About this project

In Sequence is an animated project I've been working on for over a year now, spending countless late nights refining my concepts and animation skills. I've come out the other side and am ready to create a fully realized film and need help to make it happen.

I've been creating animations since 2006 when I made my first short film by painting on an 8mm film reel. I later moved into stop-motion and digital animation, but this new work is my first attempt to fully dive into the traditional animation process.

 

My process begins with a script that establishes the characters, dialogue, and the world that they live in. I then create a storyboard that outlines camera shots and character movements, and allows me to understand the pace and rhythm of the scenes. Each frame of the film is drawn by hand on either paper or a digital tablet with Toon Boom Harmony and then is imported into Adobe After Effects for effects and compositing, and Adobe Premiere for editing.

 

I also create original scores using a custom built modular synthesizer, viola, keyboards, and a variety of other sounds tools.

 

 

In Sequence is about an intellectual parasite that infests the consciousness of a community and its attempt to find enlightenment in the face of misinformation and general confusion about the nature of the external world. It's about the power of parasitic concepts and their ability to create a cultural inversion that we are experiencing in our present day political and social environment.

I have the script, preparatory work, most of the score, and many assets completed, so the entire film would be created over the course of a 6 month period starting June 2017. The first few weeks would be dedicated to pre-production, which would consist of recording video and audio on a sound stage with professional actors. The next 4 1/2 months would be committed to the drawing and digital coloring of every frame of the picture. The final month would be for editing, compositing, effects, and sound design. I am very dedicated to this film and would fully commit to countless days and nights to make this project a reality.

If this campaign is successful I will be able to acquire the equipment rental, engineers, studio time, and production assistance required to fully realize my vision. I have been accepted into a residency program in Leipzig Germany that would provide the assistance that would allow me to collaborate with artists and actors on a sound-stage and properly record the audio and video that would be used as the foundation of this project. I will be drawing all of the frames in the animation myself, but will need help as most films are created with a large team and there are many steps in the animation pipeline that are tremendously labor intensive. My goal of $7,000 will cover the basic production costs but the project would take longer to complete as I will be on my own during much of the process. My stretch goal of $10,000 represents the actual cost to complete the film within a 6 month timeline.

$1,300 - Kickstarter rewards and fees.                                                    

$3,400 - Pre-Production/Residency Costs - To fund equipment rental, soundstage, engineers and actors.                                                           

$800 - Travel.                                                                                             

$2,500 - Production Costs - To fund compositing, effects, and digital color.  

$2,000 - Post-Production costs - To fund sound design, editing, and professional type treatments.

Risks and challenges

I have familiarized myself with every stage of the animation process and have prepared extensively. If the campaign is successful there will be no unexpected expenses or technical issues large enough to stall or hinder the production and I do not foresee any complications or risks worth mentioning. Worst case scenario I take an extra month to make changes or redo/add a scene to make it perfect. I am fully committed to this process and will be putting my whole life into the production of this film.
