Kickstarter Campaign For Adventures in Plymptoons

In the spirit of the independent music I write about, I was compelled to feature this Kickstarter project because it reeks of DIY gone right. Determination, conviction, and a little humor go a long way, and independent filmmaker Alexia Anastasio has all that and more.

Her documentary Adventures in Plymptoons about Oscar-nominated animator Bill Plympton is currently in post-production and needs additional funding. Alexis hopes to achieve her goals through an inventive Kickstarter campaign that brings fans and donors into the fray. She is willing to give her all to achieve her goals, including shaving her beautiful hair and fashioning a Mohawk.

Alexia’s enthusiasm for this project is contagious. She celebrates and is inspired by Bill Plympton’s career as an independent filmmaker and is making this documentary with the same independent spirit. All filmmakers, artists, and musicians should take note and be inspired.

Alexia’s Kickstarter campaign is absolutely worth a click to view. It features some takes with Bill Plympton and anecdotes by a few of his voice-over team edited with clips of Plympton’s animated world.

Even if you don’t have the funds to help her achieve her goals, you can help spread it around through networking.
