Hey, Smirk Studios Fans!
You may have heard, I lost EVERYTHING on the road traveling... long story short, I broke down in a town I don't know, and while getting the part, someone smashed out the window and took EVERYTHING, including my clothes... and the roaches in the ashtray (but they left the ashtray...?)
Anyhow, enough about that. This is about how I'll be making my comeback, and how you'll be helping!
Zombie Doll is a cartoon I did nearly two years ago. It spent time on many networks' desks, and is finally ours again. Now we need your help funding it, simply because we want the original ideas in tact, which the networks couldn't or wouldn't do! We know you loved Sketched, and we know you love Jeff Short's hilarious writing style, so let's just cut to the chase!
We're trying to reach a goal of $40,000 dollars for this project to pay myself and the actors to run a full season of the show! The pilot (linked above) was made with little to no budget, which means in comparison to what we'd produce for you with ANY funds, we'd be able to crack out much higher quality episodes. What we need from you is the faith and understanding that we've always known you for! Check out the Kickstarter page and pledge now! We could really do something big here, and it starts with your contribution!
Thanks for all your support thus far. We have been patiently waiting for something to go right all this time, and now we're finally at the all or nothing stage. Any ideas or commentary would be greatly appreciated!
This is mostly news for Noreasta Productions fans. Smirk Studios fans will be getting a real treat soon, regardless!
Thanks again, seeya soon!
PS - Getting robbed sucks... they took my BRAND NEW electric guitar, which came paired with a brand new effects pedal and some various other musical gear... It kind of worked out, though, because it forced me to pick up a beater acoustic guitar, which really improved my skills. I'll be starting a band when I get the chance, but they took my laptop and new Bamboo Wacom Tablet, as well as my clothes and even my bathroom hygienic stuff... you wouldn't even believe some of the stuff they got, which I guess is what I get for being homeless and having to travel with all my stuff all the time... Lesson learned? If you won't be giving to the Kickstarter fund, please find it in your heart to donate to me directly so that I can get back on making animations and doing what I do to make a living!!! They took my laptop AND the bag I had all the backed up files in, which was a separate bag... Dammit!! That had a full length professionally done episode of the new Primetime Primate I was just about to release... which would have helped in getting some sort of ahead.
Like I said, if you aren't giving to the Kickstarter for whatever reason, please donate to my cause so that I can at least get another laptop and get back on my animating... it really sucks to be reduced to nothing! Thanks in advance, I know you care. Love you all! Seeya at Comic-Con next year! I'll post more by then, just so you know. Bye!
