The Punky Pets Goal

We are seeking financing for our next animated short film Punky Pets “Down On The Bayou.” This film, like others we’ve made, will be a short version of a larger piece. Our goal is to use our films to get our own animated series. We’ve described the concept, the characters and outlined the first season’s episodes in our Series Bible. We’ve already produced animated music videos and two short films prior to this one; the most recent one “Playing Party Politics” was screened at The Short Film Corner at the Cannes Film Festival. We are currently in negotiations with an international distribution company to distribute our second short film worldwide. We have worked for over five years towards developing this idea into a possible franchise but we need your help to continue our dream.


The Punky Pets Want You

Join our team and make history! We are asking for $40,000 to finance our short film. First, the production money will pay for drawing storyboards, creating artwork, producing the animation and covering expenses for casting and recording the actor’s voices. Second, the money will also be used for Post-Production expense like editing, recording the original music, licensing other music, sound effects editing and mixing the final soundtrack. Third, the remaining funds will be used for film festivals, marketing expenses such as key artwork, social media costs and some distribution expenses.

The Punky Pets Work Hard

We wouldn’t dream of asking for your money if we hadn’t already proven ourselves with our other short films and music videos. Our latest project “Down On The Bayou” is only a screenplay and a set of storyboards right now, but we promise it will be our most ambitious project to date! We need to make this film because we feel it will fully represent what our franchise can be! We’ve been working towards this film for over five years. It won’t be easy, but we’ve been through some tough times in the past, and have pushed through it. It wasn’t easy to get a booth at Comic-con, or travel across the country with the Vans Warped Tour. We’ve come back from many film festivals empty handed. However, our recent trip to The Cannes Film Festival lead to a distribution deal for Playing Party Politics. “The harder we work, the luckier we get.” We’re persistent, patient, maybe even obsessed, but that’s what it takes. We can do it!
