Heyo,

Just wanted to say I've watched all your assorted animations for Pink Lemonade and I can't wait for when it comes out, btw, just how much do you think you'd need donation-wise? I can't promise anything, but I'd like to see this come about fully.

Anyways, great work you've done here, keep it up, eh?

Funding an animation fully would take thousands of dollars. For a larger studio, Jan Scott-Frazier says:
"It depends on the level of quality. It ranges from $75,000 for really awful stuff up. It's not worth talking about unless we're talking over $125,000. At $250,000 it starts to look good. At $350,000 it can be used as an OVA. For $1.5 million we could do Ghost in the Shell quality feature film animation."

However, I could do a 30-minute OVA for a bare minimum of $10,000. But that would be more of an investment, not a donation. For an individual's donation I can't expect much, but added together, it can help keep a roof over my head and food in my stomach so I can work.

Although any amount is helpful, for any contribution of:
    $5 to $20 or more, you can have your choice of a special desktop wallpaper on the Pink Lemonade site.
    $25 or greater, a wallpaper and I'll list your name in the credits of the current production as a token of appreciation. (Specify how you want to be listed)
    $50 or more will land you a wallpaper, a credit, and a complimentary copy of the video containing the credit (on DVD).
    $75 or more for a wallpaper, a credit, a copy of the DVD, and a sketch of the White Radish character of your choice! (Specify which character, and pose).
For larger amounts, you'll of course get all of the above, plus extra gratitude, and perhaps more if you have a reasonable request. :D For donations, I have 2 Paypal accounts: One personal account radish@clickass.org (which you can use as long as you didn't fund your balance via credit card), and a Premiere account for credit card, paypal@whiteradish.com.

Okay, the donation page is now online, along with one new free wallpaper, and one to be given for a donation!

Prices in proffesional domains are always so high
but none of us could ever hope to be paid such amount of money.

A web site devloped by a local company ask for a price with 5 digit or more.
Yet the same site ordered on the internet very rarely go beyond the thousand
same goes for the cartoonists
same for goes for animators.

Oh I can hope. I just haven't gotten that much yet!

A major reason those prices are so high is that it typically takes a large number of people to create something like that. Split amongst all the people involved, the price looks a lot more reasonable.

Another Question

Postby Deglorath » Tue Apr 27, 2004 1:14 am

Just how many people would you need? Voice actors, Animators, Editors, such and such, what would it all come out to?

And which are the most expensive ones?

Well, I think the most expensive would be animators. But just at the moment I'm in the middle of a very large paying project, and cannot work on PL for about a month. But remember those numbers I was mentioning before in this thread (the one Kern couldn't believe were possible)? He had to eat his words on that one!

WHAAAATT!!!!!

Postby Wizard_of_Shnoz » Thu Mar 10, 2005 11:41 am

So U guys are saying that even a short anime done in flash takes a shit load of cash and personnel!? Damn! And here I was thinking that I could make over the summer once I learned how to draw properly and got my hands on some animation software. :P
"Sigh" I even had a backstory all thought up, with characters taking shape.
Well I guess I'll have to moth ball my ideas for a couple of years, and wait till i have the resources.
mean while I gotta study for my IGCSEs *sweatdrop*

BTW if I can spare the cash i'll see if I can make a donation.

No, what it takes is time and skill. To be done quickly, it takes a lot of focus, which means either having several people working on it, or one person working on it as their sole occupation. Naturally, such a person needs income to survive. This wouldn't stop a skilled individual from completing a masterpiece with no money -- but it takes a lot longer that way.

Oh then thats ok. after i'm done with IGCSEs I'll have plenty of time to develope skill, which is really the only thing I need (other than money).
I've dabbled in comics before, my last six panel short was AWFUL, the best drawn character was a megalomaniac sock puppet! *sweatdrop*
