A lot of people know Simon’s Cat and most of them are cat owners.
Simon’s Cat is an animated web series and YouTube Channel that features the mischievous and often hilarious antics of a fat white Cat, his side-kick the Kitten and his long-suffering owner, Simon.
Currently the team behind Simon’s Cat releases eight episodes on YouTube per year. What most of the fans do not know is that each of the 1 – 2 minute YouTube films take 7 – 9 weeks to produce, excluding development. These films are mostly funded by the revenue generated from YouTube advertising and the sale of Simon’s Cat merchandise.
But now the Simon’s Cat team want to realize an 11-minute film – in color. The title ‘Off to the Vet’.
‘Off to the Vet’ tells the story of how Simon’s Cat instinctively knows a trip to the vet is imminent and the lengths he’ll go to avoid it. For long-suffering Simon, it is a day he dreads as he is forced to try all kinds of tricks to get Simon’s Cat to cooperate.
This project needs funding and that is why Simon’s Cat has started a Fundraising Campaign on IndieGoGo:
With different priced perks – starting at 5 GBP, going up to 10,000 GBP – you can contribute to the campaign. But you are not just contributing money. Each perk has a value to the funder. For a 5 GBP contribution you get exclusive online preview of ‘Off to the Vet’ and exclusive Behind the Scenes Blog (Online Preview & Funder Blog), for 25 GBP you get a signed hardback copy of the Indiegogo Funder Edition of Simon’s new book – ‘Simon’s Cat: Off to the Vet’ and afull set of 5 Limited Edition Simon’s Cat Collectable Cards and HD Download of the ‘Off to the Vet’ film’ and all £10 Perks (Signed Hardback Book!).
More information and details on the perks and what you will receive as a funder in return can be found on the IndieGoGo campaign page.
The campaign on IndieGoGo runs until 6 August 2014, 11:59 pm PT.
