Help Jeff Lafferty, create an epic fantasy as stop-motion animation!

NEW INCENTIVE ADDED TO $75.00 AND ABOVE!!! - My good friend, sculptor and fellow animator Mike Fleming Jr. Has sculpted this miniature bust of my character Grimm from Curse Of The Wolfs Heart. 

He’s producing a limited edition run of unpainted resin casts and donating them to support this project!

I’m adding them as a bonus incentives to the $75 level! Everyone who donates $75 or above will get one of these awesome little heads by Mike jr!

Thank You Mike!

WHO AM I - Hi, I'm Jeff Lafferty. I'm an illustrator, I've been a comic book artist and now I'm trying to be an animator.

WHAT AM I DOING - I'm asking for $8000 to fund my stop-motion animated movie - CURSE OF THE WOLFS HEART

I know $8000 isn't enough to fund a movie, but I plan to use the $8000 to jump start this project into a business 

1. The money will allow me to work exclusively on the film for six months.

2. I believe by using this time wisely, documenting my progress in a daily film blog and releasing the the movie in three to five minute episodes as it's created. I'll be able to gain attention, build excitement and find an enthusiastic and loyal audience for the film.

3. After six months has passed and the money begins to run out, I plan on trying to monetize that audience with further incentives like the ones I'm offering here. Hopefully this will allow me to continue funding the film until it's completed.

WHAT'S THE MOVIE ABOUT -

 It starts with three warriors traveling to a dark castle with the intent of stealing away a princess and murdering her captor ... a horrible dragon King. Things don’t go as planed and they encounter much battle and much adventure. In the end one of the survivors of the ordeal is cursed with a wolfs heart. 

He becomes half man, half wolf and the curse plagues him throughout the rest of the story … I’m not sure how much you want me to give away? 

Basically its an epic fantasy story, with knights, goblins, witches, dragons, and of course wolves. It has a bit of a love story and a lot of high adventure.

WHY AM I DOING THIS - Because I've always wanted to do something great!

When I saw films like Star Wars and Dragon Slayer as a kid, I thought to myself, that's what I want to make. Up until now, that journey has taken me to a lot of places. Its led me to become a comic book artist, toy designer and now an illustrator.

... but I still haven't accomplished what I set out to do.

I believe this may actually be what I was trying to do all along, and I want more than anything to be able to do it!!!
