The ARMSMasters Project - Kickstarter campaign
Written by Charles   
Friday, 06 July 2012 01:30

Michael Winn is developing a project out of a Michigan based animation studio. It's an action-fantasy 2d animated adventure called The ARMSMasters Project. It's a collaborative effort that has a lot of sweat equity in as can be seen in the video. 

Now it's on Kickstarter raising funds to complete a short for film festival entry and as a pilot for a fun, adventurous series.

ARMSMasters is heavily influenced by both action-anime aesthetics as well as American / western animation and superheroics as Michael describes in the Forum topic. Feel free to check out The ARMSMasters Production Blog and visit their Kickstarter page to find out more and to contribute.

I've enjoyed the wit and absurdity of this cartoon for quite a wile now and would like to share it with you. Drnkn Mstr on the Forums has entertained us again with "Scottish Ninjas" which is a Web series on YouTube. The lads behind the cartoon have taken their 20 minute scripts and broken them down into 3 minute long minisodes that will be released every 2 weeks. It's a little on the blood and guts side so be forewarned but that's the way of the Scottish Ninjas. They've launched a Kickstarter campaign which calls for an AN Homepage spotlight. Here's the Forum topic.

This is a fourth year student film from CalArts that recently went online. The filmmaker is Sabrina Cotugno. ANer TransRobo brought it to our attention in a topic on the Forum Gallery and I'm glad they did. A great little film that is full of surprises.
