KickStarter for Jonny Quest episode!

Post by MovieStuff » Fri Aug 31, 2012 8:30 pm

-Shameless self promotion zone-

After releasing my opening title sequence a year ago, I have had a number of people asking about a full episode of Jonny Quest. Unfortunately, this is a much larger, more expensive proposition than just doing 90 seconds. So I've launched a KickStarter project to raise the doe-ray-me.

Check it out. I realize that most people here don't have the discretionary funds to support something like this but if you can help spread the world via tweets, facebook, etc that would be awesome.

Thanks!

Roger

Wow! Thanks so much for your support! I dunno if we're gonna make our goal but, who knows? I've seen some pretty crazy projects on KickStarter that have managed to pull it off. Here's keeping our collective fingers crossed!

Thanks again!

HEY-HEY-HEY!!!! We are officially over 10% funded! Thanks to a high-roller that just claimed one of the $5000 contribution rewards, we have managed to get into the double digits. Hopefully, this is the beginning of a surge of interest as we count down the last couple of weeks of KickStarter funding. So spread the word! Let's make this happen!!!
