Logline: 
When two best friends are magically transported into an old stop-motion animation kids TV show they inadvertently kill the main character and set off a chain of events that threaten to destroy reality.
Synopsis/Details: 

This story takes place in two worlds. Ours and the stop-motion world of Happy Town however there is a small amount of other animated worlds that will be quickly shown.

The main characters would require 2 male actors in their late 20's who are your typical slacker and straight man combo in the vein of Seth Rogen and James Franco in Pineapple Express. While there will be other cast required the vast majority of acting outside of the two main characters will be voice over.

This story is an adult film based inside a children's medium. I have been told previously that this is a mix that wouldn't be viable in the market but I think the success of Sausage Party has proven that opinion to be incorrect.

The Writer: Matthew Corry

I am a writer who prides himself on creating original horror stories that avoid standard tropes and cliches. It is my goal to create stories that not only leave a stroke of fear through the viewer but also to create strong realistic characters to ensure the horror and tragedy is not simply visual. I write mainly low budget horror features as from a business point of view I want to mimic certain production companies proven systems of producing low cost/high profit films, however, I do like the dark side of comedy and have written other scripts outside of my preferred medium. I have also written a pilot for a highly original supernatural/drama series. Go to bio
