So yes, you read that right... Amber Benson of 'Buffy' fame will be playing a vampire in our show instead of slaying vampires. :)
If you didn't know, Amber has officially attached herself to play Amelie (the founder of Morganville) in our adaptation of The Morganville Vampires book series into a web series called Morganville: The Series.
We're very excited to have her involved. But of course, the Kickstarter campaign has to fund first. Today we crossed the $25k mark towards our goal of $75k... so we're 1/3rd of the way!
Here is some nice coverage of Amber's involvement in the campaign and hopefully the series.
And here is the link to our actual Kicstarter campaign page.
We've got some really interesting rewards too. For only $40 you can get a digital copy of the script, exclusive postcard artwork and an HD download of Season 1. Or for those with deeper pockets, the $500 level you get all of the above plus a complete set of all 15 Morganville books autographed by Rachel Caine the author, along with a DVD, a poster and I forget what else. It's a lot.
So please help if you can! A tweet or FB post is almost as good as becoming a financial backer. Almost. :)
In all seriousness, Kickstarter is a great way to crowd-fund all kinds of projects.
I am fortunate to be working with the international best-selling author Rachel Caine in bringing her book series THE MORGANVILLE VAMPIRES to life as an online TV series.... and we could use your help.

Who Am I?
I also created the Streamy and Webby award-winning web series PINK, which to date has been viewed online around 10 MILLION times at places like YouTube, Hulu, Koldcast and TheWB.com. And speaking of TheWB.com, I also produced and directed an online thriller for them called EXPOSED. It was released summer 2010. And most recently I created a new online sci-fi series called CONTINUUM, which is part of the online indie TV network JTS.tv - Just The Story and NOW available via VOD through indie platform Distrify.
Oh, and I don't shoot weddings. Thanks for asking though.
