I want to make sure to answer this question… BESIDES crowdfunding we brought on some sponsors this season. Though we aimed for 25K we only funded 15 (DAMN ELECTION DEPRESSION), so we needed to find at least another 10-15k to shore up our post-production-promotion.
We decided to take that 15K and produce 3 episodes of the show - then have something to show new sponsors. it worked and we found 2 -one real estate company that is owned by a huge fan of the show, and one weed company who we actually found right before shooting (shout out to TIM LEVINE!!) - we wrote them into an episode and the gave us $ and FREE WEED!!
