When I saw the reel above two years ago, I couldn’t contain my excitement. A CG zombie action/horror/comedy based on Eric Powell’s comic, and developed in partnership with David Fincher? I was instantly sold.
But Hollywood didn’t feel the same way: Blur’s animated feature The Goon never got picked up for production.
So instead, Blur Studio has turned to the fans and the general public for support, launching a Kickstarter campaign through which you can support the film. That’s right: you can help bring The Goon to the big screen!
Blur is looking for $400,000 to create a full-length story reel for the movie: a rough edit of the storyboards together with music and sound effects.
Whether you contribute $10 or $1,000 – or even $10,000 – it all helps to get The Goon made. Plus, there are the usual range of nifty Kickstarter incentives available. Let’s make this happen.
