    You are a classic 2D super-supporter! At this level, you start getting some of the BIG stuff. You will get one of our hottest and biggest premiums, our movie music and movie sound clips CD. Not only do you get all the previous rewards (not the T-shirt,sorry) you are now getting (approx.) 40 minutes of Miracle Mouse custom written and orchestrated music and features. This music makes you feel like you traveled back in time to see a blockbuster classic 2D movie. You can almost "see" the lush hand-drawn animation! Really, where else can you get music from a movie's soundtrack, long BEFORE the movie even hits the theatres? This special (kickstarter only) CD, also features short audio commentaries by Miracle Mouse creator Tom Hignite to explain each music selection, and set up two key dialog and action scenes from the actual movie! Listen to American iconic actor, Oscar winner Ernest Borgnine's last performance, as well as iconic celebrity impersonator Rich Little's full dramatic scene as he portrays Ernest Borgnine's character Cranky Crane. The CD box depicts a few of the movie's scenes and is art in itself! Not available anywhere else AND...if you are a GLEE fan of 3-time Emmy and Golden Globe award winner Jane Lynch, listen to this. We hesitated but are releasing the first recording of GLEE's Jane Lynch, singing the lovely "Do You Believe" from the movie's end credits. You will listen to this lively and inspiring music just because it is SO GOOD!

    Can't get enough 2D? We feel the same way! If you want it "all" (all items up to this point, that is, including the T-Shirt) we'll even throw-in one more little gem. Have you ever seen those pirate stiff paper/cardboard folding party hats? We did and wanted to create our own version, only instead of this being a pirate hat, this is custom die cut which is shaped like Miracle Mouse's "hard hat" and half-circle ears! There is even a little illustration of Miracle Mouse himself on the hat and an open oval to write your name. It is easy to just fold once then wear. Full printed color, one size fits-all. Let 2D "go to your head". Sure to be a collectors item one day! GET IT ALL.

    You've made it this far" up the 2D ladder" and we don't want to disappoint you for making the climb with us. Starting at this level, you get the full color, American printed, gorgeously hand illustrated, (we tried our feet and it didn't look so good) hard cover, gold embossed type on the cover, "Miracle Mouse Cranky's Miracle" hard cover keepsake book and CD combo. 32 pages of art and story-telling. This is a baseline story of the entire movie, told in a child-like simplified manner. As seen in the kickstarter Tom Hignite video, this combo CD is NOT the Movie soundtrack regular CD but rather a single song of "Do You Believe", with both a vocal version as well as a sing-along (music only) version and a short message from Tom Hignite and Miracle Mouse himself! This is not the Jane Lynch sung version, but rather a professional female singer who sounds a lot like a certain animated princess. See if you can "guess who?"
    A limited number are now available and are no longer available anywhere else! "Read "the movie (well, almost). This book was/is also used by all Miracle Mouse artists as their style guide and even has reprints of Miracle Mouse and Okey Doky model sheets printed inside the cover!
    All books will be signed by Tom Hignite. A "can't miss" Christmas gift! (delivery allowing, of course)

    Pledge $200 or more About $200

    Own an original piece of 2D hand drawn art, suitable to frame and hang. With the age of the computer animated movies, this type of offering has not been around for many years. For this level of reward, you will receive an original, animator's cleaned-up drawing (that is the type that has been refined and is the final drawing before the coloring process), of one of the main characters of either Miracle Mouse, Okey Doky, or Cranky Crane. You will also recieve a rough layout of the finished background line art. The original illustration will either be signed by a studio animator who did the animation, or (if the animator is no longer available) by Tom Hignite.
    This level also includes the special music and audio tracks CD, and the hard cover book with autograph.
    This is a fantastic opportunity, a chance to have a work of original art from a 2D production,which may increase in value, a guaranteed 2D animation conversation starter. A great support level for gift-givers and still arriving before Christmas! (If the "mailman" is on his game)

    Get everything in the $1,150 package AND also get a 12 page, full color pitch booklet that was used to pitch Miracle Mouse to possible studios as either a movie or a possible television show! This book shows character-bio pages, actors involved (at that point in 2011 Borgnine and Lynch were not yet attached), background samples, artists involved, and CD and DVD copies. The CD is of the music (same as the music on the main CD but formatted without the commentaries and Jane Lynch singing and without clips), and a short DVD "Sizzle" video reel to promote the film. The fronts of these discs are printed with the large face of Miracle Mouse and the large face of Okey Doky. They are put into pockets on the back inside cover of the pitch book and their art blends into the page art.

    This also includes what is called a "one-sheet" which is used to be a condensed version of the pitch booklet, put onto one, 2-sided full color page. Both are signed by Tom Hignite. Most items will be shipped in December but some may lag to January. And we almost forgot, one more bonus applies to this and all levels above this. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel did a front page article all about Miracle Studios and this project back in 2005. A limited quantity of these newspapers are available and you get one complete with current autographs from Tom and the staff artists. How cool is that?

    For just a little more than the last level, you can get two additional items that you can not get on any other level. In Tom's video, he showed the Miracle Mouse coloring books. These have become one of the rarest Miracle Mouse collectibles under the Miracle roof. In fact, Tom had to use a partially colored one to show in the video! That is how popular they are/were. We found a VERY few pristine copies and this is THE only level of reward that gets them. The other big collectible item you get, starting with this level is another very limited supply item. It is not in Tom's video, so read carefully.
    Imagine small (we mean child-sized) white T-shirts, with plastic hangers that also have packaged 5 colored art markers on them. The front of each shirt has black art outlines on them printed with either an image of Miracle Mouse's upper body in a circle. He is looking at you and has one hand doing a "thumbs-up" pose. Type above and below the circle image reads MIRACLE MOUSE. On the backside of the shirt is a MIRACLE logo. This is a shirt your kids can color and then wash the color out and color all over again!
    The second design has a Miracle type big word across the top which is being held up by a (image of) Miracle Mouse. Miracle Mouse is being held-up by his best buddy Okey Doky the beaver. The MIRACLE logo is also on the back of this shirt.
    This level will recieve one of these 2 shirts, of our choosing, as supplies last. Don't expect an adult to fit into one of these child-sized rewards, but every adult will find these A VERY fun item no matter the size! Tom Hignite will autograph each shirt in his signature permanent green sharpie marker pen. Once they are gone, they are gone...forever!

This bigger increase is going to be buying you everything you get in the reward level for $1,500 but here's the one a lot of 2D fans have been waiting for. The backgrounds! One of your 2 sets of triple-character hand-drawn animation scenes, will not just have a copy of the production background, but it will have the actual hand drawn background layout used to make those copies! Each background in Miracle Mouse takes several full days to illustrate and it is that line illustration that goes to the colorist. These are original art backgrounds, partnered with he original art, hand drawn animation. Each signed by the artist. Some of the backgrounds have several levels to give the look of depth and these levels (if applicable) are also included!

    There we go again! A bigger jump in reward values, but what a great item is added! You get everything in the $1,500 reward level, but here you get a hand tooled fiberglass model of Miracle Mouse himself. Miracle Studios had one (and only one) custom Miracle Mouse character model sculpted by Christain Lau, a notable California sculptor. Miracle also bought his molds he created for this sculpture (and his friend Okey Doky, but we will get to that on another reward level). We have a great area source who will custom make you an identical copy of Miracle Mouse in sturdy fiberglass (removable tail) on a wood stained base. The paint color is green-gray solid color, much like the smaller Disney Fantasia 2000 maquette which Tom shows in the rewards video. This is the traditional color for studio figures. These are used in-studio to see how the character might look from differing angles . Bottoms of the base will be signed by Tom Hignite in his green sharpie to you personally in your choice of dedication phrases/names. The rest of the rewards will be shipped right away, but character sculptures will be custom made and sent in either late January or early February.

    Become a part of the movie itself! Appear in the opening scenes as a character in the main street area. Your likeness will be designed to resemble one of the good folks of Merrywater Meadows. Maybe you will be the bicycle riding bear who waves at Jane Lynch's Mrs. Gander character. Maybe you will be one of the cats crossing the street and playing in their Mom's skirt. You might be a shop keeper , just opening their doors for the day. After you are animated into the scene (we will use your photograph to create your likeness), you get to see it, and have input prior to production of the scene. You get to keep the entire stack of all drawings of your character. Each will be signed by the lead animator for your scene. You will also get a copy of the production background which appears in your scene, as well as 20 full color frame captures of the scene for you to display along with some of your character drawings.
    You also get the CD, the hard cover book, custom T-shirt, 27 minute story reel with survey, a reserved front row seat at the private screening, and (take a deep breath) a special screen credit directly aside your character's name (which you get to create as well).
    And...you don't have to wait until the movie comes out to get your animation on video. You will get an early release every step of the way along the path, via computer e-mails. When the rough animation is done, you will get that sent to you. When the clean-up phase is done , you will get that as well. When the scene is colored, you will also get that. You will have a full progression of "you" from concept to screen. The delivery of this will be sometime in 2013 for the finished scene of your character being colored and acting your part in the film.

    The same as in the $5,000 level of awards but you recieve a private showing of the story reel brought to your (sorry mainland North America and Canada only) town by Tom Hignite and played at a hotel conference screening room for you and your friends, with up to 50 guests! This includes lunch on us, buffet style! Tom Hignite and at least one principle animator will be hosting your private party and a special "party gift " will be provided for each guest. Oh, you are still invited to the Hollywood screening too, with reserved seat privilages for you and up to 4 guests, if you wish to join that party too! Same delivery as the $5,000 rewards level. (not the parties, of course, that will need to be custom scheduled)

    Ta-Da!
    You've hit the top. You get everything from the $1,000 reward level and the same shipping time. You also get the full movie painted colors on the Miracle Mouse and Okey Doky fiberglass statues with signed bottom bases. and a special credit on the closing credits as Chief producers of finance. You also get one key scene of all of the art for at least 2 characters and the original background for that scene's layout. You will "win" the assets for a whole scene. That is literally hundreds of original drawings of main characters and the base art for the background they appeared in. The sheer man hours spent in creating this art, and the values for each drawing FAR outweigh the dollar value of this reward. This scene will be at least 15 seconds in length. At 24 frames per second, and using 2 characters (that doubles the number of drawings), you do the math!
    You will also get a front row reserved seat for both the story reel presentation but also for the eventual movie release premier. Delivery of such awards can not be stated at this time. And now the topper. A full color Miracle Mouse poster with one incredible bonus. The entire cast of voices, including the late great Ernest Borgnine and Jane Lynch's personal autograph signatures directly over their character image. Only several of these posters have ever been signed and this may very well be one of Borgnine's last autographs.
