Life Group: A Comedy Series
Join overly enthusiastic, completely inept "life coach" Claire Lichtenstein and her rag-tag group of misfits, who she promises to turn: "From who they are, into who they want you to think they are!"
Over our eight episode arc, this mockumentary style ensemble comedy will follow each group member's journey from #drab2fab, one embarrassing breakdown at a time, some of which aren't Claire's.
If you've ever spiraled into social media's wormhole of self loathing, been a hot mess jonesing for a quick fix, or fell for a cheesy acronym, do we have a comedy for you! ARE YOU READY TO LIVE YOUR L.L.I.F.E.?

The Big Ass. I mean Ask.
Speaking of fart jokes, did you know that Kickstarter is a platform for Financial Acquisitions Requiring Teamwork?
We are asking you to please, F.A.R.T. with us. Or on us. Or towards us. Whatever direction your F.A.R.T., whatever the strength, we will take it. You F.A.R.T.s will go to some very good causes.
What’re you gonna do with my F.A.R.T?
We'll tell you what we're not gonna do! S.M.E.L.L. it! We aren't gonna Squander Money Endlessly Laughing Loudly.
Instead, our big ask of $3500 will cover only the basis of our project.
INSURANCE: Our biggest expense is insurance. We will be shelling out a whopping $1800 just to cover our butts. I mean, to put safety first…
FOOD: Human run on a fuel derived from caloric intake, as in eating. So yeah, we’re gonna need some of that to make it happen.
EQUIPMENT RENTAL & CREW: We have most of the equipment we will need, but to make the final project look and sound as professional as we are, we will need to supplement. In addition, sound and makeup people earn their keep and we plan to keep ‘em!
If we are able to exceed our goal, we will be able to pay our actors, fund our festival cost and network pitches, and defray the cost of editing.
Every F.A.R.T. counts--even $2000 to $7000. But if you only have $10, we’ll take it. (We call that a “Poot.”) So please consider F.A.R.T. with us.
What’s in it for you?
When you donate, you’ll get access to behind the scenes photos and footage, updates, and surprises! We also have some really great incentives for donating to the campaign. Lynn’s favorite is: a one on one cooking class, and Melissa’s favorite is: an actor’s voice as your voicemail . Check out all of cool things you can get right here on the side of the page. There are many different kinds of F.A.R.T.s to choose from.
