Madicine Woman Pilot Episode

$5,000

20

This project is a pilot episode for a medical drama web series called Madicine Woman. It’s the story of Madison, a young Physician Assistant who must fight to save her medical practice from demise, leading her to discover a life changing secret. In addition to the fictional story about Madison we will be giving the audience an inside look at the reality of primary care medical practice in 2018. It will also touch on important aspects of human physiology and medicine relevant to our country’s greatest health threats.

In addition to my fascination with medicine and enjoyment of helping people, I have also had a life-long love of radio and television which is now expressed through internet video.

 In fact, I was even a broadcasting major when I started college. This project is the nexus of these interests and my personal experiences to make the most realistic medical drama of our time.  

We already have the script thanks to our writer, Brandon Lopez. The other member of the team is Jeff Dickerson, the cinematographer from our 2014 short, SHE.

We  will begin in early April. We will submit the final video for purchase through online platforms like Amazon Video once it is completed in May. Then we will continue writing and planning for a complete first season.

We have two budgets, depending on how much we raise through Kickstarter. There is a $12,000 dream budget with all of the extra elements we would love to include in the production. Then there is the $8000 budget which will be adequate to start to tell this story if we can achieve at least $5000 of it through Kickstarter by March first.

Casting has begun for the principle roles.  Cree Armstead plays the lead of Madison.  She has extensive experience with on-screen roles, including several lead roles.  Russell E. Johnson will play Dr. Adams.  Allie Rivulet of Chicago will be Ruth.  The part of Mrs. Douglas is played by Julie Antti, and Mrs. Haywith is played by Judy Herrmann.

Risks and challenges

We will have a challenge accessing the office at times when it is not being used for seeing 50+ patients daily, but with it closed on weekends we should be able to shoot 12 pages of script over two weekends. We can add an additional weekend if needed to clean up some shots if needed.
