Disney Veterans Create Hullabaloo, a 2D animated film to preserve classic animation style

Former Disney animation veteran James Lopez (The Lion King, Hercules, Paperman) is turning to fans for thgirl-550x349eir help in an all-new campaign set up for a potential new film, Hullabaloo. The possible film is an incredible new visual masterpiece, blending  incredible hand-drawn 2D animation with CGI (as seen previously in Disney’s Paperman short).

The traditional hand-drawn is said to be a dying art, these former Disney veterans decided to team up together to create this brand new film which they hope will restore 2D animation in film studios and bring 2D animation back into the public eye. But they need your help.

Some more info on the project, as seen on their Indieogo page.

Hullabaloo is a 2D (hand-drawn) animated steampunk film that hopes to help preserve the dying art of 2D animation; and by supporting this project, you get to help save 2D animation from an untimely demise. We want you to join us in making a short film that will showcase the world of Hullabaloo, which we can show to investors to fund a full length 2D feature. 2D animation is a beautiful but dying art form that the animation studios have all but abandoned. But if we can fund this film with your help, we will be able to show investors that people really do want to see a feature length animated steampunk film, allowing us to get the tremendous amount of funding needed to complete Hullabaloo as the full-length feature we believe you want to see.

The campaign has officially launched over at their Indieogo page, and they need fan donations to reach their goal of $80,00 to make this film possible. Please consider donating even a small amount to this incredible new ambitious project in order to restore 2D animation and bring it back to it’s rightful place. Every dollar counts, and we wish the best of luck to the entire crew of Hullabaloo.
