About this project

What is Honeybee?

Honeybee is an animated series about a girl with the power to communicate with bugs and her journey to save the bees. It takes place in an alternate Earth which is similar to ours, but full of magic-wielding people. The series is aimed at older kids and teens, but we want to create something that anyone of any age can enjoy. 
You can learn more about the world and characters of Honeybee on its official blog: https://www.honeybeecartoon.tumblr.com

 

 We plan on creating a 2-minute trailer for Honeybee. This trailer will be fully hand-drawn 2D animation, completely in color. We want to create a trailer that tells a story, something that will draw people in and get them excited about Honeybee. We want to use this trailer to grow our audience and build a fanbase for Honeybee. We want to show this trailer to broadcasters and potential investors, in the hopes of creating a pilot episode in the near future, and after that, a full TV series.

Characters

 

 $16,500 - Pitch Bible! We'll create a full pitch bible for the series, which will help us to win over potential investors. 

$20,000 - Fully Animated Intro! Our animators will create a fully-animated opening using the Honeybee theme song! 

 

We have many rewards available, ranging from digital downloads to cool merch to opportunities within the project. Rewards start as low as $1, so be sure to check out the tiers on the right side of the screen!
We have some unlockable rewards, too! These are items that will be added to certain reward tiers once we hit certain backer goals. The first bonus reward will unlock at 50 backers!

 

 

Risks and challenges

Our main challenge will be creating this trailer as quickly as possible. With our animators working on the project, we should be able to finish it within four months. There may be a few delays, but we’re confident we’ll be able to push on and complete the trailer by August at the latest.

Once we have the funds, I’ll be hard at work getting rewards prepared and sent out while the animators work. Rewards should be out by April at the latest.
