This is pretty stupid.
I've heard so many of the Newgrounds animators say this is just plain dumb, too.
The animators should seriously be ashamed to be asking for so much for a 30 minute animation.

What does that mean?

AVGN actually went to California and bought a bunch of location permits to film with the money he made...

Well, he didn't actually "make" any money. He E-Begged for it.

I hope you realize he used a lot of his own money for the movie as well.

As in, the money he HAS MADE from all of those AVGN episodes.

I don't care! I don't like fucking E-beggars! Make the movie with your own money, or don't make it!

Well this is just incredibly stupid and not worth the money. I don't like MondoMedia in the first place, but to pay them to draw their crappy, poorly animated cartoon is just stupid.

Fans decided to pitch in. It was a dream he wanted for a long time and a lot of fans also wanted this movie. It was a win-win. Besides that is what Kickstarter's purpose is, to collect money from fans and then Kickstarter supplies the rest (I think).

AVGN spent his money wisely and used it to film the movie and has been keeping his fans updated on it.

This Dick Figures thing with nothing more than Stick Figures and they're asking this much for it is ludicrous. AVGN wanted to make a big movie, something for theaters. These guys... are just unbelievable.

I get it. It's okay for internet God AVGN to E-beg, but not Dick Figures.

AVGN didn't even need to try and make this huge movie to make his fanboys happy. The whole thing could have just been him sitting on a couch reviewing a game. You know, the stuff that made him semi-famous in the first place. Fanboys wouldn't care.

Because the circumstances have nothing to do with it, no sir, not at all.

Yet simultaneously they cared enough to donate more than the amount needed for the movie.

Is it going to be a full length flash movie? If so, it seems like it would require a large budget, but not nearly as big as these people make it out to be. What do you need that money for anyway? Are you going to like hire the most expensive celebrities or at least some fairly well known people to do voices, perhaps? I imagine that's where most money comes from in animations, nowadays. I guess this guy's project has a pretty fitting name.

Because Dick Figures is a stick animation in which its main fans are 12 year olds

Yes...I know I'm 13, but I'm a sure serious one.

AVGN has been wanting this idea to go through for a long time, and he only asked for 75K. His fans were willing to give him more than enough to make his dream a reality, a REAL feature length movie, with many perks.

I pretty sure it doesn't cost that much to make a 30 minute flash cartoon about stick figures. Yes it costs a lot. But not THAT much.

Let me get this straight....

Forsaken City, which has an ANIMATRONIC Alien Hominid in it and CGI effects, costs 30,000$ to make, and didn't reach its goal.

AND YET, STICK FIGURES manage to pull in over 100,000$$$???????

How the Fu$k did THAT, no, how does that even WORK???????

Quite a few NGers have proved that a 30 minute flash movie cost zero dollars. If they need that much to make a lousy 30 minute movie about stick figures, we better see some celebrity appearances in that thing.

I dunno, it's true that Adam Philips did shit that put the first few minutes of their movie they put up to shame all on his own, but in their defense

You know what? I was just about to play Devil's advocate, but I don't think I can proceed from the example I just gave. If one man can do better work than an entire team on a budget of whatever he pulled out of his couch cushions than I don't know why they need that much money.

Dick Figures is funny, but I'm not shelling out money when I have my own IRL financial issues to deal with.
