Instead of a personal video where I mumble and stammer on about why I need money to fund my animation project, my animators and I (here at Whatever Jake Makes Animation) put our best foot forward and created an animated teaser trailer for Aloha Grocery. Go ahead, click on the image above and watch our video! As a potential backer for this project, you can now see the style and look of our animated project, get a sense of our humor, and realize that we mean business when it comes to completing this animated film. The money funded by this website will cover overall production costs, software, equipment, dvd production, and film festival entry fees. It also goes to paying the people who are involved in bringing Aloha Grocery to fruition. This is a completely independent production and without financial support from this website, we will be unable to complete this animated film. We need your help!
This cartoon is a caricature of corporate grocery store chains and has a plot that is both fun and familiar. It features a unique animation style, creates a whimsical 'storybook' environment, and is aimed at being enjoyed by an all-age audience. Aloha Grocery follows one elderly customer's horrible and lackluster shopping experience throughout a quirky, Hawiian-themed grocery store that prides itself on its customer service. Along her journey she interacts with five eccentric employees who will keep us laughing as their attempts to help the customer, do anything but. Aloha Grocery is a fun animated short film full of laughs and warm and gooey in its light-hearted center.
