Empires follows 4 post-graduate men as they attempt to become professional video-game players in lieu of taking jobs in the real world
Hey yeah we just made an awesome TV pilot for you to watch!
But here's the thing -- we ran out of money while we were trying to finish it... and so we need your help to get this baby across the finish line.
The good news? We're prepared to shower you with rewards and adoration for your fiscal & emotional support.
So watch the video above, and then check out the rewards over to the right, and then read some of the info below, and then call up your tax attorney and ask 'em how much money you can afford to write-off this year, because a donation to Empires is a donation to and for America!
A little bit more about the project:
"EMPIRES" is an independent TV show about four post-graduate men who are attempting to become professional video-game players in lieu of taking real jobs. The show's main focus revolves around the misadventures of these four friends as they try to make their passion a career.
We just shot the pilot episode in Los Angeles and wrote out 5 addt'l episodes to follow, and we structured them in a way so that the pilot can be extended into a feature film, or cut down into a web-series, so in addition to helping us finish the TV version of the project, supporters will be involved in the long term life of the project as well.
And did we mention that there's snakes and motorcycles involved!!!?!?!?
Yeah. It's gonna be that awesome.
P.S. there are no snakes or motorcycles involved in the pilot.
And some frequently asked questions:
When do I get my rewards?
The project only gets funded if our entire goal is met, so pending that happens, you'll receive your reward shortly after the projects deadline. If the goal isn't met, you won't be charged, but you also won't receive any rewards.
What happens if you guys exceed your goal?
Awesome happens. Lots of rewards and lots of awesome.
Can I change my donation / donate more than once, etc.
Absolutely. Once you're a backer of the project, you can adjust your support level up until the projects deadline.
Will people see how much I donate?
Nope. That's between you and your pocketbook.
And where does this money I'm donating go to?
The majority of the remaining expenses are post-production related, so paying our editor, getting a sound mix, and doing some color correction make-up the brunt of it. The rest of it will go towards creating & fulfilling the rewards that have been promised. Very little, if any, of the funds will go towards buying cookies, and that is a promise.
Are you sure about that?
Well yeah if you wanna be a stickler about it, some of the funds will go towards buying cookies, but less than $25 most likely.
And what if you guys don't reach your goal by the deadline?
Then we fail. No money is exchanged. No rewards are received. No cookies are eaten....FOREVER
