Ryan Khatam's "Johnny Rocketfingers 3" on Kickstarter - Jan 19 2015

One of the things we strongly encourage at The Academy is developing personal projects that can be crowdfunded. Many artists have used this method with great success including several of our past students. Ryan Khatam has been developing a video game franchise using a hand drawn approach for the production. His third installment of "Johnny Rocketfingers" is now on Kickstarter. Follow the link below to see the campaign and consider supporting Ryan's effort. You're invited to help spread the word as well through your own networks. Deadline is January 19 2015.


There's also a video on YouTube in which Ryan describes his animation process for the game.
