Not Here Right Now is a live one-man show about Royce's inspiring journey from corporate citizen to world traveler.
Introducing our NHRN stretch goals! In these last few days help us take this project to the next level!
Not Here Right Now is dedicated to Jo Mercado. As one of the brightest souls to walk this planet, Jo hired me for my first full-time corporate gig at Nielsen and she's also the person who encouraged me to follow my heart. Thank you Jo. Love you to the moon and back.
Risks and challenges
Risk #1- There will be no show. To be quite frank, I don’t have $10K lying around to produce something this cool. With Kickstarter’s “all or nothing” model, we have to meet our crowdfunding goal or we lose all of the potential funds and I’m left with a great script and broken dreams.
Risk #2- I will lose friends. Since I returned from Asia a couple of years ago, I’ve been priming my friends, family, and networks about the potential of a really cool show about my journey. “Just wait for the show!” I said. If we don’t produce a show I will most certainly not have anyone to call a friend. Because who likes a liar?
Risk #3- No potential roommates. I’ll be known as “Royce the Liar” and people won’t trust me to pay rent, utilities, or feed the fish...because why should they?! My reputation as a con-artist will surely proceed me, no one will want to live with me, therefore I won’t be able to move out of my parents’ house.
Risk #4- My parents' dreams will be ruined. The deal is, after this show is completed I’ll find a proper living arrangement, go back to full "adulting," and my room can be converted into something else for their enjoyment. With no roommate prospects, I won’t be able to move out of their home and it will surely drive them mad to no end. Their dreams of a multi-purpose room will never be fulfilled.
Moral: Please keep my parents' dreams alive by helping us reach our goal.
Challenges: When I started this project, almost two years ago, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I've produced events before for sure, but nothing of this scale, with this much original content, and without a built-in fan base. Although this is true, our team is well prepared to bring everyone an exhilarating show about this life-changing experience.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
