Huzzah! With all of YOUR help, we’ve made our initial goal of $5,000 in just over 10 days! Thank you all for your continued support! In celebration of this event, we’re showing off new artwork!
Now, we may have made our goal, but that doesn’t mean we’re stopping there. Since we’ve still got 19 more days, we’re going to try and raise as much as possible, so we can make the best animation possible! So please, continue to follow us, and check out our progress. Share and comment! We couldn’t have made it this far without YOU! Tesla in Time is going to be a reality.
Thank you so much!

Tesla in Time:
TESLA IN TIME is an animated television series chronicling the time travel adventures of Nikola Tesla and his bosom friend and companion, the one and only, Mark Twain. Together they defend humanity against the dark and twisted wills of the turn of the century social elite, including but not limited to such crooks as Thomas Edison and his E Men, JP Morgan, and George Westinghouse. It is a world of espionage, inventions, satire and adventure, where what was, could have been, and may be, collide in one of the greatest duos that ever was and...never was.
While developing the series we have been inspired by the many incredible events and inventions from the Turn of the Century and draw upon many Sci Fi and Steampunk influences for our designs.
Below we have included a links to more of our concept art so you can begin to see for yourself the project come to life:
Also as the campaign gains steam and we continue production we will deliver all the new concept art and design work we can to keep YOU updated!
Who We Are:
We founded Wood Goblin Studios in 2009 and have been making animated films ever since. Recently we finished an educational animated video for TED: Ideas Worth Spreading, about Anti-Heros in literature through History.

At Wood Goblin, we are passionate about animation. The power of animation and its illusion of life, have always fascinated us and we think its potential has only begun to be unlocked. We are a small team of artists dedicated to producing quality animation without ties to any large networks, which is exactly why we need YOUR help!
To bring you an animated television show that is both charming and hilarious, inventive and adventurous! We are inspired by animated comedies like Futarama, The Venture Bros, Archer, and Robot Chicken, and we believe the adventures in TESLA IN TIME would fit right in.
From the World's Fair to the invention of the motion picture, Tesla lived in some exciting times in America and the World's history, and we want to bring that to life for you.
What We Need & What You Get:
We need $5,000 to finish our pilot in time for the Comedy Central and NYTF competition, which ends on March 4th 2013. The funds raised will go directly to paying our hard working artists and animators, who painstakingly draw hundreds of concept pieces, paint dozens of backgrounds, and hand draw thousands of drawings of our hero Tesla to bring the show to life! Considering the amount of labour, we're truly blessed to have such a supportive team whose efforts deserve to be rewarded. Even though we're not asking for much, $5,000 is all we need to finish our dream idea and pay the artists who make it a reality.
*Rent a high resolution scanner
*Hire more talented Animators
*Voice over artists
To help our staff we've got some unique perks that you definitely won't find anywhere else! Especially if you're a Tesla and AC Supporter!
Our head artist Akemi Gutierrez has agreed to sign and offer original Concept pieces, and prints as well as Iphone cases, and T-shirts featuring our characters! And a shout out in the credits of the film!
We're even excited to offer a drawn place on the show! Depending on the donation, we'll ANIMATE YOU as a featured background character in the finished show!
CHECK OUT OUR GALLERY FOR ADDITIONAL CONCEPT ART AND PERKS!
If We Don't Get Our Funding
If we don't meet our goal, we're prepared to keep working until the Pilot is finished! We might miss the competition and the chance of getting our show on Comedy Central but that doesn't mean other opportunities won't pop up! A finished pilot means we can take it to other places like Amazon Studios or Mondo Entertainment, and develop the show's future as a web series!
