We believe if you tell a great, funny and compelling story, and set it in this world of famous art, kids will be head over heels for it all. That is what ‘Art Story’ does.

Every once in a while, a movie comes along that sticks with a generation and “Art Story” is that movie. This animated film from Disney veterans Chuck Williams and Aaron Blaise tells the story of a boy and his grandfather getting trapped in a world of paintings and the many characters they meet along the way. As the characters venture around this imaginative world, the audience will be mesmerized by the places they go, and fall in love with the painted characters they meet. However, in order to get this incredible film to the next stage, the “Art Story” Kickstarter campaign needs the support of fans.

Unlike the majority of movies, “Art Story” is a film that both entertains and educates the entire family. Not only does “Art Story” depict the relationship between a boy and his grandfather, it also takes viewers on an artistic adventure. By pulling the audience into a painted world along with Walt and his Grandpa, “Art Story” transports watchers into the world that exists beyond the canvas. When Walt and Grandpa get sucked into the world of paintings, they travel through famous landscapes, such as Van Gogh’s “Starry Night,” and encounter famous faces, like Da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa.” With some of the best art directors ever working on this film, such as Van Gogh, Monet, Rembrandt, Picasso and many more, it is guaranteed to captivate an audience.

Since the classic pieces of art are usually lost on the younger generations “Art Story” is meant for, children will be introduced to these images and people in a unique way. Instead of learning art education while sitting in a classroom, young viewers will get to interact with these classic characters and journey through well known places from the comfort of their own home. “Art Story” exposes both children and adults to some of the most famous works of art of all time, such as Picasso, Escher, Dali, Warhol and more, making art education feel more like play rather than learning. With “Art Story,” the adventures of Walt and Grandpa, and all the places they go and people they meet, will stay with viewers for years to come.

“Aaron and I both have kids and we love art of all sorts,” says “Art Story” producer Chuck Williams. “Yet we always get the ‘it’s boring dad’ response when we try to get our kids interested in art. But we believe if you tell a great, funny and compelling story, and set it in this world of famous art, kids will be head over heels for it all. That is what ‘Art Story’ does.”

With only 15 days left to fund the film on Kickstarter, the creators behind “Art Story” need the support of the crowdfunding community to move into the next steps. The $350,000 the Art Story team hopes to raise in the campaign will go towards starting the process of writing a script, developing the children’s book, creating more artwork and producing a video presentation. Once these items are fully completed, “Art Story” will be unstoppable.

This animated film will be one for the ages, but can not happen without fans of all ages backing the Kickstarter project.
