Namibia Filmmakers Launch Indiegogo to Make Namation Project

Thirteen Mirabilis Marks Debut of New Animation Process


Windhoek, Namibia -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/23/2014 -- It's a new style of animation that's all encompassing – Namation, and Indiegogo campaigner and dreamer Esther Toini Amadhila hopes to bring it to life with the help of interested animation enthusiasts everywhere.

Namation is a style of animation influenced by Namibian culture, history, and mythical worldview. The 13 characters are derived from the 13 specific different groups of people found in Namibia and the name Mirabilis comes from the Namibian signature plant, Welwitschia Mirabilis which can live a thousand years in the harsh Namibian desert environment.

Just as the Mirabilis lives and thrives, Esther's dream of seeing this cartoon story come to life has lived and thrived despite not having the financing to make it happen. Being Namibian in America, Esther couldn't identify with any of the characters in the many cartoons and animated movies she watched over the years and that fueled her dream to one day make animated movies/series with a Namibian influence.

Esther will be working with the reputable studio Motion Bones, based in Windhoek, Namibia, to produce this movie. The money raised will cover general production, development of story board from script (shot blocking & cinematography), music/song production, animation edits, voice recordings, editing & production of audio score, 3D character creation/environment, creation & set dressing, animation (characters/camera/environmental effects/sets & props, rendering & composition and more.
