About

Immi The Vegan

Project 2017-10-28 21:16:31 +1300

 

Immi the Vegan is a NZ comedy web series about an everyday vegan gal living in the heart of Auckland City. We have shot the pilot, but now we need to raise money to shoot the rest of Season 1! 

 

Watch the pilot here!

 

The creator and star of the show, Immi Paterson-Harkness, came up with this concept after being sick of seeing vegans typecast as crazy people in nearly all comedies. She wanted to create a show that is funny for vegans (and relatable!), which is also enjoyable for people all the way along the dietary spectrum - thereby making veganism more "normal".

 

Making professional film is incredibly expensive. When you need to factor in payments to all the crew (director, director of photography, soundie, make-up, editor...), plus feed them all a hearty vegan meal, it adds up quickly. $6000 will enable us to shoot five more episodes, giving us a full season of SIX new, exciting, vegan comedic episodes. If we earn more than this then we can make even more!

 

On set

 

We are happily overwhelmed by the AMAZING donations we have received from all our sponsors, which are the rewards for this campaign. Don't feel you need to limit yourself to just one!

Pledge amounts include freight and PledgeMe fees. ALL REWARDS ARE VEGAN-FRIENDLY.

FINALLY - the TRAILER is here!

27/05/2020 at 9:30 PM

Kia ora, pledgers!

It's been nearly two years since I last sent an update, and that's because it's taken us two years to finish the Immi the Vegan web series. It's been hard work, but we've finally finished, and the whacky, surreal, musical comedy series will be launching soon!

Here's our trailer, giving you a taste of what's to come. We hope you like it! :D

To keep informed, follow the facebook page at www.facebook.com/immithevegan, and subscribe to the YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCEvvr1bUtLO_czQ2z_w5ZZw

Thank you again for all your support back in November 2017!
