Washington Filmworks (WF) is pleased to announce the launch of the Kickstarter campaign for Rocketmen, a madcap serial adventure that recently premiered its pilot episode to a packed house as part of Seattle’s July 2013 First Thursday. WF is proud to include the webseries as part of the inaugural Innovation Cycle of the Filmworks Innovation Lab. The Lab is a groundbreaking new program that offers funding assistance to Washington filmmakers and filmmakers using emerging technologies.
Part drama and discussion of “jobs programs,” part comedy, and certainly a deranged adventure, Rocketmen features a host of Seattle performers, with animated interludes by Animator/Director Webster Crowell. Rocketmen were intended to combat the threats of tomorrow. If those threats never arrive, what purpose will they serve? Who do they save now? Rocketmen want to know: are you in peril?
Rocketmen the webseries has until August 10 to raise $30,000 through their Kickstarter campaign. There are all sorts of fun benefits to those who pledge to back the project. If you’d like to help them save the world you can learn more about the webseries and see some sneak peek video on their campaign page.
