Update#5: A few words from Holly and Mark.

Update#4: POSTER!!!

What does 60 bucks get you these days? Oh I dunno, a custom postcard, a signed copy of Holly's cd, a signed dvd of a cool animated film, oh and this sweet 24"x36" POSTER!!!!!!

Update #1: Day 2 and an outpouring of support!

I'm humbled by the response from both Holly's fans and friends and blown away by the response from my friends new and old, as well as the VFX and Animation community.  We're 21% funded already!!

I would love to get us all under the same roof some time.  Maybe my funeral.  Oh wait....

Run Body Run

Following in the footsteps of Holly McNarland's successful independent

 release, Run Body Run, we are producing an independent animated short based on a painting by Toronto artist Jamie Bennett.

The Film

Directed by Mark Pullyblank, Run Body Run is a coming of age tale that chronicles the struggles of a young heroine who, in her pursuit of ideal conformity, discovers that the traits she rejects are in fact her greatest assets.

Playing on the surreal themes of the painting, and the moody texture of the song, we will combine various animation disciplines bringing together both established artists as well as talented new comers. 

Project Goal

We are working completely independent of record companies or corporate grants.  This way we can work with a more experimental spirit to make a film that compliments these two great works of art.  Funding will go directly toward production costs. The math is simple: the more money we receive, the bigger artist pool we have to draw from.  Our release date is March, 2013, but we can move that deadline up based on funding.

The Rewards

The rewards are a custom fit for fans of Holly's music, songwriters and animators.  Rewards include signed copies of artwork or albums, private instruction for animators through CG Spectrum.com, having your likeness in the film, even a one on one songwriting session with Holly!

Thank you!

Thanks for stopping by and looking us over!  We hope with your contributions we can put together something truly great!
