About

What is Beat Em or Eat Em?

Beat Em or Eat Em is an original web series that combines two popular video genres (retro video game playthroughs and gross out food challenges) into a unique genre of it's own. If we don't beat the retro beat-em-up game we have to eat something unpleasant.

Who is making the project?

The multimedia collective known as BLANKMAN Productions is behind the production of Beat Em or Eat Em. The professionally trained team at BLANKMAN Productions has been producing entertainment for nearly fifteen years on a small scale. The group's most recent venture BLANKMANinc.com, a pop culture blog, has garnered the attention of Grammy Award winners, Academy Award winners and Pulitzer prize winners.

How can you help?

We want to make twelve more episodes of the show and we need help making that happen. Not only do we need a little bit of help funding the project (more on that later) but we REALLY need to spread the word about Beat Em or Eat Em. It doesnt matter how good our project is if nobody sees it so if you enjoyed the video, please share it! Dont feel like sharing? Give us a like or a friendly comment. Every little bit helps. 

What's this money business about?

We want to be as transparent as we can about this because nobody likes asking for money, so here's the deal: putting this together takes a LOT of time, energy and a little bit of money to boot. We love to create fun stuff for people to enjoy and we would LOVE to make Beat Em or Eat Em into twelve more episodes and then maybe more to come but we're no spring chickens and if nobody seems to show an interest and help us fund the project, we're going to move onto something else. In short, if you like what you see and want to see more of it then help us make it happen. 

What do you get out of it?

Well, that depends. We've split our incentives into two categories to better suit your needs. Half for fans who want merchandise like stickers, posters, T-shirts, DVDs and other memorabilia from the show and the other half for professionals who may want to use our show as a promotional vessel for their own business or use our professional design services for their-selves. 

What happens when the season is over?

We don't really know. Hopefully the show will do well and develop a following. If so, we may do another season but really that's up to you guys!

Risks and challenges

Simply put, if you pick one of the "Fan" incentives YOU WILL receive your reward with no risk, even if we miscalculated costs and it has to come out of our own pockets. We've been doing honest business on BLANKMANinc.com for years and we don't plan on starting any funny business now. Ya know, except for the whole "comedy" stuff. Obviously this is a longer project that will span an entire season so we will have to wait until the season is over before we can really dig into fulfilling our obligations but we WILL deliver.

However, if you're planning on using Beat Em or Eat Em as a professional promotional tool with advertisements then there's always the risk that our show might not reach as many people as anticipated. Some of the more popular video series on Youtube get millions of views (therefore millions of people see your ad!) but there is really no way to predict just how popular (or unpopular) a show will be. If it's any consolation, BLANKMANinc.com has had hundreds of thousands of views and we intend to get hundreds of thousands of views for Beat Em or Eat Em.
