Our goal is to create a pilot Star Thieves episode, which will be the first introduction to the entire cast and will also begin to unravel a the mystery of why these aliens have infiltrated our world. Looking to the future, we have an entire season filled with amazing characters and insane twists that will leave you guessing where allegiances lie until the end!

Risks and challenges
As all creatives (and backers!) know, taking a script to a film can always be a challenge, no matter how prepared we all are. We've gathered a special group of people who all have tons of experience with the entire process of making films + crowding various productions! With that said, we're not anticipating any challenges that will be unexpected. There's chances of crew/cast members' schedules changing, or locations backing out. However, we've got our production map lined out all the way to when we deliver you all the episode you've participated in making.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
