About this project
METAL MULE is something you won't soon forget. The entire series revolves around being completely unorthodox, with its colorful characters, and thrilling story line. Our first season has in total 11 episodes, which will each be 5 - 10 min shorts to introduce the world to this new animated series.
All episodes will premier at Fyre Fetish's official website fyrefetish.com which is still under construction. Once the website is complete it will not just be a home for METAL MULE, it will be open for other animators to freely upload their work. We hope for all types of animation such as: stop motion and CGI to be uploaded. Fyre Fetish's website will also have an extra feature that will make us stand out: a broadcast simulated live stream, with first come first serve regime. This means that uploaded animations will be placed in a lineup, which will play continuously until complete, simulating a live broadcast.
We have high hopes for this webseries, but it will not come to fruition without your help! The website is expected to be ready for open use by February 2013, with the METAL MULE episodes expected to be completed by December 2013. The Fyre Fetish team will take you with us on our journey to completing this project with updates, photos, and vlogs.

A little something extra
Here is just a little something extra from our sound engineer Tony
$30,000 - create 11 episodes 5 - 10 mins each
$45,000 - make merchandise such as: stuffed animals, t-shirts, ipod cases etc
$50,000 - get started on recording the voice acting for season two!
$55,000 - once season 1 has been completed, start animations
for season 2 immediately after.
$60,000 or more - complete 11 episodes for season two (hoping to do more than just 11 for season 2).
Risks and challenges
There are two main risks that come with completing this project:
1.) Makeing sure the animations are completed with enough time to properly edit, and fine tune the episodes.
2.) Making sure the website doesn't crash if there happens to be an enormous wave of uploads all at once.
Even so we are a group of talented individuals, and we will make sure to plan for all contingencies.
Another risk is undeniably making sure everyone who pledges gets their rewards in a timely manner. But we are all determined, and too stubborn to give up. So we plan to bring in all the help we can in sending out these rewards. Every family member and friend we have will have to get down and dirty with reward sending binges. Even the family cat may have to get his paws dirty.
