Action! Adventure! Satire! Follow the troubled lives of monsters as they attempt to make art films in a post-apocalyptic Hollywood!
Spectacular Epic Adventure!
A Satirical World of Savage Leviathans!
The money being raised on Kickstarter is to attract and hire sequential artists to aid in the completion of an official Monster Movies graphic novel that will tell the first part of the exciting story of these characters and this world. The project is broken in to different chapters and the desire is to have different artists working on each of the separate chapters to give the project a type of anthology of artwork while maintaining an expanding central narrative.
Monster Movies began development as an animation project to be pitched for television. As the story grew, the creators and designers of the initial animated segments, Dave W. Campbell and Angus MacPherson, thought it would be more appropriate to launch the world of Monster Movies as a graphic novel. This decision was made not to negate the possibility of future adventures delivered in other forms of media but rather to better seal in the collective sense, the creator-designed frame-workings and integrity of the project. The creators, Dave Campbell and Angus MacPherson, genuinely love the story of Monster Movies and the cast of characters and want to give the project the best start possible for a long term success. It is their hopes that the rest of the world will come to enjoy the experience of Monster Movies as much as they do.
The music used at the intro of the video is "The Trouble With Those Mothra Girls" by the fantastic band Daikaiju. http://www.daikaiju.org/
