LOS ANGELES - May 13, 2014 - PRLog -- After a year of dreaming, planning and assembling a stellar team, Tim Scott Films is proud to announce that Team Bebop has launched a Kickstarter for its’ namesake project: “The Wild Adventures of Bebop Fuzz”. The project is an animated comedy/adventure that follows a daring cat, Bebop Fuzz. Bebop was born with only one of nine lives, so although his mother is overprotective of him, he strives to make the most of the one life he has in this innovative, all-ages animation. Bebop creator, Tim Scott, grew up in Frederick, Maryland and moved to L.A. in the summer of 2012 to work in film. He has done work for Free People, Washingtonian Magazine, Participant Media, Discovery Channel andToms Shoes. Additionally, Tim has obtained multiple awards for his original work, including an Honorable Mention at the New York City Independent Film Festival for his last film, “Spaceman Wilson”.

“Bebop emerged from a drawing for a short film I did called ‘Beans’ in Frederick, Maryland for this 72 hour film fest,” Scott said of the origins of Bebop. Scott made several films under the name Team Bebop, and used this little cat as the logo at the beginning of those films.

“My dad always told me, ‘Why don’t you do something with that cat that you have at the beginning of your films?’ My dad really likes cats,” Scott said. About a year ago, Scott began contemplating the creation of a new type of animated film. It would involve handmade puppets that are animated in post-production, to create a live-action feel for the characters. A simple example of what that may look like can be seen in the video entitled, "Sleeping In".


The purpose of the Kickstarter is to fund a short film (in the vein of a Pixar short) that will get Bebop up in space, for a space adventure. The short will “stand as a proof of concept to show producers and financiers in order to secure funds for a long-form series, with 8-12 episodes, which we will pitch to networks and entertainment entities such as Netflix, Cartoon Network, Hulu, and Nickelodeon – among others,” according to the Kickstarter page. The finished film will be made available to watch for free online. Bebop will be a fun-filled, imaginative, character-driven film, entertaining all ages while tackling a new sort of animated movie magic.

“Bebop is the type of film that I’ve subconsciously been wanting to make for a long time. I was not prepared to dream big enough for this type of project. I always thought of these bigger projects…as sort of pie in the sky films that I’d do in like 20 or 30 years, when in actuality it’s really accessible in the here and now. It just took time to find the team, find the inspiration and find the character,” said Scott.
