About this project
Risks and challenges
Every project comes with a major inherent risk: what if the team is unable to develop what they say they will? Well, Animake It! is being put together by a team of experts who have extensive experience in related fields. The project lead - Sami Majadla - has been programming for almost 12 years. In that time, he has built all kinds of projects - including videogames & interactive 3D simulations. More recently, he has built 3 different web platforms from scratch, and has also created his own animation framework that included both the ability to create 3D models & animate them (also coded from scratch). Additionally, both Sami & LeRenzo Tolbert-Malcom (the other programmer on the team) have created many traditional animations, and are very familiar with the world of animated media.
As if the experience wasn't enough, the Animake It! team has already finished building all of the core technology and infrastructure that the project needs in order to run. (We cover the specifics above if you are curious.) This means that the most difficult parts of the software project that would be most likely to fail have already been completed.
Beyond this, the single biggest risk to our project is that our project could go viral. If this happens and we have a huge amount of sustained (over a long period of time) unexpected traffic, we might not be able to afford the server costs associated with it. However, we are deliberately limiting the number of users that have access to our platform for this very reason. For the first many months of our project, our userbase will be limited to backers from this Kickstarter campaign.
