BRAND NEW REWARD - PRESIDENT RUMP SHIRTS!!!!

 THIS IS OUR SHOW:

Humanity has been wiped out. Animals rule the earth this time around. History seems to be repeating itself.

Format & Message

Political Humor is as American as G.I. Joe, and in a world where Governments are created of Animals, by Animals and for Animals, anything is possible.

It is our intention to produce the show as a 2D animated series, so we can act on current events quickly. Please know that we are Patriotic Americans with a genuine respect for our institutions. Our show isn’t meant to be mean spirited or angry. It is no secret that many people aren’t happy with Donald Trump. Instead of building up anger or screaming at the moon, we want this show to poke fun at stereotypes and “burn” the heck out of the injustices we find. Left, Right and Center…no one is off limits, not even ourselves.

BRAND NEW REWARD - PRESIDENT RUMP HATS!!!

And now, Rump on Russia...

 $25,000 - 11 Minute Pilot Episode

Meeting this initial goal, we will be able to produce our first full 11 minute animated episode of A Fowl American. The episode will be available to all backers, and we will take the episode along with several other pitch ready materials we've created to Television Networks in the hopes of selling the show as an on-going series.

Stretch Goal 1: A Second 11 Minute Episode (unlocked when we reach a campaign total of $45,000!)

Where does the money go?

As you probably already know, creating a professionally animated series is fairly expensive. A bulk of the money raised goes directly to the animation costs, this is by far the most complex and time consuming aspect of creating our show. Additionally, music, such as our theme song, as well as thematic music throughout the episodes will have to be written and produced. Other miscellanous costs go into writing, storyboarding, animatics, video editing, and overall production... and let's not forget Uncle Sam, he's going to want his piece of the pie in taxes.

Rewards available to backers are as follows (See reward levels for more info):

  • An HD Download of the Pilot episode of 'A Fowl American'
  • PDF of Storyboards and Original Character Designs
  • Signed Pilot Episode Script
  • Comic Book by the show's creators. (Digital - PDF)
  • Comic Book by the show's creators. (IN PRINT)
  • Bumper Sticker
