Welcome to Dad on Avail!
Hey, I'm Nick Bush. I'm making a web series called Dad On Avail. It's a (sort of) autobiographical look at my life as an actor and a new dad.
After my wife went back to work, I began taking our daughter with me to auditions. Being an actor is challenging, but doing it while caring for a helpless infant can be downright ridiculous. Parenting and acting are equal parts terrifying and incredibly rewarding. At least it's never dull.
Our campaign is simple. We're raising money to shoot THREE episodes. Once we've finished production and the shows are ready, we'll then pitch the show to buyers for a full season and more.

Your contribution would be ESSENTIAL to the production of this show. Without you, the show would just sit in my brain along with highlights of Joe Montana throwing to Jerry Rice and Pearl Jam playing Kansas City in 2003 (it was raining and they opened with Release, a flash of lightining lit the sky, and Ed said "Hi Dad". You get it)
What We Need
We're hoping to raise $3000. That's all what we need to get some great people aboard and this thing in the can. It will cover equipment rental, props and sets, wardrobe, food for the crew, and our post-production needs.
Now here's what YOU could get when you donate to our show:
A Tom Carroll headshot signed by the cast (Illustrated by Kevin McShane)
A rehearsal for your improv/sketch team coached by Eric Hunicutt
A private coaching session with Eric Hunicutt
A team poster designed by Michael Garcia
One spot in Brian O'Connell's Forms Class starting March 14
A chance to be an extra in the shoot! (if you want...)

The joy of knowing you've helped an independent production reach their goal.
Making Dad on Avail a reality
We are truly excited to get this project off the ground. With help from you, we can make this kernel of an idea into a reality.
This project is very special to me, and I want to share it with you. Together, we can bring a funny, endearing, ridiculous show to viewers, with a subject matter and a point-of-view that isn't always seen.
We need you!
Even if you can't donate money, please share this campaign with your friends and family and coworkers and neighbors. You can use the Indiegogo share tool to spread the word on Facebook and Twitter. Your participation matters! We need you!
