Ralph Bakshi Productions announces a brand-new series of shorts with all new animation by Ralph Bakshi and crew.
Groundbreaking director Ralph Bakshi (Fritz the Cat, American Pop) returns with new animation, new characters and new stories in Last Days of Coney Island.
Billed as an animated cop/mafia/horror movie set in the 1960s in New York’s Coney Island, Bakshi’s latest project kicks off with a crowd funding campaign on Kickstarter beginning February 1.
“Last Days of Coney Island is a series of shorts set against the strange backdrop of Coney Island and all its weird characters: crooked cops, broken hearts, jaded strippers, and singers. It takes place on and around Coney's garish, freaky midways and dark alleyways,” says Bakshi. “It also discusses America: Kennedy's assassination, the mafia, Bobby Dylan, Vietnam, Dick Tracey, Miss America. It's as real as it is crazy and funny.”
