"Crickets Would Sing" is under financial sponsorship by the San Francisco Film Society. Tax deductible donations can be made to the project by following this link, any amount is greatly appreciated! Our fundraising efforts have raised over $100k to date! We are well into preproduction on the two films and happily moving along. A special thank you to all those who have helped spread the word so far.
To fully fund a project of this scale we we will need help from any and all institutions who understand the value of what we are trying to create. One minute of stop motion costs us roughly $120k and 3,000 hours of artist time. While this sounds expensive, we are running our production a little under a quarter of what studios normally spend to create animation at this level.
As individuals, we can crowd source our brains and hearts together to find all the creative solutions to finance this endeavor. if you can help, if you’ve got the feet and the ideas, we are waiting to hear from you. This project simply cannot be produced without the support and creativity from our friends.
