1 - Camera crew assaulted on halting site

2 - MC Daycent gets tanned up by Black Francis

3 - Many a stuttering eejit got the cure in Lourdes 

Social media sensation (and plasma-screen salesman) MC Daycent is ready for a TV series - but he needs your help to make it happen! 

Gary Lyons (aka Lyonsey) created his character MC Daycent two years ago, and from humble beginnings his self-filmed comedy sketches now have over 50 million views on social media!

Now Lyonsey has teamed up with writer/director Nicky Larkin & Binary Pictures to take it to the next level, and create a pure Daycent TV series!  

With three short comedy sketches to be released over the coming  weeks, allow us to introduce you to MC Daycent's new manager (and stylist!) Black Francis - played by Father Ted’s Kevin Sharkey. You'll also meet MC Daycent's long-suffering mother, Madame Lee (Claire O'Donovan) the famous former fortune-teller who wants to send her "stutterin' eejit" son to Lourdes for the cure!  You'll meet MC Daycent's yoke dropping/dealing gangster sister Shakira (Laura White), who's not too happy about the hapless documentary maker (Rory Lonergan) and his film crew, who've arrived on the site to make a documentary about the life of everyone's favourite poor stutterin' eejit - MC Daycent!!

However, in order to seek a commission for a Daycent TV series, we need to produce a pure Daycent half-hour pilot episode, and this is where we need your help.  We have the script, we have the actors, we have the production team... now all we need a is little bit of Johnny Cash to grease the wheels - and put the caravan in motion!
With the kind support of Offaly Arts, we were fortunate to be able to produce three comedy sketches as part of our crowd-fund appeal, and also to give you a little taste of what the pure Daycent TV series would be like!  We called in all the favours; we begged, we borrowed (status of the Virgin Mary) and we stole.. (we bribed the Gaurds to keep them quite)  And we shot these three sketches in one day in June!  However, shooting a 30 minute broadcast-ready pilot episode for TV is a whole different bag of Yokes...

Making the half-hour Daycent pilot episode will involve a five day shoot, which means five days accommodation (and spuds) for our entire cast and crew.  It means five days of high-end broadcast standard equipment hire, lights, camera, sound.  It means locations, set construction, insurance, transport.  And we're not home yet; once the footage is in the can & edited, we need to ship it off for a colour-grade and sound master.  

All in, MC Daycent needs €30,000 to make this happen.  You can give us anything from €20 to 5k, to help us put MC Daycent on a plasma-screen TV near you!  But what will you get for your hard-earned Johnny Cash?

€20 - You will receive a 'pure Daycent' customised voicemail greeting recorded for you by by 'the best MC you ever did see' - MC Daycent himself!  Be the envy of your friends with a few bars spat in your ear by 'the lyrical G from Tipperary!'   You also get to be ahead of the posse with a digital copy of the pilot episode script BEFORE the episode is even filmed - so you'll know the craic before anybody else!!  Can't say fairer than that, boss!

€50 - You get a paper copy of the script, signed by all the cast!  You also get the 'pure Daycent' individually customised voicemail greeting with MC Dacent using your name, and telling your friends how best to reach you!!   You also get a digital copy of the script BEFORE the episode.  Pure Daycent Mush!!

€100 - For a hundred quid MC Daycent will write and record an individual personalised rap just for you, about you!! , a paper copy of the script signed by the cast, and a digital script BEFORE the shoot.  Then when it's all finished, you also get two free tickets to the premiere, where you will walk the red carpet and mingle with MC Daycent and all the stars!

€250 - Get your fortune told by Madame Lee!  For €250 famous former fortune-teller Madame Lee will record a personalised fortune-telling just for you, and send it to your smartphone!   You also get a cinema-sized official MC Daycent poster, signed by the cast!  You also get the digital script BEFORE the shoot!  And of course you then get to see the finished product, with two free tickets to the premiere; where you will walk the red carpet and meet MC Daycent and all the stars!

€500 -  Have someone beaten up by Shakira on camera!   Organise a punishment beating for one of your friends or family, or if you're feeling brave enough, have your own shite beaten out of you!  The documentary lads will film you (or a friend of your chosing) get hammered by MC Daycent's gangster sister Shakira! Take your beating home and show your loved ones! And after you take your beating on the film set, you get to star as an extra in the pilot episode! And now that you're part of the cast, you get to come to the wrap party, with MC Daycent and all the cast and crew!  Plus, you get all the official MC Daycent merch' - the cinema-sized official MC Daycent poster, signed by all the cast, and a digital copy of the script BEFORE the pilot episode is filmed.  Then, you get to come to the premiere with all the cast and crew, and the !  Now that's pure Daycent!!

€1000 - Like the Pope selling indulgences into heaven, we're flogging entry into the film business!  For giving us such a large amount of help in making this happen (we'll ask no questions where it came from boss!) you will be credited as an Executive Producer (but not like that Weinstein lad; we'll have none of that on our site!).  And as Executive Producer, you get an exclusive Skype video call live from the set during filming, where the cast and crew will give you a live update on their progress!   As Executive Producer you also get to come to the wrap party on the last day of the shoot, and when you've finished partying with the cast and crew, we'll put you up in a fancy hotel for the night!  Can't say fairer than that, boss!  But  most importantly, your IMDb Executive Producer credit will show up in Google searches until the end of time!!  You also get all the other 'pure Daycent' merch' and the script BEFORE the episode is filmed.  Then, upon competition of the pilot episode post-production, as Executive Producer you get an exclusive preview of the episode BEFORE anybody else gets to see it!  And of course, you get to come to the premiere with the rest of the cast and crew!
