About this project
UPDATE: New $30 reward - An autographed DVD of the short film The Indian & the Samurai, starring Julia Cho!
If you're a fan of The Lizzie Bennett Diaries, or a fan of Julia Cho in general (and let's be honest, who isn't a fan of Julia Cho?) we will send you a copy of Shilpi's short film where Julia plays a key role! Check out the Video below where Shilpi and Julia describe the film, julia's role, and how it ultimately led to Hipsterhood!
NEW GOAL: at $7,000 everyone gets a digital download of the Making of Hipsterhood Season 2
With $2000 more dollars we can deliver you guys a very special behind the scenes look which will feature our great cast and crew. You'll see the ins and outs of a film set, who's the goofiest person on a crew, and why making movies is one of the best jobs ever! Help us get to $7000, and we can bring this to you!!
FIRST OF ALL, THANK YOU to everyone who watched season 1 of Hipsterhood. We can't tell you how much it means to us that you enjoyed the show. And if you haven't seen it, watch an episode right now! Sure, we were featured in USA Today, Huffington Post, and NBC-LA, but none of that compares to the response from our fans. We love hearing from you!
WE'RE GONNA BE TOTALLY HONEST: We were burned out after season 1. We were so OVER all things hipster. We just wanted to sit on the couch and watch bad reality TV for the rest of our lives. But tiny little voices started nagging us on Facebook, on Twitter, on YouTube...YOUR VOICES. And you were all saying the same thing:
"YOU CAN'T LEAVE THEM LIKE THIS. YOU MUST MAKE SEASON 2."
And you were right. So I sat down to write season 2, and laughed and cried and swore at myself. And then I thought, maybe this time we don't have to do it alone.
WE NEED YOUR HELP TO MAKE HIPSTERHOOD SEASON 2.
Season 1 was created on a teeny, tiny micro budget (i.e. a credit card). And my credit can't take the hit anymore. But, beyond the money, what gets us out of bed everyone morning is knowing that people like you are out there; who want to support independent artists, who want to know what happens to Cereal Guy and Faux Fur Girl, and who want to share in the experience of Hipsterhood because it means something to you, the same way it means something to us.
SO WHAT'S SEASON 2? 10 EPISODES OF AWESOMENESS!!
Ok, but seriously, season 2 is all about the awkwardness of dating. Dating is hard enough for normal people. For hipsters, it's even worse because everyone's so counter-culture, you can't follow the 'norms' of dating for fear of being mainstream. Does this mean that awkward hilarity and hi-jinx will ensue? Yes. Will you suffer with them through the ups and downs of caring-while-pretending-not-to-care? Yes. Will it be fun? YES.
Kit Williamson and Elizabeth Ferraris are returning to star as Cereal Guy and Faux Fur Girl!! Yay! AND Daniel Gordh (some of you might know him better as Darcy on 'The Lizzie Bennet Diaries') is joining to cast! And of course, we'll see the return of Brendan Bradley as Jake/Hot Guy from the Bar.
We're gonna be doing some contests with really great prizes as we reach milestones in the campaign! Want to see your ideas show up in season 2? Want to own Faux Fur Girl's glasses?You got it!
BUT DO THEY GET TO TALK TO EACH OTHER NOW?????
Donate to the campaign, and watch season 2 to find out!
WHAT IS KICKSTARTER AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
Don't worry, it's not a scam. Check out their handy FAQ section.
HOW DO WE CONTACT YOU?
Glad you asked! You can contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will get back to you. I promise!
SINCE I'M HERE, WHAT ELSE WOULD YOU LIKE ME TO DO?
Risks and challenges
Our biggest challenge is something most people may not have thought of. In a world where cat videos and vlogging reign supreme on the internet, how do we get people to pay attention to a rom-com scripted series? The amount of time, money and energy that must be put into making anything scripted is quadruple the amount of time, money an energy needed when making anything that's not. At Hipsterhood, we believe there's a place for all types of content on the internet, but we struggle everyday with getting our voice heard over the barrage of media out there that's cheaper, quicker, and coming at a much faster pace.
This is where we can REALLY use your help to spread the word about our series. During this campaign, and once the show is out. We certainly believe Hipsterhood deserves to share the spotlight with all the other great content out there, and we hope you do too!
Our second bigest challenge should the Kickstarter succeed, is getting all 10 episodes shot! When you're juggling 18 locations, 10 people on your cast and crew, and you're in a city that hates film shoots (because everyone else and their mother is also filming something), it can get really difficult. But I'm an experienced low-budget filmmaker, and most importantly, I've done this before. So no matter what production throws at us, I know we can handle it.
The money raised in this Kickstarter campaign is JUST ENOUGH to pay for the following things:
PARKING (remember, we're in LA, you always have to pay for parking)
Notice what's not on the list?
ANYONE ACTUALLY GETTING PAID
So if you guys feel like our work might justify actual payment, please donate a little more. If we can raise MORE than $5000, we can start paying people! Maybe EVERYONE can have Chipotle for lunch!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
