About this project

The Grim is an ongoing series project that takes the characters of Grimm's fairy tales and nursery rhymes and works to connect their stories.


The story begins with Red Riding hood. It's been months after the wolf attacked and she has completely blocked the traumatizing incident from her mind. As she continues to walk into the forest to search for the grandmother she still believes is alive the truth of that day begins to come back to her. Along with this she comes to learn that the wolf is relentlessly searching for her for reasons she doesn't yet understand.

What commences is a story that finds Red searching for the origins of the wolf, the reason it hunts her, and how to stop it. Along the way she'll encounter many other familiar fairytale characters who will all have a mysterious connection to her journey and the wolf.

This is a story about a girl coming to age in a harsh and grim world that is very unforgiving with its life lessons. The Grim also aims to take fairy tale creatures like Gingerbread men and make them surprisingly human

The Grim uses miniatures sets, 3d characters and puppets to create an enchanting fairytale world with a grounded look that won't take up tons of render time for forest environments and fur.   

funds will be used to create sets, characters, effects, and to find other animators and puppeteers, as well as helping this project make its way into film festivals like Sundance.  The funds will also be used to find actors with real accents to bring an authentic feeling to the Grims Europe setting.

With the help of the kickstarter community I plan to create the first few shorts of this story and take them to the film festival and online market to generate a following and continue the series.

Kickstarter members who donate to the Grim will receive rewards exclusive to kickstarter for their help from thank you letters, sculptures, concept art prints to pieces of the miniature set used in the film.

And along with this you'll be helping me achieve an amazing dream of bringing this world to life.
