Three socially awkward friends attempt to revitalize their failing genre-related Internet news site by kidnapping a famous author.
Genrefinity: The Movie continues two years after Genrefinity: The Series ended. Our socially awkward trio attempt to revitalize their failing genre-related Internet news site. There will be a lot of pop culture references, a lot of non-PC jokes, and many references to genre movies, television and video games.
Genrefinity started out as a comedy web series in 2009 and concluded in 2011. As of September 2011 the episodes had a cumulative rating on FunnyOrDie.com of 92%. Now we want to break from our web series mold and expand the story of our hapless entrepreneurs. They are leaving the confines of the kitchen table, and headed out to redefine their failed business: a website dedicate to all things genre related.
Genrefinity is similar to early Kevin Smith films.
PLEDGES: All pledges will go to the production of Genrefinity: The Movie. Having successfully produced and released a feature film in the past we've factored in all costs associated with production and distribution. This includes, but is not limited to, cast and crew compensation, equipment rental, location permits, insurance, promotion, and replication costs for distribution.
PRODUCTION: Production is slated to begin in the spring of 2012. The reason we're asking for pledges now is that we need to ensure cast and crew the project will be funded before they commit. We can't wait until the last minute so we're giving ourselves ample time.
Initially we didn't have a downloadable version of the series or the movie listed in the pledges. While they still aren't listed in some of the pledges (this is because Kickstarter does not allow for the modification of backed pledges), links will be made available to all backers of $25 or more to the complete series and the movie in HD! However, no special features will be included with the downloadable version. Those will be limited to physical copies.
In restructuring the pledges the $175 became obsolete. The $250 pledge already had a backer so we couldn't adjust the description accordingly. The incentive should now be read as "Everything in the $150 tier PLUS a special thanks in the end credits."
Along with the four episodes of the series, the DVD also includes: two commentary tracks (one with the writer, director and idiosyncratic creative consultant, and one with the actors and director), outtakes, alternate and extended scenes, original fundraiser video, and auditions.
