LAST DAYS EXCLUSIVE REWARDS!!! (NOV 30 - DEC 03 )

Processing all the render data in one computer, would take us 390 days, that´s why we need a render farm , to process all the information.
And finally we will need to make the post-production (Color correction, sound mixing, music score)
What happen if we don´t reach our Goal?
Here, on Kickstarter it is everything or nothing. If we do not reach the goal, all the money stays with the sponsors, and we don´t recibe anything. Making us our journey a lot harder and longer.
What happen if we reach our Goal and more?
We are going to be really thankful with all of you, and all the extra will be used to pay every people involved, the part they deserve. We will be able to improve a lot of details. And send the shortfilm to different film festivals. And even start different animation projects.
