First off, the show will be shooting in Los Angeles and I am going to
make an exerted effort to use both new and established talent, and try to do so on both sides of the
camera as I can. The one great thing is I
already have my First Commitment to Air the Pilot and the Series, "The
Pin Up", on MaddyGTV. And I have also found our
shows first sponsor who happens to be one of the Biggest Camera Store's
in Los Angeles and will be
supplying a large portion id not all of the equipment needed to
shoot the pilot and the on going series. We will be shooting the show in 4K! That's a lot of Pixils!
Funding is my main problem getting this off the ground... I
am looking for 45K, the basic funding I need to shoot the Pilot
right and of course pay for the cast, crew and studio. VC funding could
work, but would love
to partner with the right Exec. Producer who can share my vision for
this unique project. **To be honest, I need
a producer that is not afraid to actually have to do some work,
which means hustle this project and
help make this happen, and of course, someone who can also fund the
Pilot.** Persoanlly, and I'm sorry to say, most "established"
producers seemed to want to start with a finished and already polished
project when what I need is their help to polish it! I
can't hand you a silver platter. But with a little effort from
both of us, you can help me make a platter
that is not just silver, but one of gold!
The Pilot is budgeted at a very modest 45K. If you know the reality market, 45K is a fraction of what
most of today's decent reality shows cost to produce per episode. Despite the fact that most decent reality shows seem to start at 150K to do an episode, I really don't need that kind of budget to make this happen and do it right.
That all said, it would be great if I knew I had a
padding availible beyond the 45K... Maybe 50K would let me breath
eaiser... ...but I still think I can do this pilot bare bones at
45K. And this low budget is really because I did plan to do quite
a bit of the post myself, much of it at my own time and expense. (I
worked for Roger Corman for many years in the 80's and some of his bare
bones budgeting savvy rubbed off.)
For the first season at least, I actually expect the per episode costs
to be 25K or under because we will shoot alike segments of the shows in
groups, and back to back. That will also give me a little more time to
create the actual art work for each show. I have no doubt, the shows
budget will grow in short time as the show gains more sponsors,
stations and networks and popularity.
commitment I got to air the pilot was based on the concept alone and
the quality of my art work. Everybody loves this concept and as a
past Playboy Photographer and a long time Pin Up Artist, and now a
Multimedia 3D Artist, I am in a unique position to make this show happen,
and see if we can take the Art of Erotic Pin Up to another level.
The Prints I offer are all Printed on the highest Archival Quality Canvas. These are Large Giclee Prints... EROTIC, POP & ABSTRACT... All Images are Printed to Order, inspected for quality, then Signed by the Artist, David Goldner.
Yes, there will be playboy style nudity involved which is part of the process and will obviously be one of the shows hallmarks. All very tasteful.
hoping to take Pin Up Art to the next level and the next generation,
and we will be featuring other established and up and coming Pin Up
Artist in every show. The
hope is to open people's eyes to this Well Established Art Form that
doesn't have to be hidden behind closed doors. Again, this show
already has one commitment to air the pilot and series,
so the pilot already has a window to the world, hopefully to help it
grow. But I need a good Production Partner, an Executive Producer
that can get this show out there and help me make this the show
everything I know it can be!
