CALCULATED EGOS - The Web Series

A crime drama web series about a power struggle between two families in Brooklyn, NY.

We are proud to bring to life this gripping new project from award-winning film director, Andrè Joseph  of AJ Epyx Productions , writer/producers Christopher Stewart  and Minoj of Source Life Entertainment , and associate producer Sonia Ruiz. Every contribution will matter in bringing our vision to life.

For the full background of the project, please check out our official website .

 
THE PROJECT

CALCULATED EGOS  follows a struggling Brooklyn warehouse worker named Melvin Mac, Jr. who is offered an important job opportunity by reputed Italian mob boss, Don Cesare Pachino. The wealth that the job provides for Mac’s wife and son also makes him a target for enemies working in the shadows. This results in a series of tragic events that will change both the Mac and Pachino family lives forever. The web series will be a 10-episode arc spanning three generations from the mid-1970s to the present day. 

What makes this project stand out is the diversity of the tale. Two families who could not be any different from one another both racially and economically. But they share equal amounts of inner drama as well as a desire for power no matter who they have to hurt in the process. Every move that each character makes to achieve success is a calculated one.

 
THE LOGISTICS

To get our pilot episode produced, we are looking to raise $30,000 to go towards production on locations in the five boroughs of New York City in the summer of 2021. Funds will contribute to all production costs, including but not limited to travel costs, locations and equipment rentals, meeting COVID-19 safety protocols, and postproduction.
