What happens when an American record producer, one who produces records for the likes of Elton John and k.d. lang, sets out to produce a music driven animation project by teaming up with the Japanese animation house Studio 4°C, and crowd funds the project with Kickstarter?
If Greg Penny can pull this off, he'll show the world that even with anime, a variety of genres can be made that can excite animation audiences worldwide. Project:13 is a music driven animation project that debuts as a trilogy of three 5 minute music video / mini movies, driven by strong songs with global hit potential.
Greg Penny"s company, Siwa Productions is seeking public funding of $390,000 to complete the project. Interested contributors may pledge their backing through Kickstarter. The first four contributors to donate $5,000 each will be offered the opportunity to be animated as a cameo character in one of the Project: 13 episodes.
