GOALS

Funding goals for Double Feature:

  • $9000

Distribute all missing episodes of Double Feature. Years 1-9 will become permanently available online.

  • $10,000

Patreon!! The ultimate fix for never having another Kickstarter. This will afford Eric and Michael time away from their non-Double-Feature duties so they can plot and deploy a Patreon this year, permanently ending the need for Kickstarters.

  • $11,000

No kidding INSANE mystery goal. To be unveiled if the Kickstarter hits $10,000. You will not even believe this is a real thing, but as crazy amazing as it sounds it is real. Or will be real if we make it to $11k!

Before You Even Look at the Other Stuff!

Rather than make a Kickstarter video this year, we decided to film another Double Feature series. We're calling it The Double Feature movie. It's broken into several parts - check this page every few days for a new one. It's free to stream, you don't even have to help with the show. We made it already. Just come watch it.

The Double Feature Movie - Part 1
The Double Feature Movie - Part 2
The Double Feature Movie - Part 3

OK, The Other Stuff

Every Wednesday at midnight, two movies get their time to shine - whether they deserve it or not! Double Feature seeks to uncover both the familiar and unknown, finding each and every last bright idea buried deep in American and foreign cinema. At the heart of the show is the belief that no topic is too taboo, unconventional, or challenging for two ordinary people to chew on. Well, for 40 minutes a week anyways.

While there are only two hosts of the show, it has become a crowd-sourced effort. Through this very Kickstarter, Double Feature determines what movies to cover and what marathons to go on. Backers have access to additional exclusive episodes, previous years worth of content, and a ticket into what we all like to pretend is some kind of secret society.

There’s some seriously unbelievable things about to happen, and we want you in on them.

Your Role in the Show

The show has become a collaboration. We need a crew to do this show, and this is where we find it. Film enthusiasts, executive producers, and scheduling - by backing this Kickstarter, you provide a lot more than our funding.

Double Feature is an insider club that anyone can join. We share a goal of making “film analysis” more accessible, and we want the show itself to be the same way. Every year is a fresh start. We’ll have new year-long themes, areas of focus, and names to credit for these findings!

And then there’s this other crazy thing. It's a movie, and, well, let’s hold on to that thought for a second.

Pick A Film

We’ve got 52 shows to do. What movies should we cover?

We get a truck load of requests to do movies on the show. Even with as long as we’ve been doing it, there’s been some major omissions. Whether it’s a mainstream film, a classic, your personal favorite, or some weird VHS-only thing you found on YouTube…we will absolutely cover it. Pick a film for the main show, and see what we double feature it with.

Additional Content: The Secret Podcast

What started as a little incentive has turned into it’s own spin-off podcast, and it’s only available here. It’s called Additional Content. It’s like the main show, but with a faux-casual atmosphere AND completely run by the listeners. Get access Year 6, Year 7, Year 8, and Year 9 - and of course, there’s an option to line up a Year 9 episode yourself.

Rather than just adding a film to the usual schedule, you can put together an entire episode of choices. Your movies, your theme, our chat. We’ll cover a two movie pair of your choice, or sometimes people pick out as many as five or six movies for an episode. What’s more is we’ll do as many of these episodes as people sign up for. Generate as much Double Feature as your heart desires.

Risks and challenges

For the last three years, we’ve prided ourselves on getting the incentives out on time every time. Kickstarter and the show have really become one in the same, and so fulfilling incentives is just another part of the weekly party.
