“Pool Scum” | New Animated Skateboarding Short Film

File this under: Things we love!

MOVIE MOUNTAIN is small independent film studio making short films located on a mountain top in Washington State.  We use a combination of old school practical effects equipment (a 25 year old motion control system, puppets, models and other miniatures) and modern equipment (RED cameras, Computer controlled LED lighting, composting and editing software) to make stuff no one else is making.  We see big potential in creating worlds and telling stories on social media through by shorts of various lengths.

MOVIE MOUNTAIN writes, “We believe that Patreon is an amazing way for us control our process and decide what we make an when we make it.  Our first project is a stop motion skateboarding project set in the 1980s in California called Pool Scum.  We are doing our Patreon on a per project bases, so you’ll only get billed when we come out with a new project.  For Pool Scum we made shirts and socks and have these as rewards for our backers.  Each tier gets early access to all of our content, (it will be posted here before anywhere else) as well as constant flow of behind the scenes and updates and happenings on the Mountain. Thank you for the support.”

I couldn’t find a lot of information about the project but I’m intrigued. checked out their Patron Page for all information and updates here:  become a patron to Movie Mountain.
