BE A PART OF HISTORY

"Big MaMa Earth & ME"

The First Children's Environmental TV Show Pilot

The TV Show Pilot: Big MaMa Earth Entertainment is producing the first children’s environmental TV Show pilot called "Big MaMa Earth & ME".  The TV pilot will run in a 30 minute show format (22 + 8) and will feature the Big MaMa Earth walk around  theme character, the vocal artist Ross, and the Eco-Earth Kids showcasing fun and entertaining environmental solutions as they travel the world.  We envision the TV series to be a blend of Wild Kingdom, Hannah Montana and Sesame Street with an Eco-Green theme, broadcast quality animation, and live action.

The Big MaMa Earth "Learning Experience" which is the hub of the TV show, has been portrayed by many as like an "Eco-Disney Act on Wheels".  Original Eco-theme songs such as: Big MaMa Earth & ME, Big MaMa Earth Crying Out, Go Green & Clean, Save the World, Change, and others are performed by Ross and the Eco-Earth Kids on the Big MaMa Earth stage.

Big MaMa Earth Support Characters: Big MaMa Earth Entertainment has 36 animated characters in the development stage in which Big MaMa Earth is the main character.  Her friends, “RainForest Tree-O”, “Sammy Sea” and “Pukey Pollution” were released to support and interact with Big MaMa Earth at events and in the Eco-TV series.  As the Eco-TV series grows in popularity, other animated characters will be released and additional walk-around theme characters will be produced to keep the Eco-TV series fresh, unique, and exciting.

TV Show Placement: Upon completion of the pilot, management and our co-production partners will present it to major children's networks such as: Animal Planet, Planet Green, Discovery, Nickelodeon, Nick Jr., etc. 

Management: The Big MaMa Earth management team and it's co-production partners have over 30 years’ experience in the development of children’s programming and are ready and committed to produce a high quality broadcast-ready TV pilot. (See the "About Us" section on our website at www.bigmamaearth.com )

Pledges:  Collected pledges will be utilized for: script development, voice-overs, talent, pre-production, animation, (high quality animation can cost up to $10,000 per minute) production, post-production, etc.  Additional pledges beyond our goal will be utilized for enhancing the TV pilot and/or the production of upcoming TV shows. (See the "Q&A" section for a complete explanation)

Events & Pictures: The following are a few pictures of the 17 events in 2011 that Big MaMa Earth and the Eco-Earth Kids hosted, co-hosted, or were special guests at.  We have scheduled numerous events for 2012.  Please review the "Events" section on our website for locations, dates and times:

Questions & Answers:

1). How does Kickstarter Work?: People will pledge an amount and choose a reward.  At the end of our 60-day Kickstarter campaign, if the combined total of all pledges for our project meets our $100,000 goal, the credit cards of those who pledge are charged and we will receive the funds to produce our TV Show.

2). What if we don't meet our goal?: If we do not meet our anticipated goal, funds will not be withdrawn from your account and no rewards will be provided.

3). What if we exceed our $100,000 goal?: Terrific!  Exceeded pledges will be used to enhance the TV pilot and fund the production of upcoming TV Shows - so please keep pledging!  

4). How will the pledged funds be spent?: Collected pledges will be utilized for: script development, voice-overs, talent, pre-production, animation, production, post production, etc.  All funds raised will be applied directly to the production of our high-quality Eco-TV Show(s).

5). Why are we seeking a $100,000 in pledges?: In the world of children's programming high-quality animation can cost as much as $10,000 per minute.  To get a commitment from a major TV network to run our pilot and our 13-26 TV Show series, we must produce a broadcast-ready TV pilot with a mixture of live action and high-quality animation. 

6). Are the creators of this project capable of producing a high quality TV pilot?: Yes, the Big MaMa Earth management team and it's co-production partners, who are a group of renowned reality TV show producers have over 30 years of experience in the development of reality TV shows and children’s programming.  All are ready and committed to produce this broadcast-ready TV pilot.

7). Has the Big MaMa Earth team invested their own money?: We are  committed to the success of this project and have invested over $350,000 along with thousands of hours of research and program development. 

8). What is the Big MaMa Earth Foundation?: We are in the process of forming a 501 (c)(3) Foundation i.e. the "Big MaMa Earth Foundation", that will support teachers and students as we teach environmental solutions in schools nationwide.  We will also function as a GREEN American Red Cross whereby we will assist both children and families - as well as animal and wildlife that have been displaced due to environmental issues.

9). Why should I care or pledge to create this Eco-Kids TV Show?: Since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, humankind has over-consumed many of the earth’s natural resources to a point of exhaustion - with little regard for the long term effects on our planet and its inhabitants.  We must be good stewards of our planet and STOP this destructive cycle.  Our children are our future and they will learn through this TV Show.  Please do not think of it as a donation!  Think of it as an Environmental Protection Plan for future generations.  If you see the value in this TV Show, pledge now through Kickstarter - and be a part of History!
