    Disney Animators Are Making Animation History With This 2D Animated Steampunk Film

    Do you want to be a part of animation history?

    The greatest animated film you get to help make.

    In what could be a record breaking crowd sourcing project on Indiegogo, a team of pro animators who have all worked with the big dogs in animation (Disney, Dreamworks, etc) have gotten together to create what is quite possible the best animated film in the history of the world and also help preserve 2D animation. Their project, Hullabaloo, has already grossed almost a half a million dollars through its Indiegogo campaign and it may well be the most successful animation short film ever funded through crowd sourcing.

    Who is the talent behind this project?

    James Lopez (The Lion King, Pocahontas, Paperman); Bruce Smith (Tarzan, Emperor's New Groove, and The Princess and the Frog); Rick Farmiloe (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Princess and the Frog); Minkyu Lee (Frozen, Adam and Dog, Princess and the Frog); Sandro Cleuzo (Enchanted, Emperor's New Groove, Princess and the Frog); Sarah Airriess (The Princess and the Frog, Wreck-It Ralph, Paperman), G. D. Falksen, Yuri Lowenthal, and many more.

    What the heck is it about?

    Hullabaloo is a 2D (hand-drawn) animated steampunk film that hopes to help preserve the dying art of 2D animation; and by supporting this project, you get to help save 2D animation from an untimely demise. We want you to join us in making a short film that will showcase the world of Hullabaloo, which we can show to investors to fund a full length 2D feature. 2D animation is a beautiful but dying art form that the animation studios have all but abandoned. But if we can fund this film with your help, we will be able to show investors that people really do want to see a feature length animated steampunk film, allowing us to get the tremendous amount of funding needed to complete Hullabaloo as the full-length feature we believe you want to see.

    In addition to helping save 2D animation, Hullabaloo aims to encourage girls to explore science and adventure. The film's two protagonists are both young women and both scientists who use their intellect, wits, and courage to fight greed and corruption. We hope that Veronica Daring and her friend Jules will serve as positive role models for girls of all ages and encourage them to get excited about science, engineering, and sci-fi.
