Hello Kickstarter Community! My name is April Spry & I am an actress living & trying to work in LA.
I've had a long, bumpy & fairly unsuccessful road over these past 6+ years that I've been out here. About a year and a half ago, out of frustration I decided to stop caring about all the rejection & start to produce my own videos. Afterall, my favorite thing in the world is to MAKE PEOPLE LAUGH! : ) Because of this, "All About April" was born.
With the help of some very good friends I've discovered that I actually have other talents that I can put to good use with the show. I've become a producer, writer, camera operator, editor, director as well as actress. Each time I made a successful video it gave me incentive to do another. After 11 successful episodes I got overwhelmed with life & had to stop for a while.
Now, here we are, a year later. I've decided to lump the 11 episodes together & call them season one. What I'm really excited about is creating season 2. I'm not just looking to create a new season but I'm looking to completely re-invent the entire show. I want to make it more organized, more professional looking, script the episodes instead of just writing a general episode idea & then improvising everything, have a series regular cast, a general story line. I know I can do this but not without the help of all of you!
I've joined forces with an amazing writer & friend, Andrea. Together we have written 15 episodes but need to purchase a camera, tripod, boom & microphone at the very least. We also need to be able to pay all of our lovely actors, writers, sound guy, & camera operator. Please consider making a donation to support this wonderful project.
I've set our goal at $1,000 but the truth is we need a lot more than this. 3,000 - 5,000 is more ideal. I just figure 1,000 is a start. Please help us continue to create this wonderfully sarcastic show that I know has & will continue to bring smiles to everyone's faces, laughter into people's homes & hopefully water coming out of people's noses!
Also, if you're someone who just has no money to donate but you like the project we would love for you to help us out by sharing this page on your Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Googleplus, Craigslist, Youtube, personal email to family & friends, Ok cupid, eharmony. Any & all ways you can think to share. We're not picky!
And as always, thank you, Thank you, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. Your support makes this possible. Without you we'd just have a buncha jokes and no one to tell them too : )
