Basic Adventuring 101: The Kickstarter is Coming...


So, there's a reason I can't be around as much as I like, and that has to do with the web series I am producing! Basic Adventuring 101 is a fictional web series that represents LARPers the way we actually want to be represented. We start our Kickstarter campaign this week, and I would love for anyone interested to become involved. I'll put up a link to the campaign once it goes live, but in the meantime, check out the Facebook page.

I also thought I would share a little of the fun we've been having making our campaign video. And yes. That's me:

LMAO... Niiiice!! Reminds me

LMAO... Niiiice!!

Reminds me of the many hours I would practice our 'scripted routines' for the Minnesota Renaissance Faire, only to have someone come wandering by and improv something at us, totally throwing us off.

Was all good though, and made things fun by keeping us on our toes.

Good luck...

And as tradition goes... HUZZAH!!

Stupid stink bug.

I later discovered that it was actually dead...and have yet to remove it. So it's still watching from the ceiling everytime I go in there. >.>

The Kickstarter Has Launched!

The Kickstarter has launched, and as of this morning we already have $655 out of our $5300 goal!

 In order to make this project a reality, I am looking for funding to create the pilot episode.  I have chosen to do this through a crowdfunding source, Kickstarter. Kickstarter is a site that allows creative people to create projects, and through the support of backers, raise the money needed for their project to succeed.  The catch? If I can't raise my $5300 goal by May 5, I will not receive any of the pledged money.  This is an all-or-nothing system, so without you this won't be possible. 

Please contribute by pledging whatever amount you can.  Even $1 is appreciated!

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/kristinbrumley/basic-adventuring-101-larp-webseries-pilot

 

Even if you cannot pledge, you can help me by printing a flyer and hanging it up! Or you can tell your friends and the people you work with about my project.  Like us on Facebook or subscribe to us on YouTube and share us on your wall!  Spreading the word can be just as important as contributing.

This is my dream to create a web series, and it is with great humility that I ask for your support. I thank you for your time and consideration, and hope that you will become a founder in what will become my greatest successful endeavor to date.

 

Kristin
