Project Main Details

Momma's Boy 
Momma’s Boy is a 2D animation about a rather peculiar character called Johnny. Johnny can be described as a 30 year old bad ass who lives at home with his mum and is very much still a ‘momma’s boy’. Johnny’s journey begins when he realizes his mother is upset on her birthday as she thinks he has not put in enough effort on her very special day. In a bid to try and rekindle the situation he sets off in a race against time to try and find a solution. On this journey Johnny passes a bus stop and sees 4 kids waiting on the side. He gets a sudden idea to use them to form a band which he hopes will make his mum happy. All the kids apart from one are carrying musical instruments therefore Johnny kidnaps the 3 of them with intentions of bringing them home to Momma. The last child Cub really thinks that Johnny is sinister therefore runs in the opposite direction to the nearest pay booth, where he phones the police. The kids at first are unaware of what is happening until Johnny runs out of gas, pulls over and explains it all. Cub manages to catch up with them at this point and all the children agree to help Johnny please his Momma.

Script Details

Script for auditions below. 

Ariel View of a black Cadillac speeding through a desert. We
pan down and are met with a rugged looking 30-something man
putting down a lighter in the shape of a gun which he has
just lit his cigarette with. In the back of the car are 3
kids all looking a little confused, all tied up with tape
over their mouths. Dolph, a young man with glasses and
slicked back hair wearing a jumper and a bow tie. Loth a
chubby blond boy looking bemused by the whole thing, and
finally Ink, a scared looking boy with long straggly hair,
carrying a blanket.

Johnny looks down at the dashboard and see’s his gas light

Looks like this is gonna take a
little longer.



We see the back of an elderly woman walking through a well
kept house. She is breathing slow and heavily. From the back
of her we can see she is wearing a yellow faded dress with
black diamond shapes all over it.

She walks through a pristine hallway with a bouquet of
flowers on a table-side.

She hears scuffling and noise in the next room. She turns
the corner.



Johnny turns as he quietly was attempting to leave the



Johnny looks suspicious.

I was just...




I know what you were doing. Don’t
think that your sorry excuse for a
person has got away with it
either...You forgot.

Johnny looks at the ground and mutters nonsense.

What was that? ANOTHER excuse?

I haven’t forgotten Momma!

Then Where is it?

Its....Somewhere else.

Johnny,distraught puts his coat on and leaves the house. We
see the momma look out the window, and sigh, then hear a car
door slam and an engine start.


Johnny is driving aggressively muttering to himself. He gets
angrier with each thing he is saying.

Good time, all i wanted was for her
to have one.

Effort i went to.

She’ll feel bad later.

There’s gotta be something i can

Johnny approaches a bus stop having driven past a child
whilst hurrying. He drives towards a bus stop with some
children waiting at it

That’s gonna have to do.



Three young boys are seen at the bus stop. They are playing
instruments to each other.

You kids want ice cream?



No. How about you drive off or I
scream old man.

Luckily i wasn’t talking to you eh?

Johnny brings out a gun from his pocket, which we have seen
previously is his lighter. He points it at the kids and in
turn makes a shooting noise at each kid. The kids all
reluctantly get in the back, and Johnny then gets out and
ties them all up.

Johnny looks around before driving off.


A young boy CUB, dressed in Khaki coloured clothing, is seen
approaching the bus stop. He is playing Harmonica. He
notices the three kids at the bus stop who are all playing

Cub looks annoyed and pockets his Harmonica.

As he says
knocks him
watches as
around and

Cub starts running in the opposite direction in shock.

One day i will do it, they will
hear my music LOUD.

this a car speeds past him and top speeds and
over. He gathers himself from the ground and
Johnny puts the kids in the car before looking
driving off.



Cub approaches a phone box fast and out of breath. He runs
inside it and picks up the phone.

Hello Police, a man just took some
kids in his car from the bus stop
on the way to school.

Ok. We’ll be right there.

I haven’t said where i am?

That doesn’t matter Kid, just go

There’s a dial tone and the police are gone. Cub runs
outside and finds a small child’s bike resting on a nearby
post. He then gets on it and pedals furiously the way he
came so that he can try get home.


Johnny is driving full pelt and we see him looking pleased
with himself. He looks in the mirror and at the kids, and
grins to himself.

This will do.

Do me just fine, you’ll see. Your
exactly what she’s after.

Ink looks scared and worried.

Johnny looks down at his watch and a blinking light catches
his eye. He see’s he is low on gas. He lets out a heavy sigh
of annoyance and pulls a hand break turn and speeds off in
the opposite direction. He is flooring it and manages to
re-over take CUB who is biking towards his house.


Cub who is again biking, in the general direction of a
petrol station is over taken speedily by Johnny, who again
knocks him off his feet, and this time, the bike.




Son of a gun.


A petrol station with only two pumps is shown with a
neon sign reading “GASTRONAUTS” shown blinking. A Dust cloud
is seen rising and the noise of an engine grows louder.
An old man sat in the pay booth looks out and presses a
counter saying “Customers this month” which changes from 8
to 9.

Johnny waits and looks across at the old man, who is slowly
approaching. He then looks at his own clock, and the sirens
get louder and louder. He looks back across and see’s the
man is not much closer.

Fudge this.

He gets out, and begins to fill the car up.

Now there son, no need to do that,
im quite capable.

You’ll be dead before you manage,
im in a hurry, i cant just wait for
you to never get here.


Johnny acknowledges the sirens.

That sounds about right.

IN slow motion we see Johnny put back the pump back in the
holster and look at the cops getting closer. When the pump
goes back in it drips on the floor. Johnny Puts a cigarette
to his mouth and gets the gun to light it, he then gets in
the car and speeds off, flicking the cigarette which lands
in the gasoline, the camera follows the flame, and we see it
go into the pump. As the engine gets fast, time speeds up in
line with the car and we see the cop cars pull through the
gas station missing the old man who is still walking to the
pump, and they swerve and hit each other just as the whole
gas station blows up.
