Raising serious money through crowdfunding platform like Kickstarter.

In the past, we are very dependent on government funds to produce animation. Times has changed. Do look at the kind of projects and some serious money being raised through crowdfunding.

I am not saying it is easy. (Getting government funds is not easy too.) You need to have a strong campaign and fans to support you. But this helps you to build your IP and brand for a long-term. Its worth thinking.

For art related projects, I suggest Kickstarter as it has the largest community and capital so far to support artist related projects as compared to other crowdfunding platform.

Here are some interesting animation projects

Money Raised $878,028 (pledged of $580,000 goal)

Money Raised $625,518 (pledged of $150,000 goal)

Money Raised $441,900 (pledged of $400,000 goal)

Money Raised $483,524 (pledged of $80,000 goal)

You can find more successful projects here as well as to have a better understanding on their campaign behind.
