Greetings All. Thank you for stopping by, perhaps you'd like some freshly wet leaves and a slice of Battenburg whilst you're here? Excellent, the monkey will bring it round later. Well isn't this jolly and, well to be darned honest about it, darned exciting! We're making a Tea-V series (see what I did there) and it's all about me, Professor Elemental. Imagine, if you can, a cross between Doctor Who, Sherlock Holmes, Flight of The Conchords, Jay-Z and a badger in a hat. That would really be quite something, wouldn't it? Well, you'll be overjoyed to know that with your help you won't have to spend endless seconds deliberating over what such a show would be like, you can actually make it happen! But if you will allow me to be serious for a moment then I must express the following with my Sincerity Trousers on... I have read many a script before and been offered many an opportunity to make funny videos and so forth but this one feels different. It's very funny, intellgently written and I genuinely believe it has some fantastic potential to turn into something incredible. Our production team, fronted by Benjamin Field from Holomedia, houses a myriad of exceptional talent including the wonderfully gifted Director of Photography known as 'The Moog' who shot both Cup of Brown Joy & Fighting Trousers. Unfortunately despite having put together this wonderful opportunity for me to create this series, due to lack of funds I am having to ask my dear fans to help support us to kick things off, however as a sign of the huge appreciation of your support I have prepared a plethora of exciting gifts to mark your donations! Please do have a look at the rewards section and if you do feel you can donate something towards this then know that you won't just recieve the rewards offered but also a deep and heartfelt thank you. In terms of the future for this project we have some wonderful people in Media Land who have shown interest in taking this on in the longer term, if we can prove by means of this web series that the show is funny and all can be excellent. So you see your money really can make a difference to this project, because without you it really cannot happen. Thank you so so much for reading this. Your loving Professor. P.S If the monkey doesn't turn up with the tea and battenburg my apologies but he really is awful at Cyber Stalking. Overview The Chronicles of Professor Elemental is written by Benjamin Field & Jason Smith with original music and lyrics by Paul Alborough. Paul is the man behind the YouTube sensation 'Professor Elemental' and pioneered the genre of Hip Hop music, now known as 'Chap Hop'. The genre is that of Spoof sci-fi / murder mystery / whodunnit with lashings of gags and a Monkey in a Tuxedo. 'Chronicles' is a 3 x 10 minute Web Series which will be launched in June 2012. The aim is to use the 3 'Webisodes' as a full 30 minute pilot for pitching to Production companies with access to commissioning editors.

Unfortunately, the powers that be forbid the altering of such things - tis a pity but them there's the facts. Fortuitously however you had stumbled across this missive prior to moving along the information super 'A Road' and Googling the word 'Recursion' to spot the subtle humour that lies within!

<p> Afternoon Prof. ÊMaybe you should amend the funding target? ÊOtherwise the careless might pass by under the misapprehension that you had an excess of oof. ÊI almost did...</p>
