‘Dick Figures The Movie’ Releases Trailer, Sets Release Date
Dick Figures is part of the Mondo Media MCN and has over 145,000 subscribers, 350 million total views in three years, and 11 million new views per month. Their month-and-a-half-long Kickstarter effort’s goal was $250,000, but when the campaign came to a close on July 16 of 2012, the show had raised over $313,000 — the most successful animated Kickstarter project at the time.
Dick Figures is written by Ed Skudder and Zack Keller and focuses on the exploits of two friends named Red & Blue. The movie is set to be 73 minutes long and the trailer, below, reveals early details of Red and Blue’s friendship and the worldwide quest to find a birthday gift for Pink, Blue’s girlfriend — also, lots of dubstep. If the full-length film stays consistent with the two- to four-minute videos the show specializes in, it should prove to be funny, crude, and delightfully knowledgeable about both itself and pop culture in general.
