My name is Michael Fenton. I opened 4:19 Studios LLC to be able to make 2D & 3D Stoner animated shows/skits. My skits have very little pg-13 profanity if any at all, & no nudity. I work alone and have no income. My wife Amanda supports the studios with her job, so we are always walking the line of debt stomping us. Yet my goal is clear; to make shows that will entertain folks, give a smile or laugh, and all for FREE.
We can sell merchandise in the future once the shows are well know and there is a demand to help with bills. I want my site to be like a FREE version of Netflix eventually. No ads in the shows/skits either. If there is an Ad on the page, I made it & it's fun.
If I get a normal job, Amanda is at the side of her taxes where we would cross, & would not be able to afford to pay them, so a minimum wadge job wouldn't help us. Since I raised our girls while Amanda looked for and built a career, I have no other experience to make more than minimum wadge. I work night and day in the studio(2nd bedroom of apartment), and at times even sleep on a mat on the floor so I can keep working.
3D animation is very tough and I do all alone except for the few folks who are willing to help with voices for characters. Which is unpaid intern work for now. I won't stop, I'll be making my shows until the day I die. I have many fun ideas and you may see what I'm working on now at https://www.crazytalk419.com or https://www.419shows.com .
I hope you stop by for a free trip to another universe. My shows are mostly Sci-Fi Comedy. When I start full episodes of the 4:19 Stoner chicks, that will be a drama with some comedy and a lot of action. Thank you for stopping by, have a wonderful day. Oh, and I didn't do a Kickstarter because I will always have full controls over my shows/skits and my studio. I won't let fans(Friends of 4:19) down.
