There's no reason for them to need 30k for a flash series.It's not a Flash series, it's a live-action film.
Besides, the plot sounded retarded.
Also, they're incorporating CG animation and hiring pro animators for the job.
It's a big project, buddy.
It's precisely because people like us are fighting over whether we should fund it or not that Eiomaru's project didn't get through. I'm sorry, but what sets apart a project in the eyes of the people? They could've been much less spoilerific with the sub-plots than we expect, mainly because the project is in progress. A good main plot, tied in with solid themes, would win the day. We don't even know whether they had them to begin with, and we could've given them a chance, but what did we do? We just fought. Some people pledged, and at least that helped.
It makes me sick to the stomach when people do what they did. The people hosting the project are like you and me. They want to see a project of theirs take off. Chances are they are like a lot of us on this site: they couldn't care less about mainstream work, and they want to do something better.
Funding artists' projects is about risk. In many cases we won't know what the final result is until after we've funded them, until after the first part of it is up. What kind of attitude are we going to take, if that's the case? Optimism, that the project will be a blast? Pessimism?
A lot of people have to think about their actions towards the project, and I'm leaving my rant at that.
