For the first time, I'm using animation to satirize a president. TRUMP BITES is a new series of one-minute animated fantasies based on actual Donald Trump audio clips from speeches and interviews. The first three episodes premiered today on the New York Times website. Here's the link to watch them:
I'm working with Billy Shebar and David Roberts of 110th Street Films to produce these. We want to keep making new episodes until Trump's no longer president, but we can't do this without your help! Please support our new Kickstarter campaign.
As always, thanks for helping me stay independent.
I'm sure many of you have seen and some of you have backed my friend Signe Baumane's new animated feature film on Kickstarter. Now there's only 48 HOURS left in this campaign to complete "My Love Affair With Marriage" and we still have to raise almost $45,000!
Backers, friends, PLEASE SHARE the KickstartMarriageFilm.com link. Tell everyone you know in the animation community and press. But, most of all, please PLEDGE any amount you can afford.
We lose everything at 10 a.m. THIS Friday if we fall short by even one penny and we CANNOT let that happen. This is a true INDEPENDENT film and funding for projects like this is nearly impossible, but it's even harder for women in animation. "My Love Affair With Marriage" is the ONLY animated feature film being directed by a woman right now. If we don't rally to show Signe our support, it will make it even harder for woman in the future!
With your support I know we can do this!
PLEASE, go pledge and ask your friends to go pledge NOW at KickstartMarriageFilm.com.
If you can spare a few dollars, PLEASE help support the great Signe Baumane's new animated film on Kickstarter! She has a long way to go.
My friend and 'Stranger Things' star, Matthew Modine, just joined the project to help her out.
Even $1 gets the backer number up, so everything helps!
