The Wild Called Maxx is the story of Max, a young and progressive woman, who is having trouble merging her creative identity with her lifestyle. She leaves her traditional job in the suburbs and journeys to the city. The unknown jungle of the metropolitan New York, full of monsters, is overwhelming to Maxx at first. Over time she finds ardent friends willing to help her find her creative voice.
The story is told through live music written by Whitney George and performed by The Curiosity Cabinet with special bass trombone soloist Russ Zokaites. Original artwork by Sammy Lopez will feature illustrated slides for each scene, creating a monstrous urban jungle fit for the 21st century. Showcasing popular monsters like vampires, werewolves, and zombies in combination with strong and vibrant colors will help create and shape Maxx's revolutionary world of discovery.
