About this project

    We're  proposing our first pilot episode of a concept we've titled Custom Upfits: One for the Road.  First, let's get one thing straight, we don't want to be another Jersey Shore or Real Housewives of Orange County.  We want to steer away from the reality show standard of scripted bickering, pointless drama, and down right falseness of the programs on the air today.  We'd really love to do things on our own terms to show people that you can watch and enjoy positive TV without all the "Hollywood" factor as well as provide a huge benefit to someone who needs help.

    That being said, the idea for our pilot episode is going to be based around the construction and fabrication of a mobile video game business.  As a veteran owned business we'd like for us to get together with an organization such as the Veterans of Foreign Wars, or to get with a service member who has had a hard time hitting his stride since they've come back.  

    We'd like to create a business from scratch, working with our veteran throughout the entire process.  We'll start by going over the trailer design and function.  During the time of the build we'll move on to getting a business name, logo, website and a marketing campaign up and running.  We want to make sure we're setting them up for complete success, covering every aspect of what it takes to run and own a business.

Risks and challenges

We are very confident that there are minimal risks involved with all the elements of this project that we have control over; labor, costs, & construction. We are an experienced fabrication shop that has an immense amount of experience.
As far as the production of the show is concerned, we have an in house production specialist, and we will be relying on some rental equipment for shooting to bolster the equipment we already have on hand. Time putting all the b roll footage together will definitely be a factor. This is a huge undertaking.
Finding the right veteran will be important. We don't want to try too hard to find someone too early on the chance we don't get funded, we would hate to get their hopes up.
So, to sum up, we are readily aware of potential set backs and hurdles, but we are a custom fabrication shop that takes one of a kind builds on a daily basis, and we are used to having to handle unforeseen issues, as it is a natural occurrence for our business model.
