Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 10, 2014
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.
