The Kickstarter Report: ‘Tinker’


TinkerPrepare for a high-flying Steampunk adventure in Tinker, a new sci-fi fantasy webseries that is currently crowdfunding through KickstarterTinker is a series about the Tinkers, a father/daughter team of genius mechanics who live in the overpopulated city of San Francisco.  In an alternate history run by bulky and rather finicky machinery, the Tinkers are masters of their craft and are often called upon to repair, invent, and even retrofit anything from large engines to personal wrist watches. When a wealthy noblewoman, Lady Cushing, hires the duo, they are thrust into a world of air ships, danger, and excitement in which the balance of worldly power rests unaware in the tool-calloused hands of the Tinker family.  Featuring a stylish Steampunk wardrobe, props, sets, digital environments, and an original score and soundtrack of Steampunk-inspired music, Tinker aims to evolve the genre into a multi-ethnic, culture-exploring, collection of stories that does for Steampunk what Star Trek did for science fiction.

If successfully funded, all donations will go to every aspect of the pre-production and production processes for the pilot episode.  The entire first season of the show will contain 14 webisodes, which may be found by visiting the official website.  In addition, readers can see a behind-the-scenes trailer for Tinker in the below video!


Be sure to visit the Tinker Kickstarter page, and don’t forget to check out the backer rewards, which include Tinker trading cards, Steampunk jewelry, roles in the webseries, and an Executive Producer credit!  These are only a handful of the amazing rewards available and more will be added throughout the campaign.  The campaign closes on Monday, April 29th, so be sure to donate soon!
