About this project

Welcome to "Wiseguys and Whack Jobs"!

We are the Genco Olive Oil Company.   That's right, the olive oil from the movie "THE GODFATHER".  We have created an animation show called "Wiseguys and Whack Jobs".   Starring; Vincent Curatola A.K.A, Johnny Sacks as Vito Carbone, Joe Perry (Aerosmith) as Hyman and Chuck Zito as Paulie.

Our goal is to raise funds for the production of our pilot episode, "Tony Who?" In our first episode we trail the New York crew in their quest to find the right Tony!  We have teamed up with Clambake Animation from Watertown, MA to produce a 3-1/2 minute teaser... https://youtu.be/qd9X9I3SHJU...  from the first episode for your review. Our goal is to partner with a network and/or an on-line entertainment provider to deliver to you, the end user, a 12 episode first season.   We would appreciate your support in our quest!

Additional support beyond our goal will be invested towards future seasons.
