More Chocolatey Rich VOWOL, Please. (Thanks, Nancy.)

So what are we doing here? Well. The last 2.5 years of nearly weekly VOWOL; coordinating, facilitating, scheduling, calling, operating, emailing, marketing, and enjoying has taken quite a bit of time and money. There have been many people getting agents, paying VO gigs, learning career-transforming self-direction, and just plain old recreational fun. One thing that has made this particularly challenging is to get the great studio and guests to the voice over actors who could really use a break. So what's this chipin thing?

The idea is that the order is different for this one. Instead of setting up a few dates, then finding actors, then collecting the money to pay the studio, we're reversing everything.

Get the funds first!
Get the studio dates locked!
Find the actors interested!
and finally, based on a vote, allow the donators to pick the 8 actors they'd like to see take the series.

This is crazy, and I don't know if it will work or not. Worst case scenario is that I learn a lesson and never do it again. At best, all parties win (It's great to include myself in this party.)

Please give me your thoughts or specifics. This should be fun.
