At this stage of Edepth reputation its going to be hard to raise 10k in one shot. (though we actually need more than that... but just 10k is going to be a challenge)
But the production can't wait we have to move on. If we wait past the summer it's going to be 1 year extension to the animation production because of all the free help we are likely to miss from the students. Serious issue. Serious serious issue.
The longer it drags, the less people have the time, power, and patience for the project the less chance the project will succeed.
I think a more effective way is for me to break up the production fund raising and only raise for the amount we need at that stage.
Right now the 3D is going but it will help if I can raise 2000 USD for the modelers, 1k for each person, to have the money to work on the model for 1 month each and survive.
I'm going by how much we need to survive and do this, not how much we actually deserve for the skill for the time being. (lets dream.)
Next stage is to raise 3000 -4000 for the final animatic, 1000-1.5k for the sound, another 2k-3k for the artists. (who have nearly 300 scenes to finish, it will take two full months at least when we are not full time.)
For the sponsors for each stage, we will reward them with giving them a part of the production official files/art work after we register it with the copyright office. Hopefully that's a good incentive to give.
