About

The first live action Steampunk show of its kind! Set in the depression of 1893, Riley and the The Magician are freelance explorers forced into taking a job from a secret government agency in exchange for not having their pile of accumulated criminal charges come due. Their mission is to retrieve the powerful Infinity Pistol found in one of the Grimm's Brothers Fairy Tales before the Prussian's do.

Now with an army of evil Prussian soldiers after them and an iron grip around them from a secret government agency, these two explores must now partner up with a beautiful Mexican artifact agent in order to find the pistol before the Prussian's can weaponize it. Young Gentlemen Explorers has a rich Indiana Jones-like story to it with a Sherlock Holmes character dynamic all with a Steampunk ascetic. This is truly something you haven’t seen before!

Young Gentlemen Exploresis going to be an amazing web series that everybody will be able to see soon. Our goal is to film the entire 70-minute series this summer and launch it in the beginning of fall 2011. We have the locations picked out, schedules done, and crew selected, but what we'll be doing with the money raised on Kickstarter.com is use it for making the props, the wardrobes, the locations, and facilitating the actual shoot to happen. We hope to end up with a series that looks like it had a budget of $1,000,000 for only a fraction of the price. Your donation will go a long way because we already have much of the infrastructure needed, so thank you for checking us out and we look forward to making Young Gentlemen Explores with your help.
