When you’re working on a new project, there’s nothing more encouraging than having a solid crew of supporters in your corner. About a year ago, we launched Campus for just that –– it’s a space where creators can connect with one another, ask for advice about hurdles they’re facing, and trade insights into the creative process.Read more
There are 5,841 creative projects to discover, be inspired by, and support on Kickstarter right now. A couple hundred more from around the world will launch before the day is over. They spring from the minds of emerging and established creators of all stripes, and span the creative spectrum. There’s something for everyone. But how can you find the ones that speak directly to you?
Today we're announcing something helps with just that: Recommendations.
We're thrilled to share that two acclaimed, animated Film projects from Kickstarter creators have been recognized by The Academy this year. Congratulations to Charlie Kaufman and Duke Johnson (Anomalisa, nominated for Best Animated Feature) and Don Hertzfeldt (World of Tomorrow, nominated for Best Animated Short) whose groundbreaking films are in the running to win the little gold man. We’ll be crossing our fingers Sunday night as we cheer on these talented Oscar nominees.Read more
To celebrate these nominations, Liz Cook, George Schmalz, and Dan Schoenbrun from our Film team have put together a list of animated works that have influenced them and had lasting personal resonance.
