Hey, Guys, Matt Conant and Steph Yuhas here. You might know us from our work on the reboot of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie.

You probably don’t know us, though, because we’re extremely non-famous. And that’s fine with us, because we’re the awkward creative-types who prefer to stay behind-the-camera. For many years, we’ve produced content with the goal of opening peoples’ mouths with laughter and filling their bellies with wisdom. We write strong female protagonists, LGBT heroes, and diverse ensembles.

If you are new here, we encourage you to click on our writing reel above or visit Cinevore.com and YouTube.com/CinevoreFilm to watch any of the hundreds of hours of award-winning content we’ve produced. Ensemble comedies include Nerd vs. Geek, Moot, OverAnalyzers, and Super Plumber Bros. We've also been frequent co-writers/producers on Living in 8-Bits and Victorian Cut-out Theatre. To date, we've released most of our work for free online, running the occasional Kickstarter to fund the manufacture of DVDs, books and exclusive merchandise for our most loyal fans. We even started Project Twenty1, a non-profit to help emerging artists create original films and animations.

With your help, we've achieved a lot in the last few years! Our last Patreon initiative was called the Beat-Down-the-Door Campaign, and we're proud to say it was phenomenally successful. We've been taking meetings and pitching projects to studios and distributors, including nearly every network you could name, and we now have four projects (two kids animated, one adult animated, and one live-action dramedy) in different stages of development with a variety of partners.

Our network of contacts now includes the people we've been trying to meet for over a decade. Which means our current campaign can be much more surgical: getting these projects seen - whether that means broadcast, cable or streaming. Using the contacts we've developed in the past year and a half in Los Angeles, to bring you and the rest of the world some truly original, fun TV programming - and maybe one or two literary projects while we're at it.

We're calling this initiative the TV-or-Bust Campaign.

We hope you'll join us for the process, and we promise we'll keep you in the loop in every way we can that doesn't break our ever-expanding pile of NDAs.

Simply put, backing our Patreon or making a one-time donation through PayPal helps us reach more people and create more work. You can see our current goals, as well as the numbers behind them, in public Backer Updates. Once you become a Backer, you will also see exclusive behind-the-scenes reading material (which may end up in one of Stephanie's upcoming books, or Matt's table-top role-playing game). We've outlined our plan in the link above and will keep you up-to-date with exclusive Patreon backer-only videos and blogs.

Thanks for your continued support!
