DAWGTOWN is a hand-drawn, traditionally animated film for teens and adults (much like classics 'Watership Down' and 'The Plague Dogs') and features the story of a young Pitbull and his struggle to escape from the world's largest underground dog-fighting organization.  It's 'Gladiator' meets 'The Shawshank Redemption'.

DAWGTOWN began as my Master's Thesis in college in 2012 and have put 4 years and thousands of dollars into the film, hiring animators from all over the world, and even hiring voice talents JASON BEGHE (star of NBC's Chicago PD), STACEY DASH (Clueless) and Former World Heavyweight Champion GEORGE FOREMAN.

The entire movie has been story-boarded and edited. I am now in the process of replacing the story-board shots with finished animation and backgrounds.  Of course this costs money, and your support will help keep me and my animators working.

As a supporter, you will have access to artwork, shots and even full scenes that will not be posted publicly while the film is in production.  You will also have access to behind-the-scenes videos that provide an inside look at the process of how an animated feature is created, as well as interviews with the artists and voice talent.

If you love animation, and believe that independent voices need to be heard, then this project is for you!

Goals
$106 of $250 per month
Production has begun on the Dawgtown Teaser.  When complete, this will be a fully-animated (color, effects and all) 2-minute video to use as a sales pitch to attract new investors to the project. Original music and sound effects will be recorded as well.  When finished, it will look and sound like any Hollywood trailer you would see in a movie theater.
