A Web Series Experiment! Your Click = Cash Money!

Last year, I shot a pilot episode and trailer for a quirky little travel web series with my fellow comedian and adventurer, Robert Boesel: #LAblocks. We wanted to explore LA like no one else had — BLOCK BY BLOCK.  We wanted to pinpoint the most interesting INTERSECTIONS of Los Angeles, in order to help visitors and locals alike get the most bang for their buck and SATISFACTION for their STEP.

How awesome would it be to know EXACTLY where to go to spend a whole afternoon or day in one awesome neighborhood of LA, no driving around necessary? But as LA enthusiasts, even WE were shocked at the incredible amount of art, architecture, events, history, people, stores and stories we discovered at each block.

We shot a trailer and a pilot episode and did our best to find a brand to sponsor our incredibly well shot, reasonably priced show. And… no takers. We tried for almost a year! But we LOVE this show and we care about it SO MUCH that we weren’t gonna see it die.

We decided to RELEASE the Trailer yesterday and ask friends and fans to SPREAD THE WORD and help us build our subscriber base to show the world — and brands with the same adventurous, travel/culture conscious spirit as we have — that the world wants this show!

When we get to 1,000 subscribers, we’ll release our FIRST EPISODE: 5th & Spring. Hopefully, at 1,000 subscribers, brands will already start to take notice. If we can sign on a backer for our first episode, we will! Otherwise, we’ll release it and keep building our audience and investing our OWN money — if this is the show you want to see!  Help us with this experiment! Let’s see how many subscribers and views it takes for a like-minded brand to help us make this show a reality.

We’re in a world where the AUDIENCE gets to dictate to the ADVERTISERS what they want. If homegrown, exceptionally executed, funny, truthful, educational, fast and short travel info is what you want, let us know with your click! And help us spread the word.

The #1 Web Series You Should Watch This Holiday Season

“Big Country Blues” Trailer from Brian A Ross on Vimeo.

Give yourself the gift this Thanksgiving weekend of doing something you have NEVER done before:  Watch a 10 minute episode of a dramatic web series.  I know, I know, the cat littler needs changing and there’s a funny SNL sketch on Hulu you want to show to your uncle Mick from Chicago who sells chairs out of a back of a van, but seriously. Grab someone you love and physically force them to watch one episode of the award winning web series Big Country Blues with you.  I promise you’ll be begging everyone else around to open their laptops and catch up with you, so you can all watch episode two together.
