Axiom Budget Challenge is a Canadian-American game show that focuses on building budget PCs and laptops. It was announced at SDCC 2017 for a Fall 2017 release. It is produced by Firebasket Studios, Axiom Entertainment, and Omnifilm Entertainment. This is the first live-action project for Firebasket Studios.
During an episode of Virtual Breakfast, Chaossy accidentally leaked out that a game show was to be made by Firebasket Studios (then RaGE-Typewriter) in 2017. The line was edited out in playbacks.
At the SDCC panel for Axiom Entertainment, it was officially announced that Axiom Entertainment, Firebasket Studios, and a Canadian production company will be producing a PC build game show that will air on AxiomTechTV.
AxiomTechTV personality, Luke Patel, was announced as the host. Filming began in June of 2017, and a fall hiatus that started in late August until mid-September, with Fall filming for the last few episodes of the first season. Production of the Fall season is scheduled to end in mid-November. A live episode is planned for early December.
A second full season was announced in September of 2017, with a release date of Spring 2018.
Regular episodes usually start out with the passing out of the money to the competitors, the explanation of the rules. Then, competitors go out and research on sites such as craigslist, local businesses and sending out calls.
Each contestant is documented by the show's camera operators, Chelsea and Henry (who have worked on Custom PC). The camera being used is the Panasonic 4KHD Camcorder.
