Job Hunters Season 2 Kickstarter

Hey everyone!

So there's this great web series called Job Hunters. It takes place in a dystopian future where graduate have to go into an arena to fight and kill in order to get jobs. It also serves as a form of population control. The show is very funny. Season 1 aired on youtube about a year ago. There are 6 episodes of about 10 minutes each, so it only takes about an hour to watch. Here, I'll put in the first episode for you.

So, as you can see, it's really good. And they did the whole thing on a budget of $14,000, donated through a kickstarter campaign. The main reason they could do it so cheaply? Lot's of people donated their time and resources. So a lot of people worked for no money, and the creators feel bad about that.

So, in order to make a season 2, they've created another kickstarter asking for $50,000 this time. They have a chart showing where the money will be going, but a plurality of it will be going to paying the crew.

Right now they have about $17,200 pledged and 9 days to go. If they don't get the rest of their funding, no one pays anything, and the show goes unmade.

If you like what you see, please consider giving even a small amount to help get season 2 made. I chipped in $21 but there are rewards for amounts as low as $3 (though if you want to be the first person to pledge/donate $5,000 that's your business).

Oh and if anyone was wondering, I'm not affiliated with Job Hunters in any way. I'm just a fan, trying to get the word out, so this great series can continue. And so that I can found out the result of that cliffhanger. Because seriously, the way the final episode ended is not okay. I need to know what happens.
