For 2012, we are uploading weekly sketch comedy/action shorts to our YouTube channel, but we need to raise our production value!
Hello! My name is Jeremy, and I (with the help of friends) make movies under the YouTube channel "Combination Films." For the year 2012, we are getting pretty serious with our films, and we need your help! One of the most difficult aspects of 2012 will be our WEEKLY uploads. And that's not including behind the scenes.
Basically, we run a low/no-budget production; which means camcorders, PVC camera stabilizers, industrial floodlights, and a couple tripods. However, we do have great software for editing and VFX, that's not a problem!
We have a staff of currently five people, including myself. A couple of bucks for gas would make the greatest difference between shooting at the playground versus shooting in the desert.
With help from the Kickstarter community, we will use all of the pledges to purchase props, camera accessories, and wardrobe. Especially wardrobe. Right now, costumes are provided from our closets and the thrift store! With proper wardrobe (morphsuits, tactical vests, neat helmets), we can make some really awesome videos. For example, Meet the Pyro features a custom costume mimicking the character from Team Fortress 2.
We will not waste 400 smackers on a toy gun. All of our props are in the price range of 15-25 dollars, and we are smart spenders!
We love games, and we love movies. In a worst case scenario (the project doesn't meet its quota), we will still make weekly videos. This project is completely sustainable at the moment, but funding will take us to the next level.
