About

KREAK

Hi my name is Chris V. Dass and I am a 24 year old Freelancing 2D/3D Animator, with only 4 years of animation school and my own animation short which I funded myself (TT_TT wish I knew about Kickstarter before I started my project but what's done is done and I will be sending it as a submission for the Hamburg and Ottawa Film Festival), but anyway I have all these story ideas trapped in my head and i want to let the world know and so I have written so many ideas and scripts that I want to turn into animated movies and shorts and one of them is "Kreak"

The basic plot of the story is about a boy getting ready to go to sleep when during the night he hears scary noises which wakes him up and now he must discover the source of the noise which results in unfortunate consequences. I have already written the script and now I need to gather people to work on this project, the main focus is on Character Modelling and Rigging. The Background, Background props, Animation, Lighting and texturing can be done by me and I know someone that can do the Character modelling but Rigging seems to be my main hurdle. Since I am applying for the Hamburg Animation Awards with my First Animation short "Barquest" which can be viewed at

so you can get a gauge of my Animation directing talent, this is my Dream to one day Direct Animated movies, If I could work for Disney, I would die a happy man. But I need a lot more experience and would like the great people of Kickstarter to help with my dream I have written and created many creative projects so I don’t want to flood Kickstarter with my crazy Ideas so I have limited them to 3 projects. This is my main focus but I also have a board game I want to create and I have an Idea for a Frozen 2 Movies which I would like to present to Disney, if I can’t work as an animator maybe I could work as a writer. But anyway this is my main focus I will post the other two projects later but please if you want to help out or you like the script please feel free to support my cause all together I need at least $20,000 (More would be awesome but this is the minimum amount I need) manly for Animation programs and hiring people. I’ll be posting updates and changes to the project on my blog next phase is Character Concepts, Background Modelling and Animatic(Storyboard put to music and sound)

Update: I thought it would be better to wait a month before posting this project and show what I can do in a single month which was Character Concepts, Background Modelling and Animatic which I have posted as the video above but here are the Character Concepts and some of the Background Scenes

Credits

I have Storyboarded and turned the Script into an Animatic you can view the video above, however the Animatic is not the final product it's there just to give you the general impression of the story might make the last few scenes a bit longer to give the twist at the end some impact :D 

Risks and challenges

The main Risks and Challenges involving this project is the Character Modelling and Rigging, I have been trained to do everything when it comes to 2D/3D Animation, such as Concepts, Storyboards, Animatics, Animation, Colorist, Editor, the list goes on and on. But I also know my Limits and I know when I need to step aside and ask for help and so i will be hiring modelers and riggers to create the characters for the animation. Another challenge is Animation and Editing Programs while doing my first project I was able to use my old schools programs but not anymore, now i need to either buy some of the Adobe programs or a more expensive approach would be to buy an old Mac computer with the old editing software.
