What we are doing
“Nerd Out” is our first endeavor into the web series realm under the Hashtag Nerd Brand. The series will consist of six special-interest, micro-documentary episodes telling the story of individuals with nontraditional obsessions. Topics will include comic and toy collectors, LARPers, tabletop gamers and many others.
Help us with our vision
We have already begun filming, but we need your help to finish this series.
Hashtag Nerd and all of the projects surrounding it, including “Nerd Out,” are passion projects for our us. We dedicate our time and money to help make our visions possible, but sometimes those visions are bigger than our personal budgets allow. That is why we are asking you – our friends, family and fans – for help.
Filming a series like “Nerd Out” is one of the largest endeavors we’ve undertaken thus far, and with our DIY spirit – and your help – we feel confident that we can succeed. Any amount of funding we reserve will help us achieve our goals, with contributions going toward necessities like gear rental, filming permits, transportation of crew and talent, and other expenses. If we raise more than our goal of $500, the excess will be rolled into improving quality of the final outcome.
If we do not reach our goal, we will use any amount we do obtain to create the best experience we can offer.
How it will go down
Hashtag Nerd will film for three to four months throughout the summer of 2013, then take up to a month for editing. We aim to release the first episode on Youtube in the fall, with subsequent episodes released every week. These will be accompanied by as much relevant bonus content as we can provide.
Other ways you can help

We hope to make season one of “Nerd Out” so successful that we can continue to produce a second season in 2014. Thank you for any contribution you can make!
