      Hey guys, thanks for sharing this!

      Its really interesting to read, especially for someone who had to work out a pilot budget last year. Great to know, very educational.

      Thank you for your transparency!

      I understand and appreciate the need to be so up front with such a huge budget, but I wouldn't be too worried. I feel that the quality of the pilot speaks for itself and as soon as I saw it, I was more than happy to contribute, budget be damned. There is no doubt in my mind we will reach our funding goal, the biggest challange now is to promote this sucker so we can hit the stretch goals and get more episodes, something both fans and the project creators can work harder at.

      I was confused to hear people thinking this was too much to produce a hand drawn cartoon?? I work in theindustry I thought it was modest!! Hopefully clears some things up. Great work guys.

      I have yet to be informed by a cuter pie-chart! :3

      Great breakdown! Must educate the ignorant.

      Hmm I don't see Rewards, Fees or Taxes in the costing?

    9. Philip Alexander Dale on

      "Rewards, Fees, and Taxes" are covered by the $100,000 being set aside for that.
      (As mentioned by the notice on top of the pie-chart.)

      The pie-chart breaks down how the remaining $500,000 dollars will be spent.

      I was really surprised at all of the people that didn't understand it costs money to make a tv show...according to IMDb, Family Guy has a budget of $1Million...per episode!

      I really would recommend doing an AMA on reddit to help promote this awesome venture. With Natasha Allegri's work on AT and Frederator's work on FOP I think it would be just the thing to get an extra bump of interest in the project. $200,000 in 2 weeks is still a long way to go, but I do understand what the money is needed for, I just want to see this project succeed!

      People just cannot grasp how much work/money goes into animation.

      Also, people forget about the 5% cut Kickstarter takes off the top before the creators get a dime.
      Frederator is actually budgeting $80k per episode, not $100k.
      The $600,000 initial goal is just to get things launched, it's $80k per episode after that.

    18. Michael Gooding on

      Also Amazon charges the creators a fee too, I forgot.
      (A further 3-5%)

      So the creators have to plan to have 10% taken off final pledge amount.
