To retell the greatest story ever told for children, through the medium of animation.

Hi and welcome to my crowdfunding page for 'The Good Artist ' animated short. Above is the project as it stands so far, half completed, but enough developed to give you an idea. Screenshots also exist to show how the movie will finally look.

For those not in the know, this is a project I have been working on for over 2 years. It is part of a longer project that has seen the message of the Gospel distributed in nearly 25 languages. It has been a long-held dream to see this idea animated and made available to all. With this in mind, I have commissioned animators to make this dream a reality.
To date, and by the grace of God I have been able to fund almost half myself, with a little help from a couple of close friends.

Here is where I would like to seek your financial help.
A quick disclaimer. In seeking your financial help I by no means wish to use any friendships as a guaranteed way to raise the funds. Your friendship is of greater importance and if you feel not to give, that's fine.
For those unaware, animation is an expensive busy, and as such the whole project will run at close to £25000 before VAT. So far I've managed to find almost half and sincerely hope to unlock the next part if the project with your help. The project is broken down into stages with the next stage being £3000, and it's this stage where collaboration is needed.
If you are able to help fund the next chapter of the story that would be absolutely wonderful. True it won't finish it just yet, rather it should keep the momentum going. Also if I should raise more than the aforementioned £3000, be assured any surplus will be plowed into the remaining parts of the project.

It has never been my intention to make money from the project, rather I have hoped to make it available to all, for free. Many have objected to this approach, but examples like the Bible Project have reinforced my hopes for 'The Good Artist'. However, I do hope that this project may lead to further opportunities for Sunday School material. But that's another story.......

Please consider supporting this next stage
