An Avant-Garde Animated Feature Film Animated by One Person
"Grey Island is proof you can bring your characters to life and tell your own stories no matter who you are, where you live, or how big your following is."
2 years in the making, Grey lsland was produced on virtually no budget and is living proof independent animators can make a living off of their art and make their work stand out online no matter who they are.
The success of this film shows animators can bring their characters and stories to life outside of the studio system and without a traditional platform, even if you have little or no followers starting out. As an independent artist and storyteller, you can:
BRING YOUR CHARACTERS TO LIFE
You can draw, you can create, you can bring your characters to life! You don't need to be a master artist, you just need to use your imagination and put pen to paper.
BUILD A FOLLOWING FOR YOUR WORK
You can make your work stand out from the pack even if you don't think you're as good as other artists. People don't want you to impress them, they want you to be yourself!
TELL YOUR OWN STORIES
You can make your own animated series, shorts, or feature films and tell your own unique stories through animation.
MAKE A LIVING OFF YOUR ART
You don't need YouTube or funding from investors, you just need to make animation you believe in. Who would have thought?
