Technology takes another step forward with this film. We have seen films shot with digital technology. Entire films have been made using computer-generated characters instead of actors. This movie uses a software program that many Internet users and computer people will be familiar with: Macromedia Flash.

In the tradition of Undercover Brother, this movie brings an Internet cartoon out of cyberspace and onto the silver screen. However, unlike Undercover Brother, this film stays true to its animated roots and keeps that format here. Mark Brooks and Peter Gilstrap write and direct this outing of their Internet creation.

The best way that I can think of to describe this movie is an extreme version of South Park. The main character is a nine-year-old kid who calls himself Li'l Pimp (what else?). He lives in a rough neighborhood filled with gangs, druggies, and hustlers. He pimps out his hos in the neighborhood looking to make an easy buck. No details have been released on the story yet, but I'm sure we'll see a lot of the characters in the 'hood.

In addition to Brooks and Gilstrap doing the main voices for the film, they have hired some additional big-name talent to help them out; among them are Carmen Electra, William Shatner, and Bernie Mac. The filming of this project began in March 2001 and has a budget of only $1 million. It shouldn't take much word-of-mouth advertising to make a profit, but you never know with audiences. Even that paltry million dollars could be an unrealistic goal if the movie isn't handled right by the distributor. (Marty Doskins/BOP)
