'WAKFU' - Kickstarter - February 19 2014

I love crowdfunding! Sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo have renewed my faith in the potential of the creative community especially when it comes to projects outside of the mainstream status quo industry.

Case in point is the campaign for "WAKFU: The Animated Series" on Kickstarter.

The goal of the 30 day campaign is $80,000 (Canadian) and they reached it in just two days! Currently as of this writing on the third day of the campaign they're at $94,647.

The project is initiated by Ankama in Roubaix, France. They're the production company behind this great cartoon which has been airing in their country since 2008. The aim of the campaign is to raise funds to dub the series into English and other languages thus expanding the reach of the franchise.

'Junk Head 2' on Indiegogo - Feb 28 2014

Some of the efforts at independent animation are truly amazing and astounding. Take for example "Junk Head 1" by Takahide Hori. It's not only independent, it's primarily a solo effort that's produced a full half hour of excellent stop motion animation of an intriguing story. Watching a few minutes of the video gives you a great idea of just how good this is, although I encourage viewing the entire film. It took the artist four years to produce.

Now there's an Indiegogo campaign in the works to help get production on "Junk Head 2" underway. It wraps up on February 28 2014. Consider supporting this extraordinary effort and help spread the news about the Junk Head 2 crowdfunding campaign through your own networks, contacts and connections.

Here's Junk Head 1 to enjoy...
