Season One has been successfully recorded and is in post-production. We need an additional $15,000 in order to produce The Cleansed Season 2. To put that in perspective, that is less than one quarter of the budget for a single episode of Dancing With the Stars, or 1% of the budget of a typical episode of Survivor.
We’re being transparent about how money is used – check out our budget here.
You can help in a number of ways:
Donate any amount you want – it will be appreciated and make a tangible difference to the project! Every dollar you give will make a tangible difference to the project.
You’ll get marketing benefits such as use of business logo in marketing, credit, keyword-dense search link, etc.
Here’s roughly what you’ll be supporting and what you’ll get:
- Up to $100 – Sponsor a Meal - Your contribution will be used to defray minor production expenses – meals, script printing, batteries, recording accessories, etc. Everyone who donates anything (even $1!) will be on a special email list with exclusive first download access to new episodes, as well as listed on the “Contributors” section of this website.
- $100+ – Sponsor an Actor - You’ll pay for an actor’s salary for one episode… Woohoo! You’ll be on this website AND get audio credit at the end of each production
- $1,500+ – Sponsor an Episode - You’ll officially become an “Associate Producer” for the episode of your choice, since you’ll have made a major impact in making that episode happen. Your name of course will also be on this website and in ALL audio credits.
- $5,000+ – Sponsor a Season - You’ll be underwriting a significant portion of the costs of a season of production, and will be hugely thanked throughout the production.
