Promo Bit: Department of Time Travel (A Kickstarter Project)

Leave a comment

The fine folks behind Department of Time Travel asked if I could spread the word about their fundraising attempts. They want to product a 50-minute film and need to raise $15,000 to do it.

Here’s the description:

Time travel has been theorized by authors and scientists since before time travel was even possible. Now, with the emerging business of chronosportation, the cosmos are all aflutter with chrononauts. Many of these travelers are simply peaceful tourists but there are others who intend to use the delinearization of time as a method for devious purposes.

Cue the DOTT : the American Department Of Time Travel with operations and offices all across the cosmos and chronos. One of the offices is right here in your time and they’re looking to hire a new agent for operations!

Characterized as The Office meets Dr. Who meet The X-Files, DOTT promises to be a new and exciting addition to the science fiction genre. But, DOTT is not JUST another science fiction show. It promises to get back to the majesty of shows like Star Trek, that not only entertained but highlighted and addressed many of the social and political issues of it’s day. A trait lost with many modern scifi series and films that attempt to wow their audiences with special effects and neat gadgets, but sadly fall short of a good story.

With your donation, a fifty minute long episode of DOTT will be shot. Donations will pay for Actors, Crew, Props and Rentals.

DOTT will not only entertain, but it will make a difference. How will your donation make a difference?

Sounds cool, doesn’t it?

If you’d like to support them with a donation, see their Kickstarter page. There are fifteen days left as of this post!

P.S.: There are all kinds of cool incentives, by the way. If I had $10 I’d swing for one of those DOTT badges…

P.S.S.: Here’s a video thing related to DOTT (after the fold):
