Zippy Frames is creating animation journalism

$32
per month
Zippy Frames was launched in September 2011, with one very specific aim in mind: to promote European and US/Australasian independent animation worldwide, a severely under-represented area in film and animation journalism. 7 years later, we now have more than 2,600 articles in our Zippy Frames database, and a wide international exposure. Still, this is a personal and group effort that needs to get its full support in order to sustain itself and expand.

Here's just one glimpse of the areas we cover:
  • Instant news coverage
  • thorough animation film reviews
  • comprehensive and updated animation festival coverage
  • interviews with independent animation filmmakers
  • short films and projects in production
  • awards
  • co-production opportunities
  • academics and animation (conferences, symposia etc.) 
We are proud of our visibility, but we need your help to continue in a high-spirited manner, always up-to-date, and employing the utmost level of professionalism in what we do.

Zippy Frames is one of the fine online resources on European and Independent Animation;  our support will help sustain the efforts of our team, and give us more time and energy to develop what we know how to do best -and we are grateful for that.

That's right, our team will prepare an e-book just for you with this awesome support in place. We'll cover director profiles of contemporary European and Independent animation directors, to use it as your guideline to the marvellous work of artistic animation. And, of course, you'll get all the previous awards as well. Our monthly schedule will be the following: 
  • First month mark: A signed e-card from all our team
  • Sixth month mark: Our (tentative) book contents 
  • Nine month mark: Directors' filmographies with links to guide you through
  • Twelve month mark: Get a glimpse of our first articles 
  • Eighteenth month mark: Our e-book is ready
Goals
$32 of $3,000 per month
If we ever achieve this, that would really mean a lot to our Zippy Frames effort. We'll be able to work with a bigger team, attend all big events, present new web features and sections, and become more updated and relevant than ever. Let's discuss all these in due time.
