About

I need your help finishing this short film. 

Over four years in the making, 'The Warning' is an animated short about the conflict between present day humanity and future generations. 

Money raised by the project will go to: 

  • Studio time to re-record voice over (originally recorded in my living room) and remix the sound track including a new ending, resampling some SFX with unknown artists, and additional lines for the 'Jane' 
  • Pay the (amazing) Louise Crawford  - who gave her time freely to record the voice over for Jane on my amateur home rig
  • Excess funds to be spent advertising the project for wider exposure

Risks and challenges

The main risk with this project is the time-consuming nature of the work with over 2000 hrs spent already hand drawing cels. Redoing art and lip-syncing may involve several weeks of work, varying based on how closely newly recorded voice acting matches current animation.
