Today, we’re proud to officially launch the first week of The TV Reset Project. The TV Reset Project includes the launch of (1) our global talent contest for five, talented, up-and-coming independent filmmakers, (2) the start of our fundraising campaign at IndieGoGo to be able to provide additional budget support to our filmmakers, and (3) the season premier of our second digital series, crime-thriller “Dead Man’s Trigger,” directed by Juan Reinoso and starring Hassan Johnson (HBO’s The Wire, ER, Belly).
The overall goal of The TV Reset Project is to build a community-driven entertainment network that provides development, marketing and distribution support to original work by independent filmmakers, film students, screenwriters and actors/actresses. By enabling independent creative artists make financially sustainable internet TV, we can introduce democracy, meritocracy, diversity and originality to digital entertainment like never before.
Today, our IndieGoGo campaign went live. Tomorrow night (Wednesday), Episode 1 of “Dead Man’s Trigger” premiers on our YouTube channel, so make sure you’re following ZoomTilt on Twitter (@ZoomTilt) and Facebook (Facebook.com/ZoomTilt) so you don’t miss the release announcement. In addition, in celebration of The TV Reset Project, the ZoomTilt crew is going to get pretty creative with their own video-making, so stay tuned for some original skits and sketches debuting throughout TV Reset Month. We hope you’ll continue to tune in.
