Instant is a 2D-animated short film about the dramatic events that unfold on a minuscule scale as a family tries to survive the making of instant noodle soup.

What's in it for you?  Patrons will get to see all the inner workings of a 2D production.  Each month you'll get to see process videos or demos, and other production art and updates (depending on your reward tier).

Can't pay $$$, but still want to help the film?  Building an audience is time consuming and tricky, and even just watching a video or liking a post can make a huge difference in this film's growth.  Follow this page for public updates, like livestreams!  Streams will always be public when they're live.  Once completed, a stream is archived and will sometimes be edited into a timelapse for Patrons.

The film and $$$ details!  Because I'm working on Instant by myself (at the moment) it's hard to project when the film will be completed.  However, I hope to raise enough funds to be able to pay for other artists to join the project which will also help me to lock down a schedule.  * Update! *  Thanks to your support I've had more opportunities to meet some very talented people interested in working on our short film.  That means we now have an editor (Fashion Joe) and a sound mixer (Erin) to help make Instant the best film it can be.  This is a huge step forward for the film, and I couldn't be more excited!

I'm currently saving all the funds collected through this Patreon.  Once I start utilizing the funds I'll be releasing detailed information about where your money is going.

Here's a list of what funds will be used for:
  • Software licenses necessary for completing the film
  • Assistance with music and sound, animation, and other artwork
  • Post production services
  • Events and materials to promote the film
  • Film festival submission fees
