Pioneer One is the latest project from Josh Bernhard and Bracey Smith whose previous indie feature The Lionshare, became VODOâ€™s biggest success to date with over 450,000 downloads since its release. The success of the project inspired the writer/director duo to develop this quality drama in collaboration with VODO and its distribution partners. With a successful distribution of the pilot theyâ€™re hunting for the donors and sponsors that will make the continuation of the show possible.
The showâ€™s pilot was shot for just $6000, raised through the micro-funding platform Kickstarter. â€œThis production was possible due in no small part to the willingness of talented, professional people working for free,â€ explains Bernhard. â€œFrom actors to composers, they did this because they believed in the project and wanted to see it happen.The production was a journey in and of itself. Check out the video blogs that were posted to the web that tell the story from script to finished episodeâ€: vimeo.com/channels/pioneerone.
This release takes place with the kind support of distribution partners BitTorrent and Limewire, and of course all our other partners in the Distribution Coalition.
