Myers Takes a Swing at Animation Fundraising

Kickstarter is a ‘distruptive’ technology, possibly upending the traditional movie and TV funding model. Projects like Dick Figures: The Movie and Grimm Fairy Tales Animated Series have raised hundreds of thousands, all without giving away their rights to major studios or equity financiers. So the inevitable goldrush is on, with hundreds of new Kickstarter efforts starting every day, but not all will complete their funding. One project on the bubble is Lance Myers’ Boxer Story, which will be animated entirely in Flash. This clip below is a mix of complete animation and rough animatic shots, illustrating Myers’ production method. It’s some of the best character aniamtion ever produced using Flash, and I hope he can hit his $24,000 goal so we can see more of this 20-minute film.
