Risks and challenges

We've got an awesome team of hungry film makers and we've already structured our show for multiple seasons. The risk of not receiving a final pilot episode is minimal. In terms of many of the rewards offerings our team also has extensive experience in manufacturing and are already working on the prizes for our backers. As a team, we are 100% committed to creating the best product(s) possible and building community around Rise and Shine.
