About this project

We are seeking $16,000 in funding to help us film the Pilot Episode of "ADVENTURE CAPITAL"

Inspired by Meredith Wilson's "The Music Man", Oliver Stone's "Wall Street", & the loyal Fan following of J.K. Rowling's "Harry Potter" Series

If you like Quidditch this project will be right up your alley.

THE STORY

When Hale Hill gets fired from his cushy Wall Street analyst job for reckless investing, his finances and reputation are thrown into jeopardy. But rather than seek employment with a new firm, Hale decides to forge his own path. His latest venture: Swindling a group of self-proclaimed Nerds who play SQUIMIG!

Squimig is a "magical" sport based on the popular "World of Warlox" fantasy novel series. Led by Team Captain Geryon, the Westside Warlox (Neak, Kalyke, Sajar, Anunnaki, Lise and Iamb), and other diehard nerds, live out their fandom casting spells and scoring goals in New York's Central Park. What Hale sees is a potential gold mine!

On the road to "legitimizing" Squimig as a Professional Sport, Hale and his business partner Rose have to navigate the complexities of Nerd Culture. Can they keep Team Warlox in line? Can they hope to stay unattached from these endearing Fanboys and Fangirls? Or will they manage to pull the wool over everyone's eyes and run with the profits? Only the dreaded Lord Nord knows for sure!

THE COMMUNITY 

At the end of the day, funding for our pilot hinges entirely on the success of this Campaign. As our donors, you are our first Fans and we are eager to show our thanks. We have created several exclusive rewards available only through Kickstarter. Additionally, we're utilizing social media to bring our followers all the latest production updates including interviews, casting news, and "in world" marketing from the characters of "Adventure Capital".

And, of course, the incomparable Sam Ogilvie as Iamb. We literally shot outdoors in 20 degree weather. Thanks for being such a trooper.

Risks and challenges

As with all artistic endeavors, there are always setbacks and challenges: Inclement weather, technical problems, unruly actors... We have budgeted for contingencies in the event that we experience problems during the production.

Our promise to you is that we will communicate anything that could directly impact the final product.
