This week I'm launching the IndieGoGo campaign for Replaced Series in order to raise money to shoot pilot episodes of this show. What is Replaced about? Here's a summary: Still grieving from the death of his son and the divorce from his wife that ensued from the tragedy, U.S. Marshal Alexander Finche (Jon Briddell) finds himself the target in a genetic conspiracy and framed for a murder he didn't commit.

Replaced Series

Starring: Jon Briddell, Lisa Catara, Harrison White and John T. Cogan

Creator/Director/Producer: Heath Vinyard

Producer: Allison Vanore

Dir. of Photography/Producer: Jorge Bicer

There is much debate and discussion over the monetization of video content on the web - even just today there were discussions at the NewTeeVee Conference on this topic.  Brands, studios and distribution companies are slowly seeing our medium as a viable way to make money.  Our community is making entertaining, well written and well acted content and our audience is growing.  We're figuring out how to brand, promote and market our shows to our massive global audience.

While we continue to pitch and promote our shows we also need to keep doing what we do best.  Tell stories.  We're committed to telling stories that are unique and inspiring and we aim to build a positive creative force and an engaged fan base behind them.

This week we are launching the IndieGoGo campaign for Replaced Series in order to raise money to shoot pilot episodes of this show.  We have received funds from a private source and so this fund raising campaign will serve as Gap funding to reach our budgetary goal.  We know that with a show like this we can find an audience.

What is Replaced about?  Here's a summary:

Still grieving from the death of his son and the divorce from his wife that ensued from the tragedy, U.S. Marshal Alexander Finche (Jon Briddell) finds himself the target in a genetic conspiracy and framed for a murder he didn't commit.

Alex leads a fugitive case and crosses paths with a former geneticist, but now convicted felon Jesse Sinclair (John T. Cogan), who was once an integral part of the plot against Alex, but has now been cast out of the organization, discredited and humiliated in front of his former peers. Alex and his partner Samantha Baine (Lisa Catara) are on the trail of a man named Darren Anderson, a powerful person with whom Sinclair is very familiar and whom he fears. Sinclair knows about Alex’s past, his divorce, the death of his son, and how his life has spiraled out of control since searching for Anderson.

On the hunt for Alex is an ex-military Special Forces veteran, Carter Bell, who now heads a government sanctioned private military agency. Bell, instrumental in causing the death of Alex’s son, is relentless and will stop at nothing to capture Alex, even killing those that stand in his way. Those that are not killed are simply REPLACED.

Now on the run with his own longtime partner Sam hunting him, Alex must unravel the plot against him, clear his name, and find the elusive architect behind this massive conspiracy that reaches the highest levels he didn't think possible.

With $8,500 in additional funds our team will be able to deliver top notch, exciting drama as seen in Vinyard's End Result and a collection of talent brought together by Casting Director, Laurie Records (SOLO The Series).  Together with Producer, Allison Vanore (SOLO The Series, Hopelessly in June) this team is unstoppable.  This may just be the next successful show on the web.

To donate a few bucks (or an entire suitcase full) please visit our IndieGoGo campaign for Replaced Series.

Tuesday and Wednesday night SOLO screened to a packed audience along side Gentrification, a pilot about two young Caucasian families in LA who recently moved to Highland Park.  The comedy is found in the juxtaposition of the white families (with their Prius driving, private school submitting selves) and their Hispanic neighbors.   The other pilot we shared a slot with was Greg and Donny.  This comedy takes place in Pennsylvania where the characters are more like caricatures of the people the creators grew up around.  Lots of laughs all around for the three comedies in our block!

Today is Digital Day so we head into NYC to attend a day of panel discussions and screenings later tonight.  Tonight Gold: Night of the Zombie King screens so we'll be there supporting our friends, Stephanie Thorpe, Taryn O'Neill, David Nett and Frederick Snyder!

Tomorrow night is the award show where NYTVF will be announcing pilot winners and the famous People's Choice Award!  Wish us luck!

Congratulations to the cast and crew of "Hopelessly in June" for an amazing end of production! We have such a great support system and invaluable resources - couldn't have done it without you all!

Executive Producers, Jerry Mosley, Vincent Brantley & Jay Vetter with Lead Actress, Carolyn Neff

Our last days of production were our biggest yet! We had such talented actors join the team: Peter Jason, Stuart Pankin, Keith David, Ella Joyce, Ed Asner, Johnny Gill and Tiny Lister. Thank you all for allowing us to take our film to the next level and show people we really know what we're doing.

For many of us this is the largest project we've taken on and completed to date and so it's a huge achievement all around. We were able to celebrate with a champagne toast at the end of our biggest day surrounded by friends, family and colleagues in a beautiful space in San Pedro, CA.

Our post team is already underway cutting, recording, mixing and scoring. It won't be long until we can share "Hopelessly In June" with all of you!

What I ask is that you tell your friends and family about this film. "Like" it on Facebook and follow in Twitter. This way you'll be in the loop when we announce when and where you can see the film!

Thank you again to all who have supported us along the way.

Producer, "Hopelessly In June"
