Company Summary

Opportunity

Adventures of Bunny Bravo will have an all-star cast and over a dozen pop songs written by several talented songwriters, including Michael Corcoran (writer of the theme songs for Drake & Josh, iCarly, Victorious, etc.) and Leon Thomas (Grammy-winning producer for Ariana Grande and Babyface), plus a new sound design and a completely new musical score by Ramon Balcazar (Wings). The film, animated using modern computer-generated imagery (CGI) technology, will be produced in both English and Spanish. Mychal’s first and only other film release in English and Spanish, Un Gallo Con Muchos Huevo, made over $9 million at the box office.i

The company, Bravo Bunny LLC is raising funds to market and distribute (‘release’ in industry parlance) Adventures of Bunny Bravo and the Spanish version, Un Conejo de Huevos, in the U.S., UK, Canada, Mexico, and South America. The principal production for both films has already been completed. All the actor performances have been captured, the animated scenes have been fully rendered, and the next step is creating the deliverables and marketing materials required by buyers. Once the film is complete, marketing and distribution can begin.

Synopsis

Adventures of Bunny Bravo is about a rabbit named Bravo. Bravo never does anything right and, to make things worse, his little brother (Taquito) is the "chosen one,” which means he will be the Easter Bunny when he grows up. Bravo has one job ─ to watch over and protect his little brother ─ which turns out to be more difficult than it seems. Taquito has a knack for getting lost, and the evil Cat Queen has her mind set on having the Easter Bunny under her powers. The adventure begins when Taquito is kidnapped by the Cat Queen's henchmen. Bravo and his band of unlikely animal heroes (a dog, a pig, a frog, and a turtle) must go on a journey to rescue him. Along the way, Bravo learns about love between species when he himself falls in love with a cute cat named Cat, and he finds courage when he stands up to the powers of evil in order to set his brother free and save Easter forever.

Executive Team

Mychal Simka, Producer: Mychal Simka grew up in Anaheim, California, where he was greatly inspired by Walt Disney. As an adult, he has come to work in the animation industry Disney pioneered. Mychal is the writer, director, and producer of “re-versioned” animated features, meaning he takes movies produced abroad in non-English languages and adapts them for American audiences primarily through editing and rewriting dialog. In the past, Mychal produced three to four feature-length animated films for the home entertainment market annually in cooperation with Lionsgate and partner Grindstone Entertainment. His production company, Simka Entertainment, provided the scripts, celebrity voice talent, original songs, and music score. He wrote, produced, and directed the company’s last four animated films and currently has two animated pilots in production. Fluent in five languages, Mychal has worked with clients and partners around the world, casting films for producers such as Lars von Trier and consulting for special functions like film festivals and private events. He recently also acquired a state-of-the-art music recording facility and has started producing original songs with the actors of his films.

Bart Baker, Executive ProducerBart is an American entertainer, web-based comedian, video producer, and artist. Known for his short videos on Vine and also Live.ly. Bart, is one of the top online influencers in the world with a YouTube following of over 12 million.

 

Use of Proceeds and Distribution

 Use of Proceeds

Funding from this campaign will be used to create the deliverables required for distribution in the U.S., UK, Canada, Mexico, and South America and fund marketing the project to cable, pay-per-view, premium video-on-demand, and DVD buyers in those markets.

If the minimum $200,000 is raised, proceeds will be spent mainly on production costs ($80,000) and marketing ($42,500). If the maximum $500,000 is raised, proceeds will be spent mainly on marketing ($201,500), production costs ($100,000), and related party debt ($100,000).

Marketing

Bravo Bunny goes beyond the normal requirements for a producer of foreign animated films by contracting and coordinating with the stars for television interviews and extensive social media campaigns. Almost all the stars involved in Adventures of Bunny Bravo are contractually required to post several times to each of their social media pages, including YouTube, Twitter, Vine, Instagram, and Facebook, as well as make appearances for TV interviews and live events such as DVD release parties. Together with his publicist, Mychal utilizes these obligations strategically to potentially gain the maximum benefit for the overall sales of the film. Furthermore, based on the success of Mychal's first and only other film released in English and Spanish (Un Gallo Con Muchos Huevos, which made over $9 millioniv) Mychal hired Rafael Amaya, star of Mexico's popular TV series Señor de los Cielos, to play the lead role. Amaya is also under obligation to do interviews and other publicity.
