The “Lunatics” project is coming very close to the end on our Kickstarter to fund the voice and audio production for Lunatics. We’re at 31% now, and have just 4 days left to raise just under $3000 to make our goal:
We had canceled an earlier attempt to fund the entire production of the pilot episode for our free-culture science-fiction series, but we immediately launched this replacement, which will just fund the next step in production (I’ve only just realized I never updated the link on QuestionCopyright.org!). We are all set up to record the voice actors and complete the soundtrack (including music, sound effects, and so on). We are also going to create an 2D animatic to go with it. This is a useful pre-visualization step in the production of the final animated episode, but it will also make for a more appealing presentation of the audio.
We’re offering viewable DVD copies of the animatic production, soundtracks, and also the recently-finished “Pre-Production Artbook & Writer’s Guide” among the rewards. Plus you can get your name in the credits as anything from a “Backer” ($10) to a “Corporate Logo Sponsor” ($1000) — and many steps in between).
“Lunatics” is a free-culture (CC By-SA 3.0 licensed) open-film (meaning the animation elements, 3D models, sound effects, voice tracks, and so on are or will be available under the same license on our site) project. We also make extensive use of free-software and insist on open data formats. After release, we’ll be using QuestionCopyright’s very own Creator Endorsed mark to promote products that fund us, and we’ll share what we earn with the artists who have contributed.
