12pm PST - 8pm PST
Rob Gokee and Allison Vanore have set out to raise money for original series, Replaced, by Heath Vinyard, and for short film, A Boy's Life, by Eli Benavidez. Why? Well, why not?! Allison is producing both projects and Rob is composing music for Replaced so it seems only fitting that we'd find some way to bring tacos into the mix to raise money for this great cause. Here's the run-down:
On the day of the TACOathon, we make note of the IndieGoGo Campaign totals for each project. From the time we begin, 12pm Wednesday, January 12, 2011, for every $50 raised for each project (can be multiple donors), the corresponding rep will eat a taco. The max number of tacos for each project will be 20. Yes, 20 TACOS!!
Team Replaced: Rob Gokee
Team A Boy's Life: Allison Vanore
This exciting event will be broadcast live on U-Stream for 8 whole hours! In order to keep things exciting and fun, we've invited familiar faces to join us! Throughout the day you will not only hear from Rob and Allison but interviews with the following people:
Vianessa Castanos, actress in Just Jamaal & A Note To Etienne
Laurie Records, casting director for Replaced Series, SOLO The Series
Sheila Daley, actress in SOLO The Series, Brownie Points
Alicia Ying, actress/producer of It's Always Greener
Robb Padgett, actor/creator of Vampire Zombie Werewolf
Jamie Fishback, actor in End Result, 1000 Ways to Die
FEATURED GUEST: Elias Benavidez, writer/director of A Boy's Life
FEATURED GUEST: Heath Vinyard, writer/director of Replaced Series
and few other guests that may pop in!
Our goal is to raise $1000 for each project. ALSO, the winning team will get $100 from the losing team. Max prize is $1100! Of course, if we get additional donors we welcome that as well! We hope that by next Wednesday we have raised enough on IndieGoGo that our goals will be reached by the time we end our TACOathon!
In order for your donation to count toward the TACOathon, you must donate between 12pm and 8pm on Wednesday, January 12, 2011. Of course, donations are greatly appreciated and encouraged between now and then as well!
This event is brought to you by Allison Vanore, Rob Gokee, and Diane Beck.
