For years, Claymore Productions has been producing short web videos, web series, songs, comics, and live shows. After all this experience, they are ready to combine "the web" with "the live" for their next media endeavor.

Coming Spring 2010, Claymore will harness the power of live internet streaming to broadcast a monthly live sketch show from the greatest city in the world, Chicago. There are several talented writers and a production crew waiting in the wings, ready to flex their creative muscles and tackle this ambitious project. But before the hounds can be released, Claymore needs the technical capacity to pull this off. This project will require large amounts of data intake, which in turn will require large amounts of processing power.

And that's where you come in! We need your help raising funds for this necessary technical equipment and space. We've done our research and below is the shopping list of what we need to make this project successful:

Mac Pro Quad Core
Apple Care
Wirecast Live Editing Software(standard definition)
PCI Fireware Cards/ w bus (2)
Firewire cables + Firewire Repeater for extended signal
Audio Equipment
Equipment Insurance
Space Rental

With this equipment we will be able to use three cameras videotaping that will be connected directly to the Mac Pro, at which point it will be edited by a competent crew by the Wirecast software. It will be streamed right into a live internet broadcast. And all of this is done in real time. Live.

This will be able to showcase a huge team of talented people who will be writing new sketches, rehearsing the sketches, and technically organizing and blocking the sketches. And all of this done in one month (of course, after we meet our fundraising goal).

So why talk about it? Let's do it! Your generosity and enthusiasm is greatly, greatly appreciated. With your help we can make this dream a reality. Thank you for your time and consideration and we'll see you live in Spring 2010!

With Much Love,

Claymore Productions
