Hey whats up!
Long time no see--write--right? lol
Buisy times. Anyway, I am working for an indi production crew as a storyboarder(ist?) for an up and comming indi short film titled Peter Plan. It's a story about a man named Peter who plans everything to the minuet. He plans everything and have every measurement of time in his control to the point he is alienating his fiance Zoe. After their big breakup something magically happens to the world in one moment in the worst and greatest way possible.
The storyboards I created became an animatic for the introduction spot for kickstarter.com. In it Matt describes the story and the cost to create a short film. What is fortunate about Kickstarter.com is it is a place where people can donate funds to projects in the art community. From arts and crafts, to comic books/graphic novels, and even short films like Peter Plan can find individuals like us to financially back projects outside of the big studios.
Not that anythings wrong with big studios, they're so busy making sequels to movies l like and well...you know. lol They're weary funding indi or first time projects rightfully. They're out to make a profit first and if they can make art or something original that's a big plus but money comes first the majority of the time.
The drawback is the project sets a goal to reach in order to receive the funds it needs in a limited amount of days. For example if my goal is $100 bucks to print some graphic novels I have 30 days for the public to fund $100 to my project. In that 30 days if everybody donated 100 bucks I'm good however if everybody only donated $99.99 in the thirty days donations are open to the public the funds is not released. Not good!
The goal for Peter Plan to complete on Kickstarter.com is $10,000. So far a lot of generous people donated $8,984 out of $10,000. That is really great but the project is approximately 10% to plan completion.
Why is this important for me? Well, if you like my artwork and you want me to succeed and create more artwork for the movie you should check out the Peter Plan Kickstarter Page. If you have some spare change think about donating--even a dollar helps! If you're in a bind that's okay too. In this economy everyone strapped one way or another. But if you take the time to spread the word about Peter Plan that's the best donation anyone can give!

And think about it!
