Congratulations to our Kickstarter Backer Contest Winner...

Jack O' Lantern welcomes our winner to the Pranksta 'hood!
Dawn Poganik! Thank you for your generous contribution. As the winner of The Halloween Pranksta's "Be a Character in the Movie" Contest, Dawn could be the face of one of the characters, but she's requested the honor go to her husband. Your wish is granted: congratulations to you both!

Also, in the coming weeks we'll have more exciting production updates heading your way as our director, Carl Paolino steamrolls into the next stages of the film.

Welcome to the world of The Halloween Pranksta, a new stop-motion adventure about a classic unsung antihero--the Trick or Treater more interested in tricks than treats. The making of this short film is an adventure of its own and we’ll keep you updated as we roll into different phases of the production. We’ve already got lots to share, so come by for details and sneak peeks!
