Help Us Maintain Our Own Production Space!

Greetings, I am Mr. Lobo. I'm a producer, artist, writer, presenter and creator of the TV series Cinema Insomnia which is celebrating 20 years or so. It's a showcase of the unusual side of film with feature films, interviews, shorts, trailers, clips, comedy sketches hosted by me. It has also been the showcase of many many talented people in front of and behind the scenes. The focus has always been on imagination and creativity. When broadcast support diminished and channels that broadcast us were swallowed up by larger fish. We founded our own streaming network OSI 74. The OSI stands for Outer Space International and it is a vast umbrella designed to collect creative, fun, and underground content made by producers around the globe. Since the pandemic it has been difficult to create Cinema Insomnia and other in-house shows for our network. In the past we were shooting bits in garages and living rooms and stitching content together. We were feeling growing pains and thanks to you we finally have our own space to make our brand of magic happen. You have donated over 20,000 to support our first year. We have learned much and have a new budget of $37,000 for 2023 that we added to last year's goal to include expenses incurred and current needs. This money will go towards rent, utilities, and hopefully renovations--like building a cyclorama chroma key backdrop and construction to better allow us to control light and sound in the space.

We have now been making Cinema Insomnia shows and other content for the channel. Live Streaming twice a week on Cinema Insomnia Twitch and serving a 24/4 stream for our OSI74tv channel.

A lot of fans have found us during the pandemic and have got a lot out of what we provide and the community of fans. Our dedicated studio space allows us to be more and more prolific in creating programming. It also allows us to provide support for film festivals, creators, performers, and independent filmmakers.

Phase 1 was to rent a large open space with high ceilings and adequate power and high speed-internet. WE DID THIS!

Phase 2 is to maintain and improve the space and efficiency of our operation, hopefully covering all our production expenses.

Phase 3 is to build our own space on our own land that would be a permanent production studio.

We are planning to have tours, events, shout outs, and film/TV credits to those who can assist us in our endeavors in this studio space. Thank you as always for your loyal support! It means everything to us!
