I’m Making An Animated Short Film

This Week I’ve Launched a New Fundraiser to Get This Story Animated!


Hello Podcast Listeners

As you may heard me say on the podcast before I am an enormous fan of animation, thats Disney, Pixar, Cartoon Network, all of those mind blowing animated companies. So it probably comes as no surprise to you that i plan to direct animated features in the future. As a paying job! Thats right, ever since in college where i learned how animation was made, i’ve wanted to make one of my very own. It’s so neat!

Well, now I’m giving myself that chance! I’m revamping a 29 page children’s book i wrote and illustrated in college called Moon Bear, giving it a make-over, and flipping it around into a fully colored hand drawn animated short film!




This week, I launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise the funding necessary for this rather long animated endeavor. And boy am I excited about it! With your help and the help of our friends and family we can raise our goal in only a month!

And remember, Check back on the weekend for another great episode of The Scotty Jo Podcast

Thanks for listening

    • Thank you good sir! I’m planning on doing original 1930’s style hand-drawn and inked animation. I want to feel what it must have felt like to literally paint every single picture. It’s an endeavor but i will be sharing my process with the world so i thought it might be a fun experience for others as well. Please share if you can! This project means the world to me. 🙂

    • This is awesome! Thank you so much! The more we share, the more people will see it, and the better chance Bear has of becoming real! 🙂
