Help Us Make Episode 8 Great!

We're gearing up to start rolling cameras on Platoon of Power Squadron, Episode 8! For those of you who are unfamiliar with our web series, take a moment to review a quick overview of the show here:

Intro to PoPS in 90 Seconds

Small Budget, Big Production Value

We produce PoPS on a very small budget by production standards, and while it's a labor of love for our team, we definitely couldn't do it without the support of our fans. With your backing, we can continue to bring you the high quality show you've come to expect from PoPS. Without spoiling anything, there's some cool stuff slated for Episode 8, and we can't wait to show everyone what we have in store for the characters, and the story line.

Brand New Limited Edition Thank You Gifts

In addition to the usual DVDs and downloads, which we only offer during each campaign, we've got some cool new thank you gifts that we're pretty excited about.

  • For all donors of $15 or more, we offer private access to the PoPS Production Vine videos, updated during production on Episode 8.

  • An episode 8 exclusive t-shirt, designed by Claudia D.! You can see the design right here, or in the video above.

  • A special $50 thank you pack will include a “best of” pack, including NEW limited edition PoPS buttons featuring the outstanding Claudia D. design.
  • We're very excited that we're finally able to offer a limited edition PoPS poster 16"x24" during this campaign, thanks to our friend Brent K. You can see a proof of the poster at this link, or in the video above. Final prints will be signed by the cast. This printing is a limited run, so be sure get while it's good!
  • In addition to a digital replica, a limited bound copy of Jake's Episode 8 shooting script will be offered during this campaign. Jake's final director's notes and scribbles will be included in this   hand-numbered volume,  signed by the PoPS cast. 

Thank You!

As always, we can't make this show without the enthusiasm and support of our audience. Please keep spreading the word about PoPS, and this campaign! From the bottoms of our superhero hearts, we thank you!

-Jake and the PoPS Production Team
