The Peter & Company Animated Pilot on Kickstarter!!
Have you people ever thought "What if, to a child, what appeared to be an imaginary friend... were in fact his guardian angel?"
Well Peter & Company online comic. To those who are unfamiliar with anything He's done aside from the Whitney series, Peter & Company is a G-rated comic where the characters all originated. In the comic, the main characters (including both Whitney and Peter) are around 13 years old, and it tells the story of Peter trying to survive his childhood with the help of his friend Seth, a "Guardian" whom only Peter can see.
The reason he brings this up now is because he has been working with a local independent animation studio in the DC/MD/VA area in order to create an animated pilot episode based on the comic. This episode will be 10-12 minutes in length and will be used to pitch the series concept to TV networks, such as Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, and The HUB. Funding is being established entirely through Kickstarter, with an overall budget set for $10,000.
The Kickstarter campaign has already begun, and as of this writing has brought in $7,540 of the $10K goal, with 18 days remaining until the deadline.
If we can meet the funding goal within the remaining time, the project will be green-lit and production will begin immediately on the episode. They will be holding voice acting auditions to fill the roles -- more information will be given on this soon. Also, the rewards for donating are insanely awesome, all based around having a character based on you drawn into both the comic and the animated series. The top tier reward (for $1500 donations) even incorporates your character in as a permanent addition to the cast and storyline!
