The New Project

26 Jun

I’ve been working on a new project for a couple of years now (which I guess means it’s no longer “new,” but anyway). It’s part of my dream to be a creator of cool things.  For a while, the project didn’t really go anywhere.  It was a good idea, but we didn’t have the means to implement it.

Until about a month ago.

All of a sudden, things started happening on this project.  Pieces started to fall into place, and the way to make it a reality finally became clear.  Even then, I was hesitant to talk about the project, because I was afraid that everything would fall apart and I’d be left with broken words.

I was also afraid that people wouldn’t understand what we were doing.  Not because the project is unconventional or controversial, but because a large part of my OCD is anxiety over how other people perceive me.  I get stuck in loops of worrying over how someone will take a single word choice, and the more stressed I get, the harder it is to break the cycle.

But you know what? It’s time to stop being afraid.  The only reason we’ve made progress on this project is because we finally got up the nerve to ask for things to happen.

So, faithful blog readers, here it is. The new project.

Life Online

If you watched that and got all excited or wanted to learn more, I have really good news for you. (If you watched that and didn’t have such a reaction, this news will probably not help you.)

We are in production on the series.  The scripts are written, the actors are cast, the sets are built, the lights are about to be hung (I hope…), and the costumes are planned.  But we’re still in need of some help.

Specifically, we’re in need of some financial help.  The camera and audio rental is going to cost us $500.  We’ve put up a fundraising site to help raise the money, and we’re already halfway there, but if we don’t make our goal, the camera and mics will have to go back early.

This means that even though we have a volunteer cast and crew and donated space, we could still miss out on making this happen simply because we don’t have a camera to film with.

I’m not very good as asking people for money, but if you have $5 to spare, that will get us an extra day with the mics. $10 gets us an extra day with the camera. As a bonus, all donors will get their names in the credits of the show, listed on our Sponsors page of the website, and maybe even in the show itself.  We’re also releasing bonus sneak peeks of the show for every $100 that we raise.

If you can help us out, the donation site is http://www.gofundme.com/LifeOnline.  If you can’t donate, please help us by spreading the word on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, carrier pigeon, skywriting, or whatever other means of communication you like.  Every dollar we raise goes to making the show, and earns you the undying gratitude of the 15 people involved in the project.

You can also follow the production news on Facebook by liking Symbios Productions, or on Twitter by following @SymbiosCo.

Thank you.
