We are attempting to build the first underground musician/artist directory by incorporating their works into an ongoing animated web series.
As struggling artists in the Chicago artist community, we know how hard it can be to get your work recognized. Our ultimate goal with Little Brass Bird is to establish an online directory of local & underground musicians/ artists/ writers etc. Within this directory will be photos, bios and links to their website.
The Little Brass Bird animated show will incorporate the works from all of these artists/musicians into each broadcasted episode. Thus, giving the collaborative talents unique exposure to their work and producing a show with extremely diverse potential.
The story revolves around our line of plush toy characters. Robin and Rhodrick who are new owners of an old clock shop in the middle of a growing city. As coffee shops fuel towering corporations and modernist buildings erect in record numbers, these two entrepreneurs are fighting harder than ever to keep their humble store from going under.
Their lives become even more troublesome after they stumble upon a forgotten room built by the last owners. Lost within a pile of mysterious broken old cukoo clocks lie magical creatures, distortions of reality and time bending adventures.
The ultimate goal is to use the donations to Incorporate (LLC) our company. This will make our business official; giving us legal liability, trademark and copyright products under the Little Brass Bird name. We are also in need of supplies for producing plush toys/t-shirts/tote bags/film productions and other materials to get the company/show running full speed.
We will have a large line of products tied with the show and are artist made. Many of our products will make use of recycled materials. The general idea of the show is to make the old new again, which will reflect in everything we do for Little Brass Bird.
