BE A PART OF ANIMATION HISTORY!!!!!
The FIRST in a NEW SERIES OF SHORTS BY RALPH BAKSHI.
It’s an animated cop, mafia, horror movie set in the 1960s in Coney Island, with political overtones both realistic and outrageous.
Ground-breaking Director Ralph Bakshi Returns with New Animation, New Characters, and New Stories in “Last Days of Coney Island Part One”!
Hi. My name is Ralph Bakshi – the writer and director of such films as Fritz the Cat, Coonskin, Hey Good Looking, Heavy Traffic, Wizards, American Pop, Cool World, Fire and Ice, and Lord of the Rings.
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.
Coney Island, NY
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 Productions, Inc is turning to YOU – the fans, the public, the community – to MAKE THIS HAPPEN AND BE A PART OF HISTORY.
