Nothing Better is an aimated series about teenagers with nothing better to do.
Mimi, Huggie, Zook and Sharon live in Nothing Hill, the most boring suburb. They hung out with each other, listening to noisy bands, watching bad TV, drinking cheap alcohol if they manage to get it and having occasional sex, simply because they're hormonal teens with nothing better to do.
Who are we?
Well, we're Glendon and Isabella, living and working together, doing animation, video and comics. Over the years we've created Tv and web series as: "SlaveCity" and "The silly show" along with many music videos and funny strips.
The idea of "Nothing better" started on 2009, when we made an animated series called "Nothing" to a cool comedy channel on Israeli cable TV. We made a fully animated season. Yey it was a great year. But the channel was shut down soon after, and since then the Israeli TV is boring as the Sahara desert and even less funny. We decided to revive nothing, but to do it better. Therefore: Nothing Better.
We want to create a web season of 5 episodes, 5 minutes each (English spoken off course). The episodes will be shown free of charge to anyone (who has nothing better to do)
Story of the season
The public playground is about to be destroyed and replaced by a gigantic set of buildings. Mimi, Huggie, Sharon and Zook decide to fight this evil scheme. The playground has a major role in their life. It's where they grew and played as children. It's where the they go today to chat, smoke, get drunk, make out. It's where the drug dealers come to sell their goodies by night. It's the best party in this boring town!
So, the gang fight with every weapon they have: hacking the city website and deleting it, spraying graffiti over the tractors, stealing the construction plan. Finally on a desperate move, they kidnap the contractor's wife – their old horny neighbor, Shoola.
Why we need funding
Creating animated series is loads of work, which we do all by ourselves – writing the script, drawing, animating, directing, editing, building soundtrack and dubbing. It should take about 6 months. The funding is for the simple need to keep us alive for this time J
It's important to say that we're very dedicated to the idea of Nothing better. Therefore, in case we'll raise only part of the money (and hopefully we'll raise it all, right?) we are still committed to produce episodes that will fit the final budget.
Peace and kiss
