Hey everybody! This is a trailer for our web series concept “Get Rich Quick,” which we’re submitting to Canada’s Independent Production Fund (http://ipf.ca) for potential financing. That’s right – Canada has a fund for web series. Add it to the list of uniquely-Canadian delights with bagged milk and canned baguettes.
Part of their assessment is based on the traffic and audience feedback for this video, so definitely link it to a friend and let us know what you think in the comments! Let’s make fun happen.
The plot: Two unemployed burnouts who worship George Clooney become fed up with their pathetic lives, and vow to make a million dollars to emulate their hero. In every episode they concoct a get-rich-quick scheme, ranging from the dangerous to the devious to to the dumb.
