Watch the first parody!
What you’re helping to create:
“Skyrim: To Lydia with Love” is a fan-made parody about the companion we love to hate, and my ode to an incredible video game. As a geeky creator, I had a lot of fun making the first film, from writing the script to building my own costumes to shooting to post-production. I was very happy with the level of quality we put into it and the response Skyrim fans gave. Thank you!
320,000+ views later, fans have been asking for more!
I want to create more new parodies for you guys... AND I want all of you to be involved in their making. Every dollar you donate will help fund the production, and I'm offering some pretty cool perks in exchange for the love. Higher levels mean credits IN the film... hundreds of thousands of eyes will be on you as the kick ass supporter of the century! Something we will make you proud of.
So... what are these two new parodies about???
I will tell you they will be action packed, comedic, and stunningly gorgeous! I will refrain from telling you the actual plots... it'll be more fun to wait and see.
Oh, but Lydia will be in both parodies. I don’t go anywhere without her ass.
Just some of the cool things you'll get!
Where your money goes:
Here is what the production costs look like for the two parodies on a SAG New Media project:
Production + Creative Team = $1200
Writing the script, storyboards, production management, planning, locations and scheduling. Plus the help of a Director and Art Director, along with Sword Masters who will choreograph an *original* fight sequence...yes, SWORDS!
Crew = 1,000
Director of Photography, Script Supervisor, Sound, Boom Ops, Grips, etc. All hands on deck!
Cast = $700
Lydia! Oh wait, who else is even in this? A new character you haven’t met, and a bunch of sword fighting extras who will let me kill them.
Equipment + Location + Insurance = $2000
Camera, lenses, lights, audio & other miscellaneous equipment. We need to rent a 3-wall green screen studio to pull off the action sequence! Plus, we want these films to look AMAZING. Oh and we are going to be fighting with swords, so that insurance thing is kind of a must.
Costumes & Props = $500
Costume rentals, materials to make costumes and props. Like all the food I’ll need to buy for this one really funny scene where...
Post Production = $2500
Editing, sound design, music, game shots and special effects. This is where the fun happens... it just takes a really long time.
Craft Services = $200
Food and water! It’ll be two very long shoot days, we have a ton of people helping, a buttload of action, and we don’t want anyone really dying on set.
Safety Net = $499
Things always go wrong on set. You realize you forgot to rent a piece of equipment or need your camera dude another day.
What happens if we don’t meet our budget?
We are going to make at least one either way! The budget really just goes towards paying pros and getting really good production quality (which means good equipment). Last time, I shot this in my living room, but the good skits need a real green screen studio!
Plus the PERKS are so cool, it's worth it!

The perks are SO COOL! When will I get my goods?
Perks will take up to 3 months to get to your doorstep... here’s why:
It takes 30 days to raise funds. Then about 20-30 days to plan, shoot and complete the two films. Since a lot of the perks include behind-the-scenes footage and photos, we won’t have those until after we actually we shoot. (PS. We plan to shoot in June.)
Some of the more expensive perks (game controllers, costumes, armor) are custom made by our incredible artists, and they need about 30 days to complete their work.
Thanks for your patience!
