About

"Termites," is an animated film that is about a colony of termites living in the floorboards of Anne Rice's house - that is about to be tented and fumigated.  It was originally created by Barrett Kime, Tighe Damron, and Tom Wentworth, with original artwork and visual concepts by Matt Hill and music from composer Melanie Makaiwi.

The group has set out to bring the world of Termites to life through this animated project.

Think about it: we all know the iconic tented house image. But what would it be like to get a look inside the lives of this "planet" / society that is about to be wiped out?

Through the eyes of young Termite hero, Larkin, we dive into both the fascinating narrative world (4 arms, anybody?), the exquisite landscape of artistic possibility, and the raw emotion of a tragic, yet inspiring story.

To pull this off, we are looking for your support: the exclusive group we have come to know as "The Colony" - fierce, loyal lovers of art and story who want to explore this journey with us.

Why do we need $30,000? Watch the credits at the end of a Pixar film. It goes on forever. We need a fraction of those resources and for this budget we can create the film we've always wanted to share with you.

More than your financial support, we are looking for collective collaboration.  Join The Colony, explore this journey with us for the next 30 days, and fall in love with Termites, just as we have.

Risks and challenges

Of course, with any creative endeavor, there are risks and challenges. One of the biggest challenges this team will face is creating a large-scale disaster story on a modest budget. The project will take roughly a year to complete, with all of the necessary development, design, animation, and mastering phases.
