We are The Ghost Provokers, an online parody currently shooting our third episode. While other investigators wait quietly in the dark hoping to capture evidence of some unintelligible whisper, we prefer to "poke the ghost" and drag it kicking and screaming out into the light for all the world to see. Our science and investigative technique are so far ahead of our time--we're like the civil rights movement of the paranormal world, minus all that equality stuff!
Having already conquered the world famous Queen Mary ocean liner, our team's sights are now set on the historic Warner Grand Theater in San Pedro, California. There, we will attempt to make contact with spirits of famous stage actors and critics before properly bitch-slapping them back to hell where they belong. Let's face it--ghosts have no business hanging out with the living. They're just taking up valuable space and air.
(Note: Though were are a parody, we prefer to shoot in locations that are reportedly haunted. Both the Queen Mary and Warner Grand have a rich history of ghost sightings!)
The Warner Grand episode is already in progress. We are looking for $1500 to offset production and advertising costs. But don't think if we hit $1500 that we wouldn't want more! That would just be silly. Any excess funding will enhance special FX, fund additional costs for reshoots or be put toward more advertising.
As with the previous episodes, Ghost Provokers vs. Warner Grand will be approximately twenty-five minutes in length and go live on our website August 16th, 2011. We keep it this length with the aim of someday pitching it to cable or network TV. In the meantime, we continue to hone our craft in trying to provide the most entertaining experience possible for our fans--all twelve of them!
But hey, that's where YOU come in, right? You can not only pledge some cash and receive some fantastic rewards, but you can also help spread the word! Just lean over to the person next to you and say something like: "Have you heard of these Ghost Provokers guys?" They'll probably give you some kind of awkward glare, but if they DON'T walk away you can follow up and say: "Those guys are the bomb!" and then point them to our website...
Now, its important to note that you should NOT use the word "bomb" if you're having this conversation on an airliner or other mode of public transportation. We trust you'll use good judgement.
For now, that's it! Pick out your reward, and pledge! Seriously, you made it to the end of this paragraph and you're going to just close the browser? Not cool. Not cool at all. How would you learn about all the awesome rewards you could get by pledging? Go! Go now and enjoy the bountiful fruits laid out before you!
