Luckily, ‘Art Story’ has awesome fans that are already supporting and sharing the project, we just need that final push to reach our Kickstarter goal.

“Art Story” is an animated movie that tells the tale of a young boy and his grandfather as they journey through the imaginative world of paintings, and has captured the attention of audiences of all ages. This entertaining and educational story is a movie that will stay with viewers for years to come; however, the film needs a successful crowdfunding campaign to move forward. As “Art Story” approaches its final hours on Kickstarter, creators Aaron Blaise and Chuck Williams hope to see a final push to reach their $350,000 goal.

During its 47 days on Kickstarter, news of “Art Story” has spread like wildfire, gaining the attention of major media outlets who became fans of the film instantly. The heartwarming film secured press in “USA Today,” “The Wrap,” “Hypable,” “Blouin ArtInfo,” “Animation Archive,” “Mickey Mouse Schoolhouse” and more. As “Huffington Post” said, “one of our greatest childhood dreams is about to become a reality. We’re not sure if you spent hours of precious youth dreaming of such a fantastic art-centric adventure, but we sure did.”

Over 1,400 backers agree that the captivating story of Walt and Grandpa’s adventures through the world of paintings is a journey they want to take. Fans are advocating for “Art Story” by supporting and sharing the project on Facebook, Twitter and more to keep pulling backers in to the addictive story. With over $335,000 raised and pledges continuing to pour in, the creators of “Art Story” are hopeful to reach their goal.

“We have the concept and a clear goal, we just need help getting to the next phase,” says “Art Story” director, Aaron Blaise. “Luckily, ‘Art Story’ has awesome fans that are already supporting and sharing the project, we just need that final push to reach our Kickstarter goal.”

The money raised through the “Art Story” Kickstarter campaign will go towards creating a script, a children’s storybook ready for publication, artwork for all the characters and worlds and a complete video reel of the story. However, to do this, “Art Story” has to reach its goal. With one day and less than $15,000 to go, “Art Story” needs the help of fans of all ages to crowdfund the remaining money.

“Art Story” is a tale that is already adored by thousands. Help bring this movie to life by supporting and sharing the project.
