Because of the bedlam inherent in managing a kickstarter campaign, my YouTube channel, Forlorn TV, has been on a bit of a hiatus the last couple weeks. But it will return, mopey/strange monologues in tact, this week. In the meantime: stop by, catch up, and subscribe!

Just a little over 30 hours left to be a part of GIANT SLOTH, starring Paul Giamatti, Kate McKinnon, Scott Aukerman, and more!

We’re already heading into production, starting with recording the actors and shooting interviews and “making of” footage. Above are Paul Giamatti on a balcony in Brooklyn, waxing nostalgic about his childhood museum experiences. Below that, a picture of our sound guru PK Hooker, fresh off of making Bumblebee talk in Transformers 4, setting levels to record Paul G and Kate McKinnon.

Pledge today to get the film, the featurette detailing how we’re making this whole production, the book crammed with production art, the script, and behind the scenes shots… and much more! And every pledge moves us closer to even more unlocked rewards!

NOW ONLY 21 hours left to be a part of GIANT SLOTH starring Paul Giamatti, scottaukerman, and more! Already pledged? increase your pledge and get more kickstarter-exclusive rewards!
