thesearethedayswellneverforget:

My flatmate and I are very VERY excited for The Case of the Gilded Lily, the next @shipwreckedcomedy production, that everyone should go support on Kickstarter NOW because if it’s half as fabulous as their precedent production Edgar Allan Poe Murder Myster Dinner Party, it’s gonna be AMAZING.

This fanart is the work of my talented flatmate (my only contribution was standing next to her and saying “that looks great !”), but since she doesn’t have twitter or tumblr i’m the one posting it.

in short : Shipwrecked comedy are very talented people and you should check their productions and Kickstarter.

*Though admittedly not yet made.

This is so cool!!

We’re having a Fig and Ford fan art contest!

As a part of our Kickstarter campaign, we’ll be hosting a fanart contest this week! Draw any of our characters, a scene you’ve imagined will be in the short–whatever your heart desires! 

The Shipwrecked team will be judging the entries based on how well they capture the essence of the Gilded Lily, not on artistic merit, so artists of all skill levels may apply!

Be sure and include the Kickstarter link in your post and tag it #FigAndFord to be eligible for consideration. Entries are due Friday, June 16th at midnight Pacific time, and a winner will be announced during the following Sunday’s livestream. The winner will receive a signed character poster of their choice from the campaign!

Happy drawing, and drop a dime to solve the crime!

THE GILDED LILY HAS HIT ITS GOAL!!

Wow, we did NOT expect to hit our funding goal this early in the campaign. You guys and gals are amazing! Less than a week?! Too good to be true.

Now that we’ve hit our goal, we’ve got some pretty fun stretch goals that we’re excited to aim for. $25K is the bare minimum we needed to make this happen, so the more we can get, the bigger and better this short will be. 

SUNSET BOULEVARD – $30K: If you get us to $30,000, the Shipwrecked crew will record a series of vlogs taking you around some of their favorite Hollywood haunts and hangouts. Places that inspired them growing up outside of LA and that inspire them now as they live here.

THIS GUN FOR HIRE – $35K: If we hit $35,000, everyone’s favorite BTS photographer and hype man, CHRISTOPHER HIGGINS, will once again be flown out to document the Gilded Lily shoot. He’ll be taking his trademark gorgeous photos and will shoot and produce Behind the Scenes Features exclusively for backers who pledged $25 dollars and up.

OUT OF THE PAST – $40K: At $40,000, we’ll add a new character to the short – a surprise cameo of a real life Old Hollywood legend.

THE BIG COMBO – $45K: $45,000 smackers will get you a scene or trailer from one of Wilhelmina Vanderjetski and Cliff Calloway’s hit movies. We won’t have time to get to them in the short, but this way, you’ll be able to see what all the fuss is about!

BLADE RUNNER – $50K: This is it. The big one. The motherload. Shipwrecked director and hirsute hipster William Joseph Stribling will SHAVE HIS BEARD! He has had this thing for years and we’re not sure we’ll recognize him without it. Let’s make it happen.

THE BIG SLEEP – $100K: Look, if we make $100,000 to fund this short, we will definitively solve the case of the Black Dahlia. No more questions, no more mystery. We will just tell you who did it.

We’re pretty excited about these stretch goals, and we hope you will be too. Thanks for making The Gilded Lily such a success already!

Thursday, June 8th, 2017

shipwreckedcomedy:

There’s good news and there’s bad news, kid.

The good news is The Case of the Gilded Lily Kickstarter is going WAY better than we could have even imagined. We weren’t sure if you all would go for these new characters, this new time period, this new dark and gritty world. You guys have welcomed this new project with extreme enthusiasm and we are flabbergasted and delighted! We definitely didn’t expect to make this much of our goal this soon. Which is where the bad news comes in…

We don’t have our next two reveals ready! Our next two actors weren’t available on our first day of poster shooting last month, so we decided we’d just shoot them this Saturday, the 10th. And again, we just didn’t really dream we’d hit $20K sooner than five days into the campaign. So we feel really bad letting you down and not having a reveal when we do cross those milestones, but we WILL release the next poster AS SOON AS WE CAN MAKE IT Saturday. We hope you’ll understand and forgive us!

This Kickstarter is far and away exceeding our expectations, and we are excited for the next few weeks of it! We still have a lot of fun coming with our livestreams, and fanart and fanfic contests we’re planning on, and other fun stuff. We’ll be revealing some sweet sweet stretch goals soon, because the more money we raise, the bigger and better The Gilded Lily will be. We’re so honored that you guys like our content enough to help us make it. 

Thanks for understanding and sticking with us. We couldn’t solve this case without you!

THE CASE OF THE GILDED LILY IS NOW LIVE ON KICKSTARTER!

So what you’re saying is, the deal is already going south, eh? Too much cheddar? You weren’t as ready to play with the big boys as you thought you were?

Yeah, that’s what we thought. Lucky for you we’re a forgiving fandom. And we know you’re good for it. So we’ve decided, out of the goodness of our hearts, to give you another chance.

Just don’t let it happen again, see? This is a nice little racket you’ve got here. It’d be a shame if something were to happen to it.

Were you at the Vivian Nightingale Memorial Ball last year? Oh boy. Sounds like a place I’d be. Do you know an Eddie Dantes? Who now?

Poe Party rewatch [66/-]

Chapter 8: The Cask of Amontillado

Whoa! Vivian Nightingale exists (or at least existed) in-world in Poeparty!

This makes me very happy. (Though also, concerned. Hopefully she was hosting the memorial, rather than the one being memorialized.)

shipwreckedcomedy:

1939, Los Angeles. A young starlet is in trouble. What will it take for a private eye and a junior reporter to crack the case?

THE CASE OF THE GILDED LILY IS NOW LIVE ON KICKSTARTER!

Shipwrecked Comedy has got a hot take on a cold case, see? It’s a classic Hollywood whodunit, but private dick Ford Phillips can’t solve it without your help! A young starlet is in trouble. What gives with her suspicious co-star? Will that sultry lounge singer be singing to the coppers? How deep does this rabbit hole go? We got plenty of questions, but we only get the answers if we hit our Kickstarter goal, see? And if we don’t, we’ll have to pack up our hat boxes and get out while the getting’s good.

We’re so excited to embark on a new journey this summer as we crowdfund a noir short film that we’ll premiere at Buffer Festival in the fall! There’s a lot more mystery to uncover, and we’re so excited to share it with you. What are you waiting for? Drop a dime to solve the crime!
