**UPDATE** Mink Stole will be playing Mrs. Tottifot!!! **
We have a vision. A vision of a world where bug babies and regular babies can live in peace together. Ever since director Rebecca Doppelt first laid eyes on the script for the original play written by Dan Spurgeon, she could see the vision of this world. And that vision is our short indie film, "Bugbaby".
"Bugbaby" is about John and Stacy, a young couple whose newborn child looks and acts like a bug. It is territorial, vicious, and eats nothing but red meat. At a loss for how to take care of their unique child, the couple calls child services, so they can try and place the baby with parents who are more... capable. The agency sends Mrs. Tottifot, a horrible witch of a woman, who sees how the bugbaby, Sammy, is being treated and immediately threatens to call the police. Mrs. Tottifot pushes past the pleading John and Stacy into Sammy's room, but no sooner has she began her search for the little guy, than he attacks her and tears off her head. John and Stacy are shocked, but soon realize their good fortune. Sammy saved them from Mrs. Tottifot and her threats of persecution! John and Stacy decide to keep their bundle of joy so they can feed it all the people they don't like.
We are shooting the film in HD and all money raised will go towards the production of "Bugbaby". We have a crew full of professionals who are all working for free in order to make the film happen, because they've all read the script and know that it is totally twisted and awesome.
We are currently aiming to shoot the last weekend in February in Los Angeles, and that's why we're allowing only 28 days of fundraising time. Please help us meet our goal of $7,000! $7,000 is the lowest amount we need to raise in order to complete "Bugbaby", but if we are able to raise $9,000+, we're going to be able to do all sorts of super cool effects that will blow your mind.
Mink Stole will be playing the role of Mrs. Tottifot!! We are huge fans of hers and are so excited to be working with her!
You know you want to be a part of this hilarious, creepy, and effed up little short film! We have great rewards, so please help us make "Bugbaby" come alive!!
