The Upside of Down is a web series that Tamara and I created about a year ago. It’s about a regular guy named Ryan who thinks he has it all: a good job, a nice house and a sexy girlfriend. But then all of those things blow up in his face, and he is forced to move in with his wacky brother Matt. Ryan soon learns that having it all means nothing, if it doesn't make you happy.
Unfortunately for Ryan, his journey towards acceptance is a long one. As soon as he arrives at his brother's apartment he realizes what a completely different lifestyle Matt is living. With no job, a messy apartment, no running water, and a wacky crew of neighbors and roommates, it seems that all of Ryan's beliefs are being challenged. But maybe you can just blow off a whole day and turn everything into a game and maybe there is love waiting for Ryan amidst the chaos. Either way, this is a story of all the upsides to your life being turned upside down.
The series so far has three episodes, which have been incredibly well received. People love the show and just keep asking for more episodes. Since we had so much fun making them, and the show is already such a success we decided that we wanted to continue on and finish the season. We’ve got nine more episodes written and ready to film once we can get the funding to pull them off.
The first three episodes were the first project that Tamara and I have ever written or produced. We did it on a shoestring budget and came out with something really incredible. It shows that passion and hard work make things happen, so if we are able to actually have funding for these next episodes the sky is the limit to what we can achieve.
This whole experience though is really about a bunch of people following their dreams. Everyone involved is working as hard as we can to make our careers happen, and for us this is a way to create the kind of project and opportunity we want to be a part of instead of waiting for it to be handed to us. We are all so passionate about what we do and so excited to get our work seen. Thank you in advance for helping us to achieve success!
Risks and challenges
When it comes to creating a series there are always risks and challenges. But that is part of the fun. Because the first time around we were totally new to writing and producing, and we had almost no budget and were able to pull off what we did, I have no doubt that we will continue to accomplish all we set out to do. When issues or obstacles come up we usually just have a little mini meeting, discuss what needs to happen and move forward. With such a talented cast and crew I know that there is no challenge too large to stop us from making what we set out to create.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
