So this I would like to start as I can guess there are lots of new animators who ask "how do I fund my film?"

I myself am in the position of searching for a way to fund Wildlife on Mars, but how? I mean, should we could all get "normal" jobs, and save up, or should we apply to funding bodies, or perhaps, as Phil Tippet has done recently with Mad God, make a public donations account and reward people who pledge xxx donation to the project...or we could just marry a old millionaire?

Lets share our thoughts and results from previous searchs or maybe you've actually done something different to achieve funding?

Lets try make it a wee bit easier for the stop-motion animator to find and get the funding their projects deserve!

Congratulations Bianca, glad your having success. I'll try taking your advice and look around for opportunity's here.

Thank you, both. I don't mean it in a braggy way, by the way, just saying the funds are out there, just try and apply for everything. Sometimes festivals have competitions attached to them as well.

Perhaps we should start a thread with competitions and funding we find online whatever country it is?

some great points and answers here guys, keep them coming and Bianca, i defo think that having a online funding source thread actually would be a great idea :-) especially for people like me who have no clue where to start looking

That is an excellent idea!  I really like your cheap puppetmaking thread.

Right now I am working on my Master's degree in Creativity Studies and using student loan money to fund my research and production of stop motion and other animation.  Since I will be using stop motion and hand-drawn 2D animation for my Master's Project, it is a legitimate expense.

The only problem is that I have had serious health problems over the past two years which have caused me to have to drop out and start all over again each semester, or caused me to have to skip a semester before I restarted.  Hopefully my body will be healthier now and the health problems will all be behind me.
