Hi, I’m Abigail Baird, the creator of Aerial Animation. Performing aerial acrobatics in front of projected animation, I create the illusion that I live inside an animated world. Aerial Animation tells dreamlike stories that feel like opening your favorite book and watching as the adventure comes to life before your eyes. The audience joins my adventure and together we escape a bear, swim faster than a sharp-toothed shark and ride a pegasus through clouds before falling asleep on the chin of the moon. Aerial Animation is a Story Like No Other Story, it’s Everyone’s Story.

There are endless ways to expand and I have ideas! My first goal is to create a 20-minute show. To do this I need to give Aerial Animation all of my attention. I want to create an animated circus. I want to pull rabbits out of a hat and get shot out of a cannon. Don’t you want to see me get shot of a cannon?

Here’s the catch. Animation is expensive. Like “buy a boat” or “put a down payment on a house” kind of expensive. So I’m looking to you for support. Your monthly donation, whether large or small, will help fuel my big ideas.

Aerial Animation competed through the Semifinals of Season 9 on “America’s Got Talent”. My live performances received standing ovations and had Howard Stern on his feet exclaiming, “I love your mind... I love it!”

The exposure provided me with the courage to promote my company and we combined each of our 2-minute performances to create one cohesive act. Over the last year we have traveled to Asia, Africa, the United Kingdom and performed all over the United States. All of that world travel for one 6-minute act… imagine where we could go with a 20-minute show!

I am a fighter with a will to succeed. If it means working harder, I get up earlier. But I can’t do it alone. As the sole proprietor and lead performer of Aerial Animation, I need to hire animators, acrobats and musicians to create each performance. These talented people have skills that are valuable. This means I need to pay them for their work. I also need to eat because let's face it food is an important part of creating good art. It feeds the brain.

With your support I can make Aerial Animation my full-time job. All of your support is appreciated and every little bit helps. Check out our contribution options on the right to see the personal ways we will recognize your donation.

My drive to create something the world had never seen before led me to the greatest achievement of my career. But the true accomplishment of Aerial Animation is the reward of inspiring others. This company speaks to the heart of who I am and it is the gift that keeps on giving. With ingenuity and dexterity I can expand my horizons, accomplish even more and bring new imagery to my story. Help me make the impossible achievable.

Performing aerial acrobatics in front of projected animation, I create the illusion that I live inside an animated world. But right now we have to rehearse with the animation projected on the wall. I need a rear projections screen! With your contributions I will be able to purchase a screen and hang it in the space. This new addition to our studio will allow my rehearsals to better reflect the performance and grant me more detailed accuracy for future development.
