PRODUCTION NOTES ...

ZONK's New Age Noah in production

PRESS RELEASE   May 4, 2020

New Age Noah is a dramatic comedy, a short STOP MOTION film using Funko TM Magnetic Vinyl Characters with significant hair, makeup, and wardrobe contributions.  Quite frankly, underneath the paint, decals, and glitter are several DC Aquaman figures that we recycled and reconditioned from our lowercase joey short film.

Eons have passed since 'original' Noah built his ark at the request of God.  Now, in present day Santa Monica, California, the first Noah's descendant (also named Noah) has embraced the family business.  He's an expert woodworker.  He's also into jigsaw puzzles, as we will see.

God finds Noah busy in his workshop and asks him to build an ark.  Ever respectful Noah gets to work, constructs the ark (which, by-the-way, he purchases from Amazon).   Then Noah rounds up two of every creature (good guys only).

But only afterward when the rains come and Noah and his 'herd' set sail, does God realize there is a very serious problem.  NO SPOILER ALERT HERE.  Check out the completed episodes on YouTube in July, 2020.

Directed by Mark Brown.  Screenplay by Mark Brown.

Mark Brown, Chris Gallego Wong, and Jodi Fung produce.

Jose Prieto composes and sound edits.

 

Principle photography in Toluca Lake, CA. is complete.  Voice overs are next.

Project completion ... June, 2020.  For additional information email ... ZONK

ZONK's lowercase joey in production

PRESS RELEASE   November 1, 2019

lowercase joey is a dramatic comedy, a short STOP MOTION film using Funko TM Magnetic Vinyl Characters with significant hair, makeup, and wardrobe contributions.  Quite frankly, underneath the paint, decals and glitter are a dozen DC Aquaman figurines.  Gotta start somewhere.

Forty-year-old Max Venable, now single, faces major surgery that will definitely impact his sex life.  You see, Max has been diagnosed with stage one prostate cancer.  But he's fit, doesn't drink (much), or smoke, and has never done drugs.  Prostate cancer moves very slowly, so usually when it presents itself in later life, the recommendation is to monitor it.  Basically, something else will get you first.  However, given Max's age and otherwise great physical shape, his urologist, Dr. Hap, recommends a radical prostatectomy ... surgical removal of the cancerous prostate.

Max is torn between Dr. Hap's opinion and the adamant stance championed by his (behind-the-scenes) significant other who protests that surgery would be a drastic mistake.  No, Max's significant isn't his girlfriend, and not a 'best friend with benefits.'  It's his 'pal' joey who, by-the-way, shares the same birth date as Max. You might say that 'they have been roommates forever.'
