About

Risks and challenges

Do you you have an experienced team?
The first ingredient to a successful, HBO-quality show is the right team of people. We have some amazingly talented crew members who have assisted in the production of Oscar-winning films, Emmy-winning television shows, and popular Super Bowl ads. However, part of our business model is seeking out the young, the talented, the hungry, so they’re not as proven as the seasoned professionals in the industry. With inexperience inevitably comes risk, but we vet each and every one of our crew members with the utmost care, and only hire those promising individuals who haven’t been discovered – yet.

Can this new entertainment business model work?
We’re inventing a new type of TV show. While the standard, episodic structure has had decades to become established, Headliners seeks to change the status quo. We realize change isn’t easy, and there are a lot of logistical challenges involved with creating quality daily content and a new platform on which to watch it. Still, we firmly believe there’s a better way to view TV online, so even though we’re devising our own roadmap, we’re dedicated to doing everything in our power to ensure its success.

How do you create the tech to pull this off?
Distributing our show to a global audience, and re-creating the means in which to do so, requires a seamless platform that demands an extensive technical background. Lucky for us, Austin has been coding since the age of six. Even though this is his biggest project to date, we’re one-hundred percent determined to give him the team and the tools he needs to deliver an amazing new way to watch TV.

How can you cover the fundraising to make this happen?
We received initial funding from J.H. Partners and a few strategic, accredited investors. They gave us the opportunity to prove pop punk isn’t dead and Headliners is a show people want. We used this first round of funding to secure our band and strategic partnerships, as well as to purchase marketing and advertising to get the word out. Over the past year and a half, we have poured countless hours into creating the story and the technology to support it without taking salaries for ourselves.
