The inevitable destruction of planet Earth is upon us, however there is hope. A group of extreme vegan scientists have found another Earth-like planet which can hold life. Of course, their hate for humanity and love for all animals has them sending a number of space ships with only animals and food supplies to this distant planet, as they believe humans are the cause of all destruction. Spread across this new planet are a number of magic trees, which, within time, have given the animals the power to think, to talk and communicate with each other, to walk and build, just like humans.

Our series is set in this mysterious world where each episode has it’s own sub-story. We are introduced to multiple main characters and develop an understanding of the town they live in, named Eden. Comedy is prominent throughout the episodes, whilst also hinting towards an overall darker theme of the show. The series will follow the lives of group of friends, who end up unravelling the corrupt conspiracy that surrounds the town.    

Krooked Tease is the love child of Jake O'Connor, founder, creative writer and head animator, and Ian Brew, creative writer and voice actor. In 2015, Jake started a small project making various t-shirt designs and stickers; selling merch in shops, online and at markets.

As the project slowly grew so did the passion to create an animation series using the characters from the t-shirts. And so, Jake and Ian started working on a mini series introducing a unique style and variety of characters.

We have a strong passion for creative art, cartoons, entertainment and humour. Through this we wanted to create something that reflects our personalities and also something that many of you out there can relate to. An animated series has been a dream of our as we absolutely love cartoons. Our inspirations range from classics like Ren and Stimpy and Pokemon to South Park or Rick and Morty.

We want to create a story that's captivating and inspiring, a show that you can't wait to see the next episode. It will make you laugh and fall in love with the characters. We know with your help we can achieve this.

We feel in the last few years there has been more of a demand for adlut cartoon series. With successes like Rick and Morty, which truly push the boundaries in concepts, we believe there is an audience for Krooked Tease. We see that people are interested not only in unique animation styles but the developing story and underlying message of the show. We need resources and support from you to bring our project to life.

Donations for the fund will allow us to hire talented composers and sound designers to work on the score for the pilot. It will help us build a team of artists and animators to help quicken the process, because currently it's just Jake doing all the illustration, animation and design work! We will be able to hire and pay voice actors to work with us. And also it will help pay for proper equipment.

We are incredibly passionate about this project and are determined to get it off the ground running, but we know we can't get far without you! So please, the most helpful way to support this project is to DONATE to our Kickstarter campaign.

Also, if you could SHARE our Kickstarter on social media it would be just great! Tell your family, friends, co-workers, and community about Krooked Tease and encourage them to donate and spread the word! And FOLLOW US on our social media to stay updated with all our progress.

This couldn't be possible without your support and it means everything to us here at Krooked Tease. Help fund our dream.

Risks and challenges

Working solo on the project's illustrations and animation isn't as easy and stress free as one might think. There is a lot of work to be done, but we're 100% committed to working on this project and getting it done to the highest standard possible. This entire project will be created using digital media and with great attention to detail and production. The main costs needed to be covered are for labour, with a team of great artists and animators helping us. We are confident that we can not just succeed, we will take our work to the next level. We have some artists, animators and sound producers lined up to work with us, so we are ready to take this project on, we just need your help and support.
