About this project

Hello!

Welcome to the "Not Safe For Work" campaign headquarters! Thanks for dropping by. We are making a crazy COMEDY and would love to have your help.  Think "The Really Cool Show" but with fursuits and a copy machine love affair...all at the office of a dating website! I hope you will consider making a pledge to our film. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me ryan@ryanbalas.com

Thanks for your support!

-Ryan Balas

ABOUT THE FILM:

"Not Safe For Work" is the inaugural feature film from the new production collaboration THIS-IS-PINK, founded by Ryan Balas (Creator/Star of www.thereallycoolshow.com),  Danny Costa (Principal at distribution consultancy Delarge Films), and Thoma Kikis (Producer of DARKON, Co-Producer of ALPS, Co-Executive Producer of IT'S A DISASTER). 

With "Not Safe For Work" we're aiming to make an honest, funny, sex-comedy with heart -- and we need to raise production funding in order to bring our lighthearted examination of relationships and kink to the screen.

Our target audience with "Not Safe For Work" include: Fans of midnight genre movies, underground cinema, Russ-Meyer style B-movies, outrageous avant garde and sex comedies; All in all, though, we're looking to make a movie that anyone who has ever felt at odds with a part of their personality can identify with. 

A detailed story outline and passionate, seasoned bare-bones crew will allow us to shoot NSFW efficiently, and in the breakneck speed of 5 days here in NYC -- with your support, of course.


Thank you for considering our project!
