CINEMA INSOMNIA “Brine Chimps” Animator Jam continues!


Brine Chimp BannerOur early deadline is over BUT Brine Chimps cannot be stopped!

Cinema Insomnia “Sea-Monkey Spoof” used as a showcase for filmmakers created in cooperation with Mike Schneider and Neoflux Productions–the brains behind “Night of The Living Dead Re-Animated”!

On Cinema Insomnia’s new season–your  horror host, Mr. Lobo, as always, presents some of the best cult, horror and sci-fi movies the ZOM-BEE TV can afford.

In a new reoccurring segment on the show, Mr Lobo will have mail-order pets called ‘Brine-Chimps’. Each episode he will be checking in on his microscopic menagerie and you are invited to animate them!

What happens in the tank when Mr. Lobo peers in?

Here is the parody ad for use as a reference or source of inspiration for your own characters.
