What if …
instead of the images we are bombarded with through our media, the stories we sensationalized were of people taking on some of our communities’ greatest challenges? What if the people we celebrated were ones living their lives in ways that positively impacted our communities and made our world a better place to live?
TWELVE is a docuseries that asks the questions:
1) “What could you create in the world over the next 12 months if you were actively living as your best, most authentic self?”
2) “What would it look like if you created it in a way that positively impacted your community and the world?”
3) "How can we help make it so?"
TWELVE: A Docuseries about SupraBeings™:
TWELVE follows 12 SupraBeings from Seattle for a year as they level up their lives and take on ambitious projects that create tangible benefit in their communities.
Suprabeing? What’s suprabeing?
Suprabeing is the act of spending each moment consciously being one’s best self, and willfully transcending the intrinsic and extrinsic limits of life. It is living your best life for the benefit of your community.
What’s a SupraBeing™?
A SupraBeing is someone on the journey of being the best version of themselves while focusing on love, community benefit, social justice, and sustainability.
Our aim is to help facilitate major projects that create real life benefit to the world. We want to inspire our viewers to engage in philanthropy and community development and to invest in themselves and their community.
We want to provide accessible examples to mimic and emulate from a diverse set of exceptional community members who demonstrate what suprabeing is and what it takes. We want to leverage the power of community to provide philanthropic funds to capitalize our viewer’s own community development and philanthropic projects.
Don’t just pay attention, invest attention and participate
Viewers can join the TWELVE Community Viewer Alliance (CVA) and collaborate with the 12 SupraBeings™ as they take on their 12-month projects. Members of the CVA get special access to member-only inspirational vlogs from each of the TWELVE, invitations to events and filming opportunities, discounts, and access to the Community Investment & Philanthropy Fund to help capitalize their own community-benefiting projects.
We want our community and its influencers to look good and we’ve brought together a team equipped to make that happen. Our production partners have worked with A-list artists, entertainers, and world-class athletes; multi-national organizations, sustainable businesses, and network and digital television companies. This investment of talent allows us to scale quickly and effectively as our community grows.

Use of Funds: Production Costs
We are creating a crowdfunding video that will be a sizzle and tease for upcoming episodes. Our budget for the crowdfunding video is roughly $1000/minute.
A lion's share of the initial budget is going to equipment rentals that will assist us in creating production worthy of our community champions.
2D/3D illustrations and graphics, production crew, editing and post production, and administrative fees round out our use of funds.
What You Support Means:
Your support means that we can immediately begin to move forward with filming and production of the proof of concept video that will put our city, our community and our philanthropic spirit on display.
Your support also means you're intrigued, and maybe that you are inspired and hoping for that to increase. We thank you so much for your consideration and we are looking forward to celebrating the real benefit our community will create together.
