“If you are going to tell people the truth, make them laugh – otherwise, they’ll kill you” ~ Orson Wells
Over the last few months, we have been in discussions with a talented team of writers, graphics & voice-over artists and producers on the subject of Smart Meters and they have offered to produce a 3 minute cartoon for us to make the issue go viral. Their previous work has been seen by well over 1.5 million people, with their last video for NaturalNews.com achieving half a million hits across the Youtube channels where it is hosted (see below).
The styling of our cartoon – named “Smart Attack!” – will be similar to the GMO-a-Go-Go video (below), and will deliver an engaging, concise and informative message whilst poking fun at the Smart Meter programme’s absurd promises and recklessness. The GMO-a-Go-Go clip runs for 9 minutes but we are aiming for 3 minutes to make our message even more succinct. It will also be in full colour.
In order to get the cartoon made, we are asking for your help via this appeal for donations. There are some modest costs involved in licensing music, etc. and for each minute of video produced, approximately one month’s worth of work is required. So we want to try to remunerate the team for some of the time they are dedicating to this.
It is worth noting that the UK has set aside an eye-watering £100MN budget just to advertise Smart Meters – so we are truly in a David and Goliath battle here. If you would like to help us commission our deadly slingshot by making a donation, contributions of £30 or USD50 will make you eligible to have your name (or that of your own campaign) listed as an Associate Producer. For donations of £60 or USD100, your chosen name will appear as Executive Producer.
This is a great opportunity to get this issue and your own campaigns a lot more exposure. We are looking to get the script finished by the end of Feb and recording the voice-over before the end of March. The Animation will be made around the voice track.
We need to use all the chances we can get to raise awareness about this issue, and we believe the end product of this idea will be fantastic. If you want to be part of it, please use the link below.
