Most of the work on "The Mirror" consists of: 1) writing and recording the in-depth, interactive flow chart "script" of the narration, and; 2) creating, animating and rendering all of the 3D graphics. Because the software is free (Blender for the animation, Reaper for the audio production), the main expense is just making it so I can afford to work full time on the project. (Since it will be given away for free to anyone and everyone, it's not something that will pay out when finished.) It's hard to tell exactly how long the project will take to complete--many months at least--and therefore it's hard to guess a dollar amount that will allow it to be completed. But as a rough figure, $30,000 would allow me to work on it full time for a year or more.

Here is a video which, although old, gives a general sense of what "The Mirror" does, and how:

Goals
$684 of $100,000 per month
The figure of $100,000 is a wild guess -- I tried to OVER-estimate the cost, instead of under-estimating -- of what I think it will take to complete "The Mirror," and release it for free to the whole world. Anyone will be able to go through the process, whenever they want, at their own pace, on any device with internet access. It will contain no advertising, and will cost nothing for the users.
