About this project

 

 

Hi there! We are "Meet the Pugs". You might already know us from "Kanye's Pug Calendar" or our "Meet The Pugs" Instagram which started as a photographic experiment to capture facial expressions of our pug Loulou for illustration work. 

With this campaign though, we're here to introduce you to our animated show, the actual starting point of this whole journey.

 

Meet The Pugs is an offbeat animated show about the everyday and every night adventures of skateboarders and their entourage. Every episode features a different skateboarder and his wildest and most hilarious experience in Barcelona.

 

After killing it at "International Cartoon Forum 2013" we've been approached by various TV networks as well as big production companies, but every time a so-called “Big Fish” was about to get involved, the magic of the show suddenly faded away. 

We realised that the corporate way doesn't really fit to what we want to do with the show and that there is only one way for us to do it. On our own with your help! 

 

Our aim is to begin airing in late spring of 2018. If we meet our minimal goal of €50.000, we'll create 2 more episodes plus an intro (animation + theme song) for the show. If we meet our final goal of €220.000, we'll create a whole season of 13 episodes with a 2-3 minutes duration.

 

The episodes will be released to the public every 2 weeks over 6 months through our Youtube channel. All Kickstarter backers will have exclusive access to the whole season a month prior to the public release.

     

 

The entire show is inspired by real life characters, locations and stories giving you an instant familiar feeling. Everybody will be able to relate to the Meet The Pugs world!

 

The casting of pro skaters and scripting of their stories has already started. The only thing missing is the budget and that's where you come into play! 

 

Very good question. Animation is a very expensive matter, especially when you want to produce independently in Europe. To explain where the money goes at the end of the Kickstarter campaign, we ordered a pizza :

 

 

 

               

The margins on the rewards were calculated to be fair for the backers but still help us raise the necessary budget.

Please bear in mind that we're trying to fund the production of the first season of our animated show and not launch an online shop.

If you wish to get several rewards make sure to pledge for the total amount of all the desired rewards.

Our minimum goal is indeed of €50,000, but with it, we can only produce a total of 3 episodes. Our aim is to produce a whole season of 13 episodes. For this reason, we created so-called stretch goals (see below).

 

               

 

Once your pledge has been placed, please make sure to share the campaign with all of your friends because more money means more episodes for you to watch. Also, some of your rewards will get an upgrade as detailed right above.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

Production delays are the most likely risk. With our episodes being 3 minutes long, we are able to prepare most of the material in advance and tightly schedule the production for fall 2017. Should any issues arise, this will give us plenty of time to address them without sacrificing our schedule. We're putting our hearts and souls into this show and want it done right. With your help through Kickstarter, we don't have to worry about the project being sidelined due to permits, bureaucracy or censorship, which are the major roadblocks for many traditional productions.
