LOS ANGELES TEAM LAUNCHES INDIEGOGO TO FIND BEST FRIENDS – AGAIN!

The Documentary Diary of One Young Woman’s Friend Finding Journey

Los Angeles, CALIFORNIA – FEB 6, 2015 – Fundraising for Web Series ‘Wanted: Best Friend’ Part I successfully raised $9,343. 

“Your contributions helped us secure our crew and permits,” states an enthusiastic Paulette Mihale, Executive Producer. “We’re going to keep building on that momentum to get funding for our talent, post-production, and food.   Oh God how I love food.  This funding will help us fulfill all of our wonderful perks like DVDs, dinner with the executive producers, and the wrap party!  Also, food.  Did I mention food?”

Paulette, an east-coast transplant to LA, learned the hard way that it’s not always easy to make best friends in one’s late 20s.  This web series was born out of her own experiences to connect with all the people feeling lonely, out of place, awkward and maybe a little bit old, and ready to laugh at themselves.  She started the first campaign to reach out to all the lost and lonely 20-30 “somethings” forced to experience all the horrors of making new friends late in life by making this Web Series. 

In the series, the main character, Janie, takes out a personal ad and documents it all on her video diary. That’s where the nightmarish friend dates begin.

Angel investors helping fund the ‘Wanted: Best Friend’ Part II campaign to the next level will be eligible for perks such as handwritten thank you cards, DVD copy, wrap party invitations, film credit acknowledgements, dinner with Executive producers or an Executive Producer credit. 

The ‘Wanted: Best Friend’ Part II team understands not everyone may be able to give money to help the ‘Wanted: Best Friend’ Part II campaign, so they ask that those who cannot give monetarily help by spreading the word about the ‘Wanted: Best Friend’ Part II project online through social media such as Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr or record a video challenge for Vine, Facebook or Instagram to invite friends to give to or share this IndieGoGo fundraiser. Include #WantedBestFriend in all posts.
