This post is on behalf of good-sirs Wilder Shaw and Ezra Edmond, who are in the midst of a crowdsourcing campaign for a web mini-series with a lot of heart and a lot of—metaphorical—balls. I love these guys, I love this project, and I love metanarratives: it’s a project about following your dreams, in the midst of the creators following theirs!:
Why do you need so many munnies?
We shot the first two episodes out of our own pockets and nearly bankrupted ourselves. To make the next eight episodes and finish Season 1’s story, we need some of your hard-earned American dollhairs.
"But how could you need so much money for just a simple web-series?"
Good question, passing glancer! I’ll tell ya.
We budgeted each episode at about 3k - some a little more, some a little less. This money goes to cameras, lights, sound equipment, makeup equipment, hard drives to store footage on, props, costumes, food, the ever expensive monster that is post-production, and all the other goodies of filmmaking. We’d also love to pay our cast and crew a little something for their dedication and hard work.
Take a look at our perks! We hope you like at least one of them. Preferably the most expensive one.
Check out the first two episodes and support the good work.

Major ups to our good friend and “official” scribe of the Bay Area comedy scene OJ Patterson for giving Semi-Famous a shout out.
We’re pushing towards locking in Episode 4, y’all! Woo!
If you don’t follow his blog Courting Comedy, make sure you do. You won’t be disappointed.
After two years of hard work, we’re ready to rock and roll. All night long. Sweet Suzie.
Episode 1 is up right now, and Episode 2 will be up next week! And if you love it, throw us ten million dollars to make the next eight.
Ezra and I could not be prouder of how these two episodes came out, and we hope you can help us reach our goal. And, as of now with the donations we’ve reached, we’re officially locked in for Episode 3! Help us make the crawl towards locking down Episode 4!
Thank you all so much for your support! We love you all equally. Well, except for GOB. We never much cared for him.
