Stretch Goal #1: $50,000
First off, WOW! Thank You to everyone who pledged on day one! We are blown away that we reached 110% of our initial goal in the first day! That kind of support is amazing.
We made it to the next level, so let's take it to the next NEXT level!
If we make our Stretch Goal #1 we will be able to afford to hire freelance editors and crew to help us make our videos faster. We could possibly even have videos come out twice a week. And of course, anything extra we make beyond set goals will continue to fund the shows production and the more we can raise the better the new show can be. I also want to point out that there is no such thing as "extra money" with this project. We want to make a TV-Show Level Production that for now just so happens to be on the web. The long term goals of this show include the possibility of one day moving to a TV broadcast station. IF we can raise a larger goal, that will go a long way in helping us leapfrog forward in progress.
PLUS: Every goal we reach, I will reveal a secret about myself. At $50,000 l will finally reveal to you my first name! Something google search results tell me people are trying to figure out every day for some reason, lol.
What is The Comic Book Girl 19 Show?
The Comic Book Girl 19 Show is a weekly Youtube web series that was started from scratch in April 2012 as a part time side project between two friends with a life long love of comics, movies, art, film-making, and science fiction. In under a year it has grown exponentially to over 2 Million views and over 50 thousand subscribers who are constantly requesting more content every day. http://www.youtube.com/user/comicbookgirl19
In order to meet the demands of our growing viewers for more episodes at a faster rate of production we need to be able to work on our show full time, full steam ahead! Not only do we want to bring you more videos, we want to ramp up our Production to new heights! That means we need to expand our set with more equipment, more space, and more help, so we can kick more @$$. Our goal is to produce more videos on more topics at a faster rate, and not to mention be able to have awesome guests on our show! Harder, Faster, Better, Stronger. The success of our Kickstarter will allow our show to become what it can be without the current limitations preventing us from more rapid expansion.
What are we going to use your Donation for?
We want our show to be free for you to watch but unfortunately it is not free for us to make. Our current production suffers from a limited supply of critical necessities needed to produce a high quality TV series. In our first year we scraped by using creative techniques such as Home Depot lighting, and duck taped cardboard sets. For Phase 2, we need a second video camera so we can start having guests on the show and conducting proper interviews. -Not that i want to reveal all our ghetto trickz, but so far we are faking every interview you see and conducing the same shots twice, which slows down the show, annoys our guests, creates syncing problems in post, and SUUUUCKKSS!
We also need to upgrade our old computer to modern standards for video production so we can edit, render, and output the show faster. We have a HOST of countless other stupid broken things that are need of repair. For example, our stupid monitor cuts itself off on a frequent basis and has to be unplugged to cool down. We also need to be able to hire a small crew to help us edit and shoot our videos more quickly and to man our 2nd camera if we're successful.
Robot could REALLY use like...a TON of repairs. He's literally falling apart and cutting people with his un-sanded metal shard edges, possibly giving them tetanus and us a lawsuit.
These are just the technical details of making a TV show. Beyond that and most importantly we want to be able to implement a ton of ideas for content that we just can't do on a $0.00 Budget! We want to do Podcasts, Short Films, Documentaries and MORE! Ideas are unlimited and we can't wait to start creating!
Stretch Goals: Unlocked if goal exceeded.
Risks and challenges
Every Artist out there knows that perusing their dream to work on their own creative project full time is going to be a super bumpy road.
Tyson and I have built a successful show from scratch for a year with resources that we already had available to us. We started this because we believe in our product and now it's time for us take the next step. We realize that even if our Kickstarter is fully funded, we are still going to have plenty of challenges along the way but we are ready to trade our current problems of having not enough Time and Money for our show, for all new problems, like how we can make each episode the best it can be. If we reach our goal we will be able to work on our show full time every single day of the week and our product output will grow so much faster than it has been able to before.
To put it more basic, Your donation will help us punch our boring old challenges in the face, and we can't wait to just work on the show. That is all we want, to just be able to work on the show.
