Produced by Jason Mewes, written by Kevin Smith and directed by first time filmmaker Steve Stark, Jay & Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie follows the convenience store stoners from Clerks as they win the lottery and transform themselves into costumed avengers.
“Most comic book movies have a budget of $100m or more,” said Smith. “This is what a comic book movie looks like at $69,000. Yes, the budget was only $69,000, and yes, that naughty number was insisted upon by our producer, Jason Mewes.”

Project Name: Funporium Asking For: $30,000 on Kickstarter Amount Raised Thus Far (At Time Of Post): $17,561 Days Remaining In Campaign (At Time Of Post): 8 Description: Funporium is a comedy, a puppet show, and a musical all rolled into one.

For all its similarities to the original, though, this week’s re-imagining of the series also offered some interesting updates. Among the more hyped of these changes was the introduction of Townsville’s flamboyant mathematician, Fibonacci Sequins (voiced by Ringo Starr).
