Augenblick Studios (Ugly Americans, Wonder Showzen, Superjail, Golan the Insatiable) is producing an R-rated animated feature film with an A-list cast! We need your support to make the film!
The Adventures of Drunky is about a boozehound named Drunky (Sam Rockwell). When God (Jeffrey Tambor) and the Devil (Steve Coogan) make a cosmic pact and destroy his life, Drunky travels through Heaven and Hell to rescue the girl he loves (Nina Arianda) and save the world. He’s aided on his quest by an alley-cat (Tyler the Creator) and a demon (Dave Attell).

We’re Augenblick Studios, a Brooklyn-based animation studio. We’ve made a ton of cartoons including: Ugly Americans, Wonder Showzen, Superjail, Golan the Insatiable, Golden Age, and The Jellies. We make the really screwed-up cartoons that kids aren’t allowed to watch.
We’re here to make the greatest adult cartoon ever made! But we need your contributions so we can start animation!
“Yo WTF this movie is the sh*t!” – Oscar the Cat (Tyler the Creator)
What a f***ing cast! Am I right? Keep scrolling!
Making an adult animated movie is our dream and not making it is our nightmare.
We’ve been making adult animation for almost two decades now. We have a great studio and an awesome crew. We’ve teamed up with the award-winning film and animation company Cartuna (Sundance award-winning NUTS!) and we’re diving headfirst into our most exciting project to date. We’re ready to start animating!
But to make this a reality, we need your help.
Everybody loves adult cartoons on TV: South Park, Bob’s Burgers, Archer, Rick & Morty. But for some reason no one makes them for the big screen. Because R-rated animated films are so rare, finding mainstream financing for them is f**cking impossible. But we don’t care! We’re determined to make this movie by any means necessary!
The Adventures of Drunky will be the first animated feature film ever produced in Brooklyn! We’re making movie history and you get to be a part of it.
Drunky lives in Nowheresville, the worst city in the world. You won’t believe the crazy crime, wild parties, and crumbling architecture in this surreal skid row! If you want to see Nowheresville, donate today!
Adult animation is on the cusp of a golden age – The Guardian
Audiences (that’s you) are getting way cooler and want variety. There’s a whole generation of people who grew up on Adult Swim, South Park, and indie comics and they want R-rated cartoons. We’re reaching out to amazing folks like you to make this movie successful.
Crowdfunding places the power back into the hands of the people that really matter––THE AUDIENCE! With Indiegogo, we can spread the word and make the film we want without compromise.
If this campaign does well, people will be able to say, “Hey! Look at that! That Drunky movie made money! Let’s make more of those things!” So if you want to see more R-rated animated feature films, this is your opportunity to speak up and play a huge part in making this movie happen.
The heart of the movie is when God & the Devil use all the supernatural forces in the universe to torture Drunky (our hero). Lightning bolts, zombies, and wild beasts are just the start! We’ll make this the greatest animated action sequence in the history of movies if you donate today!
The budget to finish our movie is $2 million. While that may sound like a lot, it’s actually an extremely low budget compared to other animated features being made. On average we are talking a WHOPPING $150 MILLION! But by working on an independent budget we don’t need to answer to any studio “standards and practices” and can produce the movie we really want to make.
Our $100,000 target is our minimum viable goal to get to the next step of production (design and thumbnails, specifically). But we want to smash through this to finish all the other necessary elements for the movie.
Here’s where we are: we have a finished script (which is awesome!), full cast (we’re all friends now!), voices recorded (so many voices!), and concept art created (the foreplay of animation). Below is a breakdown of the remaining costs.
Welcome to Hell! A bunch of the movie is Drunky’s treacherous journey through the netherworld. We have demon orgies, evil creatures, torture machines, and much more we can’t even say. The only way to see this scary-ass sh*t is to donate today!
We couldn’t be more excited to make this movie. It’s the reason we wake up in the morning and we can’t wait for you to see it! Let’s DO THIS!
