Kickstarter project to help fund StoryCorp animated special

A couple of years ago I reported that StoryCorp had begun creating animating some of their stories. They’ve continued to animate more, but now they want to create a long-form animated special and are asking for donations though Kickstarter to make that happen.

About two years ago, StoryCorps, the national oral history project, began animating some of the favorite stories collected from our interview participants over the years. Airing on the PBS series POV, these animations bring a whole new dimension to the audio stories that air weekly on NPR’s Morning Edition and can be heard on

We’re now working on our first long-form animated special, which PBS has agreed to run in the fall of 2013. But – we need your help to close the gap on production funds so that we can finish the project and make it happen!

Here?s their pitch:
