We are Kaiya, Seth and Ellen, aka Third Wheel Productions. Currently seniors at Ringling College of Art and Design, we are studying Computer Animation.
Welcome to our Kickstarter for our senior thesis film, Wishing Cranes!
We are launching this Kickstarter to raise $2000 to fund our production costs of our thesis project.
Wishing Cranes is an three and a half minute long 3D animated short film about Yuki and Sho, two orphan siblings living in Japan in the 1960s. Sho is a responsible brother and a hardworking paper boy, Yuki, his younger sister simply wishes she could spend more time as a family.
We are excited to share the adventures of these two siblings with you as we set sail to complete our film this May. While we have completed storyboards, visual development, models and animation so far, in these past weeks we have just begun the post-production process of our film where we light, render, composite and produce the sound and score for the film.
We are looking to raise the $2000 to cover the costs of an original score for our film as well as sound design. Any additional fund received form this Kickstarter will go towards film festival entry fees.
This film is being produced at The Ringling College of Art and Design, feel free to check out the previous thesis films produced by recent graduates on vimeo.
Don't forget to check out our awesome rewards to the right and we hope you decide to help us out on our journey as we take our first step to become professional in Animation and VFX industry.
Thank you for visiting our Kickstarter and be sure to watch out for our film's online premiere in the Summer of 2017.
Ellen, Seth and Kaiya
