“Penny Horrors” Kickstarter is now LIVE!

I am incredibly excited about this.  I just launched a Kickstarter to fund a series of horror shorts that I am basing off this thread from Reddit: http://www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/comments/1iwylh/what_is_the_best_horror_story_you_can_come_up/

Essentially they asked readers to submit their two-sentence scary stories, and man did the interwebs oblige. I was incredibly creeped out by reading through them and really wanted to make some into actual films! After gaining permission (Well hello copyright law! I totally saw you standing there) from the the posts’ authors, I realized that the main way to do this right was by paying people in more than hugs and sandwiches. Thus, this was born:

I am incredibly happy with all the support Penny Horrors has received thus far. I worked with past collaborator Adam Levermore (Firefly propaganda posters as well as Team Unicorn artwork!) and a new genius animator and artist Efehan Elbi. Incredibly talented, and I’ll continue to work with them for the poster art for some of the Kickstarter rewards. If I can figure the widget code out, I’ll be putting a Kickstarter widget on the right side of my webpage to better keep track of the progress.

I’ll be announcing more additions to the cast and crew both on this website and on http://pennyhorrors.com. Naturally I’m hoping people are able to support the project with money (every bit helps! Even $1!), but word of mouth does just as much with crowdfunding efforts, so a Tweet or a Facebook post is awesome too!  But just in case you CAN help with a little bit of $$, here’s the link to the Kickstarter campaign:
