It’s almost impossible for comedians to get noticed by the Entertainment Machine, just ask one, and the number of really talented comics out there is huge. It’s very rare that you see any industry professionals scoping out the next big star at an open mic scene. Also, Lets face it, most comedians don’t know anything about getting exposure, making videos, or how to promote themselves; they just want to do their art and make people laugh.
That’s where we come in.
“Where comedians get their start”
WHO ARE WE?
We are a bunch of media professionals in the production, creative, and design fields who saw an opportunity to create a “win win win” situation by combining our skills, with talented comedians, to create an over-the-top comedy network called DFUZE.TV “The Anti Social Network™”. We have created a comedy network that develops new, raw, up and coming talent. DFUZE.TV allows all comedians their creative freedom and provides a home where their talents can be taken to the next level. It also allows us to be creative and keeps us doing what we love doing, which is making over-the-top content, all the while, letting you guys, the viewers, help find the next big comedy star. Our “beta” site is currently up and running. Check it out at : http://www.dfuze.tv
HOW DO WE DO IT?
DFUZE.TV has been organically growing this comedy network by developing a close-knit relationship with the stand-up comedy community in New York City. We collaborate with and develop unknown comics while sponsoring OPEN MICS. This has created a great talent pool that allows us to seek out only the best of new talent and lets us do what we do best, create hilarious irreverent comedy programming. For the comedians that we showcase, we take their traditional stand-up material and transform it into outrageous, short, shareable web series that we call NANOBITZ.
For the comedians that we do not showcase, we have created an upload section that we call D’UP™. This lets the comedians create their own individual channels to showcase their talent. The best thing about this is that you, the viewer, get to rate the content as ANGRY, FUNNY, or SMART. You, the viewer, get to decide who stays on the site and who gets the boot.
WHERE THE MONEY GOES
We have gotten this far with a lot of blood, sweat, and laughs, but we need funding to continue developing content, building out the website, and expanding the community to make it fun for you.
TV production is fueled by pizza, and we have to up our game from a one slice to a two slice lunch.
We have a backlog of NANOBITZ episodes currently in development and ready to be shot. We are also developing some cool long-format web series that are scripted and ready to go. One thing we are not short on is the talent; talent to create and talent to produce content. All we need are your donations.
Design and redesign! We need to expand and integrate a whole bunch of cool new features.
Currently, our D’UP™ section is by invite only. We need to open up this comedy focused web platform to “FUNNY PEOPLE” everywhere who have something to say. If one comic gets famous we all benefit. We need to build this out from a development standpoint; all this development, design, hosting, serving, managing, and the encoding of all of these videos and users costs money. This is where we need your help, to build and create this community from the ground up.
Once we start getting all this crazy content uploaded to the site, you gotta share it! So, we created the D’BOMB™. It’s been described as a VIRTUAL NUGGIE that you can send to your real friends. We wanted to make this a cool sharing experience; so, when your buds get it, they know its going to be funny. The E-mail version is up and running but we need to take our D’BOMB™ sharing experience to the next level. We need to develop it for sharing with all of the other social networks. This costs money for design, integration, and all that stuff.
No matter what anyone says, it costs money to get the word out.
- Flyers and Mailings
- Blog Posts and Updates
- Etc, etc, etc. …
With all of your generosity, we’ve got to give you something in return besides a few laughs. PERKS! Which also cost money to buy, manufacture, and ship to you. Click on PERKS to see the cool stuff you can get if you donate! Also, if the budget doesn’t allow you to donate, check out D’GEAR, we have some really great t-shirts and things, just in time for the Holidays. Every little bit helps.
THE GAME PLAN
With all of this going on, where does DFUZE.TV go from here? Once we begin to generate traffic and build up our viewership, advertising and merchandising [cool t-shirts and stuff at D’GEAR] revenues should start to cover most of our operating expenses. But, until then, we need your help to strengthen the foundation of this comedy network, help it to grow, and take it to the next level. And, who knows, maybe some cable network will pick up one of our shows and turn it into a sitcom that you helped create!
Now then, we’ve been planning ahead. If we exceed our funding goals here are some of the things that you can ecpect to see.
DFUZE.TV COMEDY TOUR
We plan on doing a comedy tour featuring our NANOBITZ comedians. We are planning to start small with a couple of shows in New York City and then branch out from there. NYC could use a few laughs after SANDY and you get bragging rights for funding all the comics when they were unknown.
MOBILE D’UP™ APP
We are planning to create a mobile upload app so every one can create some SPONTANIOUS COMBUSTION COMEDY using cameras on mobile devices. What ever comic insanity that is occurring real life just shoot it and hit the D’UP™ button. Your video instantly gets uploaded to your channel for everyone to see, comment upon, and rate.
The foundation is built.
This is real.
This is happening.
We not only need your DONATIONS, but we also need your ENTHUSIASM! Because we don’t have an army of social media people in cubicles liking and friending all day long, we need YOU to help us push this network forward. Please! Help Us GET THE WORD OUT.
