Last year I made the short animated film George Ought to Help. This year I'll make a follow up, the working title is Edgar the Exploiter.
Based on the success of 'George', I expect 'Edgar' to be viewed, re-posted and discussed widely. It will help spread understanding of how political interventions, even when enacted with the best intentions, can end up hurting those they're supposed to help.
The plan, and what's in it for you
I aim to raise funds to allow a concentrated period of work (about three months) so that the film can be published online before 2012. Funds raised will go towards storyboarding, scriptwriting, design, sound recording, composing music, animation and publicising efforts.
If the funding goal isn't met, the film will still be made and all rewards will be honored, although the whole process will take longer.
You can follow the progress of the project using the Updates tab towards the top of this page.
