Thanks for checking out our project on IndoeGoGo! We hope to add some laughs, and maybe some tears (from laughing of course) into your life with our project... Our team is a handful of hardworking industry peeps who have come together to make this project a reality. We want to include YOU in the process and in the show, and here's how...
What is the deal with CALIFORNIA ROLL?
- California Roll is a comedic web series based on the adventures, mishaps, and crazy moments we all experience driving in our car. It takes place in Los Angeles, a city where your car is pretty much your second home. So much happens in your car, why not make a show about it - and so we did.
- This project will feature the colorful streets of Venice, CA where our main characters have just moved in together! As well, you will get to see all the rest of the lovely Los Angeles sights to see - parking lots, club line ups, fruit stands, ridiculous traffic... Yep! All of those great things.
- What is really important to us is to create a show everyone can relate to. We want to welcome your car stories, and plan to have a website where everyone can share their experiences!
We're pretty excited about this, and are totally loving every moment as we move through each step to put this together. Check out our crowdfund video, and our page will have updates and bonus stuff too!

So, where is the money going you ask? Let's break it down! There are 10 episodes in the first season. Good thing is, it's in a car, so we don't have to worry about sets, whew! BUT here are some of the things we do have to get:
- Cameras and equipment
- A car tow
- Post-production ie. editing, and music
Uh huh, that's a lot, and that's why we need your support :) What's great about all this, is that each thing in the budget will help create a show that will not suck. YAY!
So, what happens if we don't raise all the funding we need?
PLEASE NOTE: We have chosen a FLEXIBLE FUNDING mechanism, which means even if we don't reach our financial goal we do get to keep what we raise. Therefore, we are planning to make this show for you no matter what, however, the quality and final product will really depend on how much money we raise for the show.
Wow, we raised more money than we asked for! What now?
- The money we raise on top of our goal will go towards filming the SECOND SEASON. Oh yeah, there's more to come, you lucky person you.
- We would love to be able to enter this show into film festivals and get some much deserved attention from all those bigwigs out there.
- ALSO, we want to give back for extra blessings, so we will donate 5% of the extra funds to a charity in the name of all our supporters, so extra good karma will find it's way to you. Sweeeeeet!
So, what exactly is IndieGoGo, and how does it benefit you?
- IndieGoGo is not an investment or charity. It is an exchange: funds from fans for rewards from us. So, we don't just take your money - you get something back!
- Be a part of a community that creates and supoprts together!
You spent all your money on rent, are there other ways you can help?
Yes! Even if you can’t contribute, we still need your support.
- Share our IndieGoGo page with friends and family.
- Like our Facebook page.
- Leave positive comments on our youtube videos.
- Just being a fan is a big deal to us, and for that we thank you.
If you have any other questions just send us an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
We would be happy to hear from you. This is a fun project that becomes even more fun the more people that get involved. So join us in making a great show that will have you saying "Oh, yeah, I've so been there before."
Thank you for all your support,
The Team of California Roll
