The popular YouTube series Dick Figures set the record for largest animated fundraising effort on Kickstarter in summer of 2012 and now, after 350 million views on YouTube and $300,000 raised on Kickstarter, the creators and producers of Dick Figures The Movie have announced the official digital release date.
The distribution model will combine ad-supported and paid options across all major digital platforms, giving fans control over how they want to watch. Distribution will begin on September 17th.
The production company Six Point Harness and distributor Mondo Media have partnered with YouTube/Google, Cinedigm and Yekra to launch a unique, digital distribution plan for the 73-minute, animated feature film.
From the creative minds of Ed Skudder and Zack Keller comes a 73-minute animated feature. Skudder, a USC film grad, and Keller, a Pixar veteran with credits on WALL-E and Up, produced the feature at Six Point Harness, an independent studio based in Los Angeles.
The movie comes on the heels of 40 episodes of YouTube domination, which all began on November 18th, 2010 with a short episode titled A Bee or Something. Some 350 million views later, the animated series is an international phenomenon on the verge of releasing a full-length feature film. Link to trailer: www.youtube.com/embed/H0poVodH4Vo
