Who we are?

We are an association of likeminded individuals from across the world that have joined forces to take positive action to protect the environment. Within our association there are Costa Rican animators and film makers, activists and bloggers, astronauts and scientists, businesses, ambassadors and most importantly....students and young people from across the world! We're creating an groundbreaking and interactive animated film about the environment. 

 

Our Story

Our aim is to engage young people across the world in environmental debate and to motivate them into taking positive action to protect the planet.

In the past year we've created a promotional short of our film and now need to push forward to complete the feature length. This film blends cutting edge animation and fun graphics and it's being produced by the brotherly duo of Daniel and Miguel Bermejo of Synchro Studios, with the backing of 'climate blogger' and musician Bruce Callow of the British Embassy in Costa Rica. 

Along with the film, the Odyssey 2050 Association and our global partners have taken our brand and dream forward by running workshops and raising awareness at schools and universities worldwide. We have held creative competitions and attended climate change conferences championing the importance of environmental protection. A notable feature of Odyssey 2050 is its mandate to reach vulnerable and marginalised young people such as those who don't have access to the internet or electricity, and to achieve this we have recently released the Odyssey 2050 comic book..... 

 

The Money??

To complete our feature film we need $100,000.... however, on Indiegogo we´re only requesting $5000......curious...

We have various interested organisations teetering on the edge of investment to help us achieve our financial goal, however it will still not be enough!.....we´re looking for investment from environmentally minded individuals and companies who want to join our project and to bolster our efforts.

For this campaign our $5000 total can easily be exceeded and we hope that it will!!! All monies donated on Indiegogo will go directly to the running costs of creating the feature length film and a short ´The Making of´ documentary to accompany it. We have the expertise of our amazing Costa Rican animators, but without donations they are unable to continue production, we are unable to keep our dream alive.

You can donate from anywhere in the world to this global project!!
