About this project

WE'RE FUNDED!

Huge thank yous' and back slaps to everyone!! All your support has meant so much to us, and it's the only reason this has been possible!

Since we're funded with time to spare, we've had to add some stretch goals! Take a peek below:

---------------

Baman Piderman is a goofy, all-ages, traditionally animated series on Mondomedia created by Lindsay and Alex Small-Butera. Full of friendship, absurdity, and a somewhat disconcerting level of continuity, Baman Piderman is a unique animated labor of love that has been weirding people out since 2008.There are 23 total episodes in the first two seasons; Watch them all right here:

Baman Piderman was always meant to be a story that has a satisfying ending! When the series got put on hold last year, the show ended abruptly before the final five episodes of the second season, leaving a lot of loose ends. If our goal is reached, we'll be able to devote all our work time again to finishing these final five episodes, including the super long final episode. Not only that, but we'll be able to pay for really great music and help! If funded, the episodes will begin airing in September! We are also really excited we can now offer Baman Piderman merch for the very first time super exclusively to backers of the kickstarter!

Baman Piderman is all about the fans. We've never been able to offer cool stuff like this before, and we're really happy that people will finally be able to get official Baman Piderman goodies! Rewards will ship in October, with the exception of Pumkin Plushie tiers, which will ship in December. Here's what you can get:

Risks and challenges

As a team, we forged a disconcerting animation alliance back when we were in school studying for our animation degrees in Boston. Since then, we've been professionals in the animation industry for over 6 years now, working for both studios and freelance. Our clientele is peppered with many animation powerhouses, but by far our favorite thing we've ever worked on is our pet project, Baman Piderman.

One of the challenges in creating fully animated content for the web is time, finding funding, and manpower hours. When we left our job to work on the show full time with internet animation hub Mondomedia, somehow we were managing to churn out 5 minute episodes of the series every two weeks with only two people working. At 15 hand drawn frames per second, you can get an idea of how much sleep we were getting. We're fast, dedicated to quality, and we love our medium with all our hearts. Being able to work on the show with a modest budget to hire people for the things we're not the best at (like music, and merch!) is like a dream, and we're so excited to have much more time to make the send off episodes of the show the as awesome as they can be.
