A surreal insano animated "Thundarr on Acid" adventure, this f'ed up feature film will force funnel funny until your brain explodes!!!

About this project

It is time for "Unicrom the Unicorn Barbarian". It is time to make a truly "out there" animated feature film, in the tradition of films like "Fritz the Cat", "Paprika", "Yellow Submarine", and "Heavy Metal", and that's what I'm going to attempt.

I'm going into this to make the CRAZIEST, FUNNIEST, MOST INSANE SURREAL ANIMATED FEATURE FILM EVER MADE, and I'm really going to need your support!!!

"Unicrom, the Unicorn Barbarian!" was the project I was ready to launch back in January 2013, before the documentary idea that became "The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?" took over all of my waking thoughts, and I had to do that one first.

Now that I'm in Full Production on the "The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?" Documentary, and I've delivered the "Grimm Fairy Tales Animated Pilot" to all the backers, the dream is back to reality and I'm ready to launch "Unicrom, the Unicorn Barbarian" as my next Kickstarter project!!!

Why go with Kickstarter? I'm a "well known" director who has worked on some of the most popular cutting edge successful shows over the last ten years. Why not get a studio to pay for this? The answer is quite simple really. I want to make EXACTLY what I want to make, and not settle for anything else. By raising the money myself, both you and I are going to get UNFILTERED material, and that is what is one of the greatest freedoms of the entire Kickstarter community, we all support each other in making what we all want to see and experience. I'm still doing jobs for studios, but this is the opportunity to really make content I'd like to see.

I'm asking to raise an initial $84,000 to make the Pilot Episode, with each additional episode costing $45,000 each, making the total $489,000 to fund and make all ten episodes, which will complete the first season as well as the Feature Film!

Anyone who has seen my directing efforts on the Adult Swim hit series "Metalocalypse" knows my unique blend of storytelling mixed with mind-bending visuals and surreal touches of comedy and horror. Outside of the professional jobs I've done for other companies, I've always worked on my own projects and poured my creativity into my stories and creations, and now its time for me to make something completely Schnepp!!!  Alongside several other projects, I've been developing "Unicrom the Unicorn Barbarian" for the past few years, getting the characters and story down, getting the look and concept designs started.

I am now ready to get "Unicrom" into his proper place in the Animated Feature Film World!!! Beyond Animation!!! Beyond Ratings!!! Beyond Stupidity!!! It's been described by my peers as "Thundarr on Acid"!!! True Ignorant Bliss!!!

Featuring the hilarious Vocal Talents of:

Mark Hamill

Dana Snyder

Laraine Newman

Martin Starr

Bobcat Goldthwait

With your help, I now bring you "Unicrom, the Unicorn Barbarian!" Help me kick out some freak style full on psychotic animation in 2014!!!

Risks and challenges

I'm going into this to make the CRAZIEST, MOST INSANE SURREAL ANIMATED FEATURE FILM EVER MADE, and I'm really going to need your support!!!

Making an Animated Feature Film is going to take a lot of work, but I've been preparing to get this done for the past few years now. Producing and Directing "Metalocalypse" and "Grimm Fairy Tales Animated" were truly great warmups for me!!!

With the budget for the first episode coming in at $84,000, I've budgeted the additional episodes at $45,000 each. I'm hoping we can raise $489,000 and fund all ten episodes, which will complete the first season as well as the Feature Film!

After we reach our goals of raising over $489,000 and funding Episodes 1 through 10, this is what it will take to make these additional special Episodes.

Additional $45,000: The Secret Unicrom Origin Episode Added!!!!!!

2nd Additional $45,000: "Brony" SuperWack GrazoRubberTouch Episode Added!!!!!!

3rd Additional $100,000: Live Action Unicrom the Unicorn Barbarian
Episode Added!!!
