Backers who pledge $20 or more will get links to the series a month ahead of public release on YouTube. This doesn’t mean you get the rough cut of the episode. You will get first viewing of all completed episodes a month in advance via our Vimeo channel.
Downloads from Vimeo
Episodes will be sold for digital download via Vimeo on Demand. Backers from $50 up will get a download code that allows them to download the series for themselves as well as streaming access.
Limited Edition Postcards
As part of the Kickstarter campaign we will print limited edition postcards of our promotional poster. These will include a thank you note on the back.
A bound copy of the first four scripts will be signed by creator, Conan McKegg, and sent out to all backers who pledge $250 or more.
Names in the Series
In future episodes Lucas and Anna will occasionally mention their ex partners. Pledges of $1000 will allow backers to offer a name to be included. Note that this will require approval from the show runner. We don’t want any “Tits McGee” type names.
Walk on / Skype Role
Backers who pledge $5000 or more will get the opportunity to play a walk on role in one of the upcoming episodes. If you are unable to get to Wellington, we will instead include you in a scene with Cam as he Skypes with his friends.
Risks and challenges
So what are the Risks and Challenges we may face?
Time. The biggest factor in shooting a webseries is in scheduling time and running out of time.
Because we have already shot four episodes and completed editing of the first, we have not only an idea of how much time we need to produce an episode but have been able to identify and improve our processes.
We have already started planning for a June shoot for the additional episodes and currently the scripts are undergoing development and review within the Sandpit Workshop.
We also have the support of the Emerging Artists Trust as a provider of mentors and resources to help us meet deadlines.
We feel that our first episode shows that we have the experience, talent, and skill to deliver a fun, sexy, and thoughtful series.
Already we are preparing to hit the ground running at the end of this campaign to be able to promptly deliver a professional and fun webseries that you'll not soon forget.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
