PAINTING & CONSIDERING CROWD FUNDING - January 23rd, 2012
Back to work painting the replacement the faces.
I’m using a technique I like a lot, where I paint everything ‘too’ dark and then work backwards and paint the lights up. I think out of everything in stop-motion, painting is the one bit that actually comes naturally to me, and I have confidence in.
I’m planning on running a Kickstarter funding campaign for Curse Of The Wolfs Heart.
I was planning on launching it today, but I had some trouble setting up the Amazon payments, so now I’ve got to wait till after the weekend before I start.
Does anyone have any thoughts about me running a kickstarter for my project. Do you think it’s a good idea, or bad … and why?
I’m defiantly struggling with the idea of begging for money …
By the same token, I regularly visit kickstarter and see projects that ‘I feel’ are ‘ridiculous’, and they are making ridiculous amounts of money … and that makes me think ‘why not me‘?
One thing I want to make clear from the outset is, I don’t want to guilt anyone into giving me money. If you don’t have any, or you just don’t want to … then don’t worry about it. (Everyone doesn’t have to disappear as soon as this thing starts)
I think the bottom line for me is, I just want time to work on my movie. Whenever I’ve stopped working in the past, its not because I get discouraged or bored, its because I need spend my time making money i.e. making cards
That’s why I’ve decided to try kickstarter … honestly to just buy me some time to work.
See you all tomorrow.
