About

Set in Stonebarrow, Ohio, this show focuses on David Trembley and Hugh Browning, two high school students who have a lot more on their plate than passing Mr. Shitzke's English class.  

With one season of six episodes drafted and ideas floating around for season two, this show has been in the works for the past two and a half years. It started out as a feature film, but when creativity got the best of me, I decided it was best suited as a series so that we had enough time to explore the complexities of the characters and the story arch. '

Stonebarrow Killings is a slasher comedy that features a queer group of adolescents. It's so important to myself, and to many others that queer youth are shown in situations on TV that all other characters would be. Our main character is bisexual, which is so rarely seen in the media, and when we do see it, it's hardly ever done in a completely respectful and accurate way. There's also the opportunity for a non-binary character, which is sadly even more obscure.  

Though it has undoubtedly dark themes, the feel of the show is light and humorous. A dark comedy that takes place in 2017, in a town that's stuck in the 80s. 

What I'm asking for here, is for your help to make this show happen. It surprisingly costs money to pitch a show, and this one is particularly near and dear to my heart and will be with others who resonate with the characters. I've taken screenwriting courses and gone through many lessons to help with the project, so I am confident that when it's made it will be amazing. Unfortunately, I just do not have the funds to make it happen quite yet. Please give what you can and I will do everything in my power to get this pitched and/or created. Every little bit helps.

Thank you so much.

Risks and challenges

As it stands, the only foreseeable risk is being denied after pitching the project. However, if enough funds are raised, I have no doubt in my mind that the show will still be made in some way, as I am able to find connections thanks to my schooling at a performing arts college.
