About this project
REDNECK NINJAS is about Granny Knech, protector of the town called Folksville. This is not like Jeff Foxworthy's "You might be a redneck, if…" or Larry the Cable Guy's working class comedy.
Folksville is to the "right" or conservative, the outside world to the "left or liberal, and Granny Knech right down the middle where ninjas kick butt and women are awesome. But this isn't a show about politics. It's action/comedy with B-Cinema appeal.
There are heroes like Granny, Miko Nippon, Miss Chicken, Dufus T. Dog, Clyde, Cleatus, and Larry Lobo…
And there are villains like the Cat Lady, Nefertiti, Butch, Sheila T. Buffbird, the Gamewarden, Fat Back, Fred the Robot Monkey, the General, and the Everliving.
Want to learn more? See a sample of REDNECK NINJAS shorts to get a feel for the style? Play a kickbutt Flash video game? Then click on this illustration.
My dream is to produce 60 sec animated shorts about the knowledge that Granny Knech passes on to her family. These lessons are secretly encoded into the ingredients in the pages of Granny's Recipe Book.
However, Animation is very expensive because many artists are needed to Illustrate, Color, Light, Special Effects, Background, and Composite the individual assets into each frame; it's the most expensive medium to produce in entertainment. Flash Animation is less expensive, but it still cost $10K to produce at least one short.
I'm asking you to pledge now to bring them to life, and you'll receive "Rurally Powerful, Kung Fu Cool" entertainment with an awesome REDNECK NINJAS reward.
UniquePublications LLC (UP LLC) utilizes freelance employees to produce UNIQUE Entertainment. UP LLC and I will create the scripts, voice over performances, music, and audio engineering.
Powerhouse Animation will be our animation specialist for the campaign. Their team of amazing artists will bring to life the animated shorts.
Shinbone Creative will help us produce beautiful hand-painted resin figurines of the indomitable Granny Knech. Standing an imposing 6 inches tall, and armed with twin frying pans, Granny will keep your workspace or home free of those furshlugginer baddies. Each figure is lovingly hand crafted in the US of A and made with cold-cast resin.
The 60 sec action/comedy shorts will be distributed via my YouTube Channel, used to showcase UP LLC's animated productions.
Additionally, as we are part of the Channel Frederator Network of animators, we have direct access to their YouTube and Social Media professionals. They help YouTube cartoon content creators find their fans.
REDNECK NINJAS will be promoted via multiple Social Media outlets, including Buzzfeed, Newgrounds, Reddit, Google+, Facebook, and Twitter.
By using both YouTube and Social Media “Best Practices” Techniques that we've learned by being part of the Channel Frederator Network of animation professionals, we will bring Granny Knech and Folksville to folks around the world.
Pledge now and receive a "Rurally Powerful, Kung Fu Cool" reward for your support!
Risks and challenges
Why is the campaign goal listed at $1 when animation costs so much?
A guy told me that this idea wouldn't work. Every $1 proves him wrong, but if we cannot raise $10K the campaign will be canceled before it ends on 8/25/14, all pledges will be rescinded, and no fees will be accrued.
Please share with friends and family, and help Granny protect Folksville.
With your support failure is impossible.
