If you follow me on social media, you’ve probably seen me posting about Desert Mirage for awhile now. It’s a feature-film directed by Michael Fredianelli that I’ve taken up animation duties on together with a team of skilled artists. It’s easily the most ambitious project I’ve become involved with due to the sophistication and amount of animation required. We’ve made a lot of progress bringing to life the movie’s cartoon cast (voiced almost entirely by the talented Jeremy Koerner!) and have about 70% of the film’s animation completed in its rough form. However to continue achieving the type of quality we’re aiming for and finish the film, we need your help. We’ve launched an IndieGoGo campaign for which will give us the means to raise the minimum amount of funding to get the film completed. Please check out our IndieGoGo page and its accompanying teaser video and consider donating to Desert Mirage! Every little bit you can provide will get us closer to achieving our goal. Even if you cannot donate, feel free to share the page and spread the word. All help is most appreciated!

Chad Kaplan
Artist | Film & Animation
United States
I was born and raised in the New England area and have been drawing for as long as I can remember. Art is my passion and I constantly strive to teach myself new methods and styles. In addition I have been watching films for most of my life. This became an obsession around the year 2004 and I embarked on the quest to try my hand at animation. Since then I have contributed animation to some independent film projects and I currently have a few new assignments in the works.
