About this project

"Please read this kick starter page about this great and worthwhile campaign." - Barbara King, actress on NBC's Parks and Recreation

NOTE:  There are new rewards!  And some rewards are no longer available!  Donate now and make sure you get what you want!

It has been about two years since I wrote a sketch or anyone let me be in their sketch comedy video.  So I need money so I can shoot some sketches.  4-5 years ago I took classes at Groundlings and UCB.

I know one comedian friend who will be in my videos.  There is another comedian friend who I think might be in my videos too.

With money, I can pay a director of photography to shoot the video(s) and an editor to edit the video(s).  The amount of videos depends on how much money I raise.  If I raise the minimum ($500) I will shoot one video.

(NOTE: The photo above is taken from a sketch I wrote around 2010 that I performed at Comedy Bang Bang's sketch show in Los Angeles.  It was an honor.)

PRESS UPDATE (1/27/2014): I was interviewed about my Kickstarter campaign on the Friday Nightcast Podcast.  You can listen here!

QUOTES & PRAISE FROM CELEBRITY BACKERS:

"With his Kickstarter campaign, Richard Feliciano describes his vision with brutal, heartbreaking honesty. If he tried to make up some dumb reason why he wanted to make some funny videos I probably would have given him a verbal lashing instead of barely enough money for a cliche pair of Chuck Taylors. Also, I don't think he used the word 'sustainable' as part of his pitch. Even better, but I'm not sure because I didn't take the time to completely read the letters and words on his page. I'm lazy and careless with money." - David Urbanic,  Respected filmmaker, self-made man

Risks and challenges

The big risk is that the videos might not be that good. I will make sure that doesn't happen by tapping into the overflowing creative well that has been accumulating inside me in the 2 years I haven't written or performed a sketch.

The other challenges have to do with getting people to be in the videos. I still talk to 4-7 people who I took classes with and I'm sure they'll remember me and be in at least 1 or 2 videos.

The last challenge is figuring out how to display the videos. YouTube? Film festivals? Private screenings? I will be sure to hammer these things out as I go along.

    For $300, you will make my campaign a success, I will stop promoting this, and you will finally be able to surf Facebook without reading posts and updates about my campaign every day. You will be able to experience the self-satisfaction of knowing you were the individual responsible for putting an end to this madness. Is there any reward greater than that?
