Where the money goes
THE TOYMAKER is a project that luckily from its beginnings has counted with the support of the public and the critics; this has awaken the interest of some sponsors and possible co-producers. Recently we won the fourth place for the Public Prize and the second place for the Jury Prize in theAudience Awards, among more than 170 projects from all around the world. The honest support of the public has inspired us to create a crowdfunding campaign looking for $18.000 to shoot the documentary part, the fiction (live-action scenes) and the real scenarios where the animation will take place.
