Empire Strikes Back - What has Yoda been doing while he is waiting for Luke to show up?  And who was before Luke?

We LOVE movies.

But sometimes we can't help by wonder what happened before our favorite movie took place, or what happened right before our favorite scenes, or what happened to shape our favorite characters.

Horrible Prequels is a parody/comedy web-series that answers those questions.  

Horrible Prequels is an animated web-series from Follow Networks, written and directed by Chad Ettelbrick, with story and concept work from Matt Etter and Mark Blessing, all of which are regular contributors to MadChat and are part of the behind-the-scenes team at Follow Networks.  You can see the first still from the project here:

WE NEED YOUR HELP

We are writers, directors, comedians, and thinkers.  We are not animators.  Luckily, we've found the perfect animator for our project.  But as you know, animators don't work for free.  That is why we need your help fund our first six episodes and launch our series with a bang.

Patrick Cheng from CatTrigger will be doing the animating, and he makes great stuff.  You can check out his work here:

After our project is complete, we'll ask for your help in determining the next movies we do.  You can also sign up for exclusive content from Follow Networks to be sure you don't miss additional episodes.

The First Six

The first six episodes will come from these movies:

Harry Potter, The Usual Suspects, Jurassic Park, Empire Strikes Back, The Hunger Games, Field Of Dreams

From there, the sky is the limit.

Every dollar above and beyond our goal will be funneled into the production of additional episodes.

Risks and challenges

Animation is expensive, and we want to pay our animator his asking rate while delivering the finished product in a reasonable time. Luckily we've found a great animator, and we have already provided him with the first six scripts. Once our project is complete we can move quickly. This will help us launch the show on-time and with the fanfare that we think it will deserve.
