After the success of our first 3 seasons (and a solid crowdfunding campaign) we are returning with higher production value, bigger challenges, and a new dynamic cast.

We have many crew roles available, your name will appear in the credits and you may use the content for your portfolio. This is an unpaid, non-commercial, community focused passion project.

We are a team of independent & student filmmakers, last season had a crew of 25 for a 21 hour shoot. Season 4 will be shot over 40 hours with a rotation of crew members.

Episodes will be published to Facebook and Youtube where you can currently find S1-S3.

Production scheduled for one weekend in Jan or Feb, exact dates TBA soon.

The event is game first, tv show second. we originally said if we managed to film it, that’s a bonus. we challenge ourselves to do it well but at the end of the day it is all for fun.

no one on the team makes money from it. donations help us cater for cast and crew and to build challenges. we’re not affiliated with any business, promotion or advertising.
