About this project
In the live action Moot Movie, a childhood tragedy drives Mattox Durant to launch his own magazine to expose a supernatural underworld.
While Moot Movie has been shot and edited, it still needs many post production elements, such as numerous visual effects, original music composition, audio mixing, film festival promotion, and the creation of all the cool rewards for this campaign.
We are looking to you Kickstarters to help finish the film and continue to develop the Moot sci-fi story-world. Many stretch rewards are planned for backers.
Please know that your pledge will not be processed until after our end date and only if we reach our goal. We get nothing if our goal is not met. Your support means the world to us.
Do you believe there will be some sort of Apocalypse on our Kickstarter end date: 12-21-2012? Perhaps a doomsday brought on by alien beings set on mutating the human race?
Let us assure you, no matter what you may have heard, you have nothing to fear. You can pledge now, because the MOOT Monster will protect you.
Within the fictional world of the Moot Movie, Mattox Durant has conceived of the MOOT Monster as his magazine’s mascot.
As the creators of the Moot World, we have brought both the Moot Magazine and the Moot Monster into reality for you to enjoy as rewards during this Kickstarter campaign.

MOOT MAGAZINE extends the supernatural world of the movie with digitally illustrated sci-fi, mystery, and adventure stories that are told with the humor of “The Onion” and the escapism of a 1950’s pulp magazine. Every page is a visually immersive experience allowing the reader to escape into a universe of mind-bending entertainment. Moot Magazine was received with tremendous enthusiasm at Wondercon in San Francisco and at the Anaheim ComicCon.

Why Do Words Fly From Our Mouthes?
Because we are mooters. Join us in our mooting. See the video below where Captain Mooter (aka Ryan Nellis) is advocating his case for Moot. If you like to make videos or any kind of animation, you can submit your own mooting video to our Moot Contest at MootMagMovie.com. Check out the details.
Risks and challenges
While there is nothing easy about a project like MOOT, everything is possible. For years we have dedicated ourselves to MOOT’s success. With massive man-hours needed to complete the detailed frame-by-frame work, we are absolutely committed to delivering what we’ve promised in this Kickstarter campaign.
A current challenge has been for manufacturers of custom flash drives to meet our design specifications for the teeth of the Moot Monster. Although the MOOT shape is easy to fabricate around the USB Drive, we are still working with manufacturers on prototypes that meet our high design standards. While we are not sure how many teeth the monster will have, we can promise a reliable flash drive like no other, with all of its exclusive content.
We thank Kickstarter for providing this platform and we thank you backers for making this dream a reality for all involved. As you saw in the video we are poised with a talented crew of young digital media artists, ready to execute the work needed on the Moot Movie. We also have key industry professionals that will be joining our team. Your support will provide a paid opportunity for them all.
Join us for endless hours of mooterific fun. And please SHARE with your family and friends. There is much more planned for this campaign and beyond, as MOOT continues to tell its amazing stories well into the future.
And don't forget, your support will also free Dyllen from her computer and… help the MOOT Monster save the human race. So pledge now, before all ends on 12-21-2012.
