• Dan Harmon, Charlie Kaufman want $200,000 to fund animated movie

    Dan Harmon, no doubt, has some time on his hands after being forced out of his Community job. That is, unless he can get funding to executive-produce a stop-motion animated film, which absolutely looks to be worth your donations.

    Anomalisa, written by Charlie Kaufman (Being John Malkovich, Adaptation) and produced by Starburns Industries, is planned as a 40-minute film about “a man crippled by the mundanity of his life.” The team has set up a Kickstarter in order to raise their ideal budget of $200,000. They had this to say about the film:

    “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.” Official Kickstarter video pitch is below.

    In addition to being able to say you helped fund what is sure to be an amazing movie, there are some other perks for those who donate. For a full list of the perks and, more importantly, to donate to the project, head over to the Kickstarter page now.
