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 of them convinced local writers, Cathy Poley and John D. Babcock III, to get involved.
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 led to a call from Josh Warren, one of the founding members and runners of Action Show Studios. Loving the pitch, Action Show Studios agreed to join the team to make this happen. Action Show Studios went full service mode for The Campaign: from providing equipment, directing, filming, and pre AND post production!
Add into the mix other geniuses found along the way, including Alex Breijak (make-up artist), Ottilie Murray (costuming, props, set designer), Becky Cassidy (costumer), Alan Cassidy (set designer/builder). These are the folks who make the skin of The Campaign!
With a full party filled with passion, talent and ambition, the team that IS The Campaign looks forward to adventurous journeys ahead.
