Help Fund A New Web Series - Damsels & Dragons

Are you a gamer or a fantasy fan?

Do you watch The Guild, Awkward Embraces and other web-series that showcase geek-life?

Do you enjoy series about strong, smart women sticking it to the society that tries to tell them what they can or can't do?

Have you ever, like Leopold Bloom, harbored a secret desire to be a Producer?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes and you have at least five bucks to spare, then I have got a deal for you!

Originally produced in 2008, Damsels and Dragons was the brain child of actors America Young and April Wade. The series reached the attention of Awkward Embraces' Jessica Mills, who approached Young about helping produce a second season. The ball began rolling and now a second season is in pre-production, with a dream-team of talent behind it. In addition to Young and Mills, the show will feature scripts by original Damsels and Dragons author Eric Collin Campbell and be directed by Greg Aronowitz, who has worked on both The Guild and the Dragon Age: Redemption as a director and executive producer respectively.

Sound exciting? It gets even better!

For the next two months, they'll be taking donations to fund the series. And what do you get for your money apart from the knowledge that you're helping to bring what promises to be an amazing bit of entertainment to fruition? Like most things in life, it depends on how much you're willing to invest in it.

For five American Dollars, you will get a personal thank you on Facebook or Twitter, talking about how awesome you are. For ten American Dollars, you get the personal shout-out on Facebook and Twitter AND a personal e-mail letter of thanks with a photo of the creative team thus far holding swords. This goes all the way up to the grand $1000 donation which gets you (among other things) a producer credit on the show and a role as an extra in the show!

So please - give generously. Give often. And help support geek culture. Thank you.
