A note from Chris Dorman
Welcome friends and families, new and familiar, to our Kickstarter Campaign Page! Wow! It feels amazing to write these words! We have been dreaming up this adventure for some time now!
It was over a year ago when we first sat down together in Colchester, VT at the Vermont PBS Studios to discuss the idea of a new Live Action Children's Television Show!
The dream we shared was to create a wholesome family program based in Vermont that could use music and visuals to illuminate the simple beauty we see all around us. We see that beauty in the natural and working Vermont Landscape, we see it in the families who've grown up and settled here, and we see it most vividly in our children.
And now, we have an opportunity to make this dream come true!! We would like to invite you to be involved right from the very beginning!
Please take a moment to dig in to the rewards on our campaign page! At each Backer Level you will receive incredible goodies related to the new show, music from Mister Chris & Friends, Vermont PBS swag as well as special items from Community Partners.
Remember, each and every Backer will help us to reach our goal of $27,500! The funds needed to create a Pilot Episode of our new show!!
A note from Vermont PBS
Vermont PBS has always been a trusted, safe place for children with our wholesome, educational programming.
We're also in the middle of an initiative that helps us bring more local content to Vermont PBS in an effort to differentiate ourselves and better serve the interests of our viewers.
This project allows us a unique opportunity to bring these two important pieces of our mission together. With the help of Chris Dorman, local musician and early childhood educator, we're hoping to create a live action children's show that reflects the Vermont ethos of getting outside, exploring the world, and being a life-long learner.
PBS is the most trusted media brand in the country, due in large part to the role we play with the families of young children. We hear over and over from parents that they feel comfortable walking out of the room when Vermont PBS is on, because they know their children will not be exposed to anything not appropriate- in fact, they will be learning. And we are in a unique position to bring more Vermont to Vermont PBS through partnerships with local creative people like Chris Dorman. This new show will bring the very best of Vermont into an already strong lineup of children's programming.
Risks and challenges
Our long-term vision for this project is to create an entire children's series. However, one risk of this project is that we never get past the pilot. Our intention is to demonstrate to funders (such as underwriting parters and major donors) that this pilot can be transformed into a season-long series. Funding the pilot is the best way to demonstrate that our community wants and values this programming.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
