Auntie Claus Kickstarter

Athena studios, based in San Francisco Bay Area, are working very hard on a bloomin amazing project, Auntie Claus!  A stop motion feature film based on the book by Elise Primavera. It is a Christmas tale which I for one am very excited about!

They are trying to raise the funds to complete a pitch trailer to help give the project the push it really deserves.

They have a pretty extensive stop motion history behind them as their crew includes a ridiculous amount of amazing talent. From people that have worked on Coraline, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Corpse Bride, James and the Giant Peach and that have worked for studios such as Mackinnon & Saunders, Laika, Lucasfilm, Pixar and Industrial Light & Magic. I think these lot might know a few things about stop motion and storytelling, don't you?!?

Here is the catch, there is only 4 days left on this outstanding project and they are 40% away from there funding goal!!! They have a fantastic story and an incredible crew behind them to do it. Please help in anyway you can. Spread the word. Sing it in the street. Write some emails. Anything would be very, very appreciated!! This has to be made!!!

Watch the pitch and see how awesome it looks so far!!
