Sequester is creating a reality tv show!

We aim to inspire a new era of online reality competition shows, and make them more accessible to the hopeful super fans who dream of being on them. The Sequester community is currently seeking funds to supplement the evolution of our Game Show. We are dreaming BIG and with your continued support we can grow our series and continue to make it a reality for you and others who've been waiting out for the opportunity to finally get cast for something like this.
 


Sequester not only provides a thrill for gamers, but also brings reality television down to earth. Every season of Sequester tries to incorporate different personalities from a variety of popular reality shows, giving fans the chance to compete with their favorite stars. Past contestants include Krista DeBono (Amazing Race), Tiffany Rousso (Big Brother), Michelle Meyer (Big Brother), Andrew Gordon (Big Brother), 
Judd Daugherty (Big Brother), Hamza Hatoum (Big Brother Canada), Jesse Larson (Big Brother Canada)Sindy WithanS (Big Brother Canada), Suzette Amaya (Big Brother Canada), Will Jardell (America's Next Top Model), Jamie Leigh Reichert (Catching Kelce), and Jay G (MTV Real World, MTV's The Challenge)


Thanks to a lot of dedicated volunteers Sequester doesn't have to cover the expense of hiring a team to come and help alongside production. It is fully produced by passionate super fans for the entertainment of other super fans! In the past cast members on the show pay a participation fee that helps assume the cost of what it takes to run the game, and make it an episodic production. It's our dream to make this experience as accessible as possible and acquire the funding to eliminate those financial obligations. With consistency in the quality of our content and evolvement of our community we believe one day adequate endorsements will flow to us more organically and we will be able to eliminate the need for crowd sourcing. Until then, to keep Sequester alive, and make it a reoccurring event on our calendars every year - we need your help.

100% of everything backed by you will be reinvested into our dream. Here is a look at the financial obstacles we face to run the game.

  • Cost to rent a location suitable for 20 cast members + production members. This location also needs to be big enough to separate eliminated players from standing players, as well has have a landscape for competitions. In the most recent season it was $5,000 for a 4 night location. 

  • Prize money. Thanks to a sponsor, players were able to compete for a prize and a return on their original investment to participate in game. The prize was $2500.

  • Cost of equipment. This varies from technological equipment that helps improve the quality of  the show aspect to materials for competitions in the game. Luckily we have acquired some things for our inventory that we can continue to reuse, but still need more to keep improving the quality of the production. Such as: more consistent video quality, lighting, and sound. 

  • Food. Feeding 20 cast members and x production members with different allergen restrictions while operating with no down time (due to time constraints) is complicated and difficult.

These are the basics. Sequester's official 2nd season required a budget of $10,000 to produce. It is very ambitious of us to seek this level of funding through our community, but everything helps! Sequester aims to adequately give back for your support the best way we can, and will continue to innovate our incentives as we continue to grow. 


Audrey Middleton, since appearing on CBS’s Big Brother 17, has utilized her platform to create a community around a new competition for the hopeful tv viewer. Audrey's goal is to forge an opportunity for super fans of reality television to partake in a competition that embodies the same essence of reality shows they love, but with all the upgrades our favorite shows don't offer!

The rest of production is made up of a newly formed family created through the game that brought them all together. Including Sam Loveridge (Black Hat), 
Brad Gilligan (Black Hat), Jayce Cornell (Black Hat), Nick DeLisi (Black Hat), Jamie Leigh Reichert (Black Hat), Josh Smith (Sequester 2), Jake Round (Sequester 2), Drew Hilliard, and Davy Akins. 
   
Since its inception in March 2016, over 100 people have competed on the online version of the show, and 43 people have competed in the Sequester Live series. Sequester is developing a thriving community of participants and viewers alike. Many members have become true friends and attended in-person Sequester meet-ups.

Our first goal is to get our idea off the ground and be able to fund what will be the infrastructure of this project. Once our production owns the materials to build the setting of the game we will immediately build it and then pursue goal #2!
