If you like hand drawn animation, you'll enjoy this video. It's the first year film project from Jared Liffreing, a student at Cal Arts in Valencia, California. Jared posted links to his film in AN's Gallery. I think it would be a nice addition and a change of pace to feature it on our home page.

What happens when an American record producer, one who produces records for the likes of Elton John and k.d. lang, sets out to produce a music driven animation project by teaming up with the Japanese animation house Studio 4°C, and crowd funds the project with Kickstarter?

If Greg Penny can pull this off, he'll show the world that even with anime, a variety of genres can be made that can excite animation audiences worldwide. Project:13 is a music driven animation project that debuts as a trilogy of three 5 minute music video / mini movies, driven by strong songs with global hit potential.

Greg Penny"s company, Siwa Productions is seeking public funding of $390,000 to complete the project. Interested contributors may pledge their backing through Kickstarter.
