Apparently this started yesterday. I'm a big fan of Ralph, a great director of smart and mature animated films for adults that broke a lot of ground for animation and nerd fandom in general, made a lot of great films with artistic and political relevance, but got treated pretty badly by the industry in the last part of his career. I don't know much about this film, the Last Days of Coney Island, the page below describes it as, "an animated cop, mafia, horror movie set in the 1960s in Coney Island, with political overtones both realistic and outrageous." (Sounds awesome to me! You can read more on the production below. I love the idea that the fantasy illustrator from Wizards would be working on this!). However, I know he was making it some time ago and had to quit due to running out of funds to finish it. This Kickstareter will give him the budget to actually finish and release the film to the public. Definitely want to see another film by him and I think he deserves a more complete oeuvre, so please pledge something even if it's just a few bucks. It's only bee open for a day so far, and it looks like it's doing pretty good!

Edit: The Video in the Kickstarter link has a tiny bit of nuidty from the film Coonskin (love that movie XD). Nothing major, but I thought I would add a warning anyways.

Thanks for the info.

I hope Bakshi is gonna get loads of money to finish his film. Hopefully, I'll be able to contribute myself.

His works are often rebellious, provocative and, most of all, very funny and entertaining. Too bad many of his films didn't get the success they could and should've got.

Good news! Thanks to the people who got the idea of Kickstarter in the first place. This helped David Lynch fund one of hi movies, and now, it helped Bakshi do just the same. smile.gif

There has also been some talk about him making a Wizards 2 (and possibly 3 recently). Hopefully, he won't need Kickstarter to make that however.

Very excited to see the short. Hopefully, the rest of them that are part of this film get funded as well!
