There is a crowd funding page associated with this project run by Imperious Films. Simon already managed to crowd fundone earlier project. To me this crowd funding looks more like an offer to pre-order a personal copy of the movie rather than to cover the production cost. Good idea.
This is the beautiful result of a 1st year university project to create a video to go alongside a given prose. Charlotte Emerson made a shadow cranky, animating Lewis Carroll’s The Hunting of the Snark. She uploeded it to YouTube on 2016-05-12.
