BIG NEWS: IAN HARDING JOINS THE CAST!!!

Jeremy - IAN HARDING
Jeremy - IAN HARDING

We are supremely excited to announce that the incredibly talented Ian Harding (Pretty Little Liars) has officially joined the cast of RELIANCE! He will be making his first appearance as Jeremy very soon in Episode 2: "Eat the Cookie."

The Home Stretch...

We're coming down to the wire now with 16 days remaining in the campaign. Keep spreading the word, and we'll make it to our secondary goal!

We are now deep into preproduction, pulling together our final props, locations, and costumes, testing special effects, and finalizing our crew.

And lastly, we have a...

NEW REWARD LEVEL!

We have added a brand-new reward at the $500 mark: a Producer Credit! Your name will appear as a Producer in the credits not only for the 2nd but also for the 3rd Episode: "Walk-ins Welcome."

Of course, anyone who donates (or already has donated) above this reward level will also receive a Producer Credit.

As always: huge thanks to those of you who have already donated, and please continue to share this campaign with friends, family, and strangers/future-friends!

GOAL ACHIEVED!!! (AND THEN SOME)

Thanks to our wonderful backers, we reached our goal of $5,000 in only 17 days! We've had donations ranging from $5 all the way to $2,500 with many in between. It's been absolutely inspiring to have so much support for the project, and we're reeling with confidence. Now, we're upping the stakes and looking to fund not only the 2nd but also the 3rd episode of RELIANCE, which brings us to...

A NEW GOAL: $10,000!

With this new goal, we will be able to guarantee production of Episode 3: "Walk-ins Welcome." And we're already only $3,700 away!

We also have some very exciting cast additions coming soon, some new rewards, AND all backers will receive exclusive posts of on-set production stills once shooting gets underway.

Thank you for all the support so far, and please continue to share our project with friends and family! (For up-to-the-minute news on RELIANCE, follow us on Twitter: @Reliance_Online)

RELIANCE is a new webseries, whose first season is comprised of 12 installments, each about 10 minutes in length. The full 12 episodes create a full narrative, beginning, middle, and end, together constructing a full length feature! Currently, the independent route is the only option for serialized filmmaking, and, more specifically, independent funding is the only route for most innovative web-based material.

RELIANCE is not a genre film -- it does not fall into the categories of sci-fi, fantasy, or action -- it is a romantic thriller which delves into the mind of Leda (Allison Scagliotti), a self destructive young woman, who quickly finds any agency over her own life stripped away by an obsessive one-night stand. She finds herself relegated to her apartment with a man who insists on taking care of her, losing all control of her own body and finally her grip on reality.

One More Thing...

The goal for this KickStarter is $5,000, which would cover the costs of Episode 2: “Eat the Cookie” as well as production insurance for future episodes. If we exceed our goal, all proceeds will go to producing future episodes.

If you have any questions at all about the production, please feel free to email the production address: reliance.series@gmail.com

And THANK YOU!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The delivery dates listed for each of the rewards -- most specifically any rewards that involve completed episodes -- may be delayed depending on production scheduling; by far the most difficult aspect of an indie project with such a talented Cast and Crew is getting all the necessary components to the same place at the same time.

Our Cast and Crew consist of current TV Series Regulars, Viral Video Creators, Emmy Winning Crew Members, and many other young, talented professionals in the entertainment industry. It's rare that such a diversely skilled group can afford the time to come together and create innovative content. Guaranteeing this synchronized congregation is the biggest challenge in our production, and any single element falling through due to scheduling or higher paying gigs is the biggest risk for our indie set.

The more money we raise, the more crew and cast members we can afford to pay, guaranteeing the production’s stability and increasing the production value.

Other large challenges to the production involve Car Chases, Special Effects, and securing Specific Locations such as doctor's offices, which will all necessitate a stunning amount of coordination, but part of the joy of working on an indie set is making the project successful with whatever supplies we are given.

Again, please send any questions to reliance.series@gmail.com
