James Lopez is a veteran Disney animator (The Lion King, Pocahontas, Paperman) who is trying to raise funding for his primarily hand-drawn short film, Hullabaloo, with hopes of eventually finding a studio to fund a full-length version.

From the film’s IndieGo page:

Hullabaloo is the story of Veronica Daring, a brilliant young scientist who returns home from an elite finishing school to find her father—the eccentric inventor Jonathan Daring—missing without a trace! The only clue left behind points Veronica toward Daring Adventures, an abandoned amusement park used by her father to test his fantastical steam-powered inventions. There she discovers a strange girl named Jules, a fellow inventor who agrees to help Veronica in locating her missing father and discovering the secrets of his work.

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.

Omg this looks amazing, and look at all those amazing vets working on it, I adore 2D animation and I hope that more projects like this will pop up to help reinvigorate it for future generations because it shouldn’t become obsolete because of 3D animation, it’s simply another tool to work with to get stories across and it has a lot of merit so let’s not let it disappear!

well this is horrifying

No, people you don’t get it. It didn’t just surpass it, IT FUCKING OBLITERATED IT. Browns fundraising has gained just over $50,000, while Wilson’s has EXCEEDED $250,000. There were so many people donating to him, that they had to close the first fundraiser and open a new one, WHICH HAS ALREADY FUCKING EXCEEDED $105,000!!!
The most sickening part, is that Wilson hasn’t even been charged with anything yet and is already on PAID LEAVE from work, so these funds aren’t going toward legal fees or anything. While the Brown fundraiser is struggling to get the support it deserves so that his family can get the legal help THEY NEED, Wilson is LITERALLY BEING PAID AROUND $350,000 FOR MURDERING AN INNOCENT MAN IN BROAD DAYLIGHT.
