About this project
Brilliant Bundles is a combination of the two things I love most in this world: Animation and early childhood education. My intention is to take this handmade interactive educational DVD project as far as it can possibly go. Ultimately, after my funding goal is met, Brilliant Bundles Presents Shapes! will be marketed as a package including: DVD, Soundtrack CD, Flash cards, and individual felt boards that have felt characters from the movie that your child can interact with. When you support Handmade, you are supporting love, hard work, and creativity which is something you can truly be proud to own. My goal is to create something completely special that parents can use to bond with their children in a positive educational way. When you teach your child something new, you are really saying to them "I love you and love watching you learn and grow, and you are important to me." As little as even 3 months old your child will understand this!
Creating stop motion animation and motion graphics from handmade felt and paper shapes and characters is something you can look forward to seeing in this film. It will explore triangles, circles, squares, rectangles, hearts, stars and more! The written word will also be included for early letters and sounds recognition. Video will also be included, staring "Bunny" a hand knitted puppet with a very cute and giggly personality. The variety of textures, shapes, colors, and movements will provide your child with a sense that they can touch whatever is on the screen....and with the interactive aids, they can!
Special DVD Features will include language tracks in English and Spanish. DVD insert will contain information/ideas on what you could say or how to interact with your child while watching the film or playing with the interactive aids.
My plan after funding is to start to work right away creating all the materials I will need for animation. After the hours upon hours of animating that will take place, its all on the editing table from there! My intention is to have a finished product in less than one year. Its a HUGE undertaking, but Im more than up to the challenge!
This kick start will fund the following:
Equipment: Digital camera, video camera that doesnt still work off of Hi8 tapes, a decent color printer, lighting equipment that will far surpass the 60 WATT desk lamp I currently use, more RAM and HD space for my computer. Added up, I have researched that at the best prices for what Im looking for, the new equipment will total approximately $6500.00
The remainder of the funding I am asking will pay for:
product supplies: DVD and CD cases, felt board supplies (felt and child safe frames), printed and lamination of flash cards (gotta makes those drool proof) packaging supplies.
Legal: Copyrights, trademarking, legal advise, copyright lawyer if needed
Rewards: *All rewards (except thank you's) to be given out upon completion of project.
For pledge amounts mentioning graphite portraits of your child or person or pet of your choice, here are some examples of the drawings I have done.
For the pledge amount mentioning felt food, these are the foods you will receive!
for the top pledge who gets Bunny
When marketed and sold, the proceeds from this DVD will go towards my daughter's education, and the ability for us to really start our lives on our own.
Thanks again for all your support, it means the world to my little family and I.
