the challenge of animation, part III

March 30th, 2010

Another quickie, just a link really, but as we address the challenge of animation, it’s important to be looking for a solution.  I’m struggling these days to put it all on paper, but it’s there, and I’m going to try to spell it out.  At the very least, here’s one of the ingredients: crowdfunding. (read the frigging article please)  I’m used it for my film, Nick Cross is using it for his as well.

There is a content revolution occurring as we speak, it’s a quiet revolution and the powers-that-be want business-as-usual.

Viva la revolucion.

    I fail to see how a person could make a living out microfunding nevermind run a animation business.

    Well, KnowSomething, I guess it’s not for you, then. The linked article’s pretty interesting, I think.

    At this early stage in it’s development, crowdsourcing is not a way to make a living. Really it’s a way to help get small projects made by supplementing the budget.

    It’s interesting to watch independent productions continue to rise and find their way into becoming a viable means of making a living. This website seems like a great way to get something over that first hurdle and into production.
