Hello Beautiful Person!
HURRAH! I reached my push goal of $5000 so Little Foxes will also be a softcover book!!! (Look for the updates for more info.) As soon as the book is available, you can order copies here or at my website. We now return to our regularly scheduled Kickstarter campaign:
I've had a sweet little song in my head for a little over a year now, and it's time to do something about it! I want to make a video that features 100 original fox figures that I'll make from some of the reclaimed wood filling my studio. Each fox will be different in some way--color, body position, type of wood, fashion accessories, etc. (You can see some examples of foxes I've made in the video above.) My new video project will be a combination of stop-action and image animation, and be set to the tune of the late, great Malvina Reynolds' iconic song "Little Boxes."
Well, sort of. I'm going to rewrite the lyrics of the song so the chorus is "Little Foxes" and the new verses will describe the pieces I've made in a humorous and clever way with a nod to recycling and reuse as a way of life. I'm going to have the song recorded by Portland songstress Janet Julian for the video.
I'm not completely new to the animation game--here's one of my favorite stop action videos I made to celebrate my favorite critters to whet your appetite for what's to come:
By backing this project, you can not only watch the completed video online any time you want, but you could own an original piece of it for your very own! My two top tier rewards allow you to grab one of the 100 foxes I'll make for the video, and there's also a lower level pledge to get one of the basic orange and white fox figures I'll make for use in laying out some geometric patterns made up of tiny foxes, sorta like this one below, but more detailed and the background will be seamless!
The geometric fox patterns will be used in the video, and also to create a fabric pattern for bandanna or tea towel rewards! See my update #1 to see what the bandanna design will entail! One more thing about that basic fox pledge--I usually sell these for $50, but they are available for $45 only through this Kickstarter campaign!
I've added another new reward since this project launched--it's for a sitting fox figure with your choice of message painted on the sign! $65 gets you this sweet deal.
As with all my other campaigns, I'll keep you updated as I work on the project via my Kickstarter updates so you can watch it come to life! Thanks everyone for your support of this project!
Risks and challenges
This will be my eighth (!!!) Kickstarter project and I have a stellar track record of completing all of my projects on time. Rest assured, you'll have your reward on your doorstep before you know it.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
