About

Hi, we're Monitogo Studios. You might remember us from that big stop motion brickfilm we made called "Bound" that was released in 2015. It was in no small part funded from an awesome Kickstarter campaign!

You've been asking, we want to deliver. So here's a new project for you - Atlas, an incredibly beautiful, poignant short film about the greatest of loves - and sacrifice. This will also be Lego©  brick stop motion. We are going to bring the full force of 87 combined years studying and making film and the experience of multiple projects to this one work. While the story is everything, we'll also bring you top notch production value.

Speaking of story, Atlas centers on a father, son, and uncle who work at a railroad drawbridge control center set in the 1930's. A train is running ahead of schedule and a damaged rail line promises catastrophic results. With inability to contact the train en route, the three must make a critical and costly decision in a desperate move to save it.

So here's the problem: film is expensive. I have a steady job, but it doesn't cover film production costs! If you want to see Atlas become a reality, you can help us out. >>>

After backing, tell your friends. The more eyes we get on this, the better chance you get Atlas.

Risks and challenges

We could be attacked by mutant garden gnomes; there's a real possibility of that. Otherwise we know what we're doing (more than 87 combined years in the industry). We've managed numerous projects before and we have successfully delivered on a Kickstarter campaign. There could be unforeseen delays in the production timeline or significant hardware failure. As to the former, we have a lot of data to go off of for estimating production output. To the latter - if a computer blows up we have two. If a camera blows up we have two. Barring an emergency, this project will be completed in time for reward delivery.
