About

Everyone is familiar with the superstar mascots that strut their stuff through the world’s biggest sports arena's - bringing smiles to children and firing up the fans in the stands!  But have you ever wondered about their lives BEFORE they made it to the main stage?

The Mascots are 4 high school seniors; dealing with peer pressure, girl troubles, and trying to make the "team".  It's everything you'd expect in the lives of your average, all-American, teenage....  Animals?

Yup!  Join us in producing three (10-minute) cartoon animations revisiting the wonderful world of teen-angst, seen through slightly different eyes. 

After all three episode are complete we'll package them into on nice 30-minutes "super show" to be published to the web and shopped the major networks.  The web is cool, but we like television!!!

It's going to be oh-so-awesome.

Risks and challenges

We're going to take those funds and use them to upgrade our production studio, including upgrading our animation software. Although there are very few risks involved there could always be a delay when it comes to perfecting the movement and flow of the characters. We will be spending a lot of time in these areas to ensure that we are producing the best cartoon we possibly can. Additionally, please be aware that there might also be delay's in the turn-around time for the pressing of the DVD's and t-shirts. However, please be confident that we are 100% committed to meeting our deadlines.

    A special email thanks from our staff. Bragging rights of course! If the show breaks big you can say "Hey! I put money into that thing!" Or... if you see us on the street, you can say "Hey man, I put $5 towards getting The Mascots up and running!" Basically, can't we agree that we'll both feel better if you put at least a little something into the project. Support the Arts! :)
