One of my all-time favorite web-series, Ktown Cowboys, is coming back. This time, as a film…. soon. The original Ktown Cowboys webseries featured a group of guys having an epic adventure in LA Koreatown. If you haven’t seen it, check out this article HERE. Now they need some help raising money to market this upcoming film correctly. Check out their video :
More about the film below.
The film features the same crew, except it takes them back to a year before the webseries’ time, one week before Jason’s wedding. The guys get involved with the wrong people and have one week to set things straight.
Last year our team got together and created a web series called KTOWN COWBOYS. We’ve developed a strong following and now we want to turn it into a feature film. The web series follows a group of young Korean-Americans having one epic night in Koreatown Los Angeles. We feel that we owe it to our fans to create a movie that is much more epic and entertaining than our web series. To date we have over 1.2 million views combined on our web series.
As of now we have locked down most of the money which will be used for the actual shooting of the film. However, we would like to raise more money to properly market the film. Our goal is to premiere the film at a film festival such as South by Southwest, and then go on a nationwide tour to screen the film at various cities and meet as many of our fans as possible. The money we raise on Kickstarter will go toward all necessary materials and fees needed to market our film correctly. This means printing out posters, merchandise, flyers, ad space, etc.
They have set up a kickstarter page for Ktown Cowboys movie HERE. To help them out, go to the website, and make whatever donation you can make for them. They’re Asian Americans trying to make something happen, and they’re good, smart, and funny. To read more about Ktown Cowboys or watch the entire webseries, go to the Ktown Cowboys website HERE.
This is old, but in case you missed…
Ktown Cowboys, directed by Daniel Park and written by Danny Cho, is one hell of a funny short series about Ktown life. Mostly nightlife. This has almost everything you probably want to know about Ktown nightlife – drinking, eating, partying, clubbing, booking, and uh, apparently brawling.
I’ve met and heard Daniel Park and Danny Cho speak in a couple different ocassions, and they’re very funny and smart people. Considering that this is done on a super low budget, it’s very impressively well-done. More below.
Here’s synopsis and how the whole thing came to be on their website http://www.ktowncowboys.com
Ktown Cowboys came about in May 2009. Daniel “DPD” Park and Danny Cho were sitting and having a beer. They were reminiscing about their fun times in Koreatown (“Ktown”) Los Angeles when they were younger. Although both DPD and Danny had zero experience in making a movie, they set out to write a script about their glory days in Ktown. The idea was simple. Give the most realistic portrayal of Ktown ever done.
Synopsis : Johnny, a young Korean American from Richmond, Virginia, finds himself transplanted to Los Angeles’ Koreatown. Having been recently dumped by his girlfriend and with no immediate job prospects, Johnny is taken under the wings of his cousin Jason and a motley crew of party hoppers who are dedicated to having a good time and taking no prisoners in doing so.
More information and episodes are available on the website, but the website seems to run pretty slow now… so you can find them on youtube as well, HD quality. Don’t miss out.
Here’s episode 1 for your pleasure. crank up the resolution and watch it on full-screen.
