Hi folks,

Tony from Spite Your Face here. Maybe you know us from a lot of our LEGO work back in the day?

We've been producing a live action space-fantasy short called Yvette Horizon. A tale of vengeance, romance and interstellar pirates, it's set in an original far flung galaxy full of aliens, monsters and yes, stop-motion effects.

The project began with an outgoing budget of zero, but we've still pulled together a completed live action shoot that included prosthetic effects and life size puppetry. Continuing in that vein the post-production is going to mix digital effects with stop-motion and puppeteer and live-action, all interacting. Like a scratch built Return of the Jedi.

If this sounds interesting, then the completion fund is running here: http://www.indiegogo.com/yvettehorizon

For even a nominal contribution you gain access to detailed, ongoing production and behind-the-scenes updates, gain access to the finished film first, and in higher resolution than will be available elsewhere and a film credit and help ensure the production reaches you quickly. If we meet our goal we can finish by April 2013. Campaign ends Jan 1st, but please contribute now if you're even contemplating it! It's all for less than either of those coffees you've already had!

The stop-mo element is outlined in the video linked above, and is (currently) limited to a specific character, but will be acting directly with live actors in a Harryhausen/Phil Tippett capacity.

Cheers.
