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.
