Thank you for taking the time to view our Kickstarter!

We are a team of 2 Senior Computer Animation students at Ringling College of Art and Design, currently in mid-production on our animated short thesis film "Extinguished."  This film is the culmination of our 4 years of education and passion for learning all about the art of animation. We have worked endlessly to bring a concept very near and dear to our hearts to life; Love can be painful, but we should never fear its potential. We are hoping to inspire and entertain audiences with our film, and we are beyond excited to complete it this Spring.

In order to make this film the best it can possibly be, we need your help to acquire a beautiful and unique score.  Because our film contains no dialogue, a musical score is extremely important to heighten the feeling and pacing of the film. Any donation is greatly appreciated and will help us to hire a talented composer and sound designer! To show how grateful we are, we have also assembled goodies and prizes that come with each donation!

COST OF COMPOSER: $2000

Any additional donations will help us cover the cost of a sound designer and any festival submission/competition fees.

Thank you everyone for your time and support! This project means the world to us and we are excited to share it with you.

Jacob and Ashley

 

 

Risks and challenges

Once this project is funded, we will continue to work our hardest to make "Extinguished" the best it can be. Regardless of the film's funding, and with or without a sound designer and composer, the film will be completed by Spring 2017.
