Hi! Welcome to the official Kickstarter for Bitter Strippers. We appreciate you checking out our project!

What is Bitter Strippers?

Bitter Strippers is a short comedy pilot created, written, produced and directed by Paige Devitt and Lindsay Golder. It follows a broke twentysomething whose world falls apart when she gets passed over for her dream job as a Women's Studies scholar. In an effort to drown her sorrows in a sea of alcohol, she finds herself at Daddy Issues Gentlemen's Club, where she decides to support the feminist cause in a new way: by being a stripper.

Sounds awesome! How can I help?

You can help us by donating to our project. We still have a significant financial burden that is preventing us from completing post-production. Even a few of your spare dollars will make a huge difference and help us reach our goal. 100% of all money donated will go to our project.

Why should I help a couple of dumb girls make their dumb pilot?

Because there aren't enough young female voices represented on television today. We want to change that - one stripper story at a time.

Risks and challenges

Making television isn't easy. Once our project is funded, we will still be faced with the various obstacles that come with producing a pilot.

Post-production, for example, involves editing, color correction, scoring, and digital effects, all of which will involve time, patience, and decision-making. Inevitable sound issues make ADR (additional dialogue recording) essential to producing high-quality work, but it also requires our actors and production sound mixer to be willing to come together to make it happen. Luckily, everyone in our cast and crew is enthusiastic about making our project the best it can be.

Because we have such a great team of talented professional actors and crew members working with us for no pay, we need to work around their schedules as they have school, families, and in many cases, paying gigs. We are doing everything we can to accommodate them, because they're undeniably awesome.

There are still many challenges ahead, but because we are strong, passionate, hard-working storytellers, we will work together to overcome each and every one of them.
