Why Should you support me?
With your support here through Patreon, I'll be able to spend less time on client work and more time on the Shadow Magic project. That means faster production and earlier release, including exclusive perks for you! Have your name included in the credits, get cool limited edition items, exclusive giveaways and more to come! Join me on this ambitious journey. Together, we can create a beautiful 2D film that combines both Eastern and Western animation techniques with storytelling that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
Short Term Goal:
Animation is a ton of work. So far, everything has been done by myself and hiring help out of my own pocket when I can. I need to be able to set aside time and hire more help to produce 45-minutes of animation (released in 2-5 minute clips as-completed) for the Shadow Magic pilot episode (two episodes back-to-back to complete a story arc).

Long Term Goal:
To establish a full time anime studio outside of Japan. We're currently based in the film and animation industry hub of Vancouver, BC, Canada. We want to create a home for those passionate about working in this industry and make awesome content that YOU enjoy!
I am Tiffany Lei, an experienced industry animator and published manga artist and author. To check out my works, please visit the KAGE Productions Team page and the Press page for more information =D.
All Patreon funds go toward covering production costs including voice acting, music, layout and background art, and additional animators. As of right now, NONE of the funds generated here are going into my own pocket. I am not paying myself to do storyboards, designs, writing, voice acting, animation or any other part that I do. With enough support ($1500/mo), then, and only then, will I be able to reallocate funds toward my own work hours on this pilot. More funding from you means hiring additional help to expedite production =).
As of November, 2016, all voice acting recording fees have been covered thanks to your support through Patreon! All incoming funds are being assigned to the next stage: supplementary storyboard sequences, layout and background art.
