Funding a Documentary "In the Shadows of Light"

Time to make a Documentary about the Los Angeles Stop Motion Underground. This project has been in the works for a number of years and was first announce on the Stop Motion Animation website a few years back. What had transpired was a maze of life altering moments piled one after another and eventually led to the making of Stop Motion Magazine. Since then the project was put on hold and the focus was more on making animation (which should be the focus) and starting the magazine.

Whats lined up so far and the focus of the film is all based around the Stop Motion Community in Los Angeles. Don't worry all you people outside of L.A., you haven't been forgotten!!! So far I have Justin and Shel Rasch, Shelly Noble, and Tawd Dorenfeld scheduled for interviews. Also I've mentioned the project to the guys at Screen Novelties and Buddy Systems, along with a few other Stop Mo brother and sisters. So far its been well recieved and should be very enlightening.

We are searching for Angel Investors to help push the project along. This means I can probably make the documentary happen without investment but it will be a major challenge. The funding will go to DV tapes, Hard Drives for Storage and Backup, Travel Expencise like Gas and Parking, Camera operator for special shots, Puppet making supplies for those inbetween interview animation sequences, etc....

So if you want to help out then checkout our Indie-Go-Go widget on this blog and make a donation with some pocket change it you have it. We really would appreciate the help and you'll probably get a big thank you in the credits of the film.
