If you've been struggling to find funding for your animated story, here's some good news and a potential helping hand.
Wellington boutique animation studio Floating Rock (responsible for the animation in the Westpac campaign pictured) was this year granted $1.5 million from its investors. The Floating Rock team, which includes WIFT member Stephanie Parker, plans to have its own IP division, and has launched the Floating Rock Pitchfest to get the ball rolling.
Not everyone has the funds or the team to make a series or a feature film, so Floating Rock aims to help people create a well-rounded pitch deck to take to distributors. The goal is to get the pitch funded and have stories produced at Floating Rock.
