About this project

Animation should not be only for kids. Animation should not be only fairy tales and gags.

I want to get a small group of talented professional animators and designers to help me achieve something off the beaten path...

A Feature Length Animated Film Noir Musical with a contemporary twist.
Animation and music melded into edge of your seat entertainment.

Together we'll get started to create character and production design elements; an animatic (storyboard reel synced to the soundtrack); and some selected animation scenes as a show piece in order to get funding to complete this unique feature film.

BROADWAY MELODIES: A ROCK & ROLL MYSTERY MUSICAL

The year is 1984.
Not George Orwell's 1984.
Not your 1984.
...but the Fat Man's 1984!

Meet Terry Malloy.
...An ex-actor turned private eye. Former decorated Marine and Viet Nam vet.
Meet Anneke Dime.
...A girl in trouble. A girl whose father is in trouble. A girl who is nothing but trouble.
Meet Lt. Ralph Getz.
...NYC cop. Head of Detectives. Got a bug up his ass for Terry Malloy.
Meet Eddie Price.
...A snitch. A stoolie. A stooge.
Meet the Fat Man.
...An evil concoction of all the fat men you've ever known.
...The contemptuousness of Sidney Greenstreet.
...The smugness of Charles Laughton.
...The slovenly intellectual terror of Orson Wells.

Written by Greg Johnson
Music and Lyrics by Greg Stier
Produced and Directed by two time Emmy® winning director Russell Calabrese
Adapted by Russell Calabrese and Ray Deter
