my name is mc chris i'm involved with the shows you see on adult swim. i put out rap records and tour like crazy. i'm from the suburbs of Chicago I studied drawing at the School of the Institute of Chicago and screenwriting at the Tisch School at NYU. I worked at Adult Swim for five years. I've always been behind the scenes but i've never had a chance to do something of my own.
Now I'm asking my fans to support me upfront so that i can make a cartoon. they have been waiting for this since Adult Swim and mc chris came into existence in 2001. The production will be split into three segments of five minutes, each for 50,000 dollars. So it will be a long haul before we're done, but if we all put some effort into it then maybe we can see something by Christmas. The schedule will become clear as we start to get our hands dirty.
I will be keeping the backers more than informed while we're in production. There will be a website this summer detailing each phase with all the stuff i would have liked to have seen when i was young animation geek: blogs, clips, and videos about the process.
Titmouse will be making the cartoon. They make all the shows you love on Adult Swim: Venture Brothers, Super Jail, Metalocalypse. I've gone after the best of the best in my opinion and i'm confident they will deliver a top rate toon.
I will be busy fundraising and planning the second episode as well as finishing and promoting race wars this fall, communicating on the road with Titmouse via skype. :) There will be lots to do but like I said this dream will come true if we put the effort in.
Thanks again to all the loyal fans that have been waiting for this specific opportunity to help support an mc chris cartoon. we've all been waiting for this and now it's up to us to make it a reality. This is going to change the way cartoons are made and keep them alive as companies lose interest in them. Thanks again!
