Kickstarter is a powerful place - while it’s not going to answer the hopes and dreams of every new creative in the world… for some it is mecca. Japanese animation studio Trigger, launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund their Little Witch Academia - the first short (with English subtitles) surpassed 800,000 views on YouTube.
The second Little Witch Academia was floated on Kickstarter asking for $150,000. That goal was reached in under six hours. After three days the total is $348,789 from 4,487 backers. If they hit their new goal of $500,000, they will release an audio commentary, a ‘making of’ documentary, soundtrack and art book - there are still 27 days left in the campaign!
