Oscar-winner Daniel Greaves’ “Mr. Plastimime” on Kickstarter
There are no shortage of motion projects in need of your cash on Kickstarter but seldom do they come from director/animators of Daniel Greaves’s stature. His soft-spoken pitch, solid production experience as a co-founder of London’s Tandem Films, plus his animation accomplishments – including the Academy Award and Cartoon D’Or for “Manipulation” (1991) – make his new labor of love, “Mr. Plastimime,” worth your consideration.
“Mr Plastimime will be produced using a combination of techniques. The characters are stop frame plasticine puppets with the main character’s facial expressions animated in 2D. The backgrounds will be created in CG using Maya and then all of the elements will be composited together using After Effects.”
