Occ The Skeptical Caveman is about an intelligent early human dealing with the craziness and superstitions of his primitive society.

UPDATE #1:  Thanks to those who have backed us and left positive feedback. We're very excited about Occ's story and where it will go! 

UPDATE #2: WE DID IT!

UPDATE #3: New Award!  $5000 just got a second option!!! 

UPDATE #4:  Pre-production has begun AND a GUEST ROGUE slot is easier to get!

Occ The Skeptical Caveman is a new webseries about a pre-historic caveman who is a bit ahead of his time.  He lives in a world where everyone around him is wallowing in fear, superstition, ignorance and gullibility. In other words - it's not that different from the modern world!  

We plan to produce 5 episodes following Occ as he tries to stay alive by wits alone in a hostile world filled with the most dangerous animal of all time...dumb people. 

You can see the pilot episode right after our Kickstarter pitch.  You can also click here to see it on our YouTube channel

Why Support Us?

Our goal as an organization is to promote education and critical thinking.  Making videos is a way to reach new audiences, entertain and educate all at the same time.  All content produced by SGU Productions has science and critical thinking at its core. You can help us reach those people who have nothing better to watch on youtube.  Right now someone is watching Charlie Bit My Finger for the 20th time and they are learning nothing! They could at least watch the Vader Sessions but they SHOULD BE WATCHING our videos so they get a tiny dose of reality.

Where Your Generosity Will Go

The money raised will fund the entire 5 episode first season. It takes a ton of man hours from script writing, costume creation, prop building/buying, set design, actor selection, equipment upkeep...all this even before we start shooting.  As you can imagine there are a lot of costs to running a crew of people.  Any pledge you can make will help so please consider donating.

Any funds above the minimum will be used to enthusiastically upgrade production quality and perhaps even extend the season.
