Back To Goode is a five part web series narrative drama set in the fictitious town of Goode (Daylesford). It follows the adventures of two gay girl couples, academics Ellie and Vanessa and barbers Alex and Zoey who move to the country from Melbourne to get their lives and loves back on track.
We are raising funds to finance the production of the trailer for the web series as well as the five episodes which will be launched on YouTube and other overseas platforms.
The production currently has 30 cast and crew, all talented creatives from the Melbourne area, many with credits in feature length films and short films and other web series productions. The project also has secured two Wentworth actors, Katherine Grinlaw (pictured) and Leanne Campbell.
Our production team consists of award winning individuals and graduates of highly regarded film and television schools and Melbourne universities.
Our project is important as it brings to the screen diversity and inclusion. As well as appealing to a broad demographic, our web series shows young people especially that there are people just like them in the world, worthy of representation on the screen, whose stories are important and deserve to be told.
We need your support to help bring this project to life. As we have been developing our project and speaking to many people, we have been overwhelmed by support and encouragement. We now need this in financial form.
We are an enthusiastic team, working together on this creative dream. We are getting out into the community, meeting and greeting everyone in the local communities that support us and supporting them in turn.
We are attending major LGBT events and actively meeting our future audience and building an amazing following as well as listening to them and the stories they tell.
All donations will be used in the production of our web series.
We estimate fully paid cast and crew would amount to $5000 per episode. We also required video editing, marketing and promotion and equipment hire.
The end results will be a quality production of a home grown LGBT drama in Victoria that showcases our community and the beautiful landscapes in which we live, one which also supports emerging talent and showcases Victoria as a diverse, vibrant and creative destination!
