Old Dogs & New Tricks' Final Season
Let sleeping dogs lay?
Alas, our last celebratory special, just six months old, already feels ancient. We've gone from giddy-over-gay-marriage to traumatized-by-Trump. And suddenly, life for LGBTQ of any age is now filled with uncertainity (though things could become worse at any moment).
Many viewers have told us that we NEED to come back, to give people a little humor, to continue to represent an out-loud and proud LGBT, and to comment on the madness happening in the USA right now.
So we're raising funds for a five-episode finale seaon!
There ARE more stories to tell. Especially now! As we wrap up the series with more outrageous yet touching stories you've come to expect, you'll also see how the guys are reacting to and fighting back against the shift in our nation.
You've been there for us since the beginning. Now, won't you please help us end our show with the final five-episode season our show deserves? Your donation will help us maintain the style & production values you've come to love in ODNT -- and give our viewers a series finale worthy of all that's come before!
Why so much $$$?
When we began the show, Arvin & Leon wanted it to be the best-looking series on the web. And we've succeeded.
It was easy at first! In 2011, the economy was in a slump, and production in Los Angeles had slowed to a crawl. Many successful film professionals were availlable, and looking to work for lowered rates. Five years later, the economy has recovered, film production in LA is at an all-time high. Our crew can easily find jobs that pay ten times what we can offer.
And like most successful shows, each successive season becomes more expensive, because you need to give your crew an incentive (a bit more money) to return year after year--and to turn down much-better paying jobs to do so!
How much money? How many episodes?
We can't possibly hope to raise the $65,000 needed for a full 10-episode season. But we DO hope to raise $25,000 (or more) in order to produce FIVE 15 min. episodes that will wrap all the storylines up and end the series in the style it deserves.
But to shoot the last episodes, we still need your help!
The scripts are written. The cast & crew is ready. New and returning guest stars as lining up (to be announced soon!)
Now all we need is YOU!
All donors will receive a 'special thanks' in the end credits of each episode. Donors who give $100 or more receive a Season 4 DVD autographed by the cast. Other perks include invitations to appear as extras, invitations to the final cast party, and more! (And no worries, everyone who donated prevously for "Where Were You When the Rights Went On?" will receive their perks when Season 4 wraps!)
