INTRODUCTION

Do you have a love for classic Doctor Who as much as we do? Then please help us bring Doctor Who: The Classic Series Regenerated to life! This planned series of full-length adventures, produced by fans, is for everyone who would enjoy seeing more live-action adventures based on the “Classic Series”.

This is not an official Doctor Who production. We do not claim any rights to concepts or characters of Doctor Who and is entirely a not-for-profit production. The Doctor Who: CSR team respectfully and graciously wants to say “Thank you!” to the BBC for understanding the passion fans have for this series and for allowing creative outlets for fan-based, non-profit productions of all types.

WHO WE ARE

Temporal Orbit Films, LLC., is a dedicated group of both people with years of creative film, video, theater, and writing experience and some first time volunteers looking to gain production experience. All of have one thing in common. A love of classic Doctor Who and passion for film making and the creative process.

OUR GOAL

You might be asking why we’re attempting this venture while there is new “official” Doctor Who being produced as we speak. Good question.

While the “New Series” of Doctor Who is awesome and enjoyable in its own right, we’re sure that there are many fans, like us, who miss the style of storytelling style of classic Doctor Who.

Currently, our productions will be based around 4th Doctor/Sarah Jane Smith era with one goal in mind. That is, to produce stories as close as we can that have the tone, characterization, the look and “the feel” of the Classic Series. We want to create productions that you would watch and at the end think that it legitimately came out of the BBC studios, circa the 1970s.

OUR FIRST STORY

Our first story, "Season of Terror", is a planned 3-parter (25 minutes each). The basic synopsis goes like this: Imagine the current trend of the Doctor Who Christmas Special done as Philip Hinchcliffe would have done it back in 1976. The Doctor and Sarah Jane investigate a series of child abductions in a small English village and discover the terrifying truth to the alpine legend of Krampus, the Christmas Devil.

We have many other story ideas in the works for future productions, but first things first. Let’s get this first story off the ground. Besides…SPOILERS!

THE TRAILER

If you watched our trailer above, we wanted to give you a sample of what we wanted to do. So, we created this little trailer to do that. It was created on a dirt-cheap budget (basically, what the Executive Producer had in his wallet at the time), so imagine what we could do with a budget!

Keep in mind, the scenes shot for the trailer are NOT affiliated with any stories that we have planned or have been filming. These are just random little scenes put together to showcase our idea as if they had come from a whole season of stories.

We hope you liked what you saw!

THE DETAILS

You might be saying, “50,000 dollars! They’re asking for a lot, aren’t they?” Well…Yes, we are.

Producing a series of stories, with the professional quality of production that we want to have, is not extremely cheap to produce. We have done what we can to bring down the costs to make the most of any donations that we may receive, but costs add up fast. We hope that you are excited as we are about the ideas behind this project that you’ll help us to create these wonderful stories that we have planned.

Again, we want to emphasize that this is a not-for-profit production. Every dollar received is put into the directly into hard production costs at every level (development, production, and post-production). These hard production costs include things, such as:

  • Studio rental and monthly utility costs (See below for the studio opportunity we have!)
  • Set construction and materials
  • Production equipment rentals (camera, lighting, audio)
  • Costuming
  • Prop creation
  • Cast and crew travel, lodging and food during production
  • Post production costs

In addition, there are also the other deductions:

  • Kickstarter and other financial processing fees
  • Taxes
  • And, most importantly to you the donor, production and shipping of promised rewards

POTENTIAL STUDIO

To do the kind of production we want to do will take space to build the sets. We have an opportunity to utilize a 6,000 square foot building to utilize as studio space for up to one year. However, we can only get it, if we raise the funds. It is a great space and getting it does take up a large portion of the budget. We don’t want to lose by having it rented out before we can get it. So, help us get it!

WHY SHOULD I PLEDGE?

Please remember, Kickstarter is an all or nothing style of fundraiser. We cannot do this without your help and support. Plus, we have some great rewards planned for everyone who makes a donation!

I CAN ONLY PLEDGE A SMALL AMOUNT. WILL THAT STILL HELP?

Absolutely! We can’t emphasize enough how much a donation, in any amount will help.

For example…Our Facebook page has over 2,800 “likes”. If everyone there pledges just 25 US dollars (less than the cost of two people going out for dinner and a movie) that would raise a total $70,000! More than enough to cover this production, and get a good start on funding our next production!

I LIVE OUTSIDE OF THE U.S. CAN I STILL DONATE?

Definitely! Even though we are a U.S. group of fans, we want and need fans across the globe to have a share in these productions. Keep in mind, if you are to receive any tangible rewards for your donation, the speed of international shipping my affect the speed at which you get them, but you will get everything promised to you.

REWARDS

Again, we can’t do this without your support. We want to reward you, and every donor with a little something to express our gratitude. Please note that we have given a tentative delivery date. This date is subject to production delays.

Risks and challenges

With any project there is always the possibility of delays and setbacks. The largest setback we face currently is if our fundraising efforts fall through.

Setbacks during production can and will happen, but we will tackle those as they come. Luckily, we are blessed with a highly talented and experienced crew of film/video production professionals and first time volunteers that are driven and dedicated to seeing this project through if this fundraiser is successful. As issues might arise, you will be informed on the progress of the production. Your pledge of support shows your desire for this production to succeed and we never want to disappoint any of our supporters.
