Our 5th and final episode, “Greg”, is now floating around the wilds of the internet (like Sidereel for example) for your viewing pleasure. A lot of people have asked me what the future of the show holds and what happens next. So here is what our lovely production team has in store for the coming months:
1. Some well deserved R & R.
It may seem like we took our sweet time producing the first season and while on some level that is true, all of our cast and crew have day jobs, significant others, families, real lives, etc. outside of the show and basically every spare moment over the last 4 and a half months have been utilized to shoot a scene here or there, work on a quick re-write, secure a location, cast a guest role, buy props or sneak in time in the editing room. We are going to take a straight up break for a while to re-charge our batteries and get some space away from the grind of producing a full length indie TV show.
2. But we’re also going to be working on shit.
We’re also going to be spending our RAF downtime doing other, non-relaxing things. For example, I’m working on a long gestating feature length comedy script with my fellow RAF producer/co-writer/BFF Colin Thiel. Devin will be working on his own comedy career/Canadian mattress commercials/various shows including his brand spanking new sketch show “Idiot Brotherz” which is rad. Mikiech will be doing various short film/sketch acting thingys cause he’s good at actor-ating. Sierra has a plethora of modeling and acting work that keeps her busy and you should support everything she does. Eric will take a well deserved break pulling double duty as an actor as well as producer/writer (and sometimes composer) before coming back in all 3 and half capacities in our 2nd season.
3. Yes, we are making a second season.
We are tentatively planning on making another 5 episodes of the show in the fall. We are getting some new gear this summer including a brand spanking new camera, a new mic, more lights, etc. This means that the show will (hopefully) look and sound a little better. We are also going to put our new gear to work to re-shoot/produce a brand new version of the pilot episode to pitch to various networks/pilot competitions in the fall. However, all this will require a little more money than we just have lying around so expect a link to a Kickstarter campaign seeking public donations for our second season budget in the coming weeks. We aren’t going to be pulling a Zach Braff though and ask for millions of dollars, our goal will be very reasonable and I hope you seriously consider helping us reach it. We’d like to not struggle to feed everybody or have to use Coinstar to pay for gas money for our crew this time around.
4. There will be more RAF swag/internet presence.
We did the first season to, more or less, just see if we could. I literally woke up one morning and said “hey, I like sitcoms…why don’t I just make one?”. We didn’t really give ourselves a budget or personell to handle promotion and/or swag. Now that we are getting some production help we can devote more time to social media, t-shirts/posters, etc. Stay tuned for more info on this realm and (spoiler alert) if you donate to our Kickstarter for season 2 you might just get a sneak peak at these so called “tee” “shirts”.
Thanks for watching, paying attention and generally not telling us to go fuck ourselves,
