Friends, Family, Fans –
Thank you for viewing our Kickstarter page. It is important that you know we consider you an invaluable member of the Kissing SisterHood and we offer our heartfelt gratitude and appreciation.
Everyone needs money (continuing education, children, high colonics, etc…). And we know that there are many worthwhile causes to which you could contribute. The Sisters are not working to cure a serious illness, reform our failing domestic education system or eradicate global poverty: we just want to make you laugh and make you forget whatever makes you sad. If you’re always happy, we want to make you even happier. That’s what we do. We create comedy. Comedy which we believe is funny, innovative, and, at least for us, intensely cathartic. We want to continue to make comedy, for a long, long time.
And that’d be awesome, but like a politician’s explanation of the economy, it’s just not that simple. You see, each of us has a day job that puts food on the table and fills our bellies with whiskey. Kissing Sisters is, at least for now, a side project for us. A second job. A labor of love. Unfortunately, despite being a heckuva lot of fun, at the moment Kissing Sisters doesn't make us much money.
Making this show is not cheap. We try our hardest to keep costs as low as possible, but still, creating a 26 minute episode, even on our comparably modest scale, is very expensive. We must rent lights, dolly tracks, cameras and other film equipment, secure municipal filming permits and pay for locations, hire crew, directors of photography and additional actors or actresses. We try our best to minimize costs, but still, to paraphrase Orson Welles, “this shit ain’t cheap.” The 5 Sisters happily pay for all of it, for us certainly, but especially for you. And we want to keep making ourselves and (hopefully) each of you laugh, but we need your help.
So please watch our Kickstarter Plea above, and feel free to watch the show’s intro sequence and some clips from Episode 1, and donate to the cause. Give as little as you can, or team up with some friends to chip in for a bigger incentive. And if you like what you see, tell your friends about us on Mr. Zuckerberg’s Book of Face, or on what Bill Cosby calls the Twittin and the Twottin, or just by writing them a personal email. We would be nothing without you guys, and this wouldn’t be any fun if we couldn’t keep on sharing it with you, so please give generously.
Risks and challenges
The biggest challenge is to deliver Episode 2 to our supporters in the most timely manner possible. With a shooting schedule spanning December 2012 and January 2013, the challenge will be to get Episode 2 to you, our fans, by May 2013. Like any production it will be an uphill battle but with Episode 1 under our belt, we're qualified to say that we will knock it out of the park.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
