The New Mayor of New York is an 8-part musical comedy web-series about roommates Nathan and Dylan and the campaign trail to get Nathan into office. This Kickstarter marks the beginning of our fake-political-campaign's real-fundraising-campaign to make this show a reality.

With your help, we can raise the funds for the proper equipment and software to produce an exciting web-series, loaded with song, dance, betrayal, politics, drama, and more!

If our goal is reached, we plan to begin principle photography on December 5, with a shooting schedule lasting up to 8 weeks. This would give us time to complete editing, mixing, and pick-ups for a mid-April premiere date. 

With your help, we can obtain the proper equipment to produce the killer quality Musical/Comedy web-series we want to share with the public. Nearly 80% of money raised will be going to rental of equipment for lights and sounds, with the rest going towards art and food (for the hardworking crew). If we are able to raise more than the minimum we have asked for, we will be able to create a better product and to treat our friends on set even better. So please, donate to the campaign.

AND! We also have some cool perks and rewards for our donors! Check out the list and also keep up to date with our progress by liking our Facebook page: Facebook.com/NewMayorOfNewYork

Also check out our website: NewMayorofNewYork.com and follow us on Twitter.

Thanks so much for your time, see you on the campaign trail!

Risks and challenges

Being Mayor is hard. It is a challenge and there are lots of risks involved. Crime and poverty and assassination among them. Fortunately, this is a fictional web-series with very few of those specific challenges and risks.
