The Makeshift Theatre Brigade

So, here's the "pitch": A man, a clone, a robot, a three-eyed alien, another alien, a bartender and a guy that never speaks time travel from a bar...get it? Nah, I didn't think you would. It's not one of those jokes. Though that would be an insane joke to tell...hmmm. I digress. I want to make a cartoon. The basic idea is the misadventures of a band of misfits. Gary, an idiot cloned man with the intellect of a child. Ant, the asshole fat fella with a grudge against...everything. Roy, a well educated three-eyed alien/human. Lester is a necrophiliac. Not for dead robots but, people, because dead robots would just be weird. A bartender named Vance who is gay, though, not flamboyantly so and of course a man that wears a trucker hat that never speaks...ever.

I plan to make an animated web series, which will be formatted to run on television as well, with a 15 minute run time per episode. It's going to be a lot of work, as I will be doing the bulk of the work myself. As far as the writing is concerned...well, there are story arcs and a show bible to conform to. If you're not familiar with a show bible, it's more for continuity and consistency. It explains the rules of how the character's time travel, why the bar exists, but, doesn't exist, why there are famous dead people wandering through the bar at times and especially, why they end up with Jesus Christ's body in their basement...eventually. It's so, the show doesn't start violating it's own rules...so to speak.

It will be geared toward the adult crowd. Not porno adult, though there will be porno references, just not porno drawing. Think, Simpsons, Family Guy, Futurama adult stuff. There's cursing and pop culture references galore. I have character outlines and even model sheets. for the characters.

Let me know if you are interested. I really would like to expedite the process. I am aching to get started. I have voice talent lined up, I have story ideas mapped out...I need words, damnit! Funny fuckin' words! I'm going to post what I have shortly, well, maybe. If enough people get interested of course. If not, then, I'll work on alone...desolate and alone...forever wishing that someone...witty...would save my poor pathetic excuse for a rambling...endlessly perpetuating...story...line.

Anyway, if you're interested, let me know. Here's my stats!...Okay, well, not stats...a sample of my writing. I'm not sure if this will link properly, so, if not...copy, paste.

I would really like to get a writing group going on it. I'm guessing...some potentially great ideas might come out of it. It really sucks that hardly anyone shows up on these forums anymore. It's ridiculous.

Hmmm...Perhaps there will be people here during the week.

I like the idea. The bar could be like one of those new Irish pubs or something that are cropping up all over in college towns. Whaddya think?

i.e. 1st webisode :

The Nature of Discourse:
Where a philathropic ponzi scheme inventor stumbles in and gets hammered back into OXFORD, U.K. circa-1850 where he meets up with the ghost of Sir Francis Bacon.
(only use dead guys' names-the live ones can sue)
He learns the true meaning of paucity and really can't get over the set of the play "Sweeny Todd"

I'm working on putting together what I have and starting the project up. I have a lot of ideas already and have done a lot of artwork for it as well.
