Sex Fuzz and Rock'n'Roll (SFRR), is a 22 minute puppet adult comedy TV show written by director Matt Michaud and Brian Kordowsky to be produced by the New York based Effigy Pictures LLC. A team consisting of Gareth Pugh and Noemie Jacout.

Over the past eight months, Noemie and I have produced four short films, two music videos  for the bands "Zoo Legacy" and "Evolver", three spec commercials, and two reality show sizzle reels. We are a professional team that gets media in on time and on budget. Here is our latest production. http://vimeo.com/67022494 

We are so excited to make SFRR a reality with Matt Michaud after catching his web series "Three Way". With the proceeds from the campaign we will shoot a pilot that will market the show to networks, bring it to short film festivals, and create a web series. If you would like to know more about the show and our distribution strategy, download a PDF of our production bible from www.themopspilot.wix.com/sfrr

            Synopsis

"The Muppets" meets "South Park" meets "Greg the Bunny"

Sex, Fuzz, and Rock 'n' Roll satires hipster culture through the oppressed and drug filled lives of the first all puppet punk band "The Mops" as they try to make it in Brooklyn, New York. NED, GUNNER, FELIX, and BRODY live in an alternate universe where puppets come to life, are labelled "monsters" and are treated like second class citizens.

After getting kicked out of B-Sides bar, NED, FELIX, and GUNNER find out their human bass player, KEITH, has deserted them to join up with the monster hating LARS and the Diamond Butterflies! This sparks the search for a new bass player. After a series of failed interviews they find MARK, a half human half monster or "Furbie". The celebration lasts all night but MARK unfortunately passes away from a lethal combination of codeine and "super awesome ecstasy pills". After dumping the body, the Mops find and enlist the help of BRODY, a monster roadie for the all human Lars and the Diamond Butterflies. LARS is subtly miffed over the loss of his roadie and challenges an incredibly high FELIX to a guitar off.

Will the Mops finally have an all monster band? Or will Lars and his minions continue to rule Bushwick? 

    Ned

NED – Lead singer (Kurt Cobain / Alan Ginsburg)

Ned grew up in Brooklyn his whole life. He was born to an Irish monster mother known for her time spent aboard the Sea Serpent anti-whaling vessel and an immigrant Swedish clock maker known as el Monstro. They were killed in a freak knitting accident during a Tuesday night crotchet club. He eventually turned 18 and was released from the care of his foster parents. He began writing music shortly after.

          Gunner

GUNNER – Drums (Joey Ramone / Joe Strummer) Cockney accent.

Gunner was born in Brixton, England. An orphan with a "ftw" attitude, Gunner went to live with his grandmother in London. His bad boy status soon caught up with him when his gambling debts piled up. Gunner was forced to run away to New York and became an illegal monster. To pay the bills Gunner became a "FURRY", a monster prostitute catering to the small niche of stuffed animal loving humans. He gave it up when he realized that his cleaning bills left him without a profit. Unbeknownst to Gunner, he fathered 13 illegitimate Furbies (half human/half monster) in 2 years. He also really likes whales. 

           Felix

FELIX– Lead guitar (Keith Richards) Years of heavy smoking and drug use have left Felix's brain and voice box completely fried. He struggles to form sentences leaving only the band to understand him.

Felix grew up in Seattle, Washington and was raised by his drug dealing sister. Felix escaped the reality of the world by retreating into his guitar and music. The allure of drugs became to much for him and Felix began to use. After a hard fought argument with his sister over “whose bong this was”, Felix left home and moved to New York. Felix met Gunner and Ned at a party and joined the band. His drug use continues to spiral out of control with a new penchant for bath salts (a drug cocktail of cocaine, heroin, MDMA, and acid) yet seems impervious to death. 

                       Brody

BRODY – Bass (Brody Armstrong / Joan Jett)

Brody grew up in L.A. She had a normal life when she was a child. When she was sixteen her father walked out on her family to go be with his secret other family that he kept for many years in Sacramento. After many years Brody developed a very strained relationship with her mother. She took out all her aggression with her band . Eventually the band got to sign with a major label, but left Brody behind because of her monster status.

WHY PUPPPETS? I DON'T UNDERSTAND...

The mops is really one of a kind. With the success of so many computer animated and cartoon comedy shows the market is ready and the time is right for a different type of animation... Puppetry. The juxtaposition of puppets animated to bring smiles to children's faces with the notorious no good nature of the Mops will leave you laughing in stitches.
