A Web-a-thon to fund a web series? http://bit.ly/az2jXF Anyone But Me plans to give it a go.
While the first two seasons ofÂ Anyone But Me were funded by a private investor, show creator Susan Miller said via phone today that said investor contributed to the showâ€™s production only to give it momentum in its initial launch. â€œWe now feel obligated to pursue [a third season] without tapping that resource,â€ she said. â€œPeople donâ€™t have unlimited funds, after all.â€
Knowing this going into season two,Â at a Strike TV panel last December Miller said that she and co-creator Tina Cesa Ward were considering a subscription model for the third season. But theyâ€™ve since changed their minds, and instead, Miller and Ward are initiating a donations program, but with a twist: On July 27-29, theyâ€™ll run a video â€œweb-a-thonâ€ to engage with fans and solicit their contributions.
Why not give it a try, I say. It might work!
