You have 24hrs to become the star of an animated film!

Over the past few years, Kickstarter (opens in new tab) has proved a lifeline for many artists, designers and creatives from across the world. Allowing the general public to fund projects has enabled the industry to become community-driven; allowing brilliant projects from across all disciplines to come to life.

This latest Kickstarter campaign (opens in new tab) comes from Oscar-winning director Daniel Greaves (opens in new tab), who's previous films include Flatworld (opens in new tab) and Manipulation (opens in new tab). His new film, 'Mr.Plastimime (opens in new tab)' tells the story of Graeme, a lonely and unappreciated mime artist whose stage routine blurs into reality. With an unexpected act of heroism, he finds the audience and love he has been longing for.


With Daniel personally investing in the film's development, animation tests and initial animation to date, the team have puppets built, backgrounds designed and modelled, and a couple of minutes of animation already shot. They now need your help to complete the production.

The film will be produced using a combination of techniques, including 2D animation, Maya (opens in new tab) and After Effects (opens in new tab). Pledges start at just £1 with the maximum of £5000 resulting in a claymation puppet of you appearing in the film! Now we know that's no small change, but we at Creative Bloq think this is a project worth backing.
