Remember back when filmmakers would have to bend over backwards, jump through hoops, and replace intelligent content with stupid easily-palatable inanity in order to get a film funded? But then someone on the internet thought “Hey, why not get a bunch of nerds to just fund the movie themselves? That way, we don’t have to decide between making a terrible, neutered version of our movie or no movie at all!” Well, it worked. It worked so damn well. Now, Charlie Kaufman (who happens to be responsible for the best movie ever, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) and Dan Harmon (COMMUNITY) have joined with Dino Stamatopoulos (Moral Orel, Mary Shelley’s Frankenhole) to create a stop-motion movie, that you can help fund on Kickstarter right now!
Anomalisa is a stop-motion animated film written by Charlie Kaufman (Being John Malkovich, Adaptation, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind). The film is about a man crippled by the mundanity of his life. The film will be approximately 40 minutes in length. Our goal is to produce this unique and beautiful film outside of the typical Hollywood studio system where we believe that you, the audience, would never be allowed to enjoy this brilliant work the way it was originally conceived. We’ve been working in the television and movie industry for years and we just want to make something ourselves. Something pure. Something beautiful. So, please pledge as much as you can and be a part of this very special project!
