The Movie Maniacs is just two guys in a bedroom in North London who love all things film, TV & nerd culture in general. We have list of ideas longer than the great wall of China but consolidating them down from concepts to viable productions is hard and lengthy work. We start so many projects and have to leave them in the dust because we cant manage a quick turn around.

Having 9-5 jobs (often longer shifts), long distance relationships and one child who lives 150 miles away doesn't add up to a lot of spare time at the weekend but we try our hardest to get stuff done. However, some times it's just not enough and maybe you can help? With your support we'd love to turn all those scrappy scripts written in email drafts into finished animations that will make you laugh and feel good!

At the moment we have one loud, clunky steam punk machine of a computer that's just about decent enough for us to run After Effects which anyone who animates will know After Effects is a slow process when it comes to animating at the best of times. We have a Photoshop bearing artifact of a laptop that often crashes and camera equipment that we borrow from a local college when it's not being used. We need your help to hopefully invest in some more equipment that isn't decades out of date. Also we would love to learn Flash Player to increase the work flow and would need to fund this new adventure. 

Embarrassingly enough I actually draw all of my sketches on paper normally stolen from the printer at work, take a photo on my iPhone and email it to myself to start editing in Photoshop. I was recently told this to a professional animator and she was literally lost for words.

Hopefully you like our stuff and would be kind enough to donate towards our plans of our global animation domination of the internet!

Thank you,
Simon Jago and Ryan Casey

We actually started off as a demo-sitcom and are dream would be to return to situation comedy. We've got amazing ideas for various web series but unfortunately we are tied down to our 9-5 jobs. With your support we could go full time on breathing life into our creations and turning ideas into animated sitcoms.
