It's "New Girl" with fairies!
"The New Adventures of Peter and Wendy" is a modern adaptation of the timeless novel “Peter and Wendy”, by J.M. Barrie. Season One just finished airing (that means it's ripe for binge-watching!) on our youtube channel EpicRobotTV. You can watch the trailer here. And if you want to just jump in and watch the show, here's the first episode. (Or even better, start with the prologue!)
Everyone has to grow up, right? Well, not if Peter Pan has anything to say about it! Peter, a late-twenties man-child and comic book artist living in the small town of Neverland Ohio, has three life goals: 1) NEVER GROW UP. 2) Have as much fun as humanly possible while doing as little work as possible. 3) Win the heart of his best friend, Wendy Darling. With his friends John, Michael, Lily and his fairy, Tinkerbell, Peter is nailing goals 1 and 2. Goal 3, however, is a bit trickier. Wendy Darling, an advice vlogger and overall go-getter, is tired of the never-changing small town of Neverland Ohio and wants to see the world, to become… an adult. It’s Peter vs Growing Up in the battle for Wendy! But is growing up really the enemy? Or is it the solution?

Hello Neverlandians (and others!) and welcome to our Indiegogo campaign for the fate of Peter and Wendy! To finish out the story, we really want to make two more full seasons of "The New Adventures of Peter and Wendy".
- If we make less than $55,000: we will still make season two but it will be much shorter than we want it to be.
- If we make our goal of $55,000: we will make a full 24 episode season two, full of laughs and tears and captains of the hook variety.
- If we make a stretch goal of $110,000: we will make a full season two AND season three... with minimal break between airing them. This is the goal that gives me chills!
- More stretch goals? let's get to that first one and then we'll talk.
Second season to the right and straight on til morning.
We are asking for $55,000 for Season Two (or $110,000 to film both Seasons Two and Three.) This is more than we have asked for in the past, but we know this will let us achieve the quality and sustainability of a magical close to our trilogy.
Crowd-funding is going to be the only way we can continue making the show, but we understand that it may seem mysterious where so much money is going. Below is a budget breakdown for Seasons Two and Three.
Explanation of the categories in the pie chart (yum! pie!):
- Crowdfunding: Indiegogo takes out 4%, Credit Card Processing is 3-5%, making and shipping all of the perks!
- Cast: Our talented cast, union fees, etc
- Crew: Our amazing crew (Director, Assistant Director, Cinematographer, Producers, Production Designer, Costume Designer, Sound, Assistants, etc)
- Production: Rental of lights and camera/sound equipment, Location fees, props, wardrobe, set construction, etc
- Post-Production: Editing, Harddrives, Audio Mixing, Music Composition, Color Correcting, etc
- Distribution: Advertising, Festival/Award submission fees, Publicist, Postcards, Screenings, Website + Online Presence Maintenance, Transmedia elements, etc
- Just in Case: Budgets are always estimates, so it's good to have some padding... you never know when space pirates may attack and you'll need a bribing fee.
To keep this in perspective... here's a breakdown of relative budgets per hour of content
(idea borrowed from the VGHS Indiegogo page... but that's okay because we share a cast member)
- OUR Seasons 2 and 3: $36,700 per hour of content
- Average US Sitcom: $3,200,000 per hour of content
- House of Cards: $4,600,000 per hour of content
- Avengers: $174,000,000 per hour of content
The cast includes the talented Paula Rhodes (ElfQuest, Barbie) as Wendy Darling, Brennan Murray (VGHS, Cougar Town) as Michael Darling, Graham Kurtz (Glee, 30 Rock) as John Darling and Lovlee Carroll (Grey's Anatomy, The Mindy Project) as Lily Bagha. Oh, yeah, there's also that scoundrel fairy, Tinker Bell.
Seasons Two and Three will bring more cast members... more on that soon.
It takes a lot of faith to donate to filmmakers. Let's face it, lots of things can come up that may block production. Y'know, like zombie apocalypses. If this happens, let's meet at Humanity's Last Stand, and I will tell you the rest of the story over twinkies and fried cockroaches.
What we CAN guarantee is that less than a year ago we did a crowdfunding campaign (on "the other" site) and we delivered. 26 Episodes (basically the length of a feature film) written, filmed AND distributed. Now that's magical.
But don't take our word for it!
