‘Urbance,’ ‘Go! Samurai’ Hit Crowdfunding Goals

Kickstarter benefactors have risen to the challenge once again for two high profile animation projects this week. Firstly, Joel Dos Reis Viegas and Sebastien Larroude’s graphically sharp “electro hip-hop” concept Urbance passed its $189,000 CAD (approximately $166,000 USD) goal to fund a pilot with less than 40 hours to spare, going on to pass the $200k CAD mark thanks to over 3,000 backers.

Meanwhile, as anime hub Crunchyroll reports, Keiichiro Kimura’s short film project Go! Samurai has already topped its $10,000 goal less than halfway through its fundraising period. The 76-year-old legendary animator/designer aims to create his first short entirely hand-drawn in pencil by himself. The project organizers estimate the film will take about 2,000 frames to run through the five-minute sequence of a lone samurai defending his life against 100 vicious enemies.
