"Common Threads" is a web series that originates from a project entitled "Epic Day". While originally written and produced as a film, "Epic Day" evolved into a mini-series that we released in January. The series was met with great local reviews and has gained a small cult following. However, in order to really make this project a dynamic and lasting series, we decided to start from scratch and revamp the series.
An Improved New Look
Under the new title, "Common Threads", we get a better sense of who the characters are individually and collectively and why each relationship is important. "Common Threads" very much represents the current generation of 20-somethings trying to find their way in the world. As much as they try to avoid each other, their paths are intertwined. By facing each other, each of them discovers a bond; a common thread that holds them together.
The first season of "Common Threads" will consist of 12 webisodes. We are to begin production on the first 6 webisodes starting in July. Here is our projected timeline:
July- Production on Webisodes 1 & 2
Aug.- Production on Webisodes 3 & 4
Sept.- Post-Production on Webisodes 1& 2, Production on Webisodes 5 & 6
Oct. Post-Production on Webisodes 1-4, Production on 5 & 6
Nov.- Post-Production on Webisodes 3-6, Release of Webisode 1
Dec.- Post-Production on Webisodes 4-6, Release of Webisodes 2 & 3
What We Need
We already have our Cast and Crew, and we've already managed to raise a portion of our funds offline to "kick-start" production on the series. The $3,000 goal is what we need to complete our budget for the second half of our 12 webisode season.
Now, $3,000 is a lot of money. However, factoring in travel costs, food, and post-production costs, it's really just the bare minimum. But we can do it!
In order to deliver this full 12 webisode season, we need your support.
Filming the "Epic Day" mini-series on our own was doable but "Common Threads" takes things to a new level, and that requires money.
Why This Project Is Necessary
"Common Threads" will be entertaining, but it also has the potential to inspire this current generation in ways that other webseries and TV shows have yet to discover.
The cast and content is diverse with topics ranging from homosexuality, unemployment, class, abortion and coming of age. We don't have a major investor or the backing of a network, but we've invested the time and effort to produce this web series, and we hope that you will invest your money and moral support to help us achieve our goal.
