There has been some exciting development on a project I have been working on! It is called DinosaurUS ExploreUS and is the child of it’s creator Darren Lutz!
We are trying to make a TV Pilot, but we need your help.
Darren and Tina can explain it better than I can. So, here is a message from them:
“We are writing to you to very openly ask for your support in creating the first animation pilot episode for our children’s animation show called DinosaurUs ExploreUs.
Most of you have probably heard us talking about this show and may have seen the Opening Animation.
The concept of DinosaurUs ExploreUs is rooted in the fact that, “humans” are simply remarkable – irrelevant to race, sex, location, time or culture. No matter from which continent you hale or corner of the world you come from, it is humans that have imagined, engineered, and created every single extraordinary innovation found in the world.
We have been working two years and made a sizable investment into the development of the show’s concept, pitch bible (including all characters, environments and episodes), business plan, theme song and 2 1/2 min title song animation. The show has been presented to numerous broadcasters world-wide with ongoing interest in its development. To move to the next step of the pitch cycle, we need to produce the pilot script about our five Dinos visiting Mexico and the Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza, where they/we learn about it’s vibrant culture, music, how seasons were/are identified and the creation of the first calendar that is still in use today.
This is where we really need your help.
Upon discovering a website called Kickstarter.com, we first learned about what is being termed, Crowd Funding, where folks are asked to fund a creative project in small monetary increments in return for rewards.
The idea is that through networking and connecting with all of you and getting your support, then you talking to who you know, and they talking to who they know…so on and so on…the sheer volume of support in smaller funding increments will accumulate to raise the full budget.
Here is the catch…it is an all or nothing scenario. We need to have the full dollar amount of $48,000 pledged with in our 45 day allotted time frame, or we get nothing!! Scary and exciting at the same time, isn’t it? Your credit card is not charged until August 2 (that is our deadline). When we raise all of the funds, you will receive a notification that your credit cards was charged for you pre-designated funding dollar amount.
What do you need to do?
Please click on this link, or copy and paste it into your browser, that will bring you directly to our Kickstarter project. You can read all the information to learn more project details and you can review the various funding dollar amounts and their corresponding rewards. Lots of pretty cool stuff!
Then just click on the green Back This Project Button. You will be asked to sign up for a Kickstarter account (it is really easy)-so we know what you amount you are funding and where to send the rewards.
Then, you will be asked what amount you would like to fund and if you would like the rewards. Keep in mind the increments provided are just reward breakpoints – you can back the project in any amount up to $10,000J
The payments are processed through Amazon.com . If you have an account, you can just log in and select the credit card you would like to use. If you don’t have an account, you can very easily set one up.
Then…you will receive updates and more support requests throughout the 45 day campaign.
What do you get out of this whole thing?
A unique opportunity to not only help fill the minds of children with something inspiring, educational, worldly, stimulating, and fun, but to also be attached to the pilot episode of what has the potential to be the next world-wide sensation and to get some pretty cool Dino paraphernalia.
We really do need your support to bring this to life. You can become an official “backer” at any amount, but the more “backing” you give the more pretty unique things you get. Also, please keep in mind that it doesn’t just have to be personal backing, but if you have a company or think the company you work for would be interested, we love that as much.
If you believe in what we are doing, please support us by backing us on the Kickstarter website and then leaving a comment too. As importantly, can you also send this information onto to folks you know who would be interested in at least finding out more?

Please call or email us with any questions or anything else you might need.
This could be a life-changing experience.
Lots of love and hugs,
Darren and Tina
