The Project

Director Takahide Hori's debut film, Junk Head 1, was created as a largely solo effort and will be screened in the competition at the 2014 Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival. You can also see the full version here:

  The above film took four years to make, but if enough funds can be secured, the director intends to concentrate his full attention on Junk Head 2 (60 min.) and do it in about two years.

The Funding

The funding will go to support the director for the two years it will take to realize Junk Head 2. This has been calculated as the absolute minimum to quit his job and devote himself to film production. If the funding goal cannot be reached, it's unclear when or if the film will be completed. If extra funding is accumulated the director will be able to consider hiring staff to assist and make an even higher quality production.


このJunk Head 1は仕事の合間に殆ど一人で制作した自主制作です。
Junk Head 1 は今後長く続くストーリーの第1話で、2年以内に1時間位の続編制作を




The Perks (updated)

Let's take a close look at the two huge perks, because we're sure you are curious about them...

For $5,000, the 110-page original (Japanese) storyboard and 15 character design sheets. 

Director Hori points out that on a larger scale production there would have been more concept art (including lots in glorious full color) but since he was working alone he only required simple sketches.

For collectors, the only perk better than this one is...

...the $50,000 perk! It says you get the "lab set and character dolls," but what exactly does that mean?

There are twenty figurines including the protagonist, the lab members, and plenty of creepy crawlies. (The mysterious character at the end is not included.) Of course, they are all posable (Updated: except the protagonist, since he ended up in pieces at the end of the first film). The set itself measures 180 cm x 55 cm x 90 cm and requires an outlet. It could be sent as soon as sometime in the middle of this year and we really will visit you to set it up!
