Fan Tweet Morphs Into $69,000 Kevin Smith Cartoon Feature

How cool is this? A few years ago, Toronto-based animator Steve Stark tweeted out to Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes a cartoon he put together based on a Jay & Silent Bob SModcast. It led to a relationship that now has the Canuck first-time directing the pair’s cartoon feature.

Jay & Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie will start rolling out this spring by means of a Red State USA-style cross-country road show, with the two leads in tow for lively post-show podcast Q&A. From today’s announcement:

Adam West Fan Doc Gets World Premiere Date

Los Angeles filmmaker James Tooley, who funded Starring Adam West two years ago via Kickstarter, is set for a somewhat unusual locale  to unveil the finished product. His feature documentary will world premiere next month at the second annual Sun Valley Film Festival (March 14-17).

That has since come to pass, in April 2012, so Starring now stands as something of a double celebration. Per a December 17 Kickstarter update, the Idaho festival fits right in with Tooley’s final project duties:

I know it’s taken a long time and I really appreciate everyone’s patience. We’re now working on the final cut and next comes color correction and mix in January and February. Licensing some of the clips has proven to be difficult but we hope to have the film completed early in 2013. I’m really happy with it and I hope you guys all love it as much as I do.
