About

This is a story of a little alien creature named Buba, who came here with a single purpose – to explore our world. It is not as simple though…Because of total misunderstanding of our way of life and his infinite curiosity he gets into ridiculous and funny kind of troubles. But how will he handle them? No one knows, even he himself…

Buba is a kid after all; he is unpredictable, curious, mischievous, cute, and kind (even when he gets mad). His attention is drawn by all things or objects, especially those ones that would never draw our own attention. For each of those objects he finds an absolutely irrational use, and that’s where his troubles start…

While watching yet another show about aliens, we asked ourselves – why are they so scary and terrifying? Why do they want to destroy our world? Why are they necessarily smarter than we are? And why do we hate them? That’s when we came up with idea of making our own version of an alien. Let him be plump and silly, sweetie and squabbler, clumsy and funny. Urge to create such a character was so strong that the next day we pulled out our stash and started all the preparations…

The main challenge for us was to design the character. We understood clearly: to be recognized among thousands of other characters Buba has to be simple enough in his form. We want both children and adults to love Buba. We rejected the idea of Buba speaking in the series, so all the series will be made in pantomime stile. Buba is a kid, so all his emotions, thoughts and intentions will be clearly reflected in his actions, movements, and facial expressions.

As a background a special music track corresponding to the spirit of the series will be composed. Besides, the character and surroundings would be accompanied by comical sounds, noises, effects as accents for drawing attention of public or adding a bit of intrigue.

In design of entourage we refused realistic backgrounds. We consider creation of exaggerated surroundings in style of stage scenery to be a good idea because it won’t distract viewers from the action on screen, and at the same time, the sense of environment, where the character acts, will remain. Plus, it gives the series appropriate style of cartoon, which we aspire to.

We need your support in creation of first 5 episodes 3 minutes each (general length - 15 minutes). Your financial support will be used to hire new members for our team, and will give us a possibility to work on our dream full-time (which we can’t afford at the moment). Our time estimation is 7-8 months to get the series done.

However, we believe that the only possible factor, limiting the number of episodes, is fantasy or budget. We truly hope that when 15 minutes of the series are done we’ll be able to get support from the government or private investors to continue the full-length series 60-75 minutes long (20-25 episodes). 

To give a full impression of the project we made a demo reel, which goal is to show you the character in motion (animation), his temper, general visualization, atmosphere, and surroundings:

Our team is located in Ukraine, in Kyiv city. Unfortunately, in our country animation develops not so well, and the reason behind it is lack of financial support of investors and government, not lack of talented people. Many of them leave for other countries to take part in interesting projects, gain experience, and feel the pleasure from work. We do want the industry to prosper in our country. All the material you have seen was created for our own savings and in free from official work time, but unfortunately, it takes too long to get it done.

We'd like to thank people who created such a site as KICKSTARTER and people who let many interesting projects and ideas live! That’s why we are here – to let our project live too.

Dear visitors, we address you as people who appreciate creativity and are creative themselves – it is very important for us not only to have your financial support but your opinion, ideas, and advices, because that’s you who are our viewers and who we do this all for. Join us, and together we will make the world a kinder and funnier place!

Thanks to everybody who visited our page.

We wish you every luck, health, and happiness!

Risks and challenges

Now we are finishing preparations, scenario, scene selection, and animatics. If a minor delay happens – the only reason for it is the desire to make the series more beautiful and funny. We hope you will understand and forgive :) However, we will keep all the Backers informed via our facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/BUBA.animation
