If Takahide Hori gets the IndieGoGo cash he seeks, he'll quit the day job and focus on film making full time.
Takahide Hori's Junk Head 1 is something you have to see to believe. In this far-future story, a lone explorer is sent into the bowels of an underground labyrinth, in hope of finding a particular genetic sample. But things soon go wrong, and our hero finds himself trapped in a situation, and a body, not of his choosing. It's crazy, it's hideous, it's beautiful and charming, and it's about half an hour long. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.
Takahide Hori's looking for $100,000 in IndieGoGo cash to make a sequel. Junk Head 1 took him about four years to make, working full time at a white collar day job and tackling his stop motion dream project in his spare moments. He hasn't the stomach for that kind of effort a second time, hence the IndieGoGo; if he makes his target, he'll quit his day job and concentrate full time on film making.
"If people are interested in the sequel and are willing to donate the funds necessary to make it, I'll make it," says Hori. "If I can't collect enough, I intend to quit making movies altogether."
