A movie version of the popular Dick Figures YouTube series, produced by Ed Skudder and Pixar veteran Zack Keller, is set for online release on September 17.
The series has generated 350 million views on YouTube from 40 episodes over three years through Mondo Media, starting with “A Bee Or Something” and including such chapters as “Sex Marks the Spot” and “Pussy Magnet.”
Ed Skudder and Pixar veteran Zack Keller produced the 73-minute animated feature through Six Point Harness, an independent studio based in Los Angeles.
