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.
