Introducing Watermelon: A feature film and album project starring punk rock supergroup OFF!

In case you missed the April Fools joke, you can watch it below.

Watermelon is a science-fiction documentary-comedy that follows OFF! through the band’s breakup and reemergence as time-traveling, crime-fighting superheroes.

THE MOVIE, which began shooting in 2016, continues in Los Angeles five heartbreaking years after OFF! have disbanded. Keith's hopes of landing the girl of his dreams are crushed when diabetes-induced erectile dysfunction threatens his last chance at romance. An infomercial promising powerful long-lasting erections lures Keith down a strange path to an eccentric doctor running a Brain Development Agency.

Mind-altering medication extracted from mysterious watermelons not only restores Keith's manhood, but also gives him the ability to travel through space and time. Keith offers the drug of destiny to the rest of the group as a solution to their problems. Dimitri, Steven, Mario, and Dale find renewed faith in OFF! as the watermelon helps turn the band into hardcore heroes who can see and predict horrific events before they happen.

THE ALBUM is the soundtrack to the film, which is the vehicle through which OFF! finds musical experimentation beyond their punk roots. Taking a cue from The Beatles, who filtered creativity through the alter egos of Sgt. Pepper’s, OFF! is in full color for the first time and heavier than ever.


IMPORTANT: You can pledge for as many rewards as you want but you have to create a new account using a different email address each time. And we hope you do! Thanks so much for your support!


One of the offerings we're most excited about in this campaign is inviting 750 of our closest friends and fans - THAT'S YOU! - to join us in Los Angeles, CA for the filming of OFF!'s triumphant return to the stage on January 11, 2020! Experience Watermelon: The Album in its entirety as a hardcore, mixed-media freakout!

BE THERE when we film our final concert scene! We want you in the crowd and in the movie as OFF!'s fanatic audience of loyal glam-punks. If you look the part, you might get interviewed on camera and wind up on the big screen!

Even if you can’t attend the show, pick up an Exclusive Red Vinyl Live LP (limited to 750) of the January 11, 2020 concert. This is a great way to help support the film, and it’s only available here!

If that's not exciting enough, a cursory survey of the actors and musicians who have appeared in OFF!'s prior music videos (Jack Black, David Yow of The Jesus Lizard, Dave Foley, Brian Posehn, T.S.O.L.'s Jack Grisham, etc.) should give you an idea of who is expected to participate in the movie. JOIN US in celebrating the cast and commemorate your time on set with a signed movie poster. Show your support for the film by getting a DVD signed by OFF! and a special 'Thank You' with your name in the rolling end credits!

If you're a fan of OFF! it's a safe bet you're a fan of Keith Morris. Owning a personalized item from an icon like Keith is pretty rare for anyone lucky enough to get one. That's why this offer is so special. Choose your favorite OFF! song and Keith will send you a SIGNED HANDWRITTEN LYRIC SHEET PERSONALIZED TO YOU! Only 150 fans will be able to pledge for this so don't wait!

We didn't want to overdo it, but Robert Fisher's second design looks good enough to eat. This Warhol-inspired tee is all tomorrow's parties and only available here!

Punk rock is about community, artistic freedom, a DIY approach to creativity, and fighting to say what you want. There is nothing we want more than to finish this movie, and we can with your help! Support Watermelon and help OFF! reach their goal!

Risks and challenges

With our script and production team locked, it's important to mention that we expect to finish shooting in early 2020. Filmmaking can be a lengthy process and above all, we want to make sure we create a movie that stays true to our vision.

We plan to start shipping rewards as early as September 2019, which allows us time to ensure that each of our offerings meet expectations.

We don't anticipate too many cinematic obstacles beyond the norm, but should the unexpected arise, we'll make sure to communicate any issues or delays with you right away.

Everyone who supports the film will receive updates with exclusive content and advance notice on any additional rewards along with our eternal gratitude. THANK YOU for your support!
