The Dragon’s Lair Indiegogo Campaign is officially shutting down tonight. As of right now, they are at $680,021.00 dollars! Don Bluth and Gary Goldman have had the highest hand-drawn animation crowdfunding campaign ever! Filled with tons of great perks. Rewards including cels, animation drawings, blu-rays, maquettes, posters, and so much more. I personally am proud I got to be part of this endeavor. Don Bluth and Gary Goldman are amazing people with huge hearts. I can’t remember the last time I have been treated so kindly and felt humbled by a workplace such as Don Bluth Films.

If you are interested in getting yourself some Bluth goodies, now is your last chance!

Here is the video when Dragon’s Lair hit a half of millions dollars:

We wanted to give a BIG thank you to everyone who has supported us here on Indiegogo. It has been a great ride and we are humbled by all your support! We will be doing more updates here and on our “Members Only” blog as we get really close to finishing the pitch presentation.

We are working hard packing and shipping all the perk rewards. We are almost finished sending out all the “Animation Collectors” rewards. Once we complete that we will be working on all the stand-alone perks.
