This week we are pulling back the curtains on our first major video project for Follow Networks.
Today, we are launching a Kickstarter project to fund the launch of Horrible Prequels, an animated parody series about some of your favorite movies, your favorite movie characters, and your favorite movie scenes. We have been working hard to get this project ready for public consumption, and now we need your help.
First, let me tell you a little about the creation of Horrible Prequels.
The concept was created by me, Follow Networks Founder Chad Ettelbrick. The concept was this. What happened before your favorite movies? What molded your favorite characters? What happened right before your favorite film scenes. I took the idea first to my MadChat cohost Matt Etter. He helped me to flesh out some of the ideas and build the stories behind the episodes. From there I wrote the scripts for our first six episodes. After finishing the final script, I took the scripts to frequent MadChat collaborator and comedic-talker Mark Blessing. He helped to put the final touches on the story that lead me to completing the final drafts of the scripts.
From there, I began the search for the perfect animator, who I found in Chicago. His name is Patrick. You can get a look at the first still image from the animation process at the Follow Networks Facebook Page.
So about that help. We are launching our Kickstarter project today. With your help, and your dollars, we can bring Horrible Prequels to your computer screen much faster than we could on our own. It will also help us spread the word on what we can do. And what we are going to do in the future. This is the first project that we are running. It is not the last.
Click Me. Please. I’m Horrible Prequels.
I can’t wait for you to see Horrible Prequels. Check out this new episode of MadChat for more information. And Fun. Thanks.
