#RBL, chronicles the personal and professional lives of decedents of Super Star icons from the industry of Music, Film, Television, Sports, Business and Art. With each episode, this reality TV drama will highlight their unique and challenging personal journeys. Their Bloodlines are REAL! Their feelings are true! Their stories are felt! With that said, the gloves are off and everything goes. No matters what or who comes their way its always about the money, the motive, the lies, the sex, the drugs, the game and the shame! "The stories are not all pretty, the public personas of a few are less than glamorous and the pain of living in the shadows of a legend is obvious".
So here's the million-dollar question that many have asked. With such a pool of celebrity cast members who are no strangers to Hollywood, Why did #RBL decide to use kickstarter as a funding resource for this project?
Answer: Real Bloodlines, ironically is so NOT Hollywood! Executive Producers, David Ruffin Jr., and veteran TV producer, Bill Nelson thought long and hard about which direction to take relative to the production, distribution and marketing of this project. After many sleepless nights, edits and re-edits of the actual reel, it became clear to the EPs that in the end, creativity and artistic control were the most important elements of the project! Bill passionately asks, "...Don't we want to be free to tell our stories as they actually happened and not through the lens of Hollywood where things more often than not, get diluted with half truths?" - David simply replies, "Absolutely"
"We have decided to take the independent approach in the total creation, production, post-production, marketing and distribution of the project. With creative and financial control, we can deliver a more compelling, entertaining and thought-provoking project that will certainly capture the attention of mainstream America! Because of the iconic characters that are attached to this project, Kickstarter could possibly provide us with the opportunity to reach our goals, our way!"
#RBL is very fortunate to have a very creative and passionate team of industry professionals and cast members, who are committed to delivering a very smart, polished, professional yet personal TV show for the public to experience ... however great talent comes with a price. We have invested over $75,000 in the project thus far and are now entering into the final phases of production, distribution and marketing. Regardless that our Projected goal is in excess of over 200,000 or more to finalize this project, WE WILL ONLY BE ASKING FOR INCREMENTS OF 20K per campaign at a time, IN ORDER TO INSURE THAT WE CAN RETRIEVE WHAT FUNDS DO BECOME AVAILABLE. With this tactic in place, we can complete production of the final episodes of the first season; distribute the program ourselves in the 25 top TV markets and maintain the freedom to promote the series throughout the country on selected radio & TV stations. This will better ensure that we can avoid having to reimburse all funds that fall short of the actual Objective, due to KS having an "ALL-OR-NOTHING" stipulation/claus on all funding projects!
#RBL is more than a just your typical REALITY TV show! It is more than 15 minutes of fame! It is about the inherited secrets, lies, and scandals their BLOODLINES may have left behind!
Risks and challenges
In production, many types of unexpected things can indeed happen!
This being one of the reasons why we chose to do this in Atlanta. Atlanta ... over Los Angeles and Detroit, offer a multitude of incentives and programs to productions in and around the Metropolitan area of Georgia's hottest new Movie host, Atlanta.
Not only that, we have been fortunate enough the get more than half way through it.
We started this with minimal expectations! However, the wheels on this project, just happened to get up to speed a hair sooner than we expected. The EP's already have commitments from various local and national sponsors, already in line with provisions as vast as Apparel, Housing in Buckhead, GA., 2014 vehicles on dealer lease/loan and much more.
Most importantly, we have over 40 years of combined production experience, that will indeed help us navigate through any possible production delays, beyond this one!
Thank You for reading our program ...we look forward to bringing you the best of ourselves in return for your Faith in our Project!
A sincere Thank you in Advance - RealBloodlines.
