You may know about the long-running Internet TV series on which I work called The Media Show. For those unfamiliar, it’s an award-winning educational show focusing on media literacy starring snarky puppets who deconstruct, learn about, and play with the media landscape that surrounds us all. We tackle the various ways ads really affect us, the shadier uses some companies have for their own customers, how various aspects of the Internet can work for or against us, and much more. Here’s our trailer!
What you may not know is after a long and successful run at a now-dismantled production facility, we are producing the show entirely independently these days. We’ve got some great scripts in store for our next few episodes, more ambitious than any we’ve done before, and we need your help to make them happen!
We’ve launched a donation-crowdsourcing campaign on Kickstarter to collect donations to fund our access to production equipment and studio space. Backers of our project can receive exclusive goodies from the show as thank-you gifts! Here’s a behind-the-scenes video showing some of the reasons we really need your help with this.
Whether you can donate financially or not, we could also really use your help spreading the word about our show and our Kickstarter campaign. Please, spread the word and share this post with anyone you think might be interested!
