SUPPORT MY FILMS ON PATREON.COM (please.)



I LOVE making my cartoon films. It is something that brings me a lot of joy, and I really hope they bring you a lot of joy too. If you enjoy my work and want to support it (in any way), I would greatly appreciate it if you would head over to PATREON.COM and become a Patron. Even a little bit helps. If enough people support, it really adds up fast and will help me in the production of my animated films.

Here's how it works:

1) Head over to www.patreon.com/jimlujan

2) Click "Become a Patron"

3) Choose any amount you would like to contribute per film 
    (set a max monthly limit so you don't go broke)

4) Enjoy the films and some exclusive Patron content!

That's it! Easy as pie! It really does help. The films will always be free to enjoy, but this is a way to show support for the art that you enjoy. All an any amount is more than appreciated!

Thanks!

-Jim

PATREON: JIM LUJAN


 
 Watch this video and be sooooo inspired to support my cartoons!

What is Patreon? Patreon is an easy way for those who have enjoyed my work in the past (and brand new fans) to contribute a little something back and get some really cool stuff in return. Each time I put out a new animated film, you decide what amount you are comfortable contributing and set your limit of how many times per month. Easy as that!

You can also back out at anytime. No harm- no foul. It really will help to keep these films moving forward. It gives me, the creator, some revenue for my work. Everybody is happy! I'm really looking forward to connecting with the people who really enjoy my films...and rolling around on my living room floor in the millions of dollars contributed!  

Seriously...Thanks! :)

-Jim

FIRST REVENGEANCE PICTURES!


Rod Rosse bites Luis Escobar. Oh yes, there's plenty of biting in this movie!
Luis deeply questions his life decisions at this moment.
Luis hungers for freedom....or needs more iron in his diet.
Things fly around when the party gets wild.
Here are the first fully colored shots released from the animated feature REVENGEANCE. These beautifully applied colors are by Sandrine Plympton. This is part of the opening sequence in which the miniscule bounty hunter Rod Rosse attempts to capture the large and hairy (and very upset) Luis Escobar.  Things don't always go as planned...especially when you don't have a plan.

SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON: Bill Plympton will be showing the first few minutes of the film on THURSDAY, JULY 27th at NOON in ROOM ABC-23! Hope to see you there!

REVENGEANCE AUDIO RECORDING HAS BEGUN

Today marks the start of the audio recording for the Revengeance animated feature.  I did the recording at Bella Fe Studios in West LA. Thank you Ken Mora for running the session. It was a blast  being able to make as much noise as I wanted and not have any neighbors call the cops thinking someone was being murdered. Which leads me to ask...Ken...have you ever actually murdered anyone in that sound-proof booth?  More coming soon.

Check www.revengeancemovie.com in the meanwhile!
