Risks and challenges

As with all ambitious endeavours comes the risk of falling short. In actuality, creating a 3-to-5 min sequence of an animation film of this proportion should cost at least three times the financial kickstarter goal we’ve requested. We are happy to inform you that the French National Board of Cinema (the CNC) fully supports our project as of a few weeks ago and will also contribute to the funding. Between your generosity and the CNC’s donation, finding the remaining sum will seem entirely possible and we are more than confident that our project will see the light of day.

Of course, we also have the option to shorten the length of our pilot if unexpected funding issues arise or if we are faced with unforeseen overages. The one thing we will never cut down on is the final render of each second of the pilot - it shall be impeccable and set to the highest standards!

We are still dumbfounded by the amazing team that has pulled together to make this project happen, only encouraging us to reach for the stars. Our determination knows no boundaries.
