Here's the problem, I dont have a good PC, no professional software, no professional sound, no graphics pad, and no funds to buy upgrades. If you take a look over at James McVinnie https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCah8NTcZ1Ct5ElESx5cQRlQ her has professional content and is hired by valve to work on animations and maps.
The solutions to these problems?
I have accessed all of my resources that are available and I've decided that the nice community of Kickstarter can help my dream come true
(up above is a poster I made quickly in Source Film Maker)Although most projects don't make it very far, I hope this one will. I want from the community to support my passion of making animations. You know that feeling when you finish something you worked hard on? That's the feeling i get when I make animations and posters.
Where do I live?
I live in San Jose, CA. I've always lived here and its where I enjoy most of my time. The only problem is that it's hard to get a job so that's one of the reasons I want to make animations on the internet.
Why do I make animations?
I enjoy make animations and It would help me get into a better college because I present them at high school. Colleges bring a lot into consideration when they give scholarships and my teacher agreed to let me have this count as art and it gets me school credits, which I need 220 of. We are part of a program called IB which gives more advanced courses and get you more suited for college better than some other schools.
What will the money be used for?
The money will be used for adobe programs, a microphone for voice lines,other small parts, and a new PC(my old one died).
Have you ever felt that feeling that nobody really cares about what you do or make? Well I get that all the time, my family and friends don't ever care or even understand what I am talking about when I talk about making these creations.
You have the option to donate and it is really appreciated, each donation gets me a little closer to reaching my goal. And even my 3 little brothers get to use it:). I hope you donate, this took a lot of courage to ask for help.
Risks and challenges
The challenge I see before me is getting my school time to work with my animation time. I shall solve this by working on my projects while at school in the computer lab.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
