Stretch Goal! - $7,000

We've hit our goal with time still on the clock, so now we're pushing for more. If we hit our stretch goal it means that we can afford more graphics to enhance how cool the future looks. Also we can get permits to shoot in better places in NYC like Central Park, and we can rent better equipment, especially cameras. And we can hire a consistent production crew, which will speed up the over all process of filming.  

We're going to be stretching ever dollar to get as much out of it as possible, so every extra dollar we receive will be a huge help. Please help us reach our new goal to make this show even better!

Update: 

The Gigahoes team took out our sexy actresses to the streets of NYC to ask more people about what they would do with a sex-bot. 

The Show

Sex-bots have been talked about and featured in other shows and movies about robots, but they’ve never been explored, and never as a comedy. Gigahoes is a mockumentary, set in the future, that follows the escort agency, Artificial Intercourse, as they try to deal with the changing business landscape as new, better, and cheaper sex-bots are released.

Each episode is about 8 mins long and follows A.I.’s sex-bots out on their calls with their eccentric clients and the sexual hilarity that ensues. This show is a robot sex comedy, so yes there will be sex, or the type of sex you’d see on FX, or AMC. Tasteful semi-nudity in tasteless situations.

Goals 

We believe that we can shoot and produce all 12 episodes for $5000. We’ll be calling in favors, borrowing everything we can, and a lot of us will be working for free. But the stuff we can’t beg, borrow, or steal, we’re going to have to buy. 

Our goal is shoot the series this spring/summer, with a weekly release schedule this fall.

The Team 

Writers: Adam Lash & Kevin Gilligan - Adam and Kevin are both comedy nerds and just straight up nerds. 

Adam is a standup comic that has worked on The Daily Show, was seen on HBO, and was part of the New York Comedy Festival. Adam became a nerd at 5 years old when his father introduced him to Star Wars, he then watched it everyday for a month. Since then, he has read almost every EU Star Wars book ever published, has a healthy Manga obsession, loves Doctor Who, and is a fan of the movie Man of Steel (despite it’s many flaws).

Kevin has performed improv and sketch comedy all over New York City including UCB, the PIT, the Magnet Theatre, and Gotham Comedy Club.  Kevin was introduced into Marvel comics by a friend growing up and like any drug, he was hooked. Since then, he cried when his parents sold his He-Man action figures at a yard sale for next to nothing (he had already left college at this point), he is a board member of the group Geeks OUT, and is a Supergirl the Movie apologist.

Director: Jason Messina

Jason is a writer, director, editor, and performer living in NYC. He grew up in NJ, in a town much like Haddonfield, IL, spending his summers building fleeting friendships at Camp Crystal Lake, and wintering in Antarctica with Kurt Russell and Keith David (at least he assumes it was them). When he wasn't watching horror movies, or preparing to write this bio, he was laughing hysterically at James Brown trying to enter a hot tub. He performs regularly around NYC with his sketch group Unisex, and works producing video content for PIT TV. Find more of his work at youtube.com/jmsalad and @surethingchief.

Producers: KL Thomas

She is the executive producer of Sketch Block the Live Show and the Creator/Host of the Sketch Block Podcast. In 2013, KL and Sharon Jamilkowski (I’ve Got Munchies) Produced the New York City Premier of Jenn Dodd’s solo production 'No Show: A One Woman Show' at Stage Left Studios. KL was also the Special Guest for the PITCast’s coverage of the People’s Improv Theater’s 2nd Annual New York City Sketch Festival and Special Guest for “A Night Out” with the PinUp Squirrels. She loves 'The Walking Dead', is giant horror movie buff, her favorite Winchester brother is Dean, and she's worked at New York Comic Con for years. She hangs out in artist alley whenever she can.

Where the Money Goes

All the money we raise will go towards locations, equipment, props, crew, food, PR, and covering some of the incentives we will provide to you, our supporters.

We also need funds to cover our post-production costs. As this is set in the future, we want it to look futurey, not J.J. Abrams and his lens flares, or crazy 3-D Avatar type future stuff. But good enough After Effects and graphics to feel like you’ve gotten your money’s worth.

The more money we raise the better the project will be; better post production, better lighting, over all better production value.

Please check out all of our incentives and if you’re feeling generous please donate.

If you feel the need, you can make it rain on us. This is a show about robot whores after all.

This show is going to be awesome, but we can't do it without supporters like you. We're like PBS, but with robot sex.

We’d really appreciate it.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact us at gigahoes@gmail.com.

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk we have is that most of us working on this project, from the actors to the crew, are all working professionals in our fields. We are doing this web series because we feel passionate about comedy and the story we are telling. If we can afford to pay everyone, we will, but that all depends on if we fulfill our campaign goal and/or surpass it. Otherwise, we have to work around a lot of schedules to film this and have it ready by the fall for weekly installments.

One of our other challenges is filming in NYC itself. We’ve written the script as to try to minimize location costs, but there will be a couple episodes that we can’t beg a friend to film in their apartment. We will need to secure some locations like a clothing store, and an alleyway, in order to bring our commanding vision to light.
