Hello fellow Breakers!
Thanks so much for watching The Breaks. Your support and encouragement so far has been phenomenal and truly blown us away! If you haven't watched yet, you can find the episodes here:
That said, we don't want to stop at just 3 episodes, so we need your help!
Doing any production is costly; in Los Angeles where people are always demanding payment it can be even more so. Our first 3 episodes ran us about $1,000 EACH out of pocket. That covers lighting, sound recording, crew, editing, camera rentals... not to mention the cards themselves!
Our goal is to raise $4,000 so that, even though we will still be paying some expenses, we can afford to bring you a total of 6 new episodes in 2014.
We want to keep the episodes commercial free and continue to do our box breaks and giveaways with each episode. The only way we can afford to do that is if YOU, our community, decide you want to be personally invested in the completion of Season 1 of The Breaks. Towards that end we have some awesome rewards for you. Some of the unique ones include:
$1 - Twitter shout-out (unlimited quantity) - do you run a business on ebay or Collectors Rev and want us to tweet a listing? Maybe you're doing a giveaway you want shared? Let us know, we'll tailor our shout-out to your needs!
$40 - we'll send you an AUTOGRAPHED "The Breaks" exclusive card!
$150 - you can participate in a radio/podcast coaching session with Los Angeles sports radio host Dave Denholm!
$200 - we'll promote your product/LCS/company IN AN EPISODE with placement or by having Ivan wear your gear!
$250 - 2 tickets to a special Los Angeles screening party with cast and crew of episodes 1-9 upon completion! (Hotel & Airfare not provided)
$500 - $3,500 - YOU can actually have creative input in an episode of the show! Storylines, casting, locations, products, you name it! *We do ask however that you contact us before deciding to give for these reward levels just so we can work out logistics in advance
If we can get money beyond our goal, we promise it will ALL go back into making the episodes EVEN BETTER! We would love to get some real athlete cameos, maybe some recognizable faces for our guest star roles, and microphones that actually work!
In addition to the rewards, if we can continue to make episodes we can continue to run our Twitter feed (@WatchTheBreaks) and do our regular contests and giveaways. We love and appreciate the community we have around us, and hope you will join with us to keep The Breaks going strong!
Risks and challenges
#MailDay! How will we overcome challenges and obstacles? Well, the fact that we self-financed 3 full episodes is a testament to our power to persevere when times are tough! Our hope is that with a full budget we can accomplish twice that number this year, but even if we don't we will continue to make these episodes simply because we love doing it. It may mean we only make 2 a year, but we will get them done by whatever means necessary.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
