Animated Rock Opera Series HELL ON EARTH Raises Money for Pilot Episode
Hell On Earth co-creator Brett Truett started his career as an actor and director in the avant-garde theater scene in Seattle during the peak of the city's creative renaissance of the nineties. He moved to Los Angeles in 1999 to become famous and promptly decided that he'd rather shave his head and join a cult than subject himself to the horror that is the pursuit of an acting career in Los Angeles. So, in short order, he transformed himself into a post-production wonk.
He began editing music videos and concerts for a wide range of high-profile music acts including No Doubt, 50 Cent, and Queens of the Stone Age until he moved into television where he continues to make his living finishing shows like Arrow, Revolution, and Weeds. Brett has also made a a name for himself as an independent filmmaker -- he produced a successful, critically acclaimed educational DVD of Shakespeare's Macbeth in 2002, and made the award-winning short film, Splitsville, that swept the festival circuit in 2007, winning several awards and qualifying for Academy Award consideration. He also edited and acted in the independent feature, Raising Genius, starring Justin Long, Stephen Root and Wendy Malick.
Hell On Earth co-creator Francisco Enciso started as an underground graffiti artist in east Los Angeles. Despite his unconventional background, his exceptional talent earned him a spot at the renowned character animation school at California Institute for the Arts, founded by Walt Disney himself. While there, Francisco distinguished himself as an artist of unique and bold vision with his controversial short, Snow White Trash. After his tenure at Cal Arts, Francisco directed and animated several short films including the edgy Internet favorite, Harry Pothead. He then went on to do special effects and motion graphics in music videos, television, and feature films. He created visual effects for the films Hellboy and Shoot 'Em Up, and the television show, Lost. He also designed all of the motion graphics for the DVD portion of 50 Cent's smash hit, Get Rich or Die Tryin'.
