It’s important for little girls to know not every story has to be a love story and for boys to know that soldiers aren’t the only ones to triumph in war.

WHAT IS HULLABALOO?

Hullabaloo is a 2D (hand-drawn) animated steampunk film that hopes to help preserve the dying art of 2D animation; and by supporting this project, you get to help save 2D animation from an untimely demise. We want you to join us in making a short film that will showcase the world of Hullabaloo, which we can show to investors to fund a full length 2D feature. 2D animation is a beautiful but dying art form that the animation studios have all but abandoned. But if we can fund this film with your help, we will be able to show investors that people really do want to see a feature length animated steampunk film, allowing us to get the tremendous amount of funding needed to complete Hullabaloo as the full-length feature we believe you want to see.

In addition to helping save 2D animation, Hullabaloo aims to encourage girls to explore science and adventure. The film’s two protagonists are both young women and both scientists who use their intellect, wits, and courage to fight greed and corruption. We hope that Veronica Daring and her friend Jules will serve as positive role models for girls of all ages and encourage them to get excited about science, engineering, and sci-fi.

By helping us fund Hullabaloo, you get to help save 2D animation, you get to support a pro-girl and pro-science story, and you also get a boatload of cool stuff!

YES! I Just funded this, GO DO THE SAME! <3

Ooooo!  We got a badass over here!

I actually had someone say this to me.  I was like.  Show me something and then we’ll talk.  After a week had gone by I was like “so…  where’s this awesome animation you said you could do?”  He never responded.

"kid’s show"

I hate it when people say something isn’t a kid show just because it has some deep stuff in it. Believe it or not, kids aren’t dumbasses. They can understand concepts like this, and it’s important for shows aimed at them to teach them these things instead of just mindless garbage. Being deep doesn’t change it from being a kids show, it’s not wasting itself on kids for that reason. It’s teaching them, and that’s wonderful.

Kids shows SHOULD be like this.
