All Bi Myself is a web series about Mia, a 22 year old female who comes out as bisexual to her family and church. With two great episodes already produced, All Bi Myself needs your help to fund the rest of the series.
Why do you think this campaign is important?
This campaign is important because it represents someone who we simply do not see in the media. We have found that bisexuality too often misses out – both in mainstream media and in the LGBT community. All Bi Myself aims to fill that gap – we want people to see themselves in a character like Mia (the star character in our web series).
Everyone involved in the campaign is doing this as a passion project. We’re not out to make money but we do need funding to pull it all off!
What motivated you to reach out to your crowd?
We were actually inspired by ‘PSUSY’ – a NZ web series that prides itself as showcasing “flawed and gross” women. It launched a PledgeMe campaign in 2017. We are big fans of the team behind PSUSY and were inspired to also use PledgeMe as an alternative to funding.
We love the idea of getting our whole fanbase involved. It is awesome to know that people who enjoyed episodes one and two want to get behind us as we make the rest of the episodes in season one. We also love that we can offer our crowd rewards for supporting us, rather than simply asking for money.
What do you have planned for the rest of the campaign – anything for us to look forward to?
Within our crowd is a fantastic posse of small businesses who have approached us to ask if they can donate in kind to our cause rather than giving us money. The great news is that it means we have some pretty cool rewards to pass onto our pledgers! So we definitely recommend keeping an eye on our PledgeMe page and our Facebook page as we have a few more surprise incentives to give away.
And since we are part of the film community, we are planning to thank our community for its support by releasing a ‘behind the scenes’ bloopers reel when we reach our goal. And we also have some pretty great rewards – the the opportunity to have your name on the credits of our episodes!
Finally, we will be hosting a bit of a countdown in the countdown to the close of our campaign. We would love our crowd from across New Zealand to join us by jumping onto the live stream on our Facebook page.
Anything you would like to shout out to your crowd?
We want to send our unwavering and undying love and appreciation to everyone who has already pledged. As for the people who are planning on pledging, we send you a huge pre-thank you!
It is great to know that art can be created in new and different ways. We are all so excited to reach our goal, but to do so we need your help.
