New docu-series aimed at creating jobs and educating Boston’s creative community
Launch is a wildly entertaining “how-to” reality show, currently raising money on Kickstarter.com to create jobs, “launch” the careers of local, talented people and inspire a nation.
Boston, Mass. – March 15, 2013 – A self-proclaimed "sucker" for people with passion and big dreams, Christina Contardo, 40, a Boston-based entertainment attorney, and Kristen Mallia, 32, a freelance graphic designer living in Brighton, Mass., have decided to let a film crew capture their quest to help produce four projects and ultimately make self-sustaining businesses out of four creative people's talents.
Launch is the result. A docu-series based in Boston that chronicles the challenges of launching four creative projects and serves as a “how-to” tool for entrepreneurs. Its goal is to create as many employment opportunities as possible in the Bay State and inspire a movement of creative people with a vision to go after it. Launch tests the theory that anyone can find a place to start, even in this economy.
The projects include an artist management company helping a singer from Lynnfield, Mass., and an artist from Chelsea, Mass., solidify their careers, a graphic design freelancer based in Boston, a DJ from New Hampshire putting together a music festival and a Boston real estate agent creating a website that marries fitness with charity.
If $150,000 is fully funded on Kickstarter by April 6th, Launch will be able to employ 20 people to create an informative and entertaining, 12-part, docu-series highlighting several of our New England creatives. The number of employees connected to the projects the show will be covering is estimated to double by 2014.
Launch is on a mission to personally take responsibility for the current unemployment “predicament” and contribute to getting our economy back on track, one small business at a time. Launch hopes to create positive change in the Commonwealth by educating a nation of creative people trying to launch their careers and love what they do.
