Joanna Makes A Friend (JMAF) is about a little girl’s struggle to fit in at school. Joanna has slightly odd tastes for her age, so the kids at school tease her. She wants desperately to make a friend so she takes matters into her own hands and builds a robot friend out of spare Betamax VCR parts in the garage. She christens him Edgar Allen Poe-bot, or EAP for short. EAP becomes so popular that he no longer wants to hang out with poor Joanna, thus forcing her to face her fears, come out of her shell, and make a real friend.

THE ROBOT SITUATION
We are looking for your pledges to help build EAP - The Ultimate Robot Friend! We’ve gathered our team of specialists to help, but they need materials, equipment and custom parts to make it happen. More precisely, expensive parts. This is why we're here asking for your help. EAP needs to look his amazingly technical best. If you’ve ever dreamed of being a part of some movie magic or maybe building the coolest robot ever - This is the opportunity you can’t let go.
