UPDATE #2 , May 26, 2012 - Well, the IndieGoGo site shows that POE didn't quite reach the funding goal of $13,000, but it got close. Good luck to Michael Sporn as he continues to press forward with this independent animated feature.
*However, this just in from Michael Sporn:
"The amount shown on PayPal doesn’t reach the $13,000 goal requested, just $12,225. But several people had difficulty with PayPal and asked to just send me the money directly. With that additional $1450, we’ve definitely reached and passed the goal, and I couldn’t be happier: $13,675."
UPDATE #1 , May 25, 2012 - as of this writing only 8 hours to go. The POE project is at $12,175 , just $825 short of the goal of $13,000. That's doable if only 55 people give the minimum of $15.00 each. 42 people could put them over the top with $20.00 each.
I just donated to this project and I recommend my readers consider it.

"The Animatic, above, is a rough representation of animation in progress. It helps us tell the story. We hope to turn the many segments started into completed animation to be able to thrust the feature film, POE, into complete production. The money raised through
KickstarterIndieGoGo will do that for us and help satisfy the needs of the possible distributors and financiers who are already interested."
Director Michael Sporn has worked in animation since the early 1970's , first working with other notable Directors such as John Hubley and Richard Williams , and then running his own studio since the late 1970's . He also has one of the premier animation blogs which I highly recommend you bookmark and check frequently if you don't already have it:
