Two Brothers The Web Series

“Two Brothers is a drama series that follows Aiden and Aaron, a set of fraternal twins who move to Severn Bridge. We follow the very    real struggles of this small town’s community as each person fights to find self acceptance. Fitting in will be exceptionally hard for these two. Not only are they visible minorities, but one is also gay.”

My name is Andrew, and I am the writer, director, and producer of the series. I have been acting and modelling since I was nine years old.               In 2010 I decided to start my own Independent film company called M Productions. Since then I have finished three features films entitled "Consequences", "The One That Got Away", and "The One Night Stand".

During the quarantine I took the time to write the story of "Two Brothers". I was never good with words and expressing myself. When the Black Lives Matter movement happened I couldn't find the right way to express how I felt. So I started to write this script, and use this as a way to speak up !​It’s a story that I am very passionate about, and tackles issues that need to be talked about. Not many shows have black actors as leads.  They normally play the "best friends" or the side character. My goal with the series, is to show that you don’t have to be white to be a leading     man, women, or PERSON. Race is not the only issue we showcase in the show. It has a huge focus on what goes on in the LGBTQ community.




Our characters struggle with coming out, accepting who they are, and learning the discrimination that goes on within the community itself​This story is so impactful, and my goal it to help people who are going through the same struggles as the characters.Growing up black was hard enough, but being black AND gay was a true struggle. Hearing the words Chi Chi Man, and Botty Man (Jamaican gay slurrs) thrown around was not easy, and it kept me in the closet for longer than I would have liked. When I finally came out, my father disowned me. I haven’t spoken to or seen him in 6 years. I need everyone to hear this...ALL BLACK LIVES MATTER.​

I never saw anyone like me on tv growing up, and my plan is to change that. If you can’t donate, then please share this video, hopefully it will        reach out to someone like me. With everything that's going on in the world right now, it's important for a show like this to be seen. I'm positive  that everyone who tunes in will be able to relate to one or more characters that they see. The black queer community needs to be seen and heard,   and this is my way of doing it. I'm using the storylines within the show to make sure that we aren't forgotten, and that people know that      we're  here, we're queer, and we're not going ANYWHERE.

With such a diverse cast and relevant story lines, the viewers will be able to relate to at least one of the characters portrayed in the series. Our goal is to show how multicultural Canada is, and to share the talent of different ethnicities to viewers around the world. We want to go beyond stereotypes like the “black best friend” or that every leading man or woman has to be white. Race is not the only issue we showcase in the show, it also focuses on what goes on in the LGBTQ community. Our characters struggle with coming out, accepting who they are, and learning the   discrimination that goes on within the community itself

  OUR GOALS

 WHAT IF YOU DON'T REACH YOUR GOAL?

Although I like to think positive, this is a possibility. If we don't reach our goal, we will still make this show happen. One way or another these stories will be told. Don't think of it as donating, think of it as helping us create something amazing. By contributing, you are becoming part of the team. So welcome, and we hope you enjoy this crazy ride with us. 

 THE IMPACT

This story is so impactful, and my goal it to help people who are going through the same struggles as the characters.
Growing up black was hard enough, but being black AND gay was a true struggle. Hearing the words Chi Chi Man, and Botty Man (Jamaican gay slurrs) thrown around was not easy, and it kept me in the closet for longer than I would have liked. When I finally came out, my father disowned me. I haven’t spoken to or seen him in 6 years. I need everyone to hear this...ALL BLACK LIVES MATTER.

I never saw anyone like me on tv growing up, and my plan is to change that. I would like to share these stories with the world, hopefully it will reach out to someone like me. That’s worth more than money. I want them to know they’re not alone, and they will get through it!

So far we have gotten such positive feedback from people all across our social media. They are excited and hopeful that this story will come to life. Help us make a change!

 RISKS AND CHALLENGES

​I will be 100% honest. Our biggest challenge is funding. There's so many different costs that go into making a project this big. It sucks that a piece of paper is the only thing standing in the way of making this happen. We can't ask anyone to work for free, it's not fair to them. We will be working long days and our team should be compensated for the awesome work that they provide. 

Luckily enough, everyone volunteered their time for the first episode so we would have something to pitch to networks. But people have to eat , and have bills to pay. 

To overcome this challenge , we are asking for your help. I know times are tough right now with the pandemic, but every penny counts. Even if its just $1, because that's one dollar more than we had before :)

I want to start off by thanking everyone for supporting this amazing journey we have been on. To show our appreciation, we have moved our funding platform over to Kickstarter so we can offer amazing perks

 WHY CROWD FUNDING?

We had a SOLD OUT launch party fundraiser that was set to happen back in October 2020. Unfortunately due to the COVID restriction we had to cancel it and refund everyone their money. When we are able to hold the event again we will, but for now we have to resource to online funding.

This show is extremely important to me. Growing up I NEVER saw anyone like me on tv and it was hard to relate to the character that I would watch week after week. Whenever there was a black person in a show they played either the best friend, a token , or a side character that made appearances. Yes we had shows like "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Moesha, Sister Sister, Girlfriends, Family Matters. The Parkers , One on One e.t.c. This made me happy, to finally see black families being portrayed on TV. There was never a gay black man on tv so I could still never fully relate.

With this show I'm planning to change that. I want black queer males around the world to watch this show and see that it's okay to be black and gay. I want them to look at the character of Aaron and relate to him. I want them to finally see someone on their screen where they can say "I know what he's going through"

So please help us get this story out there by donating whatever you can to the project. If you're unable to donate, then please share this with as many people as you can.

 OTHER WAYS YOU CAN HELP

Times are tough, and if you can't donate there's lots of other ways to help. Help us spread the word about the project through your social media.
