Created by Glincon, DAILY BAKE is a 3D animated series that’s looking to create a new standard within the entertainment and news broadcasting industry. As the world’s first 3D animated news platform, DAILY BAKE brings you your required dose of news, re-baked just to your liking. For the first time ever, 3D animated characters will present a COMIC, SATIRICAL and SIMPLE take on all major current events, ranging from business and politics to sports and entertainment.
Think “SNL Weekend Update” skits done with real news (even the sensitive topics) by a cast of energetic yet cynical 3D animated characters. Oh and since real news is best served with real talk, Daily Bake’s animated cast is an eclectic crew of uncensored (swearing is caring) political, social, cultural and personal opinions! Liberal, conservative, sarcastic, bombastic, take your pick! Taking a side is overrated anyway.
With Daily Bake, news is more animated and animation is more real than ever before! So, we come to you today, to give you a slice of how our lead-anchor Dude Bro and his trusted band of minions, the Macarons, repackage the world… in 100% 3D animation! Check out what we can do on our Facebook page, YouTube channel or Glincon website!
Not exactly. Our encounters with 3D animation rarely go beyond the cinematic “Disney-genre” (you know, break out into song every other minute, hook up with the love-at-first-sight heartthrob and unlock all life-achievements with a can-do attitude and a bubbly fairy god-mother). 3D animation is yet to be a staple, day-to-day medium. But Daily Bake will be. That’s why it’s going to be available through the most readily accessible channels, Facebook and YouTube, absolutely free.
We envision Daily Bake to become part of your daily rhythm, allowing you to relate to news in the most down-to-earth manner possible, via frequently updated, laugh-out-loud 10-minute video episodes. How frequently? Depends. This is where YOU come in.
Ever felt left out of conversations when your friends are fuming about some major global catastrophe you’ve never heard about, happening in a where-the-heck-is-that corner of the globe that’s supposedly ruining the sanctity of humanity and the very fabric of life as we know it? If you ever have these moments, Daily Bake is here for you! The MULTI-AWARD WINNING Glincon animation team wants to make sure that you never have to feel stupid about anything ever again. Minus any intense effort of course.
Chuck out the stale news articles you never read and Times New Roman 12pt newsfeeds that more often than not renders you brain-dead. With the lovable, motor-mouthed bundle of energy – who we have affectionately named DUDE BRO – anchoring the way, you’ll walk away a current-events guru with a golden sense of humor. We take relevant facts – hidden, ugly and otherwise – and mock the dumb, dumber and dumbest. With Daily Bake, you’ll develop a highly informed and comical opinion about the world in no time!
Not much of a news-follower? Not a problem! Daily Bake is first and foremost a show that revels in comedy! We assure you, you’ll be more than satisfied to just follow along the energetic Daily Bake cast for its entertainment value! Satire, slapstick and sarcasm make a potently hilarious mix my friend.
Additionally, to match your required dose of news during episode-production intervals, we also release our trademark W.T.F (Wonderfully Tactless& Forward) newscards. They provide the information you need on all the big issues in the most easy-to-swallow language! Why labor on the conventional newspaper articles when you can skim it effortlessly? Conveniently offered on Facebook and our website, our W.T.F newscards are but a window into the uniqueness of the Daily Bake experience. Check it out to see how news can be ENJOYED.
A dozen more unreleased characters are waiting for your call in pre-production! Covering a range of genres from sports, business to entertainment, our diverse cast includes anthropomorphic chameleons, an awkward old man and a miserly ancient God of Death.
So far we have already released a set of introductory trailers, a pilot episode and a US Presidential Election Special, all available for your viewing pleasure on Facebook, YouTube and the Glincon website. We’ve gotten great feedback and a lot of people seem super excited (and sometimes, super mad)! But to really reshape how people digest news all the while making the 3D animation genre more approachable, we have to be able to release episodes frequently.
On top of the financial pressures of maintaining the high standard of our 3D animated content, we feel that it is ESSENTIAL to provide our episodes on social network sites FREE-OF-CHARGE in order to maximize our series’ penetration into the market. Our animation staff is dedicated to impeccable quality, but unlike Dude and the Macarons, they can’t live on just popcorn. Hence, we have come to Kickstarter to ask for your helping hand.
Our initial goal of $5,000 is the exact cost to produce a single 10-minute Daily Bake episode over the duration of a month. That’s where we start. We’ll take all the help we can get if it means bringing one more episode to our fans, upgrading the 3D animation’s technical quality (modeling, rigging, the whole hoo-ha) quality or creating another cast member to diversify the news commentaries and enrich the story narrative.
We believe that news is better served via multiple perspectives, and since we pride ourselves in meticulously carving out the best possible 3D characters by shaping every minute detail of their appearance and environment, our initial stretch goals will go into unlocking new members to the Daily Bake cast and bolstering the animated environment of our current cast members. At the very least, we hope to maintain our current episode-per-month operations and use your help to strengthen our animation quality, diversify our character range and hopefully shave a few days off from our monthly production schedules. Summer needs a bathroom and Dude needs a bed to sleep on for Christ’s sake!
But to shorten the production interval to an episode every 3-weeks, 2-weeks, and our ultimate goal of 1-week, we need to add more staff to help out our creative experts. Translation? We need your PASSIONATE and ARDENT support. And lots of it! We will keep you updated on the exact funding estimates required to make this happen so stay tuned!It’s very important to us that Daily Bake actively communicates with its viewers, so Kickstarter is the most fitting stage for things to officially kick off (no pun intended)!
We’ve prepared a list of pledge rewards that show our appreciation for you becoming a member of the gang! Apart from the pride and satisfaction of playing a crucial part in realizing the birth of something special, you can take home a wide range of Kickstarter-exclusive goodies that have been designed by our very best animators and artisanal experts! We recognize our backers loudly and proudly, so represent Daily Bake in style!
Once the campaign is finished, we'll send all backers a questionnaire to clarify reward option choices, sizes, personalized requests etc.
Kickstarter is first and foremost, created by fans for fans. And that’s what we are. Fans.
The stars aligned under the New York City skyline when our founders first shared their interests in creating 3D animation, games and other character contents. They wanted to create new models of ‘play’ that will enrich both the media industry and the daily entertainment lives of everyone. Hence the fellowship was formed. After various field work and experience in the field, the team reconvened to form Glincon under one major mantra:
It’s all about making things fun in Glincon. That’s why we kicked things off with Daily Bake, a fresh, new and most importantly, fun way of repackaging relatable information through a high-quality medium.
We assembled a task force of award-winning animators, directors from both the indie and commercial scenes, experienced artists, eccentric writers and “flexible” white-collars to bring Daily Bake to life. The Glincon team assures you top-quality animation created using the most advanced forms of technology. Everything’s done in-house. Warts and all.
Here’s a few key members to note (i.e. blame them if everything goes up in flames). What we lack in looks we make up for in passion, technical expertise and a quirky sense of humor.

It’s definitely challenging but we believe that news and 3D animation would make an enlightening mix. Also, we have an amazing production and creative team that can make it all happen. With the core animators and technicians in place, your backing is going to provide the extra push and hand we need to go over the top.
