kickstarter campaign: millions web series

I recently heard from Andrew Chung, a Toronto-based filmmaker who is currently raising funds to produce an original web series project called Millions. It sounds interesting, so I thought I'd help spread the word...

In Andrew's words, Millions is about "a group of six Asian North American suburbanites that go on a quest to become millionaires after one of their friends dies. It's ultimately about a group of friends that just want to make something of themselves, and how money can fuel or destroy that." Here's some more information:

My name's Andrew, and I like to make up crazy ass words. Luckily, I'm a writer, and I'm here to raise money for a project that I've been working on for many years now. It's called MILLIONS. It's a dramedy about six suburbanite friends that embark on an ambitious but dangerous journey to become millionaires before they turn 30. It's like Entourage in a suburban setting, but with a dark Sopranos twist. It's a series ultimately about our dreams and how money can fuel or destroy them depending on the path we choose. The story is made up of an ensemble cast and is character driven first and foremost. As an artist this is a project very near and dear to my heart, because although it's highly fictionalized, it's very personal to me. I'm here to graciously ask for your contributions if you think it's as exciting and intriguing a project as I do. I am biased of course.

The first season is entirely written, and we've assembled an extremely talented and experienced crew, who are ready to go to work. But financing is our last missing piece of the puzzle. We're here to raise $8,000 in 32 days (until October 29) to help fund at least our first episode. With it, my ambition is to create an exceptionally entertaining show that can stand proudly next to most TV shows out there. It's a show made for the twenty-something generation struggling to find a place in a society that worships money and youth.
They've got scripts for the entire first season, and they've assembled a talented to crew to make it all happen. Now all they need is the cash. That's where they're putting the call out for help. And that's where you come in...

They've posted a sample trailer on their Kickstarter page to give you an idea of what they're going for. At the moment, they've got 33 backers who have pledged $5,111 towards their goal. But if they don't raise the $8,000 by the end of this month, October 29, or they get nothing.

So if you'd like to pledge a little something to help them out, or just learn more about the project, head over to the Kickstarter page here and the official Millions website here.
