“The Ice Cream Man” is a song written/performed by Sean Jordan (The Wordburglar) and Peter Chapman, based on the dark comedy feature film project “Ice Cream Man” in development at “Angry Bear Film Productions.”
The Ice Cream Man
A Dark Comedy with a Sweet Tooth
The Feature Film
“With an explosive smile, Johnny dispenses tasty treats to the “wholesome” citizens of his small vacation town. One Saturday shift reveals that all is not well in Johnny’s life. He rebels against the prison that is his job and life, as the musical jingle from his truck slowly drives him towards madness.”
“Angry Bear Film Productions” plans to shoot a music video based on “The Ice Cream Man”. We will introduce you to our Ice Cream Man, Johnny, in the flesh. This high octane musical nightmare will send you spiralling into Johnny’s psyche, and like a shot of adrenaline to the heart, will get you good and pumped for the feature film to come.
A Wicked Collaboration
In the screenplay for the feature film, Johnny has one damn-near-apocalyptic work day. Shitty get’s increasingly shittier with each new conflict that befalls him. The story’s structure is loosely inspired by films such as “Four Rooms” and “National Lampoon’s Vacation”. Each “situation” Johnny finds himself in is unique. It’s Angry Bear’s intention to assemble a kickass team of songwriters to bring three or four original songs to life, ones that reflect each disaster. Let the music embody the unpredictability of Johnny’s day.

Visual Effects Demo
The theme song gives you a taste of what’s to come. The movie will take things to the next level.
The truck’s jingle takes on new life in a visual effects demonstration we created. Remember though, this is just a sample, with the end product, we plan to exceed expectations.
The slides in the vfx demo were created with the 3D storyboarding software “Frameforge Previz” by Angry Bear’s Founder, Chris Griffin.
Music in the “vfx demo” was adapted by Janal Bechthold, based on the classic tune “The Entertainer” by “Scott Joplin” . You can check out Janal’s amazing music at http://www.marcandomusic.com/
The vfx star effect was created by Nikola Panic.
