$440 ON THE FIRST DAY - January 26th, 2012

I’m 5% funded already! I’m super happy with how well we did the first day. Thanks to everyone who turned up to pledge!

I stayed up all last night, and today, contacting everyone I know, and everyone whose ever bought anything from me, telling them what I’m trying to do and asking for their help.

As big as my social circle & client base is, and its semi-huge after the last four years of selling art on the net, I don’t think its going to be enough to fund the full eight-thousand.

I’m going to have to figure out a way to pull in outsiders, and spread the word to people that have never heard of Jeff Lafferty.

If you guys have any ides, help me brainstorm this.

I want this to work, and not just for me, but for all the other awesome stop-motion projects out there, that I hope will take heart and be inspired by my success … and hopefully, will follow right after me and get their own projects funded!

Alright, I’ll step off the soapbox and tell you what I did today, besides promote the campaign.

I got one of the lower replacements faces 100% painted.

He looks a little creepy with no eyelids and the weird expression ... I think it’s the ‘ee’ ‘ah’ and ‘uh’ sound, but anyway, I’m super happy with the way this character is shaping up!

I’m looking forward to shooting a lip-sync once the other seven faces are done, and getting some test footage of him talking and emoting.

See you all tomorrow.

Thank you Albrecht

Thanks Shelley

Thanks Vincent, I wish you would. Your blog was one of my favorites to read. Especially once you started making that big monster puppet. I'd just love to see what you'd come up with next.

Thanks again everybody!
