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!!
First, VanArts, the place that launched my career and introduced me to our concept artist Lih Liau, graciously featured us in an article on their blog and facebook page, http://www.vanarts.com/blog/animation-graduate-directing-new-short-film
Next I got a message from my good friend and founder of Vancouver Animation School, Mario Pochat who requested artwork so he could promote us on his website, http://www.vancouveranimation.ca/
In steps graphic artist Randy Murray who donated his time to design both the banners and the reward posters. We'll be showing those off in the next couple of days.
Finally, Nick Boughen, founder of CG Masters Academy, http://academy.cg-masters.com/ stepped up to offer us the use of his render farm.
Not to mention the flood of support I've received from all the talented artists at Sony Imageworks, Weta Digital, and Goldtooth Creative, as well as some brilliant freelancers who have offered to lend their talents to this project.
I would love to get us all under the same roof some time. Maybe my funeral. Oh wait....
