What the heck is How To Kitchen?

How To Kitchen tickles your funny bone and tantalises your taste buds, whilst tackling that deep depressing void created by your favourite TV shows coming to an inevitable and tragic end.
 
We want to make something special, not just for food lovers and film buffs, but also for those people who’s viewing pleasure aspires for more than videos of cats or side boob. 

Bringing you eye-popping quality, creativity and most importantly entertainment! 

Have a gander at our current episodes; www.howtokitchen.co.uk

What's been done so far?

The first series of HTK was used to test the waters. We made some mistakes, it all happened so fast, we were drunk and we promise it won’t happen again.  

Despite this, we now have almost 300 subs and a total of 8,600 views so far (and that's in a couple of months, with no funding and limited planning).

Series one, TV Dinners, was inspired by some of the most popular TV series' of the last few years. Money for the props, costumes and of course the ingredients came straight out of our wages. Whilst the months of filming were thoroughly enjoyable and exciting, it was also a bit difficult to keep ourselves alive on just beans and 29p instant noodles.

I'm listening... what do you want from me?

Each episode costs roughly £150 to make. This is the bare minimum we need to make an episode, but with more money we can have more impressive sets and costumes, better makeup and more extras.

Get to the point.

We want to make How To Kitchen better. We think we have a good thing going here and want to make more of it. We want better sets, more elaborate costumes, better recipes and more ridiculous side-narratives. 

The response from series one has been so fantastic that we want to get cracking on series two right away.

What's your target?

Our minimum target is £1,500. So that’s £250 each for 6 episodes. This will allow us to create unique sets for each episode and also hire makeup artists and extras where necessary. 

So the more money we can raise here, the longer we can keep the channel going, and we'd really like that to be a long time. 

Let's try and get it up to £4,000. That's 16 new episodes!  

When's the deadline?

We plan to shoot series two towards the end of November, once we've embarked on an epic pre-production process which is already well underway. 

What can I expect from the next episodes?

We've got a multitude of TV shows that we've been absolutely dying to feature, followed by some huge new film releases. We don't want to stop at TV and film though, we're also going to start covering games and books too. Suggestions are always welcomed!
