YOU DID IT!! We passed the $50,000 mark! HUGE THANKS to all of you who shared the campaign and backed Season 2 of Just Passing Through!
STRETCH GOAL: If we can get to $55,000 PLEDGED, we will make an episode of the "show-within-a-show" MARITIMERS IN SPACE!!
Fans, if you'd like a Season 2 of Just Passing Through, more Pogey Beach and more Going Down the Red Dirt Road, it is time to get yer wallets out and get some WICKED REWARDS!
After one squirrely season of laughs, raunch, & east coast greasiness we are now ready to shoot a Season 2! BUT THE ONLY WAY WE CAN MAKE ANOTHER SEASON IS WITH YOUR HELP!
This Kickstarter campaign is make or break for Season 2! We need your support! PLEASE DONATE!
CHECK OUT THE TRAILER FOR SEASON 1:
The show is all the talk at the card parties across Canada, with over 400,000 views on Youtube and tons of positive press, acclaim, and social media buzz. John Doyle, TV critic for The Globe and Mail, put Just Passing Through #6 on his list of the Top 10 Canadian shows of 2013. Grammie was smiling for days.
We love making the show, and we know Season 2 will be bigger and better than ever! IT’S GOING TO BE FRIGGIN WICKED! We are itchin' to bring you another high quality season at a budget that you, the fans, can afford to partially support. No matter how big or how small, EVERY DONATION COUNTS!
We've got 13 REWARD LEVELS. You can get Just Passing Through & Pogey Beach ringtones, your name in the credits, your name said on camera...you can even BE IN THE SHOW!
DONATION LEVEL $100 - You get our gratitude, a ringtone, a thank you on our fan page, your name in the show credits, and 2 T-SHIRTS! A PEI MAP T-SHIRT and a LOOKING FOR WORK T-SHIRT! You won't find that kind of deal at the flea market.
The more money we raise, the more content we will get to make. If we get over our $50,000 goal there will be more greasiness, more Pogey Beach and more red dirt road!
OUR FUNDING: To make another 6-7 episodes of Just Passing Through we need a budget of at least $200,000. We are submitting our Season 2 funding proposal to The Independent Production Fund in May of this year. Innovation PEI provided $100,000 for Season 1 but is not providing funding for Season 2. This is where you guys come in.
Raising $50,000 will help our Season 2 funding application BIG TIME. There is no guarantee that the $150,000 IPF funding will happen, but with the unreal response to the show so far and your generous support, our chances are better than Grammie's at bingo! (as long as she's not into the shine)
Just Passing Through is a professional production. Television shows with similar production values can cost anywhere from $150,000 - $500,000 PER EPISODE. It takes a lot of time, equipment and people to make our show look and sound as good as it does. We shoot just like a feature film, out of sequence with dozens of characters, multiple locations & original music. We do the best we can to cut costs, but to do a show of this caliber we need to pay our cast and crew over the many months it takes to produce it from start to finish.
