ARMSmasters - Kickstarter Round 2!!

Postby mwinn » Fri Sep 07, 2012 8:30 am

Hey guys! I did not see a way to edit my original post from back in July so I think a new post is best in this case.

My team and I are back on Kickstarter for a 2nd Run at reaching our goals to help us finish our action animation proof of concept for The ARMSmasters Project! We appreciated the past support by Animation Nation and their community and so we've come again to keep you appraised of our efforts.



You can find the new presentation and project at:

Some great things happened this past summer and we've high hopes for where we can go with this animation as we move into this fall. Please come check us out!

Thank you for any kind words and support!

Hey guys!

Sorry for not responding sooner. For some reason I haven't gotten email notifications related to posts being placed on this page so I did not see the question or the bumpage:

We are offering a DVD copy and digital copy of the short when it is finished. Because it is a sizzle reel/short film of around 5 mins in length, the DVD will also contain collections of artwork, storyboards and other assorted material. Our goal is to find willing production partners, distributors and financers to help us do multiple episodes for either internet and dvd distribution and a full TV series following. we're actually making headway with several interested parties out west but are still pushing kickstarter and our own efforts until something solid surfaces.

We're just over 2 weeks in with 29 days to go -and- right at the cusp of 50% funded!!! We continue to solicit your pledges and your support and the passing of the word on our efforts. We think there will be something in ARMSmasters for everyone. Thanks guys! Here are some posts of a few videos in the meantime.

Thank you Charles!

In the space of a few days we've jumped up from $4844 to $5403 and are at 67% funded! We have 14 days to go and anyway you break down the math our goals can be reached if we get everyone on board! Remember, every little bit helps. The smaller pledges are in their own way more important then the bigger ones! Please keep us in mind.

Please visit http://thearmsmasters.blogspot.com as well for production art teasers and other information!

Hello everyone! Thank you for your support and well wishes. We are 7 days to go on Kickstarter and at 73% funded. We're literally a stones throw away but need to continue to solicit your pledges and well wishes. Please check our action-animation pilot effort out if you haven't yet and continue to pass the word on. Thank you!
