Season Two has begun.

 

If this is your first time watching the show, this episode is a good place to start.  It's a mostly stand-alone story, and if you like it, go ahead and check out the rest of the series here.

Help us fund season two of Chapel!

It's time!

Madison, Wis.-based Claymore Pictures is excited to announce the launch of a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for the production of season two of their action-packed, dark comedy crime series "Chapel."

Season one of the groundbreaking web series filmed and wrapped in 2010 to much acclaim and featured a host of some of the best acting and technical talents in the area. From gun fights on skateboards to an epic finale shot on location in New York City, the show that "runs on Facebook and the Dollar Store" did it all on practically zero budget. Now, in order to film season two and continue to grow/improve the show, Claymore Pictures is turning to the community of incredible fans and supporters of super independent film in the hopes of raising a small budget.

The "Chapel" Kickstarter campaign to raise a mere $1,000 begins TODAY, June 20, and will run for 30 days (until Wednesday Jul 20, 10:49am CDT). We have to reach $1k otherwise we get nothing at all - so please help us hit our goal! We'll use the money for better sound equipment, higher quality effects, locations, etc. and if you pledge there are fabulous prizes in it for you, too!

For pledging $5: A hearty, personal thank-you via the impersonal medium of email.
$15: A personalized video thank-you.
$30: A signed copy of the comic book version of "Inked" by Rob Matsushita, and a signed copy of the Chapel back story novel, "The Fix Up" by Emily Mills.
$50: Everything from $30 plus a copy of the Chapel Season One DVD!
$100: Everything from $50 plus a co-producer credit, and a character named after you (this character will die horribly).
$500: Everything from $100 plus a walk-on role in an episode!
$1,000: Everything from $500 (but a full producer credit instead of just co-producer), PLUS a very real beat down from your choice of Emily Mills or Kelly Maxwell (note: you will not be allowed to fight back).

To watch the complete first season of "Chapel" please visit our Vimeo page, or our home on the Web Series Channel. Chapel also has a Facebook page! More information about Claymore Pictures is available at our website, claymorepictures.net.

Tragedy! And new beginnings

Wooo boy we've been riding the rollercoaster for the past couple of days here at Claymore HQ. The newest episode of "Chapel," called "Inked," was finally finished and ready for uploading when the digital gods decided to throw a whole bucket of sh*t at the proverbial fan.

First, the upload to Youtube kept crapping out around 96%. Then, through a mind-bending combination of user error and really terrible backend design on Youtube's part, EVERY ONE OF OUR VIDEOS (save the oldest 7) WAS DELETED FROM THE ACCOUNT.

And it turns out there's no tech support for Youtube. So that was fun.

After a sufficient amount of teeth gnashing and banshee-like wailing, we decided to take this opportunity to start fresh - emerge, pheonix-like, from the binary ashes. So! What does that mean? Well, aside from a metric f*ck-ton of extra work here at HQ, it means this:

Chapel is moving to Vimeo!

That's right, we've decided to give Chapel her very own page/channel, and Vimeo's higher video quality and general ease of use had us sold. We want to seriously thank everyone who has followed and/or subscribed to Chapel on Youtube in the past...and GROVEL LIKE MAD in the hopes that you'll make the switch over to Vimeo with us and follow the show there.

** Here is the link to Chapel's Vimeo channel. Please click? Please subscribe? Yes thank you much! **

We're still in the process of uploading all of the older episodes so please bear with us - but! The good news is that the brandest newest episode, "Inked," is ONLINE NOW! So check it out in all it's comic book glory:
