"The Waterman Movie" is the final chapter of the critically acclaimed animated series, "Waterman". The film stars comedic legend Leslie Nielsen.
My name is Bryan Waterman and on August 21st, 2003 I managed to accomplish a lifelong dream. It was on this day that I first saw my voice coming out of cartoon character's mouth. Now this may sound silly to some, but to me it was just about the greatest thing I had ever witnessed, and just days before I watched a man give birth to an eagle. OK, that last part didn't actually happen. It was an eagle that gave birth to a man, but I'm getting wildly and lyingly off track.
I had produced a short animated cartoon entitled "Waterman" for the sole purpose of fulfilling a dream and to make my friends laugh. Much to my surprise, we wouldn't be the only ones getting a laugh or two out of it. In fact, over three million people and counting would. When I realized that I had a successful project on my hands right out of the gate, it was obvious what needed to be done. I began turning "Waterman" into an animated series. Over the next seven years the series would win countless awards, be featured on television, attract celebrity guest stars, and nearly make it's way onto FOX.
In 2008, I sat down and wrote what I believed would be the final episode of the "Waterman" series. After months of writing, I realized that I had written a full length feature. Suddenly, I had accomplished another lifelong dream, writing a movie. With all of this dream accomplishing going on, I figured I would tackle one more and attempt to work alongside my cinematic hero. I had written a character into the story of what was now "The Waterman Movie" that I didn't see anyone else providing the voice for besides comedic legend Leslie Nielsen. After an incredible journey of emails, kindness, and even death (this whole story will appear on the DVD and no I didn't kill anyone) I found myself on the phone with the man himself. I had somehow managed to get Leslie Nielsen to star in my movie.
I have come to Kickstarter.com because I am one man attempting to accomplish something much larger than myself. I have come here to ask for your assistance in funding this project. The only thing stopping this movie from moving forward is my limited budget. Your generous donations would go towards acquiring the hardware, software and talent I will need to make this dream a reality. In return for your contribution, I have come up with what I believe to be some great rewards.
Before you decide whether or not you would like to back this project, I invite you to watch some of the series as well as listen to a special sneak peek of "The Waterman Movie".
