DANCE REEL NYC is a new web series following American hip-hop choreographer, Brandi "B.Nik" Kilbourne and her choreography and production assistants (two female hip-hop dancers from Belgium and France) coming together in NYC to produce a jaw-dropping stage show. With a cast of 10 professional dancers, an industrial stage and an emminent amount of fierceness, these dancers are a spectacle to watch both on and off stage. What we miss on the stage, we catch with the camera. Watch as professional dancers (whose resumes include names like Lady Gaga, Beyonce, and Kanye West) find themselves in the city of dreams, with one united goal: the staging of a dynamic and innovative hip-hop dance production: "Girls With Dreams." Watch as the "reel" drama unfolds.
The production of this webseries will touch the lives of girls all over the globe who aspire to work in the world of dance and entertainment, dreaming of performing in New York City shows and becoming a sucessful entertainer. The dancers in this webseries come from the United States, France, Belgium, Isreal and as far as Japan. Places where hip-hop dance has yet to be respected. This series will bring home the experiences of these girls and their drives of making their dreams a reality. They will see the process that choreographers and producers endure to create such productions and will be able to be there every step of the way.
What We Need & What You Get
Basically, we need money to cover the production costs of the series. We have already raised $10,000 to start the project but we need more to really put this show together. So, what does that mean? Specically, we need $2,000 for the cost of dance studio and filming space over the course of the 6 months of filming that will take place. We also need $5,000 in set and lighting fees, and another $3,000 in photography cost for press kits and show marketing.
