STONERS WITH A TIME MACHINE: Season One

STONERS WITH A TIME MACHINE combines slackerdom and science fiction in a web series that follows three stoner roommates and their ineffectual, often chaotic, use of time travel. Mike, Jeff and Chris use their time machine to help pay the rent, solve inane arguments, or get high, while continually ignoring the philosophical or even logistical consequences. Their actions rewrite history and screw-up their slacker lives. During season one, the three will encounter dangerous cleaning robots from the future, exponentially multiplying cats, the inventor of the television, Jeff’s future girlfriend, and the threat of their (eventual) nemesis, Mr. Wen, soon to become the diabolical Dr. Wen (he graduates next year).

HUSTLEBOT started as an improv troupe in 2006. By 2009, we were creating short-films, including the multiple award-winning short for the 48-Hour Film Project SHADOWS OF THE SHIELD. (Best Writing, Audience Award, First Runner Up, Best Use of Dialogue) In 2010, we won FIRST PLACE in the inaugural STEELTOWN ENTERTAINMENT PROJECT: FILM FACTORY for our short screenplay ROLL THE DICE. The winnings funded the production and the short premiered at the 2010 Three Rivers Film Festival. In 2012, a version of Stoners with a Time Machine was a finalist in the Comedy Central Short Pilot Competition in the New York Television Festival

All $5,000 will go toward paying lighting, sound, and camera crew; renting cameras and lights; building or renting sets; and procuring props.

Risks and challenges

The risks are minimal, since the scripts are written and the talent secured. The challenges will be to secure sets and locations, although with the donations, this should be easily overcome.
