CANVAS centers around a grandfather who is trying to regain his inspiration after suffering a loss.
This story is something we can all relate to. Sometimes in life things happen that make it hard for you to keep fighting for what you love. It's not so much a matter of ability, but rather a testament to the will of the human spirit. We can all find strength and creativity in the most surprising places and this story exemplifies that.
Making an animated film is hard work. Everything from art to the final product takes tons of effort from talented people. We're hoping to raise at least $40,000 to get us through the production and post-production process. We have a stretch goal of $55,000 to make this the best quality film as it can possibly be. This project is extremely near and dear to our hearts and we hope you can help us bring it to life!
This project is such a collaborative effort. We've put together a team from all over the world of incredibly talented artists and each of them have brought something special to the film.

Risks and challenges
One of our biggest challenges is trying to plan for the unexpected. With such a large team, and such a technical process, things are always bound to creep up unexpectedly. We've done our absolute best to prepare for these things, but won't be able to do so without reaching our goal amount!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
