A basic synopsis of the project is: "The Energy Troopers, a team of young adult superheroes must come together to defeat Scarlett Delacroix and her fellow acolytes from obtaining a great power that could end all life on earth."

I wrote a feature film treatment as I envisioned this as a feature, but I'm looking for funding of a Proof of Concept short. Making a short film is a way for to tackle the story creatively in a different format while showcasing the potential of what could be. The script for the short had been written, showcasing the main 6 characters, the tone of humor and action, with great performances from the cast. Concepts have been designed, the script has been storyboarded, and an animatic has been created. Funding is strictly for the animators and the film festival run.

Perks include:
Special Thanks Credit
Advance digital copy of the short film
Director's commentary
Storyboards/Animatics
Concept Art
BTS documentary highlighting actor recording sessions
Exclusive poster designs/computer wallpaper
Soundtrack
Producer credit

Campaign ends:
December 1st, 2022

I don't have any, I have never thought of the idea, but it is really interesting! mini/delirium  Sticky tack is often hard to hide for the generally large ish amount you need to keep it in place for movements. I think wires would be a great idea. Maybe you could pass them through the torso and attach it to the arm part that keep the arms in the figure?  mini/smile

Oh ok because I saw someone using it (don’t remember who tho) but I can’t find a good wire that is strong enough to keep the arms in place but flexible enough to be easy to move and not break my arm like my first attempt did

This is not the place to talk about this guys. Talking about animation and techniques should go in the Production section of the forums. It is a pretty interesting question, though.
