Kickstart This! Ralph Bakshi's LAST DAYS OF CONEY ISLAND

, Founder and Editor
Ralph Bakshi - the iconic cult animator responsible for Fritz The Cat, Coonskin, Cool World, Fire And Ice and the animated Lord Of The Rings - is getting back in the saddle and he needs your help to - as he puts it - do something for animation that isn't motivated by making you happy or stupid.It's called Last Days Of Coney Island and he's looking for your financial support on Kickstarter.

In my films I have always discussed America: who we are, what we are, for better and worse, and the ridiculous.  I'm here on Kickstarter asking for your support for my newest project, Last Days of Coney Island.

It's a series of shorts set against the strange backdrop of Coney Island and all its weird characters: crooked cops, broken hearts, jaded strippers, and singers.

The stories take place on and around Coney's garish, freaky midways and in it's dark alleyways.  They discuss America: Kennedy's assassination, the mafia, Bobby Dylan, Vietnam, Dick Tracy, Miss America, and more.
Bakshi is a true original and anything he sets his mind to is of immediate interest. Check the pitch video below for more.
