Check out exclusive House of Monsters concept art by Dawn Brown and Warren Manser and find out how to win a beautiful Bride of Frankenstein maquette!

Last year Dawn Brown started a Kickstarter campaign to fund the production of her next stop-motion animation web series House of Monsters based on the award-winning short. They got really, really close to their goal. But, unfortunately, didn't make it. She's not giving up though and has started a new campaign that promises to be bigger than ever.

Here's some concept art they sent me for the film. It's glorious.

Even though the great stop-motion animator Ray Harryhausen is gone it's great that stop motion animation isn't dead. That's why I support this project and you should too!

Here's the full press release
Built around a 2012 stop-motion short film of the same name, the new House of Monsters web series is a throwback to the classic Rankin/Bass holiday specials like Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer and Mad Monster Party. House of Monsters is created by Dawn Brown, a successful Hollywood concept artist, whose credits include Alice in Wonderland, Pirates of the Caribbean, and The Hunger Games movies. When Brown was developing new character designs for the House of Monsters Kickstarter campaign, she turned to veteran concept artist Warren Manser. Manser's credits include Man of Steel, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, and Thor.

“Great concept art can charge the imagination and inspire people to jump on board the project,” says Brown. “Warren has an amazing talent for capturing the charm and energy of what we hope to accomplish with House of Monsters.” Brown has turned to the popular crowdfunding site Kickstarter to raise funds to initiate production of the series. “We felt that Kickstarter would be a great way to get people involved and be a part of the filmmaking process from the very beginning.”

The series follows mummies, werewolves, vampires and friends through their adventures in an ominous castle perched over a fearful village. House of Monsters will begin production after the Kickstarter campaign wraps April 17, 2014. The series will premiere on Amazon.com early next year.

That's it! Any questions, just ask. Good Luck!  

Here are some of the episodes planned:

  • "Full Moon Fever" - bear witness to the most spectacular stop-motion werewolf transformation in the history of cinema! Also featuring singing and dancing creatures of the night.
  • "Frank and the Zombie Girl" - Frank finds true love when the local village is over-run by zombies. Zombie Girl's inevitable decay puts a hitch in their budding romance.
  • "Sasquatch vs. Yeti" - All bets are off when the furry brutes compete in feats of strength.
  • "The Odd Couple" - The vampire and the mummy become unlikely roommates when the count's coffin is suspiciously compromised.
