I've finally made my Patreon page live!
It's setup to help me put my money where my mouth is. That is, try a business model that could help me get my little film made.
For years I've felt that the great thing about classical animation is the amount of drawings created to make the end product. If you use paper, then the argument of digital scarcity goes away. An idea I've held to since 2008.
I've got the technology in place, the work flow down, and the story to tell. And, most crucial, the time! Well, some time.
If you're at all interested in seeing this happen, please go to patreon.com/tobor68 and support me for as little as $1US a month.
Here's what you'll get in exchange: access to the "patrons only" blog and some original art from the film's production.
The Patron's blog will also feature tutorials on how I do things. I'll upload them as the production progresses detailing steps I'm taking to get the short film made. This way you can learn from my mistakes and successes. Think of it as an online school that costs $1 a month.
At higher tiers you'll get original art, animation drawings, postcards, and monthly video conferencing. Or, if you want to be an Official Sponsor of the film, you can do that too!
It's going to get crazy detailed. Maybe even embarrassing. And, hopefully, fun!
