Greetings all!

This is my first post, and as such, I want to apologize in advance for not taking the time to introduce myself properly on the forums. However, this is an unfortunately urgent matter, so I thought I'd go ahead and post anyway! I, like many of you who I hope will see this message, share a burning passion for anime, so I'm sharing this with all of you as this is a project I genuinely want to see the light of day!

If you haven't heard of Mirai Mizue, he's an amazingly talented, award-winning abstract filmmaker from Japan. WONDER is his latest project, and it is an undertaking unlike anything I've personally seen before. The idea behind this impressive project was to create 24 frames (or one second) of animation per day for 365 consecutive days. Each frame represents a unique hand-drawn image, and each of these hand-drawn images is used only once for the entire duration of the film. Whereas his previous works were drawn single handedly by Mizue himself, WONDER received funding from the Agency of Cultural Affairs in Japan and was able to utilize a staff of artists to help with the project. Unfortunately, the grant wasn't enough to cover all the costs of production, so this is where the Kickstarter comes in! With less than 24 hours left, the campaign must raise at least another $3,156 in order to be funded.

I am in no way affiliated with Mizue or WONDER, but I feel strongly about this work and want do what I can to help make it a reality. As we all know too well, modern anime can easily be overflooded with soulless moe titles that are nothing more than money-making schemes--but true art still exists within the medium! I urge you all to at least check out the Kickstarter page for more information:

And finally, here are some videos to see what you're getting yourself into (the first being a film by Mizue entitled Modern, and the second being a trailer for this project, WONDER):

Thanks for reading this you guys! I hope this post does the project justice.
