THE 3 BITS is a queer web series about three siblings.

Henry Bits is the baby. He’s a twink and he’s in art school. Getting laid should be his job, but they aren’t hiring. Roman Bits is the middle child. She used to sell weed. Now she pulls them. Madison Bits is the oldest. You can watch her life fall apart on her blog.

What do the three Bits kids have in common? More than they think. They're intense, they all find themselves in outlandish situations we've cooked up, and their sex lives are as abnormal as, um, most people's sex lives are.  

We work with a talented cast and crew to make a show that is really special. You can watch the 9 episodes we've released so far at www.the3bits.com

Future episodes include a visit from the Westboro Baptist Church, spilled blood, bathroom cruising gone wrong, and cameos from some of our favorite porn stars! 

We are deeply grateful for your support. There's nothing like this show, and our characters have so many awkward adventures waiting for them! 

Indiewire gets it:

Help us combat the mainstream destruction of everything weird and wonderful! 

WHY $50,000?

The show looks so good because we hire talented professionals and rent professional equipment. It takes 3 weeks to shoot 9 episodes. So $50,000 will just pay for cost of production and the kickstarter rewards. 

If we double that, we can make 18 more episodes -- the whole first season!

OUR REWARDS ARE ON POINT

* The Mr. Pussy tee. 

BASIC: Screen-printed, athletic lettering on a slim cut tee (white tee with black lettering).

LUXE: Embroidered, athletic block lettering on a heavyweight tee (black tee with yellow lettering).

* The pillowcases. Sleep with one of the Bits every damn night.

* A print of this painting of Colby Keller by artist Robert Anderson (you may recognize the scene from Cockyboys' A Thing of Beauty):

* Or own a piece of the show with one of these kinky props:

Risks and challenges

Making a show like this is hard work! But once we have funding for the next round of episodes, we'll make a shooting schedule and move directly into production. And we'll keep you updated with regular emails and pictures from our set. Then you can join us at screenings of the new episodes this spring!

The rewards have already been designed and are ready to go. They'll be in the mail in early 2014.
