WHAT IS THE ANNEX?
The Annex is a riveting, ground-breaking, and all-original Canadian sci-fi webseries that will blow the minds of audiences all around the world by using a combination of intense visual FX, exciting action, and enthralling story-telling,
WHAT IS THE ANNEX ABOUT?
The webseries takes place in the far future, just after an economically devastating Third World War, in a megacity called The Annex.
The Annex follows a young Chinese street kid who, after taking refuge in the megacity, has discovered that he has become the center of a global conspiracy to make him the living human host for the first artificial intelligence.
WHO EXACTLY IS TRYING TO MAKE THIS WEBSERIES?
Good question! Allow us to introduce ourselves -- we are James Anthony Young and Nikolas Benn, cofounders of Spiderclown Productions, an independent Toronto production company.
We believe that Canadian storytelling should not be constrained to modern family dramas, quirky existential discussions of the human condition or even to planet Earth itself. We believe that stories should go wherever imagination takes them and we focus on exceptional production quality to share these stories with the world.
We bring years of practical experience to this project and have extensive experience putting together convincing Visual FX, intense action sequences and slick production values.
WHAT WILL MY CONTRIBUTION HELP TO ACHIEVE?
We are impressed with the quality of Canadian webseries, but we want to continue to push that bar even higher by striving to accomplish something more than just another low-budget drama or sketch comedy YouTube channel.
We want The Annex to move the Canadian webseries domain into the bigger international arena, competing with filmmakers south of the border and the rest of the world, as much as here on our own turf.
But, above all, we want to make something that you will find entertaining to watch, as well as something to be proud of. In short, your contribution will help us make the pilot for The Annex as polished, exciting and as ground breaking as we possibly can!
WE HAVE ALREADY RAISED $8000 CAD!
We have been in pre-production on The Annex for almost a full year and people already believe in this project as much as we do! This is why we have procured funding from not only our own pockets, but from private investment as well!
In the interest of full disclosure our total budget for The Annex pilot is $13,000 CAD and we have already raised about 75% of this!
Typically the budget for a project of this size and quality would be $20,000 - $30,000 CAD. But our exceptional cast and crew, all of them industry professionals, have graciously decided to donate their time and expertise to make The Annex a reality.
But we need YOUR help to secure the last $5000 CAD push to make the production's shoot date in October 2013 happen!
I HAVE NO MONEY - CAN I STILL HELP?
Yes of course! We love your enthusiasm! A great way to help would be to share this campaign with your friends on...
Good old-fashioned word of mouth, email or whatever!
(We personally love Reddit... in fact, we might spend a little too much time there sometimes...)
Don't forget to use the handy-dandy Indiegogo share tools!
Please help us spread the word! The Annex is going to change the face of Canadian webseries!
OUR PROMISE TO YOU:
The Annex promises to be the next step in the evolution of Canadian webseries.
We promise to set the bar high -- as high as we can. Not only so that our story is told properly, but so that other Canadian filmmakers may be inspired to do the same.
We promise to make The Annex pilot a great watch! Not only are we filmmakers, but we are viewers too and we strive to make our projects as entertaining as possible.
But, we cannot do any of this without your help! Thanks so much in advance for your support!
