Let’s build a cardboard spaceship!
THE SPACEMAN is a black and white short film that mixes live-action and stop-motion animation together to create a visually striking, fun-filled adventure.
I will be utilizing lots of practical effects:
- cable animatronics
- set design
- camera tricks
This project is very dear to my heart and I am going to do everything I possibly can to make THE SPACEMAN come to life. It is strongly inspired by the films of Michel Gondry, Tim Burton, and the adventurous tone of Star Wars. If you ever pretended to build a spaceship out of cardboard as a kid then you know where I’m coming from.
I have a clear vision of where I want to bring this film, but I need support to do so.
HELP ME FINISH THE STORY
I’ve already put a lot of my own personal funds into THE SPACEMAN and friends have volunteered their time to build this world with me, but as the movie developed I realized it could be so much more. I simply don't have the means to do this alone. To accomplish the final scenes I will need your help.
Here is where the Kickstarter funds will be placed:
- A miniature stop-motion set of the forest planet.
- Materials for props
- A life-sized Spaceship Corridor Set
- Puppet Tentacles
- Film Festival Submission Fees
Expected Release Date: January 2015

Risks and challenges
Making a film is never easy and Stop-Motion is a very meticulous form of animation. The biggest risk is that the film will take longer than expected. Sometimes puppets break and shots need to be re-animated.
Post-production is another potential reason for delays. Creating the score, Sound FX, and final touches to the Visual FX is quite a process. I want THE SPACEMAN to meet my full expectations and this can take some time.
To meet this challenge, and deliver the film on time, I will be collaborating with talented artists and friends, who along with myself will bring years of experience in filmmaking, props, set design, music production, and storytelling to achieve our unified goal.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
