ANIMATION STRETCH GOAL INFO!!!
We made it to our initial goal of $5000! THANK YOU!
Now... here's an update on where we are at:
Our initial goal was to cover the cost of getting a "Short" version of the show. Enough to set everything in motion.
To be clear, all of the money (I mean ALL... 100%) collected from this Kickstarter goes to pay our animator, Lance Myers. He is incredible and he is worth it!
With our style of animation, it costs us about $1,300 per minute (roughly). We keep it very streamlined and efficient! A mainstream animation studio can charge $30,000 PER MINUTE to produce a show. Our animator Lance is not charging his normal professional rate, and is helping us get this thing made, too.
SO: every $1300 we can raise beyond that $5,000 will help us add ANOTHER MINUTE of That Monster Show (roughly).
So please, let's keep going and promoting this show. I believe in this project and think we have a great team in place!
Onward, and THANK YOU!
Writer / Director
THAT MONSTER SHOW is an Adult-Swim-style animated television pilot, in that lighthearted horror style of Nightmare Before Christmas, Beetlejuice, and Haunted Mansion.
FIVE MONSTERS from another dimension are banished to their version of Hell: FLORIDA!
Can they build a machine that will re-open the portal, and return them to their home world?
Florida can be a dangerous place for anyone -- but a land of sunshine, golf courses, and beaches is the last place our Monsters want to be.
THE VOICE ACTORS
As always, the art and animation is brought to you by my friend Lance Myers.
My goal is to raise $5,000 to pay for the animation. We’re going to focus on producing a kick-ass 3-minute short, with the main scenes that set up the show. But if we can make the STRETCH GOAL of $15K, we’ll do the full 12-minute pilot episode, including all the scenes. All of that money will go directly to the cost of animation.
I’ve learned a lot from my experience writing and directing The Oracle of Outer Space, and producing my radio drama Barbarian Burger!
This Monster project is my best, solid, dramatic, animated comedy writing. I’ve got a great 3-act story, a surprise antagonist, and I really wanna bring these characters to life.
I think a lot of other people will be into it, too.
Support this creepy, trans-dimensional adventure here on Kickstarter, and let’s get it made.
