It’s been some time, but the cult hit “Fear of Girls” is back! And with your Kickstarter support the epic-level lives of Doug Douglason and Raymond Ractburger will not only be expanded into the fourth episode of “Fear of Girls”, but help us get traction to complete the full thirteen episode arc of the series!
Have you ever been in the midst of a heated role-playing campaign and suddenly your barbarian screams “Mercy?!? You wanted Mercy?!? I’m CHAOTIC NEUTRAL!!!”? Or perhaps your diabolic plans to deceive your GM go awry and he says “You can’t backstab the Gamemaster.” right before TPKing your entire family? Or even used the random “Vampires aren’t even evil. Football players are.”?
Welcome to the world of “Fear of Girls”! Ever since the first episode blasted onto the Interwebs in 2006, the series has rolled itself into gamer lexicon and hearts of fans alike. Throughout the series we've followed the lives of our two oath sworn PLP (Platonic Life Partners) – Elite Gamemaster Doug Douglason and his 8th level barbarian muse Raymond Ractburger.
Three episodes deep our all-too-aware heroes attempt to navigate their treacherous, if not hilarious, daily lives while maintaining their unwavering commitment to their fantasy world. Now, years later we’re looking to finish the job we started and complete the series… and it begins with Episode 4.
It’s an ageless tale of when age meets rage, and the conflict that arises when games collide. With their wits and patience pushed into the red, Doug & Raymond battle for control over not only their gaming table, but the rights of role-playing gamers everywhere!
This planned 10-15 minute episode will prove to not only be an hysterical extension of the series, but will bring back our beloved characters as the fans love to see them – rolling dice and taking names!
More to be announced SOON!
Launched in early 2006 on Google Video, the first episode of “Fear of Girls” started with a mere 30 views the first day of posting and exploded into millions over the next few weeks. Watch it here:
“Fear of Girls” became a genuine viral hit, and it wasn’t long until it attracted the attention of Hollywood agents and studios. The exclusivity rights of the extended series was optioned by Disney (through ABC Family) to launch a new “Comedy Incubator” initiative, and in return the studio would fund the next episode of the series. “Fear of Girls: Episode 2” finished production in August 2006 and we eagerly awaited the launch of the Incubator.
And we waited... And we waited some more.
Over a year since we completed the second episode the Incubator never launched and the rights reverted back to our control. We promptly launched our Youtube.com channel and posted the 2nd episode – Which you can watch here:
We were determined to continue the series and in 2008 we launched the third episode on our Youtube.com channel…
...Erroneously splitting the episode into three parts. However, you may watch the fully restored episode below:
Why hasn’t there been a new episode in years? Well, we determined it’s impossible to maintain the series financing an episode every few years – that’s where Kickstarter comes in. We realize enough time has passed that we may need to “re-introduce” ourselves, and as this is our first Kickstarter we didn’t want to shoot for the moon and attempt to fund the entire season.
In short, let us blow the dice out of your pants with the next episode or few episodes of the FoG series and we’ll be back…
And this time it won't take years!
Risks and challenges
We are convinced that the forces of the universe are constantly conspiring not only against us, but all filmmakers, artists, and brave souls attempting to create, entertain, and inspire. Fortune favors the well-prepared, but even the well prepared can only react to plague, locusts, fire, brimstone and, of course, falling skies.
That being said our team is comprised of industry production professionals. Collectively we have hundreds of projects under our belt and have earned a great reputation for putting out amazing work under tight time and budgetary constraints. We hold ourselves to the highest level of integrity, not only personal integrity but the integrity of our projects as well - we do everything we can to make certain that time, talent, and resources are never wasted on a Dangerously Adorable Production.
Regarding the production of Episode 4 - if we succeed with this Kickstarter campaign we have a soft date of December 2013 to start production. However, this date could move up or out a month or two depending on scheduling and production details. After the project is in the can, we predict a quick post-production turnaround of no more than 30 days.
