Media Release — I’m writing this email to ask you to support a project for Zenescope Entertainment. We are trying to finance an animated series based on our Grimm Fairy Tales comics through Kickstarter. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Kickstarter it is a crowd funding platform where creators bring their projects to get funded, mainly by fans. In exchange for funding the project backers are given rewards. Most of the time you can purchase the product in advance and that’s what we’re doing with our kickstarter project. Not only can you pre-buy the Grimm Fairy Tales animated series through Kickstarter but we have a ton of other great rewards for our backers.
We have a very talented director, Jon Schnepp, attached to this project as well as Titmouse studios ready to produce it. Jon and Titmouse are behind a number of the animated shows airing on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim block. They also do work for Disney, Nickelodeon and Spike TV. All we need now to make this project a reality is the financing.
Any support you can give out project will be greatly appreciated. I realize that not everyone can contribute financially to this and that’s fine. Getting people to spread the word about it is nearly as important.
So if you only forward this email to anyone you know who likes comics, animation or kick ass entertainment we will be extremely grateful.
Here’s the link where you can check out all the details on our project:
Thanks for you support,
— President of Zenescope Entertainment
About Titmouse Inc.
Titmouse, Inc. was formed to sell the kind of bad ass t-shirts Chris P had been designing on the side for years. It started out great! The designs were great. The t-shirts were great. The vibe was great – but clients wouldn’t stop hiring Chris P to do animation. The networks and studios wanted to hire a company to do these projects, not just a dude freelancing. So Titmouse, Inc starting doing less clothing and more cartoons. We hired more and more employees, expanded into more and more offices in our West Hollywood location and eventually bought our own building in Hollywood to house the ever growing crew. We’re now over 100 people strong and rock multiple television series, movies, titles, shorts and commercials – all in house. We still even make an occasional t-shirt.
Kickstarter aims to let creative people of all kinds — journalists, artists, musicians, game developers, entrepreneurs, bloggers — raise money for their projects by connecting directly with fans, who receive exclusive access and rewards in exchange for their patronage. More than just a fundraising app, Kickstarter’s a publishing platform where project creators can communicate with the people that are supporting them.
