After nearly 30 years of enchanting audiences all over the world with breathtaking animation and groundbreaking films, Studio Ghibli’s animation department will be taking a hiatus from making future productions.
After crowd-funding over $300,000 and 3 months of intense pre-production planning, Wong Fu has finally announced the start of their principal photography and revealed the principal cast for their first feature film.
Love horror films? Paranoid that one day you’ll be murdered by a serial killer? Well, good news! Filmmakers Viet Ngyuen and Christopher Dinh are making a feature-length version of their famed YouTube, comedy-horror short – Crush the Skull.
Fans of Wong Fu Productions will soon see Phil, Wes, and Chris with blue, yellow, purple or red hair.
The new ‘dos are just one of many promised perks from their indiegogo.com crowdfunding campaign for their first movie. The perk was partially to support Ted, who’s had to answer questions on why his hair is white (it’s genetic, he’s had that hair since he was 14) but mostly to add another fun perk in the last few days of their highly successful online campaign.
It began on Feb. 6, setting the goal at $200,000, and ended on March 19 with $358,278. They offered 26 different donation perks ranging from a $1 High-Five of Awesome all the way up to a $10,000 Executive Producer credit and VIP treatment. Several of their perks sold out quite fast, so as the limited perks began to sell out and donations kept coming in, Wong Fu added more along the way. In the end, Wong Fu raised nearly double their intended goal in only 40 days.
