Hey Everyone, my name is Jeffrey Trzepkowski. I'm a 19 year old film student at New York Film Academy, Universal Studios. I am on my way to earning my Associates degree in Film. My goal as an artist is to create something unique that can trigger emotions out of the audience. I am a big believer in experimental film and I like to incorporate a psychedelic atmosphere into my work. I was born and raised in Ahwatukee, a suburb of Phoenix, AZ but currently reside in Burbank, CA. I have been drawing ever since I was a kid and have always wanted to create my own cartoon show. I recently completed my 1st year film which is a claymation titled "Touch of Love". The Story follows a hobo who stumbles upon a guitar and together they are transported to the moon for a rock concert. 


I want to create an animated series pilot episode inspired by this short and introduce new characters while adding to the set design. The series would focus around a hobo who was once a famous musician but threw it all away to find himself. He wanders the streets and feels the music racing in his veins. The hobo hopes to one day rise to the top of the charts once again. Along the way he encounters other drifters from different walks of life and together they form a rock band. I have many ideas on where the story will go as the series unfolds and will continue to write out future episodes during the campaign. I am also working on developing other claymation story concepts and bringing those to life as well.


To be able to independently produce this project we will need to raise $6000 for supplies and equipment. These include armatures, clay, set design supplies, paint, DSLR camera (Canon 5D or 7D), lenses, tripod, extension chords, lights, computer software & visual fx.  


Whether you're able to donate or not, getting the word out is a great way to help this production. Posting a link to your friends and family will greatly magnify our chances of getting this animated series up and running. Thank you.
