About

 Our goal is to make The Mueller Report into an entertaining and accurate animation series 

Think Schoolhouse Rock for Adults. An essential goal of our project is to remain objective in our presentation of the report’s findings. To ensure we remain objective, we have a development team composed of honest people of good will from a diversity of political perspectives. 

Erick and Mo met as graduate students at Pepperdine University. Each is profoundly patriotic and shares a strong concern for the current condition of the American political discourse. In pursuing this project, their goal is to contribute toward a move back to honest civil discussions grounded in objective facts without spin, lies, and distortions.

Erick is a polymath and veteran Marine Corps Officer who served from Antarctica to Afghanistan. Among his awards, he is a recipient of the Marine Corps Commendation Medal and Combat Action Ribbon. Erick has a Bachelor of Science in Liberal Arts and a Master of Business Administration from Graziadio Business School at Pepperdine University.

Mo is the founder of Brain Zoo Studios. He is an Emmy® award-winning and Academy Award Selected, Creative Executive. Fluent in all forms of animated media production, including feature films, television, commercials, mobile app development, real-time video game development, marketing, and live-action mixed-media events. Mo has an undergraduate degree in Design from the prestigious Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, and a Master of Business Administration from Graziadio Business School at Pepperdine University.

Established in 1995, Brain Zoo Studios is an Academy Award selected, Emmy® Award-winning production company based in Los Angeles, California. You may have seen the company’s animation on Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy TV Series, Ultimate Spiderman TV Series, Ironman Captain America Heroes United, Ironman Hulk Heroes United; Lego Star Wars and Indiana Jones; and Disney Doorables Animated Series. 

Additionally, Brain Zoo Studios animation has appeared in Warner Brothers Mortal Kombat 11, 2K Games Borderlands II and III, Activision/Blizzard Call of Duty Black Ops 4 and Gears of War.

Brain Zoo’s Animation Team are professionals with a great dynamic and sense of humor who are technically and artistically talented. It is a highly experienced team at producing animated feature films, TV series, TV commercials, and game cinematics. Like America, the Brain Zoo Animation Team is a diverse group comprising animators from varied political perspectives, ethnicities, races, genders, and religions.

The mission of our writing team is to produce vignettes that are factual and intellectually honest, which present the information in the report in a way that is very entertaining, fun, and easy to understand.

We are delighted that John Di Domenico has agreed to be the voice of Trump for this project. He is an Emmy® Nominated, Actor, Writer & Comedian; he is currently best known for his award-winning Donald Trump impersonation. John has been performing Trump since 2004 and is the Trump for Conan O’Brien, Slate’s Trumpcast, Chelsea Handler, TBS’ The  Heckler, Fox News Redeye, Planet America, Fox & Friends, Randy Rainbow, Blaze Network, and many more outlets. 

John has appeared as Trump in four feature films and the 13-episode Canadian Comedy Awards Winning web series “You’ve Got Trumped,” his Amazon Prime comedy show “Fake News: A Trump Story” and is the winner of ABC’s The View’s National Trump Contest and The Laugh Factory’s International Trump Competition.

Given the importance of this project, we are certain other veteran voice actors will join the project as it builds momentum. You can help by sharing this project on social media and by recommending your favorite voice actors for characters in our series.

The goal of this project is to create a pilot episode of a ten-episode mini-series explaining the findings of The Mueller Report. Once we achieve our goal for the pilot episode, we will generate stretch goals to fund the entire series. We intend to use funds we receive beyond our stretch goal of nine additional episodes to increase our speed of production and add more scenes as portions of the report are unredacted.

Episode One/Pilot funding goal is $1,046,874.

Each additional 30-minute episode is $999,784.

If you have the means, please contribute to our project.

Risks and challenges

We don’t anticipate any significant challenges. However, if we run into delays or significant challenges will notify our supporters right away.
