Continued from last week: What To Do When You Horrifically Fail At Crowdfunding Last week I spoke about how we’d failed crowdfunding, left with 4 months and $10k to make a full-length animated movie with zero experience. All my sprightly youthful optimism didn’t help with the shaky newbie foundations: Childlike Optimism/Naivety It’s not that I didn’t have […]

Continued from last week: The Joys of Digital Begging So me and Jordan had been trying to raise money for  The Hit Squad Movie. Spending ridiculous amounts of time online and making new friends, we managed to raise over $10,000 towards the movie. This was 41% of our target goal, not great. So, what next? If it was Kickstarter, we […]

Continued from last week: Communication Breakdown While I’d been going through all of the TV meetings for the movie, I had become friends with an Aussie Kiwi guy called Jordan, a fellow nerd. We clicked immediately as our sense of humour was almost identical. Asking him if he wanted to come on board and help […]

Continued from last week: From Cartoon To Live-Action So, the big TV company had suggested a live-action version of The Hit Squad and thrown names around that I could only dream of. This was it: the big time. My colleague kept in regular contact with me about the discussions she had with the company and […]

Continued from last weeks blog: A List Talent On A £5k Budget The TV company that had asked to have a meeting about The Hit Squad was huge. I’d grown up watching it, it was part of my childhood, so the idea that they wanted a meeting with me was just unbelievable. With the knowledge under […]
