ATOMIC ROBO: LAST STOP. Seeking funds to finish an animated short based on the award winning Indie comic Atomic Robo.
Dr. Dinosaur is not happy. Read the New Post detailing all new, saurian centric campaign rewards and objectives like the SCOTT WEGENER SKETCH REWARD!!
Do your part for Science! Atomic Robo: Last Stop is an independent animated short based on the popular indie comic Atomic Robo, created by Brian Clevinger and Scott Wegener. The Fictory has logged hundreds of hours in pursuit of finishing this project. We’re close, but we can’t finish this project with out YOU!Our modest goal is to reach $12,000. Not a lot by animation budget standards but it’s just enough for us to wrangle in the last batch of work needed to complete the project.
WATCH THE TRAILER
I ran into Scott Wegener at a comic book convention right as The Fictory was in search of a new animation project to take on. Robo seemed a natural fit for animation and after we worked out the details production got under way.
Soon after production began at The Fictory. Late August of 2010 the Atomic Robo: Last Stop Teaser Trailer was released. The studio was energized and ready to charge forward. Unfortunately/fortunately for the Staff our creative endeavors were beginning to get noticed. Before long we found ourselves busier and busier. Up to this point our schedules allowed us to band together one day a week and volunteer our skills for the good of the project.
As time marched on, we found ourselves buried in work and unable to devote the time Atomic Robo needed and deserved. Neglected, Robo faded quietly into the background biding his time.
We’ve sunk countless hours into this project already. Recently we’ve developed a new found urgency and sense of responsibility to complete and share the animation with the Atomic Robo community.
So we acted on our collective gut, dug in and finished some new shots for an all new Trailer! We’re locked and loaded, we just need a little help from the community to bring Robo to the screen. That’s where you come in.

SPEAKING ENGAGEMENTS AND WORKSHOPS
Speaking Engagement Reward
As well as being founder of The Fictory I am also an adjunct professor at Pennsylvania College of Art and Design where I’m very comfortable with the classroom setting. For this pledge reward I’m available to come in to any animation/art department and talk about what goes into producing Independent animations. Main topics include running a staff of talented artists and designers with a heavy emphasis on how one goes from a student to a professional in a constantly evolving job market. Any questions on specifics and logistics, send them to email@example.comIndependent Animation Crash Course Reward
In addition to the offering speaking engagements I am also available for workshops style engagements. The idea is to offer curriculums a crash course in how The Fictory executes a project. At The Fictory one of our biggest axioms is doing more with less.
In other words, how to organize a small group of
dedicated artists into a studio capable of producing quality animation
to rival a studio twice its size. To that end there will be a heavy
emphasis on getting the most out of a small team of artists. This
workshop would put students together to produce a small animated
project. Instead of the individual producing a short piece alone the
emphasis is on distribution of talent, working out group dynamics and
pooling creative resources to accomplish goals. For specifics and
logistics, send inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org
