About

SERIES SYNOPSIS: The Super Fantastic Jurassick Parkour Four is an animated adult cartoon comedy that follows the lives of Hoover, Elvis, Albert and Dante, four slightly larger than human, upright walking, kooky dinosaurs that use parkour to fight crime against Rex Ruthless, a pathetically evil T-Rex. Set in illustrious Vello City, Mayor Uge, and his sensible assistant October O'Malley, team up with the four genetically adjusted dinosaurs to battle Rex and his Velocity Raptors; a pack of cloned rollerblading Velociraptors. The series focuses on the four dinos' lives as roommates, crime fighters, parkourists, and overly ambitious wannabes hoping to fit in with the humans. 

WHAT IS PARKOUR?

"Parkour is a holistic training discipline using movement developed from military obstacle course training. Practitioners aim to get from A to B in the most efficient way possible using only their bodies and their surroundings to propel themselves. Furthermore, they try to maintain as much momentum as is possible in a safe manner. Parkour can include obstacle courses, running, climbing, swinging, vaulting, jumping, rolling, quadrupedal movement, and the like, depending on what movement is deemed most suitable for the given situation." - Wikipedia

It allows us to get everything we need for this project. Pat and I used borrowed equipment and programs to make the sizzle, but in order to make the show we need our own equipment and software.

WHY KICKSTARTER? 

Pat and I want to make this project exactly the way we want and the way we believe it should be made, not the way a group of executives want. The money raised through this Kickstarter campaign will go directly toward the cost of making the episodes. 

WHY $25,000?

 We've got some pretty sweet Dino SWAG! Full descriptions and tiers to the right but here are a few examples of what we've got!

We will purchase a second computer and all accompanying software to help production move faster and more efficiently! Pat will be able to draw along side Vannick in Toon Boom Animate Pro 3. We can also designate one computer to rendering the animation! 

 In addition to the new computer, we can hire a sound engineer full time! Helping us create better foley, music, and audio tracks for the cartoon! Speeding up our process. Help us build our team! 

In addition to all of the above, we will hire a second animator and get more episodes made! We can also hire union actors to deliver stronger voice work and a variety of characters!

Risks and challenges

Our biggest challenge will be time. Animation takes time, and ensuring that each scene looks and feels the best it can be and makes our viewers laugh is our main priority. We will be on a very tight production schedule. 5 weeks. 3 episodes. It's ambitious, but its doable. Our budget is crucial to that schedule. We've done as much prep for this project as we can with the very limited resources that we both have. Once our project is successfully funded production will start October 1st.

This is a passion project so Pat and I may have to take work if it's offered (we work as camera operators and production assistants) which could delay production. However we are both extremely committed to our schedule and will do what it takes to stick to it, especially if we have all the resources we need from this campaign.

Money is always THE challenge. I had the opportunity to meet Spike Lee when I was in college and I asked him what his biggest challenge was as a film maker. He laughed and said calmly, "money" as if I should have known better than to ask. Then he walked away and I never saw him again. Moral of the story, I'm a firm believer that great things come from small budgets, and this project will be a prime example of that formula once completed.

We will be sure to keep our funders updated on the progress via our Kickstarter, Facebook, Instagram, and email!
