Project is looking to raise $25,000 to build a bigger production team
Animator Sae Okamoto—who previously released a short and worked on SUSHI POLICE as background art director and Danchi Tomoo and Tenkai Knights as an animator—is looking to create her own animation project, and she's turning to crowdfunding to get the job done. The result is a Kickstarter campaign for MECHA-UDE, which is hoping to raise $25,000 over the course of the next month or so.
The goal of the campaign is to get more experienced staff members on board to build a bigger production team and an even better project. Some of the current staff members include:
Compositor: Tatsushi Momen (director of SUSHI POLICE, opening movie of Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4)
Music: Narasaki (Paradise Kiss, DEADMAN WONDERLAND, UN-GO, and more)
Recording & Mixing Engineer: S.O.L.I.D sound lab Co.,Ltd. / Seiji Toda
Here's the pitch video:
Hero was a high schooler living an ordinary life.
One day, he meets a very strong and intelligent mechanical arm named “Mecha-ude”. After a strange turn of events, the “Mecha-ude” started living inside Hero’s hoodie and the two’s life full of trouble begins.
As the boy and his “Mecha-ude” fights together and strengthen their bonds, the two also meets new friends who also fights along with each of their own unique “Mecha-ude” partners.
