A unique motivational system speaking to creators of everything. Killin' It w/ Paul Crik remakes the character of the modern guru.

Killin' It is an online motivational philosophy conceived by Paul Crik, Caroline Peters and Ben Bloch. Though Killin' it was originally developed as a web video series, it quickly expanded to become an interactive online forum and micro-culture that took the form of it’s own mantra: “This is it. Fuck It. It is what it is.” The project has become something like open-source self-help, using Paul Crik videos and commentary as a stimulant to activate and harness the wisdom of an expanding group. Individuals constantly re-evaluate what killin' it may mean at any given moment, site, or circumstance, offering daily observations both grand and trivial. In this way, Killin’ It with Paul Crik remains fresh and responsive to a rapidly changing culture. As makers we’ve embraced the philosophy as a way of life 1.) because it works for us as creators and 2.) because we’ve been energized by the public’s response. 

From the beginning people all across the globe have responded - with letters, questions, their own home made killin' it vids, and thru a variety of social media outlets-  to what now totals over 100 short videos about Killin' It. It's time to put these fans into the Paul Crik narrative. In the movie, we want to travel the country to meet, film and interview some of the diverse crowd that has found and followed the Killin' It! web series while spinning a thematic thread that leads back to the original KI! videos. We hope to capture their unique approaches to topics like finding the back door, passive aggresivenesshaving fun, sadness or even practical advice about splitting a dinner bill, being around people with strong body odor, or swearing at children.

When it's done, Killin' It! with Paul Crik the Movie will be between 60 and  90 minutes long, including a selection of the over 100 already fully produced webisodes woven together with candid conversations, testimonials, how-to demonstrations, public performances, fan interviews, street interviews, and other killin' it experiences with those who have become engaged with the "killin' it" philosophy.  To do this, we're trying to raise $25,000 in order for 1)the 3 of us to travel to places in the US to meet the KIWPC fans whom we've previously only interacted with online, to talk with them in depth about their lives, and to have Paul join them in person, at last, on their own physical and mental quest to kill it.  And 2) purchase a new HD camera and mic system for a second camera angle to make sure that our filming is comprehensive.  These inspiring moments will be nestled in the funny, serious, magical, practical, otherworldly, sublime reality of Killin' It with Paul Crik. With your help we can get this message on the road! Any donations over the amount we're asking will be used towards crucial promotion costs after the movie is complete.

Some of the prizes we're offering are one of a kind artifacts from classic Killin' It videos. One person will be the proud owner of the yak hair boots - worn in the fashion episode. We'll also be giving away both of his famous Tuxedo shirts - one white and one blue- to two lucky supporters.  Other prizes offer valuable reminders that can be used and enjoyed on a daily basis:  Custom photocubes with video stills and t-shirts with your choice of the following classic sayings: "I'm A Grown Ass Man," "Full Force Attitude," or  "This Is It, Fuck It, It Is What It Is." Finally, we're offering a few once in a lifetime experiences for the die hard fan, including dinner with Paul in Los Angeles, having the Killin' It with Paul Crik crew come and kill it with you in your hometown, and even a chance to an executive producer of the Killin' It movie. Finally, opportunities to commission and dedicate new episodes, talk directly to Paul about your life, get encouragement, and be one of the first to own an autographed copy of Killin' It with Paul Crik- The Movie.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

We've been working together on the web series "Killin' It with Paul Crik" for five years, and have already produced over 100 shorts that will make up a good portion of the film. The work has already involved traveling the country together for performances and screenings. As a threesome we've spent long periods together in a remote Montana cabin while filming. Though there is aways a danger of relationships ending before the project's completion, our trust and dedication to each other and the project tried and true.

While we have the equipment, location and skill set to complete this movie, one obstacle has been time. The three of us are all independent people who have always had to make our livings in other ways while continuing to make the project as a labor of love and personal fulfillment. Making a promoting a large scale movie like this one, however, requires an even more intense level of commitment. Caroline Peters has secured time off next year so she can devote herself full time to the project. With support from the killin' it fans, Ben Bloch and Paul Crik will be able put everything they have into getting this project done.
