Mission Statement

Our project aims to increase representation and inclusion by utilizing the talents of ALL individuals, regardless of age, race, gender, sexuality, religion, ability or otherwise. Our goal is to create opportunities for individuals of all backgrounds, beliefs, and lifestyles in the film industry.

The Story

The Campaign is about a tight-knit group of high school friends reuniting ten years after graduation and deciding to pick-up where they left off with their long dormant role-playing game.  The game takes an unexpected turn and transports the group to a fantasy world of magic, wizards, and orcs.  The sort of thing which happens everyday - right?  In order to find their way out of this unknown world, these 7 friends must find a way to work together after being out of each others' lives for a decade.  All while trying not to panic and maintain their sense of humor.



This web series combines fantasy, action, and humor to tell a story about friendship, growth, and change.   It's Lord of the Rings meets American Reunion meets that Dungeons & Dragons cartoon from the 1980s.  We hope to create a quality web series which is funny and entertaining to both gamers and non-gamers.



The Campaign began as an idea by creator and long-time Game Master, Matt Metzger.



He pitched his idea of a live-action, fantasy web series to head writer of Sketchworks Comedy, Bill Szabrak. The two then enlisted the help of writers Cathy Poley and John D. Babcock III.



Then came one simple post: ‘Casting Call: High Quality Comedic Fantasy Web Series’ which resulted in an amazing group of actors joining the cast. That post also lead to a call from Josh Warren, one of the founding members and owners of Action Show Studios in Atlanta, Ga. Loving the pitch, Josh's partner, Sean Bokelmann, and Action Show Studios agreed to join the team to make this happen.



Add into the mix other geniuses found along the way, including Alex Breijak and Bethany Michel (amazing make-up artists and Creator of Orcs!), Lisa Duncan (costuming, makeup, and all-around awesome), and Ottlie Murray (all-star crafty prop/set designer) and The Campaign came to life.



With a full party filled with passion, talent and ambition, the team that IS The Campaign, along with your help, looks forward to an adventurous journey ahead.
