WATCH OUR PILOT ABOVE!
What's the show about?
The creative team of Dolan Bloom and Caitlin Morris are bringing you their first webseries. Will (Dolan Bloom) and Tess (Caitlin Morris) are stuck in post-collegiate purgatory. This codependent duo is struggling to pay bills, stay focused, and find fulfillment while navigating life in New York City. On top of this, their lives get even more complicated when their longtime roommate deserts them unexpectedly. With no other choices available, they must find a sublet to fill the empty room, and quick. Rent is due! Every time each new potential tenant arrives, they bring out the flaws of this neurotic but lovable pair.
Everyone has a "crappy roommate" story, but what if it turns out the one who's impossible to live with is YOU?
Our story will be told through a season of 10 episodes, in addition to a series of Will and Tess' vlogs, which will be released separately throughout the process.
Where is your money going?
In order to pull off a full season worth of episodes, we need your support. A project of this magnitude requires a LOT of hands on deck. We--the creators--will need to set aside 3 1/2 weeks for filming alone (this means time away from our survival jobs). Then comes post-production (editing, music, etc), promotion (including annual fees for our website/domain) and distribution (Vimeo fees).
Things add up quickly. Between the cost of filming equipment (camera, light, and sound), costumes and props, insurance and the cost of feeding cast and crew for almost a month, we're already looking at about $10,000. We are also factoring in the transportation costs inherent to living in New York City (van rentals to move equipment, cab fares for our designers toting things to set, etc.).
On top of the basic expenses incurred by simply orchestrating numerous days of filming back-to-back, we are also determined to compensate our genius collaborators. The individuals who helped us put together our pilot episode for your enjoyment have donated their time and talents!! To ensure that this webseries will be high-quality entertainment, we have assembled a professional, devoted team all of whom are similarly juggling the demands of this creative endeavor and the necessity of a day job. Finding a way to feed yourself AND your soul is never easy...just ask Will & Tess.
**Additionally, pitching our project on this e-platform means that around 5% of the funds are collected by Kickstarter as a fee.
REACH GOAL- $20,000
More money raised means quicker release of episodes, more vlogisodes for your enjoyment and higher quality equipment!

Risks and challenges
Every creative project faces a certain number of risks and challenges from conception to completion. We are lucky enough to have a solid network of friends who are creative professionals themselves.
