First off, the show will be shooting in Los Angeles and I am going to
make an exerted effort to use as much talent on both sides of the
camera as I can.
I already have my first
commitment to air the pilot and series "The Pin Up" on MaddyGTV and our
first sponsor is One of the Biggest Camera Store's in LA, who will be
supplying all the equipment needed to shoot the pilot and the on going
series. But as I said, I want to be able to change things up and
use as much new talent and industry as I can to keep this show fresh
and innovative! We will be shooting the show in 4K.
Funding is my main problem getting this off the ground... I am still
looking for 35K, the basic funding I need to shoot the Pilot episode
right and of course pay for the cast, crew and studio. VC funding could
work, but would love
to partner with the right Exec. Producer who can share my vision for
this unique project. **To be honest, I need
a producer that is not afraid to actually have to do some work,
which means hustle this project and
help make this happen, and of course, someone who can also fund the
Pilot.** Persoanlly, and I'm sorry to say, most "established"
producers seemed to want to start with a finished and already polished
project when what I need is their help to polish it! I
can't hand you a silver platter. But with a little effort from
both of us, you can help me make a platter
that is not just silver, but one of gold!
The Pilot is budgeted at a very modest
35K. If you know the reality market, 35K is a fraction of what
most of today's decent reality shows cost to produce per episode. Despite the fact that most decent reality shows seem to start at 150K to do an episode, I really don't need that kind of budget to make this happen and do it right. (I worked for Roger Corman in the 80's and some of his bare bones budgeting savvy rubbed off.)
For the first season at least, I actually expect the per episode costs
to be 20K or under because we will shoot alike segments of the shows in
groups, and back to back. That will also give me a little more time to
create the actual art work for each show. I have no doubt, the shows
budget will grow in short time as the show gains more sponsors,
stations and networks and popularity.
commitment I got to air the pilot was based on the concept alone and
the quality of my art work. Everybody loves this concept and as a
past Playboy Photographer and a long time Pin Up Artist, and now a
Multimedia 3D Artist, I am in a unique position to make this happen,
and take it to another level.
Yes, there will be playboy style nudity involved. All very tasteful.
Again, this show already has a commitment to air the pilot and series,
so the pilot has a window to the world, hopefully to help it quickly
grow. But I need a good Production Partner, an Executive Producer
that can get this show out there and help me make this the show
everything I know it can be!
