This week, Angie and Nicky are in Texas writing the six episodes of season 2. The crazy thing about writing a mockumentary is that there really is no official script. "Then what the heck are you doing all week?" If you've ever seen one of the Christopher Guest mockumentaries like "A Mighty Wind," "This is Spinal Tap," "Best in Show," or "Waiting for Guffman," then you know the film has a framework, but the lines are really improvised. So what we are doing is developing the framework for each sketch -- you know, a storyline and whatnot. And by the way, if you haven't seen any of the Guest mockumentaries, you really need to.
Last week we closed our first round of fundraising: the online silent auction. Although we didn't meet our goal, we did create a nice funding base and people donated some really cool items! Thank you so much to everyone who donated, as well as bid!
Yesterday we kicked off our primary fundraiser, the Indiegogo campaign. Those of you who were with us last year may remember it was a success and we met our goal. We had a higher goal because our expenses were significantly more expensive. This year, we have fewer needs and less people involved. That means a lower budget. As we type this, we have already raised $200 of the $3,000 goal -- not bad for the first day! The campaign closes on Monday, May 13.
If you haven't watched our promo video, here it is. If you'd like to help us by making a donation in ANY amount, please click here. Seriously, friends ... any amount will help us reach the goal.
In case you're wondering what else we've been doing, here's a little taste of how we like to spend our time together. Please note, the call is FAKE -- it's Nicky's mom on the other line. Don't start calling us terrible names or thinking we're mean or anything. We just become 13-year-old boys when we're together.
Thank you! We love you!
