Good morning, everyone! I come bearing NEWS and a mighty task of great valor for all who are brave and stout-hearted across the land!
The trailer for the animated short film which we posted here on Friday is now LIVE online, everywhere you can think of—Facebook, Instagram, Vimeo, YouTube, Twitter—and we need YOUR HELP to get the word out! We’re hoping to make a huge splash on the interwebs this week and to build anticipation right up until the short film’s debut on December 26.
Here’s why this is so important: Chris and the team have made an amazing piece of art, but they need a studio’s financial backing to extend that work into a full series. If a studio is going to risk that kind of money, they need to know that there’s an audience dying to see this show. So first we have to get their attention, and that is so much easier to do when we’re all working together. Imagine we’re trying to empty a swimming pool of water with nothing but our hands. One of us could scoop water out by hand for weeks and not get anywhere. Several of us working together can make somewhat faster progress. But if we all get in the pool and start shoving the water back and forth in unison, we can create a HUGE wave. And that’s what we’re going to do this morning.
Are you ready? Here are the links! Dive in and start splashing!
*Note: Chris tells us that if you share a Facebook video on Facebook, more people will see it than if you share a YouTube video on Facebook. (Algorithms! So interesting.) So please share that Facebook video on Facebook!
In thanks for your help, here is the first of our production stills, and yet another look at that glorious trailer. 🙂 (Feel free to share the production still all over, too!)
THANK YOU, Featherheads, for your enthusiasm and support! We appreciate it—and you!
