Everyone has been in an elevator at some point in their life. They are everywhere. Malls, hotels, offices, hospitals, restaurants, theaters, subways, airports, and even gyms have elevators. There are so many unique people coming and going all the time. Anything could happen! Everyone has a story to tell and we want to share them with you. We have put together small vignettes based on true stories about funny things that happen in them.
With your collaboration you will help tell the real life stories of unfortunate, awkward and plain out weird events that happen in the comfort of your every day elevator. From the white collar worker who is late for a meeting to that uncomfortable moment when the elevator is just too full, these stories need to be told.
We need to build our Elevator. After extensive research, we have discovered it is less expensive to build our own and rent studio space than rent and insure an existing elevator. In addition this gives us the ability to work long hours without inconveniencing people and without restrictions.
We already have an amazing cast and crew put together but we need your help. We can’t do this alone so we launched this Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for:
- Crew- Camera, lights, sound & makeup Dept.
- Studio Space
- Building our set
There are many unique perks available! We have customized Going Up? Buttons, magnets, posters and to the “Penthouse Suite” and above floors we are offering handmade puppets. There is even a perk to have a role in our web series!
That’s not the only way you can help! You can also spread the word by sharing this fundraiser with your friends, family or elevator companions. Don’t forget to like us on Facebook and check out our updates!
