About

As many of you know we released Inked Life season 1, episode 1 back at the start of April. Since then we have had a massive amount of feedback supporting what we are doing and complimenting us on our efforts, but something that is constantly being said is, "I wish the episodes were longer!" or "holy crap that's awesome! I need more!" What many of you might not know is, that this first season of Inked Life TV is completely self funded and produced during our free time for the love of it. 

SO, now that season 1 is well under way, we have begun to look at writing and planning for season 2 and one thing we really want to do for you all is increase the shows episode length to over 20 minutes! We also want to get to Australia and feature some of the great talent they have as well as delve into some of the traditional Island work that surrounds our shores. There will also be a heap of other little segments, like the crowd fave, 'Lunch With Karl' that we will add in. Basically, we want what you want! bigger and better!

Sadly the reality is, in order to do that, we need funding to cover the costs of increased crew size, travel, gear and music licencing etc. 

For those reasons we have decided to have a crack at this crowd-funding thing, because the last thing we want to do is dramatise the show in order to meet the status-quo free to air TV guidelines. We have tried to do a wide range of pledge amounts and rewards so hopefully there is something there that takes your fancy. 

If successful, with this funding, we will be able to get in specialised crew for some parts as well as dedicate more time to the show, resulting in a longer, more detailed, higher quality and overall superior show for you! Until then, check out the episodes from season one completely free from here - http://inkedlife.nz/category/episodes/ 

TIMELINE:

Much like season one, we plan to start filming for season 2 at the International Tattoo and Arts Festival in New Plymouth this coming November. Season 2 episode 1 will then air early in 2016.

Risks and challenges

One of the biggest challenges for any show with recurring episodes is timing and availability of talent and crew in order to meet the deadlines for each episode. To keep the show relevant we need to film almost all parts of an episode within a 1 week period, then we have a few days to ingest footage and do the post production and get it up in time for release. The way we over-come this is by forward planning, knowing what we want to cover in an episode and making sure all talent etc are booked in in advance.
