Droomwevers - Voluntary non-profit for kids

Postby Charles » Wed Jan 05, 2011 11:26 am

Droomwevers is an entirely VOLUNTARY non-profit organisation with the aim of introducing children to the audio visual world (ie music, pictures and words). We exist off the ever meagre scraps from commercial and governmental grants, yet despite very limited funding we have produced 2 DVDs (with another in the pipeline). This year we will try to promote these so that as many people as possible can enjoy the excellent work produced (without payment) by some brilliant animators. Who knows, there may even be some money coming back to them. Especially if you purchase one of our DVDs!

Why would so many artists join our project? It involves, after all, lots of work. Firstly some animators share our vision and are happy to have their work seen in the big world. Indeed 2 DVDs have been taken up by a Dutch TV station and shown over 500 times. I wonder how many of the letterwriters can claim this honour?

Secondly our organization produces quality products which many artists find it an honour to be involved in, especially as we are producing educative children's books. Also we provide a platform for animators to experiment and improve their techniques and they know that their work WILL be seen. There have been several animators who have thanked us for giving their careers a kick start.
