About

GL Live and its affiliated shows have the potential to bring fresh and exciting change to how video gaming news is broadcast.  The idea behind GL Live and our other shows is to bring the news people need with the entertainment they want.  While one segment might talk upcoming games and who is leading the eSports world, the next might involve spinning a wheel and making the hosts do sexy poses on their desk.  We also have custom cinematic segments planned such as Red Dead Meets Grand Theft Auto where we drop Arthur Morgan into LA and see what happens. 

The current issue is that we need to increase our capital cash flow so that we can firstly upgrade our broadcast equipment.  This includes better audio, lighting, streaming equipment, computers, and electrical upgrades to our studio.  The cameras we use currently work well even though they are a bit older, but that is something we would like to change once the show is fully up and running with funding. 

Beyond the immediate studio upgrades needed, our production crew and hosts need to travel to the biggest events around the country (and eventually the world) to capture exclusive content, interviews, and news.  We would have access to the best players, developers, gamers, and fans at these events. This is extremely important as we able to attend as press and would net us a bigger foothold in the industry as a news leader. 

As you will see from our pilot included with the campaign, the shows and custom segments take time, personnel, and money that we struggle with right now, but with the right funding these shows and segments have the potential to be extremely popular and go viral. 

Lastly, it takes time to build a hefty fan-base. Luckily, we do have a dedicated fan-base through our large Discord community already, but need more.  We also need time to generate sponsorships and advertisers. Our current estimate is at it will take till Spring of 2019 to be running self-sufficiently.  

Risks and challenges

If we do not secure funding, we could potentially lose our hosts and production teams and without them we are unable to broadcast the show.
Without funding, we would also not be able to upgrade our audio, lighting, power, and equipment needs which would improve the quality of the show immensely.
The equipment we currently have is owned and we have a lease in place for the studio space through 2019.
