Project Description

We Need Your Support to Shoot the Pilot!

 Shooting Date: October 22, 2018

 

About: Bodega Makeover is a docu-reality web series providing store improvements and healthy eating options for local neighborhoods. Bodega Makeover is similar to Extreme Makeover Home Edition, Hotel Impossible and This Old House.

 

Did You Know: Access to healthy food is a challenge for many Americans—particularly those living in low-income neighborhoods, communities of color, and rural areas.  

 

OUR GOAL:

 

  • Bodegas play an important role in their communities. We strive to promote healthier options in bodegas and tell the stories of the Hispanic/Urban communities that have less access to healthy food, and the role bodegas play in connecting families and communities.

 

  • Bodega Makeover will travel nation wide to Hispanic and Urban communities to ensure fresh and reliable food supplies are available.

 

  • The Bodega Makeover show will be a blueprint in educating our communities about healthier food options- in an entertaining way. We have targeted some of today’s top food brands for sponsorship.   

Story: The Determined Owner

 

Anyi and her husband are the third owners of a local bodega in Lynn, MA. The bodega has a reputation for being a revolving door for new owners who fail to connect with customers. Anyi is determined to regain the trust of the community.

 

Will they be able to earn trust and boost access to healthier food options for their community?

    The Project FAQs

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    What is the production cost?


    $70,000 is an estimated budget to cover the cost of the productions and construction. We are approaching local and commercial brands for sponsorship support.

     

    How long will it take to complete the pilot?


    Pre-production will take about two months, and that’s to secure permits and contracts. The production stage takes about two weeks or less to film. We will coordinate with the contractor and film different stages of the transformation. Post-production will take about seven weeks or less to complete.

     

    Where will this be aired?

    All episode will be viewed on the Bodega Makeover website using the YouTube platform.

     

    Who’s your target audience?

    24yrs-45yrs. Millennial will be the dominated viewer. This show will attract Millennials because they are very environmentally conscious and resonate with childhood memories of shopping in bodegas.

     

    How will the show work with bodegas that operate a predominately cash-based business?

    Bodega Makeover will travel throughout the U.S. in search of bodegas and communities in need. We will use financial figures based on their financial reports and tax documentation. We will ensure that the bodega owners we work with are complying with federal, state, and local obligations to avoid any potentially embarrassing situations.

     

    Will healthy foods cost more? In a low income community, is that viable?


    We are actively securing business deals with local farmers and the state healthy food initiatives in exchange for media exposure or other benefits. We could also try to secure a government subsidy.
