Have Sword,Will Travel begins in the year 2036 when a brilliant scientist named Dr. Ocularis accidently figures out how to Time Travel. Soon afterwards the Doctors computer data banks with this knowledge are hacked and the Time Teleportation files are stolen and sold to the highest bidders, mostly the rich and powerful on the open Black Market. The T.T.R.C. (Time Travel Regulation Commitee) is formed to regulate this knowledge but to no avail. It has already fallen into too many of the wrong hands. Time Teleportation is now being used by bad elements for their own greedy and demented ways disrupting and manipulating our history as well as stealing whatever they wish. Starcom, a military organization of professional soldiers and scientists are ordered by the T.T.R.C. to travel anywhere in time to capture or relocate the criminal elements and set history back on line. Colonel Hawk, now retired from Starcom is ordered back into service to help with this overwhelming task. Colonel Hawk, a master swordsman as well as experienced soldier puts together a team of talented agents from the Academy and proceeds on to bring justice to those who use Time Travel for evil. These are their adventures. .......
What We Need & What You Get
Now, Why we are here. We basically need a High Def camera. I have shot over 80 episodes with an old DV camera with absolutely NO BUDGET. The rest of the money we earn will go towards materials for costumes, feed for the livestock performers, locations, lights, food, professional talent and possibly an up grade in editing software. We basically wish to upgrade the production quality and take this webseries to another level and perhaps pitch for a television series in 3D. I personally would like to do something special for the cast of H.S.W.T. for the outstanding efforts they all have put towards the show filming long hours in all weather conditions and even on holidays with or without Rattlesnakes only asking for a smile in return. We also can bring employment to out of work actors, crew and stunt performers which is so badly needed. We first will make a High Quality/ High Def 30 minute pilot in which we could earn more money which would enable us to keep this wonderful and exciting series going. I could really use some help also since I write, direct, produce, film and edit the series. I make the props, sets and costumes, do the make up and all the while acting and doing stunts.....I NEED YOUR HELP!... HEY? if I can do all this without a dime, Nada.. zilch....Then think of what I could do if I had just a minimal amount of funding......Please...It just takes one person with a brain to see the potential this show has....Look at some of our episodes on the links I have provided and see that this could be huge!...Have some vision and realize that it wasn't easy for me to make 80 episodes to show you my ideas with no budget.Try and read between the lines and say "Hey, This show would be great if they just had some money"....See the potential and what we can do together..............I believe "There is a piece of the pie for everyone"..... Please help if you can. "Rather light a Candle than complain about darkness"
Other Ways You Can Help
Ok, I know our perks are not that great but we are very sincere....You all mean a great deal to us and so does your money....Hey, if you cannot contribute we still love you and you are still very much in our family as well as our hearts....I know if things were better for you, you would contribute if you could....You could however help us out in other ways like promoting us when you can.
