Help Us Launch Vivid Imagination Studios

Dan Bodenstein and Ron Robrahn have known each other since grade school. Growing up they dreamed of creating stories, cartoons, comics and other works of art together. With your help they can do it. 

We are currently working on several projects that we desperately want to bring to the world, and present at a local convention next year. We also want to sell our work online so all the world can see it.

We are always coming up with new ideas, below are a few of the projects we are currently working on and want to launch as soon as possible.


Project : I Love You Puppy - A traditional rhyming bedtime story centered around a small child and a toy plush dog. Each page is brightly illustrated and portrays one of the many adventures they go on together using their imagination. We are hoping to tie this project into physical plush toy of the dog in the book. (Planned completion is Summer 2014)

Project : The Adventures of Buc Buccaneer  - Created in the style of "Winnie the Pooh", this illustrated story tells the tale of a courageous young rooster who is searching for his place in the world. Filled with colorful characters, pirate treasure, and magical creatures, the story helps us discover who we are, and how our decisions shape our lives. (Spring 2015)

Project : Eartha the Sea Turtle : The Game - Based on the characters from Dan's first book, The Tale of Eartha the Sea Turtle, it is an endless runner game that teaches us about ocean conservation by helping us guide Eartha through the ocean, avoidingtrash, motor boats, and sharks. Special rounds allow kids to do a virtual ocean clean up and earn points. Points are redeemable for new skills that Eartha can use while navigating several ocean landscapes. (November 2014)

Project : Posters - Dan and Ron have been compiling a list of unique poster ideas for over 3 years now. It is there dream to create these, print them, and sell them online and at conventions. As a supporter, you will havefirst look at the designs as they are being created. (Individual releases throughout 4th Quarter of 2014-2015)


Our goal is to raise money for products and services we need to make these projects come to life. Some of the items include. 

Story Editing services
Game developer services
Printing services
Graphic software upgrades
Marketing materials


If you donate $25.00 or more, you'll be eligible for a reward. Your reward will be any one of our products. (Whenever possible, we will sign those items.)
If you donate $50.00, you're eligible for 2 rewards, and it goes on and on from there. Isn't math fun?


There are no guarantees in life, except death and taxes. All I can do is promise you we will do our best to bring these projects to life. Through Totem Tales Publishing, we have already published two children's books. We are confident we can get these new projects out, and available to the public.


Other crowd-funding services work on an all or nothing level. GoFundMe allows us to use whatever funds we receive right away. This allows us to continue working while rasing money. We don't need to wait till the end of the campaign.

Everyone who donates will have their name on our website thank you page.
