So, it is that time of year… the time of the year when various film festivals and online awards competitions start gearing up. We are submitting left and right (IAWTV, Streamys, and more…) and for some of them, we need a little support.
We would be very appreciative if you would take a few moments and use the fancy widget below to nominate our show for a STREAMY. Either for #BestComedySeries or #BestEnsemble… We submitted in a variety of categories (scroll down if you want to see all that we submitted to), but these 2 main ones would rock our tiny action figure socks if we could nail one. To nominate us use your twitter account and the widget below :) THANKS in advance!!

We had an amazing evening last night putting together the cast/director commentary for the DVD for Seasons 1-3. Travis Willingham (Hero Man), Bryan Enk (Samurai Snake), Yuri Lowenthal (Bug Boy) and Tara Platt (Hero Lass) watched thru and chatted/laughed as we revisited Season 1, then director Steven Calcote joined in the merriment for Seasons 2 and 3 while our amazing audio engineer and all around sound guru Juan Bagnell rocked the audio by setting up multiple mics to record the commentary for each season.
Plus we did our first costume fitting for the new costumes for Season 4 with our amazing costumer Holly Conrad. It was SUPER DUPER exciting to try on the new duds and chat about Season 4 shoot plans.
Stay tuned for fun updates on both the DVD (a perk for our recent IndieGoGo campaign - plus it will be available for purchase on the website) and more about our pre-production on Season 4!
First of all, love the show. Secondly, I would very much like to know where the money goes when I buy a Shelf Life related object... I want to make sure you guys are getting it, and not some person who's just selling your stuff for personal gain. Thanks! :3
Thanks so much! We are glad you like the show and want to support us. At this point we only have stuff available on Zazzle.com (where we get a small percentage) but that is the only “Shelf Life” swag that we know of out there - soon we will have a storefront on our website with DVD’s (and possibly other goodies) but that will be thru us :)! Where did you find stuff available? Best, Team Shelf Life
Thank you all for your extremely generous donations, for your help sharing, and for your general enjoyment, comments, and interest in our twisted little show. It is especially inspiring to see people step up and pay for something they like in a world where torrenting is easy and YouTube is free. Talk is cheap. Thanks for your respect.
As a special thank you from us to you, here is a group shot from behind-the-scenes on the Aaron Douglas episode with the cast and many members of the crew (including, clockwise from L) Juan Carlos Bagnell - sound, Steven Calcote - director, Mark Legaspi - cinematographer, Lillian Diaz-Przybyl - script supervisor, and super rockin’ support team-cheerleader Jenn!)
And the same group goofing off as we do MOST of the time on set! :) We promise we’ll be really serious about goofing off from here on out!
Also, huge thanks to all who played the Shelf Life IndieGoGo GAME… we loved all the guesses and participation! Our winner is Natalie F. who guessed $34,600 which was just $21 over the final amount! Way to go! We will ship your Shelf-y Swag out ASAP!
Much appreciation, gratitude, thanks and serious Shelf Love to each and every viewer, tweeter, re-tweeter, facebooker, donator (yeah, we know it is donors, but donators sounds more “sci-fi”) (actually, “donerator” sounds even better), supporter, and sideline cheerleader. We really do appreciate each and every one of you and your contributions to our show!
Holy Wow! We’re almost at the end! The countdown is now in a matter of hours rather than days. Thank you all for your continued support, for sharing, for donating, even for telling your frenemies, and for generally being supportive of our efforts and the show!
Plus we are having a fun GAME to guess what our total amount raised will be, so make sure to play - guesses are due in today by 5p PST :)
Here is Tara showing off her Light Socket. It is BIG. And you know what goes into a big light socket? A BIG PLUG! That’s what she said!
What else did she say?
WE ARE SO very excited about reaching our IndieGoGo GOAL and thrilled that we have surpassed the $30K and continue to climb that we want to do something fun for you all…. So we have a FUN GAME just for YOU!! Everyone can play even if you haven’t donated…
Send in (via email email@example.com or tweet to @shelflifeseries) your estimate of our final amount when the campaign closes THIS Friday night by Thursday at 5p PST and the CLOSEST* estimate for the final amount raised will get a care package of FUN Shelf Life swag…. I smell a t-shirt, and a pen and a button burning a hole in our grubby paws with your name on it!!
We even have a sample tweet for you to use for gameplay:
My guess for @shelflifeseries indiegogo.com/shelflife campaign final amount raised is $XXXXX how high do you think they will go? #ShelfLifeGame
*The closest estimate can be either above or below and will be pulled from all guesses made by Thursday August 16 at 5p PST, and then mailed out after the campaign closes
** If there are two tied estimates, one will get a t-shirt, pen, and button, and the other will get a mouse-pad, pen and button, so everyone can be happy!!
*** If there is more than a two-way tie, we will place all the possible names in a hat and draw a winner, so it is all fair and fun!
