'Dawgtown' on Kickstarter - October 20 2013

There's a crowdfunding campaign in progress on Kickstarter for an animated feature in progress. It's called "Dawgtown" and the creators are attempting to raise $75,000 by October 20 2013 to fund the pre-production of the film and position themselves for moving the project to the next level.

Dawgtown is being produced by Off Center Pictures of Jacksonville, Florida. The story concerns a young Pitbull named Max who is taken from his owner and thrown into the brutal world of underground dog fighting. As a competitor in the most well-funded pit-fighting organization in the world, he becomes a sign of hope to the others, and must lead them in a dangerous fight for freedom.

It’s 'Gladiator' meets 'Animal Farm' as director Justin Murphy and his crew immerse themselves in the growing wave of independent content in animation.

Check out the video below and consider supporting Dawgtown by following the link below and making a pledge. There's many reward levels for those participating in the project. A portion of this fundraising effort will go towards Pitbull rescue organization efforts.

I love the idea! Can't wait to see it. Love the fluidity in the animation as well as the dark themes and colors.

Spot on about kid friendly animated projects.
There needs to be more "adult themed" animated films out there.

I'm currently working on a webcomic with cartoon cats but the themes will be dealing with police corruption, violence, violence against women and smoking.

If at first you don't succeed keep on dawgin' until ya do!

The Dawgtown campaign on Kickstarter had a very ambitious goal and didn't work out.

But Dawgtown is back again on Indiegogo with a more realistic funding level and they're looking good for reaching it!

Campaign is on until December 15 2013.

Here's the link to their revived funding effort along with their promotional video...
