Charlie Kaufman and Dan Harmon Want To Make Us a Stop-Motion Movie, We Just Have To Pay for It

July 12, 2012


Both recently losing their respective jobs making good things, Charlie Kaufman and Community creator Dan Harmon are now combining convoluted, self-aware narrative forces to make something else that sounds pretty good. So pay them to do that right now.

Here's how it works: go to this Kickstarter page and give some money. If/when the project reaches $200k, production is guaranteed on a stop-motion-animated film called Anomalisa, from a script by Charlie Kaufman said to be "about a man crippled by the mundanity of his life" (BUT I BET IT'S ABOUT MORE THAN THAT). The 40-minute film will be produced at Starburns Industries with Dan Harmon executive producing alongside Moral Orel-creator/Starburns Dino Stamatopoulos, stop-motion Community director Duke Johnson, and producer Rosa Tran. Donations of various dollar amounts get you special prizes like digital downloads, posters, stop-motion puppets, and/or a 20-minute Skype conversation with whichever executive producer you most want to make uncomfortable with Community trivia.

Below is a Starburns Industries-produced video to get you interested, as if you aren't already. You are, right? Otherwise, I don't know what to tell you. You're irredeemable.
