Jon Favreau and Seth Green Team Up for Stop-Motion Animated Series MICRO MAYHEM
Jon Favreau’s Golem Creations (The Mandalorian) and Seth Green’s Stoopid Buddy Stoodios (Robot Chicken) are teaming up for a new stop-motion animated series for Quibi titled Micro Mayhem.
The show was created by Eric Towner (Robot Chicken) and is based on a couple of viral short videos that he made with John Harvatine IV. The show is a series “of over-the-top shorts where the cars are the characters.” In each self-contained short-form episode, “the cars set the stage with an immense amount of attitude and personality in the dialogue-free grindhouse action series.”
The logline for the series reads, “The series combines miniature filmmaking and stop-motion artistry in a wild (and comically violent) ride like no other!” Towner sais in a statement:
“Micro Mayhem brings to life the car chases I imagined as a kid, and combines my love of technology and stop-motion artistry. We’re thrilled to be teaming with Golem Creations to bring this dream project to life.
“Quibi’s focus on micro storytelling provides the perfect platform for Micro Mayhem. We are excited to work with Eric and his team at Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, to bring this wild ride to audiences one turn at a time,” added Greg Clayman, Senior Vice President, New Platforms and Strategic Partnerships, Film and Television at eOne.
I’ve included the previously made Micro Mayhem short videos below for you to watch to give you an idea of what to expect from the upcoming series. This looks like it’ll be a lot of fun! I’m still not really sold on the Quibi streaming service, though.
