What an incredible honour it is to have the support and generosity we've received so far! By reaching our target after just 10 days, we will now have access to some of the vital components needed for production. 

As Boosted has a set duration, our campaign will still be open to donations for another 10 days, with any extra support only adding to the capabilities of our team and the success of our work,
including:
  • An assistant director to be with us for the shoot 
  • Hiring of a van to contain and transport all our equipment 
  • Payment for the homegrown musicians whose music we will be using
  • An extra shoot day (if we are super lucky)! 
If you are interested in helping create Auckward Love 2, or if you know someone who might, we would love your support by donating or sharing this campaign.

Thank you

from the 'Auckward Love' team!

Auckward Love is a web-series that takes a light and comedic look at something that all of us experience in our life-time - finding love. By focusing on the unique and awkward aspects of this world, our audience laughs away the truth that is so often present as we seek love.

We set out to make a series that candidly and enjoyably shared a slice of life as a mainstream New Zealand female and in doing so we are now an award winning team being celebrated as a fresh and much-awaited voice in film and TV.

As you saw in our video, Auckward Love Season 1 is doing great things in the public eye and in order to continue to tell this unique and exciting story in a second series, we would love your support!

The Funds
We have already raised some of our much needed funding from generous support from individuals and organisations but we still need to secure vital crew and equipment to increase our production capabilites to tell the best story possible. This includes:

- Camera and lighting equipment rental (Camera, lens adaptor, lighting & stands, dolly, drone) - $5,450.00

- Professional sound mixer/recordist - $3,750.00

- Payment for additional support crew (boom operator, lighting assistant) - $4,050.00

- Print and online publicity - $990.00

- Locations Koha/offering - $750.00

- Petrol vouchers for locations travel - $460.00

Our Core Cast

Plus many very exciting guest stars including Alex Tarrant, Amanda Billing, Darlene Mohekey, John Leigh, Ben Barrington, Will Hall, Neill Rea, Sylvia Rands, Jacqueline Nairn and more to come!

The Future
With Auckward Love very quickly making its mark in New Zealand and abroad, we have a desire to continue to create great New Zealand content that speaks honestly about our generation and the ones to come. Auckward Love is already and will continue to be an incredible stepping stone for us in the industry, as we propel ourselves forward with greater work, starting with season 2 - launching in September 2016!

Thank you in advance for your generosity - you are helping to create something very special!
