This isn't directly related to animation but its significance is something I feel should be shared with the community. It underscores the dramatic changes that are taking place in the way business is done for creative enterprises through crowdfunding.

Currently they're at $228,885 and there's still 23 days left to the campaign. Is this the future of business for artists, musicians, inventors, entrepreneurs and creative people in general?
