I'm very selective about posting crowd funded projects - but this one is worthy of your attention. Animator Donato Sansone is creating an art video composed of grotesque, surreal and abstract portraits. Check this out.

Italian visual artist and experimental animator Donato Sansone (aka "Milkyeyes") has produced some amazing short films (see embed above) and now has embarked on another project - an "experimental art video composed of grotesque, surreal and abstract portraits". He is currently trying to fund this through Indiegogo - and I think its worthy of support. (I'll only post very selective crowd-funding projects on Animation Scoop).

Here's how Sansone describes it on his Indiegogo pitch:

"I want to make a new project, that compared to my previous works is not exactly a short film, but rather an experimental art video, that could become a film festival product, an online viral video or art video installation.  Basically it's a composition of several tridimensional portraits done out of a simple still picture; in the making i will merge painted art with digital art to get an esthetically fascinating result."

The video below shows clips from Sansone's other work and the try-dimensional portraits he has in mind. It looks pretty cool to me. If you want to help him out, click here.
