Why We Need Your Help?

So here is where you come in. We can’t do it without you!  If you are a aspiring writer, producer, director, filmmaker, or in waiting, or already a pro. Here’s why you want this app:

  • Storyboards were built from the ground up by a storyboard expert, not an app developer
  • Simplified workflow and Collaboration with others
  • Save hundred, if not thousand of dollars on supplies and most importantly, reduce paper waste
  • Take creativity along with you wherever you go.
  • Plus, you want all of the goodies from Tikibone, don't ya?

What do you need $20,000 for?

So far this project has been 100% self-funded. We’ve already spent thousands of hours bringing SketchPad Pro: A Filmmakers Storyboard to the point it’s at now, creating every piece of pixel art and every line of code from scratch.

Since we both have full time day jobs it can be slow going creating a iPad app on nights and weekends. $20,000 would let us quit our job and devote our time to making sure this SketchPad Pro: A Filmmakers Storyboard gets finished by this summer. It would also give us extra resources to find a publisher so we can get SketchPad Pro: A Filmmakers Storyboard to the masses.

What do you still need to add?

Even though SketchPad Pro: A Filmmakers Storyboard is awesome has it is, we want to make it Amazing! This is what we plan to add and improve over the next few months:

  • Improved UI Design
  • Functionally
  • Navigational
  • Printing Templates 
  • More, More, and More. We already plan on adding more awesome features in the future

Any funding we obtain in excess of our goal will be used to add as much content as we can.

Thank You!

With your support, we are targeting to have SketchPad Pro completed by Aug. We hope that you are inspired and excited by the idea and choose to support the project. Either way please spread the word and share with your friends!

We’re passionate about making an awesome storyboard app. We’re excited to put the finishing touches on SketchPad Pro: A Filmmakers Storyboard and get it out to a wider audience. Thanks for reading our pitch and we hope that you’ll consider supporting our project.

FAQ

  • Profit? Seriously. Tikibone didn't come here to make a profit. Our goal is to have SketchPad Pro release to the Apple's iTunes store by end of August 2012.

    Let's take a closer look where we'll be spending our Kickstarter funding:

    If we get $20,000:
    5% $ goes to Kickstarter
    5% $ goes to Amazon payment
    $8,000 for Reward Materials, SketchPad Pro and shipping cost
    $10,000 for the developers
    So, this leaves us around $50 profit, not much and we don't care.

    Last updated:
  • Absolutely a big NO. We put our blood and sweat into this development and we are not quitting anytime soon. If we don't succeed our Kickstarter funding, it will only take longer to build. We don't know when to be finished. Remember, there's only two of us behind Tikibone and both of us have a full time job.
