Season 2 of the show that proved comedy could be hot! A surprise decision for Alex & his friends change in ways he didn't see coming.

Hunting Season is a smash hit comedy/drama TV series that was made for the web.  It launched in September 2012 to a lot of acclaim, attention, press, and social media love.  

We are now getting ready to shoot SEASON 2!  Nearly a million views later, our fans have spoken and it's time to make more.  

Alex will face challenges in Season 2 that make him question his true goals, and test him in ways he didn't expect.  Tommy, TJ, and the whole cast of characters will grow and change and the show will go deeper into their  relationships and their lives.  Season 1 was just the beginning -- wait til you see what we've got in store for you next! 

Jon Marcus, the creator of the show, paid for Season One out of his own savings, and then he borrowed the money to finish to show.  We sold enough downloads to pay back the loans, but he can't pay for any more of the series himself. 

We made a successful licensing deal with the gay cable network Logo to launch season 1, but they were not able to find sponsorship to pay for more episodes.  We have been knocking on doors for a year in the traditional, old-media financing style, but the time has come to embrace new models and we come to you on Kickstarter to ask for help. 

THE ONLY WAY WE CAN MAKE ANOTHER SEASON IS WITH YOUR HELP.

This is a professional production, and we pay our actors and crew just enough not to have to work other jobs for the day.  But it takes a lot of people to make the show look this good and we are asking for a lot of money from you.  So we need as many people to give as possible.  

We are constantly being compared to other TV shows which cost millions of dollars to produce.  We are very flattered, and hope to be able to bring you the same high quality at a budget that our fans can afford to support. 

$150,000 is the minimum we need to make another season the same length as Season 1: 8 episodes about 12 minutes each.  We have lots of characters, lots of locations, great music, and a rich and varied world of New York that we capture on camera.  Kickstarter and Amazon Payments will take 10% of that, another 10% will go to fulfilling the awesome rewards we will give you guys for contributing to the campaign.  Another 10% will  goes to insurance and legal stuff that we are required do and we will have just about 100K left to make the show, which is about 10% equipment, 10% feeding our cast & crew, paying a whole lot of people (almost 100) a very tiny amount to work on the show.  We don't want to bore you with details but we know what we're doing and we spend very little money on a whole lot of things.  

If we go over our goal, we can start to make the episodes longer, and make  more of them -- it all depends on how many of you help us and how much money you can afford to give us!  

Think about how much money you spend to treat yourself, and then SPLURGE ON US! 

Also, if you do give, please help us more by asking your friends to give too.  Small contributions from a lot of people add up faster than large ones! 

Most importantly, thank you for your support.  Making a show like this brings us very close to our fans and we feel like we know some of you, so thanks for everything you do!  We're excited to bring you more HUNTING SEASON.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Making an independent production is always hard, especially in New York. We only work with experienced professionals to make the most out of our budget.

We've also come up with some great rewards for you guys that we're so excited to send out. Be patient with us though, we are all experts at making TV and this is the first time we've ever run a merchandise and shipping project! :)

Anything and everything can still go wrong, from weather to any kind of emergency, but we have a track record of delivering! But remember, we are a very small team, not a big studio, so whatever happens we will be going through it with you! And we promise to keep in touch with you about every bit of progress!

Thank you for believing in and supporting the show!

VIP events will be held in New York City. You are responsible for your own transportation and accommodations but we will make sure you have a good time!

FAQ

  • PLEASE DO NOT DECREASE YOUR PLEDGE!! We are begging you! In the final hours of the campaign we will do anything to entice you to back us with as much as you can.

    We would love you to increase your pledge by $25, which will entitled you to get BOTH the old reward AND the new one! Everybody is doing it, and we know why you increased by $25, so we'll make sure you get the goods!
