Kickstarter & crowdfunding campaigns welcome on AN

Some animation centric sites maintain a policy that prohibit the promotion of Kickstarter campaigns.

Well, you won't find that policy here on AnimationNation.

On the contrary. In fact, we encourage you to share your crowdfunding projects with the community. We'll help you get the word out as much as we can to see that your efforts are successful.

Since the advent of digital production and the Internet, crowdfunding is the most significant and positive development to happen for the benefit of animation artists and creative individuals everywhere. We understand how important this is to the future of independent endeavors in our industry and we're happy to assist in seeing you succeed by virtue of the additional exposure AN provides.

We're artists just like you and we understand how difficult it is to get something going on your own. We want to see you succeed and we're happy to help in promoting your efforts!

If you have a campaign that you're looking to move forward with, you can either register on the forums (recommended) or contact us privately with a description of your campaign along with a link to your crowdfunding site and we'll help get the word out.

This is the best time in the history of our medium and industry to be creatively active with your projects folks. We're in a New Golden Age of animation. With YouTube, Vimeo, Kickstarter and the many other venues for exposure on the Web there's never been a better opportunity to do what you've always wanted to do.

AN is here to help you pitch to the people!

Good luck and Keep Creating!

Something to keep in mind that would benefit the promotion of your campaigns. Get your Kickstarter video on YouTube or Vimeo. That way we can embed it on the forums.

Hey Charles,

Good idea. You'll get lots of traffic and far more AN members once word gets around.

Are you limiting us to Kickstarter or the other crowdfunding sites like Indigogo and GoFundMe?

I have a list of crowdfunding companies from around the world. It's growing like wildfire.
