Dalek Gary - A Doctor Who Parody

Dalek Who?

Earlier this year we brought you The Real Sims, a live-action webseries parody of the popular video game The Sims. We've wrapped up production, hosted a livestreamed screening and are now putting together rewards to mail out... and we'll soon be ready to venture forth on our next project, bringing one of the most iconic aliens in science-fiction crashing down to Earth in a new series of six comedy shorts called Dalek Gary.

These fan sketches would follow Gary, a Dalek from the British science-fiction series Doctor Who, who finds himself stranded on Earth with no weaponry and no way of reaching home. So he decides to blend in with the locals until rescue comes. It's then he is selected by a British film crew as the subject of a documentary following the lives of illegal migrant workers trying to make a living in the United States. If only they knew...!

Gary will find a job, make friends, and and maybe even have a little romance along the way. He'll stretch his imagination and learn what it is to be human. Hey, what better way to destroy us all, right?

Dalek Gary will also feature some recognizable faces, including Brian Firenzi (5-Second Films, "The Law" in Video Game High School, Dude Bro Party Massacre 3),  Jason Horton (The Annoying Orange, Totally Sketch & Tosh.0), and Ben Dunn (Boomer's Day Off, NerdTerns), with linking narration by Maria del Carmen (5-Second Films, Brian & Maria).

Timeline and Funding

We've already shot some scenes, and the plan is to drive out to Arizona to shoot the rest in August (Gary is a bit of a diva and demands we drive out to him). The first episode would go live in early 2014.

This is an entirely not-for-profit project - every penny we receive will go towards producing the shorts, and we'll also be making high-definition, high-quality copies of all six Dalek Gary shorts available for charity screenings worldwide for free.

Who is Kill9?

Kill9 was founded by a group of geeky friends in 2007. It's run by Michelle Osorio and has produced several web series and video game-related comedies and music videos like Werewolves with Top Hats (a World of Warcraft parody) which won 1st place in Comedy at the 2011 Dragon Con Fan Film Showcase... and Me and My Companion Cube (a Portal love song).

On this occasion Kill9 is being joined by longtime collaborator Ben Paddon, creator and host of the webseries PortsCenter, as well as the co-writer and co-producer of Kill9's smash hit webseries: Boomer's Day Off. Hooray!

Risks and challenges

We've a an exceptionally tight production schedule for these shorts. We're driving out from southern California to Arizona shoot with our Dalek and we'll only have him available for two days before he returns to the mothership. It's going to be a squeeze, but we're confident we can pull it off.

Once the sketches are complete we'll have a small team of volunteers helping to prepare DVDs and Blurays to be sent out to organizations looking to host charity screenings, as well as (hopefully!) showing the shorts at conventions such as Gallifrey One in Los Angeles and Chicago TARDIS (we don't know where that one is held).

And did we mention we only get two days with the Dalek? Because... yeah. Wow. That is going to be a VERY busy weekend.
