A bootstraps TV production company has announced it is planning to begin shooting a pilot program called “Coastal Disturbances,” a series using Lincoln County’s beautiful coastal scenery as a backdrop. The new series chronicles stories of political intrigue, scandal, murder and all the rest as covered by the local newspaper.
According to the production company’s Facebook page and website, they’re using web based fundraising techniques to make the pilot possible. Here’s what their website says:
Independent pilot Coastal Disturbances, has launched a major fundraising effort with a Kickstarter campaign, accompanied by a Facebook page and promotions across the web. Other contributor, supporter, and general interest features include news, photos, video clips, and special offers.
Set to film near Lincoln City, Oregon, the production’s cast of professionals, predominantly Northwest actors, includes an Emmy nominee and veterans with major film and TV experience, and is backed by an award-winning technical staff.
The company’s web page says as production draws closer, cast biographies and photos will appear on their website and Facebook page on a more or less random basis. Production Fan pages will carry more information the front page will feature brief entries from time to time. The website goes on to say that Facebook fans will find additional information, and Kickstarter supporters at various levels will get exclusive access to daily blog and video clips.
I guess we should say…stay tuned.
