Have a horror story from online dating?
Want to go online dating without going online dating?
LoveFail.com is a web series following a Brooklyn-based single 20-something female, Angie, who, reeling from a recent long-term relationship breakup, embarks upon the daunting, humorous, and awkward world of online dating. Each of the first season’s episodes features Angie on an increasingly disastrous date.

BACKGROUND AND GOAL
We filmed the LoveFail.com pilot episode in February 2013 and finally gathered the resources to bring it to you. And we hope you like it!
How much do we hope you like it? Enough to help us produce the remainder of the season. We have filmed Episode 2, but the financial barrier is hindering our ability to keep the project moving. It has taken lots of resources to get our labor of love this far ... and we want to go much further!
Our goal is simple: to complete the season's six episodes with a funding goal of $5000.
But we need your help.
Our fundraising goal is the minimal amount we need in order to complete this season. Every contribution counts. We mean it. Every single one.
BONUS GOAL & YOU
But there's more! (Because bad first dates are universal...)
Everyone has "bad first date" stories: you want to tell them and we want to hear them! If we raise $7500 or more, we will bring you TWO ADDITIONAL LoveFail.com episodes based on the best of YOUR WORST FIRST DATE SUBMISSIONS! Should we meet this additional funding goal, we'll be taking submissions from you--your stories (identities changed, details altered!) transformed into LoveFail.com episodes (and your friends and family will finally believe just how bad that date really was). We'll let you vote on your favorite submissions and the two winning worst first date selections will become bonus episodes!

Risks and challenges
Without your support, we just can't make the rest of the season. Why?
Most of our team has been working for free and, understandably, they need to prioritize paid projects. In order to finish the season, we need to have the resources that the team deserves for their hard work. For example:
• Paying our actors.
• Paying our Director of Photography and crew.
• Paying our location, Pacific Standard in Brooklyn NY a small amount for use of their space.
• An editor to turn our raw footage into a season’s worth of episodes.
• Sound Mixing!
