Living With Uncle Charlie

Georgia born and raised, but now based in Los Angeles, filmmakers Joseph and his twin brother Joel Harold, like so many before them, made the move out west a year ago to make it big and to make an impact in the film industry.

But they were well aware of the fact that "no one is going to hand you an opportunity, so you have to create one yourself.

However, they admittedly made a miscalculation and decided that the way to achieve their goal was first to make “the scene”, as they call it, by hanging out “with powerful black active entertainers” with the belief that, if they hung around these guys, they would give them an opportunity to share their ideas. However they now realize “boy were we wrong.

Therefore, the brothers got together and decided that they were on their own and created their first web series, The Cost of Living, which got almost close to a million viewers. But the lack of funds prevented them from making any more episodes after the third one.

But that didn’t stop them, and now they have created a new series, Living With Uncle Charlie, which is actually based on real experiences involving their real life family.

They pitched the idea to anyone famous (and even just barely famous) that they knew or could approach in the business: “We pitched this idea to almost everyone pulled out their own all our contacts and still no one wanted to make this project happen."

So they dug deep into their pockets and financed the pilot wepisode themselves, but now have turned to crowd fundraising sources, such as Kickstarer, to raise the money to make future episodes.

To contribute to their Kickstarter campaign, go HERE.
