You know what? This animation looks like it could be a really great series.
The One Minute Fly is based on the 2008 One Minute Fly animation. It’s about a fly – with 60 seconds worth of life – and his attempt to accomplish everything he wants before he dies.
If you haven’t seen the original, it’s worth a watch! It’s pretty funny. And weirdly humbling.
The creator, Michael Reichert, is crowd-funding via Indie Go Go here. They are hoping to raise 32,615 Euros (approx. $40,500 USD) by December 22nd, 2014 to produce six episodes over the course of a year. They have raised almost 10,000 Euros so far.
Each of the six episodes will cover the short life of a different character.
The animations will be 2-3minutes long and free to view on their YouTube site.
I’m really keen to watch this! It represents everyone’s life struggle to ‘live it to the fullest’… Whatever that really means… And the race against the clock.
I think this is worth giving generously to. Animation is a fascinating art form, and I think they’ll do it well.
