Anomalisa is the most funded film in Kickstarter history, and there're some big names behind the project, but so far the media and the interweb have been relatively quiet on it. What's up with that? Still, here's a piece from The Daily Dot:
On Sunday, Anomalisa became the most funded Kickstarter film ever.
The stop-motion animated movie—a collaboration between writer/director Charlie Kaufman and Community’s Dan Harmon and Dino Stamatopoulous that kicked off in July—raised $406,237 thanks to its 5,770 supporters.
[...] Anomalisa barely surpassed The Gamers: Hands of Fate, the third installment in the role-playing-game-centric film series, which successfully raised $405,917.
[...] Anomalisa’s Kickstarter success shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. Within the first 24 hours of its campaign, the film raised over $88,000. (Source)
And the media release put out earlier today by the Anomalisa crew:
Starburns Industries, an animation studio known for groundbreaking stop motion animation work, has successfully raised over $400,000 for an upcoming animated film project using the crowd-sourced funding site, Kickstarter. The exact amount of $406, 237 makes Anomalisa the most funded film project in Kickstarter history.
[...] "We hope that this will set a precedent with other small studios to, not only independently produce projects without the interference of meddling, multimillion dollar conglomerates, but also to step in and help creators keep their visions pure." Said Dino Stamatopoulos, Executive Producer. (Source)
