A few people have asked what exactly the project's funding is for. Basically, the $2000 is what I need to justify the time I'll spend making Episode 4, instead of working. Time is money and animation really eats up time. That, and I can cover the cost of buying that royalty free music, maybe get a better microphone for the monologue, etc.
Also, someone has asled what happens if the project doesn't reach the goal; will you be refunded? Effectively yes, because your card is only charged when the project is a success. All money on Kickstarter is in limbo until success or failure.
Aaaaaand one last thing: if you want an avatar, Kickstarter lets me contact you after the project is successfully funded, so you'll have to wait until then to describe how you want it. It won't delay the episode; I can modify completed animation, chaging regular puppets into backer avatars.
Any more questions? Feel free to message me.
