My name is Kaitlin Sullivan. I'm an animation production manager in Portland, OR, a lifelong Sailor Moon fan, and producer of Moon Animate Make-Up and the Bartkira animated trailer.

Moon Animate Make-Up was started as a tribute to a classic animated series, but it's also evolved into an experiment to see if crowdsourcing and cloud technology were a feasible production model to make animation. My love of this project is getting to see hundreds of animators come together to offer their original spin on a beloved series. In an industry where we're so often tied to model sheets and retakes, Moon Animate offers animators a chance to work in their own style on an iconic superhero for fun.

When I started the first Moon Animate, I worked part-time and had my afternoons and weekends to work on it. Now I usually work eighteen hour days to get ahead of my school loans. I don't have the time to make t-shirts for Kickstarter, and Patreon is a great model to help get ahead on my monthly payments while providing updates on for all the fans and contributors. Anything you contribute helps ease up my workload so I have more time for Moon Animate.

The next episode of Moon Animate will launch in September 2015. It will be from the second season of the classic series. My projects take about 9-10 months, but I make an effort to keep the production blog updated and talk about how I put these collaborations together to educate those who want to know more about how to make this.

It's not just my mission to create animated parodies. I want to see if this production model can be used for creating original 2D animated content. With the number of positions in animation going from steady employment to traveling for contract work, I think animators should have the freedom to work out of their homes and live where they want to instead of out of a suitcase. Technology has reached a point where we have more opportunities to create these works and I'm excited to see of what comes of it.

In the meantime, Moon Animate Make-Up R is in the works and will be arriving on the internet in 2016! Thanks for your contributions!

$0 of $350 per month
My school loan payments are a little over $300 a month, but with interest rates. This would get me a little ahead of that.
