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!
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.

The People Behind Immi the Vegan
Hi Everyone. A little about myself? I was born in the 80s, grew up on the Otago Harbour, but now live off K Rd in Central Auckland. I'm a musician and a writer, and now - strangely - an actor! I became vegetarian at the age of 10, and have been vegan now for 14 years. I'm a mum. I work at Angel Food as Office and Operations Manager. That pretty much sums me up!
Filming is underway!
