About

Do you know that kid who can turn a fish bowl into a space helmet? A stick into a sword? A tree into a castle? That kid is Mobius!

Mobius is an incredibly adventurous 8 year old, who loves nothing more than to escape his hum-drum, fish and chips, tea and toast village in rural England and go on expeditions that almost every kid dreams of.

This is the show that tells of a boy that goes to the furthest reaches of his imagination and still has to come back home and wash the dishes – he needs pocket money if he's ever going to afford a spacecraft that's not made out of a canoe, right? It's a show that’s light-hearted, sweet and full of humour that both kids and adults get.

Mobius is the creation of Jack Tilley, an award winning animator who recently graduated from the world-renowned National Film and Television School. He's planning some epic adventures for Mo and we want to produce 8 really slick, rewatchable cartoons to make up a first season. By making them independently, we can guarantee you'll be buying into a pure creator-driven experience!

A new and exciting show, needs a new and exciting platform and we wanted to make a show that can be viewed while you're on-the-go. Mini Screen Pictures is a new Digital production company that specialises in making and distributing programmes exclusively for smartphones and tablets. 

The exclusivity works really well for Mobius, because in this day and age, parents are always looking to provide entertainment for their kids while they're on the move. The best part is that Mobius is a family show that parents can watch with their children as well. Entertainment for all!!

Distributing them on mobile devices also means that cartoon fans can always have episodes to hand. If we're able to raise enough money, we'll be able to make the show to distribute weekly through our shiny new app (available on iOS and Android) - which you'll be able to stream or download depending on how you wish!

Having had the original web-comics made by Jack, we needed an animation studio to be able to take the show beyond the page and onto the screen. 

We've lined up a great Animation Studio in London called Karrot who would love to collaborate with and support Jack, spending the hours, days, weeks and months it'll take to make all 8 episodes.

Having made stuff for CBeebies (their own show, Sarah & Duck), Cartoon Network, Angry Birds as well as corporate material for Vodafone, Dell and Universal Music, you can be sure this show will be made by some of the best animators around!

Check! We've got some awesome rewards  - all of which enable you to watch the First Series! But the show is only the beginning - we've got everything from desktop wallpapers to cuddly toys. There's loads of different rewards that'll suit everyone from kids and adults, to entertainment junkies and comic fans so check them out!

We also plan to use stretch goals - both to achieve and exceed our funding target. This is where we'll update you with a list of different funding numbers, that mean if we hit that target - you'll get some more cool rewards, without having to donate an extra penny/cent. It'll help us make Mo the very best it can be, to spread the word about Mobius to new fans and give as many rewards to backers as possible!! 

We would forever be in you debt if you could help us and donate – Even pre-ordering the series for £2 will get us closer to our goal of making some excellent cartoons to deliver straight to your hands when complete, but we hope the other rewards will tempt you further. Thanks in advance for you belief and support!

Risks and challenges

Something that we were very concious of when adding up the rewards and posting and packaging costs was how we can get lots of individual components to people - most of whom may not be based in the UK!

The solution we've come up with is to order certain amounts of rewards from different suppliers around the world, where applicable, and distribute independently to cut P&P costs!

For example, we will order the headphone splitters to be shipped to America, but will analyse where people have backed from and order an appropriate amount of stress balls, stickers and posters from suppliers in that respective country. So we don't have to ship everything to the UK, then back out to backers across the world. We can get the required amount of rewards made in that specific country and then ship direct to your front door!

This way, more money that you're able to donate can go towards the production of the show!
