The Adventures of Mr. Raspberry is my final project at Emerson College. The series is an expansion of a previous short that I made, A Raspberry Western .
The series is about Mr. Raspberry’s epic journey across the universe in search for his home. On his way he will find himself battling salivating tongues, helping fellow flummoxed fruit and running from bloodthirsty blenders. Each planet he visits for directions brings him closer and closer to home.
The Adventures of Mr. Raspberry is a 3D animation with episodes ranging from 30 seconds to 2 minutes. Each planet has a distinct look and comical depiction of the food people eat. The majority of the shorts will be silent with original music composed for each distinct planet.
__________________ Why do I need help?
Donations will be immensely helpful to get the software and a reliable computer needed to finish the animation and have it be the best it possibly can. After finishing the series I hope to submit it to different festivals and animation studios in hopes of turning it into something bigger than just a student project like a broadcasted cartoon.
I am deeply in love with animation. I had an incredible amount of fun making the original short that prompted me to make the series so I cannot wait to start on the series.
I will be blogging about my progress along the way of course at, Rossnorton.tumblr.com . As of right now, I have started a 30-day trial of Autodesk’s Maya in the hopes that by the end I will be able to actually upgrade to the full version with your donations.
Thank you so much for your time, Ross Norton
