Embrace the Spoilers: Winter Movie Season 2016-2017
Embrace the Spoilers continues with Jocelyn Moffett and Garrett Weinzierl spoiling multiple movies this Winter season!
We have been creating Embrace the Spoilers off and on for a good part of 2016. With the Winter movie season upon us we'd like to be more regular about our podcast schedule.
If you are new to Embrace the Spoilers it is a semi-regular podcast where we get together to spoil usually nerdy shows and games. Past topics have included Game of Thrones, Star Wars, Warcraft, and other summer movies. And if you really are new here, welcome! Go check out past episodes.
Nov. Doctor Strange Fantastic Beasts Dec. Rogue One Assassin’s Creed Jan. Underworld: Blood Wars Resident Evil Feb. Lego Batman Dark Tower Our base goal is to cover eight of the nerdiest movies that are coming out from November through February!
November: Doctor Strange & Fantastic Beasts
December: Rogue One & Assassin’s Creed
January: Underworld: Blood Wars & Resident Evil: The Final Chapter
February: The Lego Batman Movie& The Dark Tower
Small portions of this Kickstarter will go towards our costs in making the podcast (hosting and movie tickets). But the majority of the funds will work as our paycheck for our time invested into these episodes. As many of you are aware making podcasts take time and we have been finding ourselves with a lack of excess recording time. This Kickstarter will allow us to put aside other projects to make time for this.
Thank you in advance for any and all support. 2016 will wrap our first year creating content full time and it would not have been possible without the generous support of our backers and Patrons!
$1350: Cover more movies
We’ll add Trolls, xXx: Return of Xander Cage and two movies chosen by our backers.
$2000: Cover the gap to Summer
We’ll continue covering movies in March and April to bridge the gap between the Winter and Summer movie seasons.
March: Kong: Skull Island, Beauty and the Beast, Power Rangers, Ghost in the Shell
April: Fast 8
$3000: Embrace the Stinkers
We’ll review movies we’re pretty sure we’ll hate! Fifty Shades, Smurfs , and our backers can vote for 2 additional “bad” movies.
$4000: Video version plus livestreamNot doing Embrace the Spoilers live and with video makes our scheduling and mornings way easier than most other podcasts that we do. But we hit this goal we’ll be glad to get up early and get pretty for the camera every time we record an episode!
Risks and challenges
Garrett and Jocelyn have podcasted together for over three years, created hundreds of episodes in that time, and have already made seventeen episodes of Embrace the Spoilers with more for Westworld on the way. Keep in mind is that these podcasts will be opinion pieces and the subject matter of these films will cause different tones in the podcast. By backing Embrace the Spoilers you are acknowledging that episodes may not always be positive, may not always be negative, and may contain strong language.
Due to their schedules they may have to record an episode further out from the release of a film than anticipated. This Kickstarter is a commitment to review each listed film within a week of release. The Wednesday following each film's release is the goal. Dr. Strange being the biggest obstacle as Jocelyn and Garrett will be returning from BlizzCon the weekend it releases. But they can't wait to see Marvel's latest movie, so they'll get that out ASAP.
It is also possible that Jocelyn or Garrett may have an unexpected life event come up that keeps them from recording on schedule. They have been known to get sick from time to time and family emergencies can arise. If this occurs, they will either reschedule for a later time within the same week or bring in a guest host from the Amove podcasting family.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
