Yes, it's finally happened! One of Tech Beevers favourite series is getting the movie treatment.
They've done it! The guys have hit the incredible $267,591 mark, and there's still 4 days to go, so if they manage to hit $275,000 they'll make a 35-minute movie!
The guys have reached
The awesome creators of Dick Figures, Ed Skudder and Zack Keller have started a campain on Kickstarter (the same place legendary writer Tim Schafer got his latest game Double Fine Adventure funded, raising a whopping $3,336,371 over it's $400,000 goal), in which you (and us) can help fund the project. $250,000 will get a half hour animated adventure, $500,000 will get double that, and $700,000 will get us the much anticiapted movie. It may sound a lot, but Dick Figures is the most popular animated show on YouTube with over 120,000,000 total views, 11,000,000 new views a month and over a million subscribers, if we just pitch in 15 measley dollars (or around £10 here in the UK, but hey, throw 'em an even £20!), then the movie could actually happen. Pretty easy, right?
The beauty of this, is you get to be a part of something truely awesome, with the guys taking you through the whole process, from what they're eating, what it takes to get Red and Blue up and going, a heap of ridiculously awesome stuff, and of course, that warm fuzzy feeling you'll get when you know that YOU made this happen.
|Look at those face, give them your money|
