Gabriele Ranfagni has launched a Crowd Funding effort for his film Gustaf the Puffin. Check out the press release below. Incidentally we interviewed him a while back.
Today, on January 12th, 2015 we are glad to announce that our fundraising page on Karolina Fund has been opened.
Here you can find the link to our page and read all about our project :
We are aiming high and need 42.000 Euros so our project can go from an idea to reality. To reach our goal we need your help. All press coverage, interviews, pictures and such would get us closer to our fundraising goal.
Gustaf the puffin is an animated character which I, Anna Birgis and Gabriele Ranfagni own the copyright to.
We have an excellent team behind us, all very qualified animators. You can see our team on our page on Karolina Fund.
We are aiming to have the pilot show ready in the fall of 2015. We do not have a specific date yet but we will keep you posted.
When that show is ready and premiered, the people that donated the high amounts to our project will be invited to see it, if they have free time to fly over to Iceland. Along with them, part of our team, my self and Gabriele and people from the press, this premier will be a great one.
After the pilot episode is ready and has been premiered it is time for my self and Gabriele to find an investor for our project. Our idea is to make 24 episodes, 11 minutes each.
Gustaf the puffin is Icelandic and all episodes made will happen in icelandic landscape.
As you can see on our fundraising page on Karolina Fund, the introduction for Gustaf the puffin happens on an icelandic beach on black sand right by a place called Dyrholaey.
The idea for the project happened at Dyrholaey last summer in July when my self, Gabriele and others went there to look at the puffins.
If you have more questions or want an interview please contact me â€“ Anna Birgis, by email email@example.com or by phone +354-8658586.
Thank you and I surely hope I will hear from you very soon.
