'Pioneer One' is a dramatic series that will be distributed, for free, through the VODO network. VODO is an online distribution platform which is able to reach millions of viewers through their relationships with existing BitTorrent communities. Our previous film, 'The Lionshare', was distributed through VODO and was very well-received. Now we're turning things up a notch.
In the pilot, what first looks like a terrorist act turns out to be a Cold War relic come back to haunt the present. We follow our main characters, a team of Homeland Security agents, as they discover the truth of what's happened and end up finding themselves in a situation with global consequences. It's part political drama, part procedural drama, with a tinge of sci-fi. But beyond the initial catalyst, which is fiction, everything has its root in factual events.
The pilot is a proof-of-concept for a full first season to be distributed as VODO's first 'Original Series'. From there, we have an on-going arc with at least four more seasons' worth of story to be told. But it all begins with the pilot episode. We need to show potential backers for the series what we can do and what we have in mind.
We've pulled out all the stops, drawn in everyone we've ever worked with, and called in all our favors to get this pilot done. We're getting breaks on everything from equipment rentals to location permits, but we still need money to see this thing through. We're so close but we need help to get past the finish line. That's where you can help. In addition to the thank-you gifts you'll get for donating, if things go as planned and we go to series, you'll know you helped make it happen from the very beginning. We'd love to have you start this journey with us.
