SECOND PROMO RELEASED EARLY! See "Adam & Paul Teach Zombie How to Kill a Zombie," right here!
FIRST MILESTONE MET - $1,000! AS PROMISED, PROMO #1:
What is Adam & Paul Save the Whole, Entire, Apartment Complex?
"Adam & Paul Save the Whole, Entire, Apartment Complex" is an online dramedy (drama + comedy) story created by Writer/Director Joel Reaves about Adam (Chris O'Brien), a shy twenty-something and his crude roommate, Paul (Michael Thomas Grant), who, when the zombie apocalypse descends upon planet Earth decide that they have what it takes to "win." They immediately realize that the world is freaking huge and instead decide to save the residents of their much-smaller-than-the-whole-world apartment complex.
Within the first 24 hours, they save Adam's long time crush, Rachel (Paulina Cerrilla) which would be good thing for Adam, if she didn't then beg them to save her douchey boyfriend Aaron (Paul Todd)!
The show will be a chronicle of their wacky and dangerous adventures of killing zombies, cracking jokes, finding love, and saving their apartment complex!
Who are WE why do you need YOUR help!?
Aside from Joel, who we mentioned above, the core crew consists of producer Paul Todd (also mentioned above), producer Dayeanne Hutton, and Director of Photography Patrick Geraghty. We've all been working together for ~5 years on dozens of short films, feature films, commercials, music videos... etc. (some for fun, some for the web, others for the festival circuit!) and without a doubt we know we have the experience and talent to make this show great.
Seriously, look how sweet this zombie is:
We just need YOUR help to make this happen! Filmmaking is very expensive, and while we could shoot this on a cell phone camera, edit it in iMovie, and post it on Facebook... We want you guys to LOVEthis show, not laugh at it, so we need money. We need to pay for things like:
- Special FX makeup
- Practical FX deaths (so they look awesome, not cheesy)
- Gear rentals
- Location permits
- A bunch of other filmmaker-y stuff... !

At the core story of Adam & Paul, it's all about real life situations (you know, aside from the zombies...)
Zombie movies have become too unrealistic these days, what with everyone owning a .45 handgun and knowing how to land a headshot every time. Adam & Paul won't make you scream "How did you learn how to operate a chainsaw AND fix a car engine in five minutes while the earth is going to shit around you!?" If the shit hits the fan in this story, it really does. This show is for those of you at home watching zombie movies and scoffing, "Idiot, you should've shot your infected wife, not make out with her one last time while she's dying! I could do so much better in the zombie apocalypse!" You know what? You probably could, and so could we, that's why we want to make this show.
Thank you guys so much for taking the time to check us out! Please Like us on Facebook, and follow us on Twitter, it helps just to spread the word, even if you can't donate!
Want to tweet about us, but you're feeling too lazy to think of something witty!? Have no fear, we did it for you! Tweet about A&P!
Forever yours (in a not creepy way),
Creator/Writer/Director of "Adam & Paul"

Because of your donation you get a copy of Adam & Paul Season 1 when it comes out on DVD! Now that your mind is blown, know what else you get? The above mentioned perks as well... Try and pick yourself up off the floor.
