You can find many super interesting project on kickstarter.com - but not too many are related to storytelling... well actually, you could probably make a point that actually all are somehow related to storytelling since every project tells a story in order to get your money.
But that's not the point. I want to focus your attention at this wonderful project: StoryCorps' Animation Special.
About two years ago, StoryCorps, the national oral history project, began animating some of the favorite stories collected from our interview participants over the years. Airing on the PBS series POV, these animations bring a whole new dimension to the audio stories that air weekly on NPR’s Morning Edition and can be heard on storycorps.org. We’re now working on our first long-form animated special, which PBS has agreed to run in the fall of 2013. But - we need your help to close the gap on production funds so that we can finish the project and make it happen!
The project does indeed look very interesting.
