Help Kickstart Dash Shaw's film The Ruined Cast

Dash Shaw - The Ruined Cast

You can help Dash Shaw make his animated feature film The Ruined Cast and receive some great pledge gifts (including having your likeness drawn as an "extra" and having a private movie screening with co-producer/filmmaker John Cameron Mitchell if you're a richie-pants) by contributing funds via Kickstarter. Why does Dash need to raise money this way? So he can raise more money. He explains:

"We’re raising the resources to get the project in its best shape to present to production financiers. We’re making a movie that's difficult to compare to another, so the burden of proof is on us to illustrate it first. This takes funding for materials, production space and labor. We’ll be able to acquire the equipment and supplies to start creating elements of the film. As the teaser suggests, the movie will be painstakingly animated by hand — it requires paints for backgrounds, lots and lots of paper, lots of pens, scanners, and cameras to capture 'live' paintings. Your contributions will allow us to lay the groundwork to bring this to life."

Co-producer Howard Gertler says "Whether or not you can contribute, Dash, John, [co-producer] Biljana [Labovic] and I would love for you just to get to know the project better — it's only the beginning of the journey for a visionary film that's been a joy and honor to be working on." The video teaser and much more information can be seen on the Kickstarter page.
