      Looking a lot like we got fleeced. The last update included a lot of travel and non-project details but we haven't had anything concrete about this project for a long time. Jim Batt must be glad we aren't investors according to Kickstarter, because this complete lack of information would have led to the plug getting pulled by now.

      I agree with Merv...how about an update so we know you didn't just steal our money? It's been months that we've heard nothing at all from you. We'd appreciate any form of update!

      Hey guys, the best campaigns are the ones that do not leave the supporters in the dark!

      Every couple weeks just a quick note to tell us all is well or more important if there is a snag.

      Keeping us in the loop gives you a place to let frustration go when suppliers do not meet schedule.Or to share great news that a cover has come in and looks great!!

      BUT, when it has been two months or more and we hear nothing, like some of my fellow supporters have done, we rightfully start to wonder if you are there diligently working away, OR, you determined early it is a fail, and have absconded with our money??

      The cursor is in your screen!!

      I just got your update. I'm very excited about this project, especially since I am an aspiring animator. I don't have much experience under my belt yet (I don't have a show reel) , but would love to help on this project in anyway I can. Please let me know if I could be of assistance in the production.

      Radio silence for months after walking away with a sweet $70k? Unfortunately seems like this may have been a scam.

    9. Meaghan Roya on July 13, 2016

      Is there somewhere other then kickstarted that you guys are posting the production updates? fb? instagram?

      Congratulations! So looking forward to following your journey with this. I had just read the story when I saw the tweet from Neil about your Kickstarter - the artwork looks perfect for the story and the finished film should be fabulous :-)

    11. marcelle la cour on May 6, 2016

      I'm thrilled you're funded! Can't wait to see some more of the amazing artwork!

    12. Achille Crosignani on May 6, 2016

      Happy things happen here.
      you convinced me instantly with the animation of the hair stormed by the wind.

      Movies are like the wind that blow among the leaves... sometime literally.

I think I speak for a lot of us when I say I am highly anticipating watching this! So much love and care is going into this...I'm just glad I could help and be a part of it in a small way! :)

      My only problem is waiting! Can't wait to see how it turns out, as it looks to be utterly awesome.

    26. Steven Taylor on April 17, 2016

      Is there any chance this could be up for an Oscar when it's finished?

    27. Daniel Raboldt on April 17, 2016

      Looks awesome! I can't wait to see the final result :)

    28. Sarah Jungen and Karsten Hoop on April 14, 2016

      I am here because this is interesting and what I saw was amazing!

      The preview footage looks amazing. I can't wait to see the completed project.

    32. Jim Batt 2-time creator on April 9, 2016

      @nathanael: I actually really like the way the white edges catch the light! Gives this nice edge lighting effect, and gives definition. We will no doubt be tweaking this scene by scene though, as sometimes certain elements look better with blacked edges.

    33. Jim Batt 2-time creator on April 9, 2016

      Thanks for the lovely comments gang! And wow - this thing is blowing up way faster than we could have ever hoped for... looks like everyone is as excited about this film as we are!

    34. Hannah Furniss on April 9, 2016

      This is just beautiful and I cannot wait.

    35. discoverylover on April 7, 2016

      @nathanael I was thinking that too, but actually I think it gives it more definition!

      Just a little thing, but i guess it is a choice : did you concider painting the edges of the paper to avoid the white lines ?
      Nontheless great project !
