THANKS, EVERYONE! WE'VE REACHED OUR GOAL! BUT IT DOESN'T HAVE TO END THERE.  If you still want to contribute to our show, you can.  Let's keep the momentum going!  We can get our show off the ground with what we've raised, but additional funds will be used to make this the best production we can.  Every dollar over our goal will help us secure better locations, create more extravagant sets, improved costumes, lights, the rental or purchase of higher quality equipment and license more great music. Who knows, we may be able to secure our second season!  Please share this project with anyone who might be interested in helping out.

During Dirigible Days, you'll join Captain Santiago Dunbar and the crew of the airship S.S. Beatrix as they transport a dangerous prisoner of war from the Cult of Cthulhu across the aethersphere of the Great Empire with ambushes, crooked lawmen, and Woe-Claw mercenaries along the way.

Our adventure takes place in an alternate reality nearly 1,000 years after a catastrophe transformed the surface of Earth and raised floating skylands, launching a new age of exploration and colonization. This steampunk-themed sci-fi/action/comedy is set in a rich world that mixes the Victorian era with elements of Jules Verne, H.G. Wells and H.P. Lovecraft.

Season 1, entitled "Hierophant Unbound", will consist of five episodes each ranging from 7 to 15 minutes in length. Funding is required for set construction, props, costumes, locations, music and talent. "Hierophant Unbound" is part of a planned three season "trilogy". The screenplays for Seasons 2 and 3 are in development and will begin production upon the success of Season 1.

The pilot episode will be shot largely out of pocket, but funds raised through Kickstarter.com will go a long way in helping us realize the remaining episodes of the season.

THE MUSIC: VERNIAN PROCESS and THE ROOT DIGGERS
Special thanks to the steampunk band Vernian Process for composing the theme music for our series and allowing us to use their music in our teaser video.  www.vernianprocess.com  Music from St. Louis local bluegrass band, The Root Diggers, will also be used in our series!  The Root Diggers on ReverbNation
