Real Quick...My name is Anthony. I've written for the TV shows The Office (season 4 & 5) and Little Mosque on the Prairie (season 5). Dwelling is a web series I created. I funded the first 8 webisodes myself and I really need your help to make some more.
What We Need & What You Get
So far we've filmed 2 episodes that we've cut into 8 webisodes. We have 6 MORE episodes to shoot (total of 24 webisodes). At roughly $2000 per episode, we'd need a little over $12,000 to shoot the rest of our first season.
The money, unfortunately, won't be enough to pay everyone that works on the show. It will cover the cost of equipment, food, locations and post-production. It will ensure that the industry professionals who are already donating their time as the cast and crew of the series will be given the right tools to make Dwelling look like a Network TV show for a fraction of the cost. Actually, a fraction of a fraction of the cost.If we don't reach our goal, we will use whatever funds we receive to shoot as many episodes as we can. Your donation will not go to waste.
Last year our show entered a web series contest on Metacafe. Over the span of 1 month, 7 different web series were voted on by the viewers. Dwelling received over 1 MILLION views and garnered 34% of the votes. The 2nd place web series got 14%. Metacafe then promised to film more episodes to be seen exclusively on Metacafe. Sadly, it's been a year and no funds have materialized. That is why we're taking to IndieGoGo to raise the funds on our own.
This show uses both experienced professionals and people who want to gain experience so they can become professionals. It's kind of like a teaching hospital that way. It's important to me that I open doors for people the same way doors were opened for me. They gain valuable work experience and we get an amazing and dedicated crew. Win-Win.
Our hope is to put together a show that is as good as anything on television and distribute it on the internet. We're proud of our show and excited about the prospect of getting everyone back together to make more.
