We are producing this TV pilot/short film in hopes of getting it on TV so your children can watch an entertaining cartoon with very important lessons on bullying. There is no animation out there like it. Bullying just seems to be starting earlier and earlier this day and age. My goal is to nip it in the bud in a child's earliest of stages I am funding this with a lot of my own money. However, the costs are very high and I need your help. Please remember this is an ALL or NOTHING campaign so if I do not reach my goal, I do not receive a penny of your money. I ask that you please pass this along to anyone who loves animals and is a big anti-bullying advocate.

Raising: $7,500 to complete the remainder of the projected budget.

Thank you so much for looking at my campaign! I hope we get this made together! Thank you!!

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge is getting the team together since everyone is very busy. I am working with all professionals that are actively working so we need to find the time that works for everyone for each stage.

Animation is very timely and difficult to create so the project can take longer than expected. There are always changes with the script and the animation. This is normal in this business.

The end result will be an amazing "made for tv" animated pilot

I will keep my backers posted along the way!
