I have some super exciting news! I have been trying to get my very first full length animated feature film off the ground for some time now. The project is called "The Waterman Movie" and is based on the animated series I started right here on NewGrounds back in 2003 entitled "Waterman". I am honored to announce that the film also stars comedic legend Leslie Nielsen (The Naked Gun, Airplane)! The reason for the film's drastically slow production rate is solely due to its lack of a budget. Recently, however, I have discovered a potential solution. This is where you come in!
"The Waterman Movie" has just been approved to appear on a rather exclusive website called Kickstarter.com. Kickstarter is a site that helps creative individuals acquire the financial backing they need to complete their projects. The way it works is much like a telethon, if you pledge a certain amount of money you receive a reward. For instance, if you pledge $1.00 you're name will appear in the end credits of "The Waterman Movie" under the Kickstarter Backers section, if you pledge $100.00 you'll receive a package that includes an autographed copy of "The Waterman Movie" poster (Leslie Nielsen included). My goal is to make $35,000 in 60 days and if I can reach that goal before the 60 days are up, I will be able to hire a studio to help produce and finish the film. If I do not make the goal, the project will go unfunded. THAT'S the tricky part!
It's a real honor to be featured on Kickstarter.com. This is a project that I, along with many of you, have been dreaming of finishing for a long time, so I'm hoping that you can help by either pledging what you can or by spreading the word to as many people as possible.

Thanks so much for your time and consideration!
