Just moments ago we passed the $1,000 mark in our fundraiser for the creation of the short film Moon Bear!
And that means, someone very special has just won the “break a thousand” prize! Well…not really someone… more like 2 someones! Thank you to Terri and Wayne Leonard of Durham, N.C. for your donation! And as promised here is your prize…
To find out more please visit our kickstarter.com website where you can read, hear, listen and eventually donate!
Enjoy this article about the process of Moon Bear on the A113Animation Blog…. HERE and Article #2 HERE!
You read that right. To the lucky person who donates and gets us over that $1,000 mark will get their very own name hidden somewhere interesting in the Moon Bear Short Film. So imagine, you’re sitting there eating a snack, watching the short and all of a sudden you see your name scribed onto the side of a tree, or a butterfly flies by with your name on its wing. Anything!
So keep sharing! If you haven’t donated yet but have seen all of these posts, you should know how serious we are about making this short a great one! Take out that credit card and give a dollar, who knows, you just might see yourself in this movie!
there will be no podcast this weekend, because of some busy busy fun things happening with the podcast and with my life. I’ve got some grand auditions coming up as well as getting my Moon Bear animated short film funded. Which if you haven’t heard about, please look down below for the article on Moon Bear and share it! Share the kickstarter campaign!
Thank you again for being such great listeners and such loyal friends. Hope to see you next week.
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!
Back while i was recording Episode 3 with Ben Carbo, Vinnie Duyck and Hallie Cooper, you never knew this, but there was another person behind the scenes. Her name is Whitney Bashaw and she stayed at my place a few nights to chill and hang out before she went off to do more amazing things. So Whitney, Ben, Hallie, Kai, and Vinnie, all of us got to work on the podcast and have a great time together.
While she was here she experienced the podcasting from behind the microphone and played with us and was an all around awesome friend.
Well I have just received a letter from her, written to me, but I found it so sweet and it speaks so well to the mission of this podcast that I thought i should share it with our listeners. I hope you dont mind I’m doing this Ms. Whitney. I love you so much. Thank you for joining the podcast family.
