A few years ago, three Standard Run-of-the-Mill White F***sticks met each other through some stupid meaningless coincidence.
After shooting the breeze, followed by a turbulent period of near-physical violence, and finally a cross-country road trip, Sam Hyde, Nick Rochefort, and Charles Carroll congealed into a tight little video production unit.
We've spent the past three years making YouTube comedy. It's locally grown, 100% sustainable, advertising-free, grassroots television. [Cue indie ukulele music from Apple commercial.]
We could really use your help. Thanks to our own cunning/resourcefulness/lack of dignity, we've scraped together about six-thousand clams. According to these precise calculations, we are approximately $2-3000 away from the indie shooter set-up of our dreams.
Long story short, when we have this gear, we will be all set to continue producing funny, free content, at a logarithmically higher standard of quality.
Support excellence. Support our scream against the night--our rail against the tide of mainstream filth. Support M.D.E.
We are the men who make the comedy that you deserve, the comedy you've been expecting all these years, and you didn't even know it. We will alienate ourselves from our families and s*** on our own reputations and burn every bridge and kick our grandmothers in the p***ies like Steve Jobs so that you get the content you deserve. We will walk through walls and crash cars head on, so that when you sit down at your c**-stained Alienware M17x, you can have yourself a little f***ing giggle fest.
And maybe in doing so, you'll be reminded that you're a king, and you deserve b***jobs and golden AK-47s, and maybe you'll learn the lessons and get those things... or maybe you'll just enjoy some funny videos.
That's what's at stake here. If we win the prize, then you win the game, and the whole world doesn't collapse into Super Nuclear War.
What We're Asking For
That's rougly $8225, about $6000 of which we have. The rest is up to you. Anything extra will be strictly used for the show. Airfare to LA, film festival submission fees, stuff like that. If you give us more than $5000, then that's a budget we haven't thought about yet, but none of your money will be spent on personal/stupid stuff. We have that winning combo of dedicated+miserly, that ensures all funding will be used with Maximal Effectiveness.
The computer we edit and do graphics on is four years old, and at some point the processor or motherboard is going to break--it would be nice to be ready for that when it happens.
Bless you to Heaven for even reading this far. We love our fans 100% in a gay way and s*** their d***s all day. Please, if you have a decent bone in your body, send this to your friends and relatives and tell them that if they don't donate you will the school.
And remember kids, MILLION DOLLAR EXTREME NEVER DIES!
