Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, if you were looking for a crowdfunding project to support, look no further. Do you love 2D animation? Are you a fan of steampuck? Vivacious leading ladies? Want to see all of this together in one amazing film? Check out Hullabaloo on IndieGoGo!
This is by far my favorite indie project this year. Hullabaloo is led by James Lopez and a whole slew of other amazing Disney animators, and the whole project is an attempt to showcase the incredible art that is 2D animation. “2D animation is a beautiful but dying art form that the animation studios have all but abandoned.” The crew of Hullabaloo is looking to show investors that the public still loves and appreciates the astounding work that goes into an animation like this, and with our help and support, I think this project is the perfect way to do so.
Not that that isn’t cause enough, but here’s another reason to support this project:
“In addition to helping save 2D animation, Hullabaloo aims to encourage girls to explore science and adventure. The film’s two protagonists are both young women and both scientists who use their intellect, wits, and courage to fight greed and corruption. We hope that Veronica Daring and her friend Jules will serve as positive role models for girls of all ages and encourage them to get excited about science, engineering, and sci-fi.”
FEELS, right? I am absolutely passionate about this project and you should be too. As I was writing this post, I am happy to report, the campaign has reached their funding! And they still have 28 days to go. Let’s help them reach ALL of their stretch goals! This film deserves it. So please, PLEASE, support this project. If you can’t donate to it, please share it. I am so looking forward to seeing this short film, and all other 2D films that follow it!
