      Adorable! Saw it on YouTube this week and loved it. Looks like lots of positive response there too. Congratulations! It should be entered in the Oscar's Best Short Animated category.

      I'm excited to see this film. I'd love to contribute more to boost my pledge, is that possible? I realized I'd love to get the film posters but didn't choose it >.<

      It's crazy that there's almost nothing for younger kids to turn to regarding this topic. I'm aware of the controversy surrounding it in many places but I still think it's sad. I think many kids would feel happy just knowing and SEEING there are other kids and adults like them and it's nothing bad or unusual. But in a way they are used to at their age, like in a cartoon such as this.

      Oh I suppose I can watch it for free but I'm a physical nerd. I hope that someday something like this can become a much longer movie. But I'm not complaining about what you have so far. it looks really good. I hope many people watch it.

      This is such a cute concept. I'm mad I can't afford to buy the actual film because I want to watch it when it's finished...

      hey! I was wondering if the two of you have somewhere else where we can access your work and other things you do. (Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr...)

      Your project clearly has heart and I really can't wait to see the result of this project.
      I was curious as to whether you have considered other stretch goals for your project or even considered for the right goal, extending the length of your Animated Film?

    18. Kiba Walker on


      I was curious as if you were going to be adding any voice over to the characters? I'd totally do this project for free even for the chance to audition for this. I believe highly in your project and I hope I can help bring light to it in some way or another!!!

      Best wishes: Kiba Walker

      This is something that I've been wanting to see happen for a long time, an animated short/film about gender identity or orientation. It's important to the younger generation whom are homosexual to feel comfort and acceptance of their true identities. Thank you for making this project happen.

      Congrats! I am really looking forward to see what is going to be when it's done! A lot of love from a fellow animation student ;)

      Kickstarters can be pretty overwhelming and I have a feeling this will be a heavily supported one, so I hope you both won't feel too overwhelmed by it all and that you both can focus on your project with your whole heart. Good luck to you both!
