Age Raptors is an idea concieved in 2006 during my first year at the University of Nevada Las Vegas. Although I've pursued many other projects (in animation, film, and graphic design) these characters kept lingering in the back of my mind.

You can walk into any store - grocery or gas station and the likes - and find those cheap plastic dinosaur figurines. Kids love dinosaurs; I was no different, except I never grew out of loving them. And all throughout my childhood, so many 'what if' situations crossed my mind. What if they never died? What if they're hiding underground? What if they've disguised themselves as humans and are walking among us?

All of the above have been done. Look up 'Anonymous Rex' for that last one :)

However, one scenario that I've always kind of had fun with was...what if...in an alternate universe sort of thing...they became sentient! And intelligent enough to foresee any extraterestrial catastrophe, then build a space ship to escape harm's way?

That's what Age Raptors is. It follows these guys through their wacky space adventures as they try to avoid extinction. It'll feature an ensemble cast of Ubee the Engineer, Iya the 2nd in command, the captain, the pilot, all the townspeople...err, town-raptors? And more.

Making this happen takes a lot of work. $8,000 is essentially a bare minimum to get this project going. The funds will take care of the equipment, software, time, and talent that will go into producing the final animation. I hope you can help out anyway you can, to donate directly or spread the word. You would have my eternal gratitude! As far as kickstarter goes, this is the first animated project being produced in the city of sin. Be part of something different!

Thank you Charles CantrellJeremy CloeSusan LundtBrett Walters for your work on the trailer.

Featured song: "High Estate" by Hungry Cloud
