Upgrading MODO for Short Film

$550 of $400 goal

Raised by 3 people in 13 months
I've been working on a short animated film since about 2012 (when it was first written). Lately I've been working on trying to finish it, however I've come to the conclusion that I need to upgrade my softweare of choice, MODO.

The last version I have of MODO is 902 SP3. The current version is 11.1v1. The latest version has several features that will help with the completion of the animated short.

So, seeing as how I've had terrible luck in trying to find a job this past year, and wanting to try and get this film finished before the end of the year, I have turned to GoFundMe to attempt to raise the money needed to purchase the latest version.

All money raised will be going towards the maintenance fee for the latest version of MODO. If more than what is needed is raised, it will go towards additional plugins for MODO. ie: The Hatchet Collection or the Polystein Kit.

The sooner I am able to raise the money, the sooner I will be able to finish the short and release it.

If you'd like to check out the blog that I've been writing about the short, it is available at:


Anyone who is able to help, I would be eternally grateful to you for making my dream of finishing this short come true!

Thank You!

Work continues. I ended up taking a break this past week, due to Thanksgiving here in the US and my Granddaughter wanting to spend the weekend with me.

The main ship is almost finished and final tweaks on the characters have begun. I'm hoping to get the new(er) animatic polished up and ready to go online later this week. The animatic that will be released _IS NOT_ the entire movie. I don't want you to see the whole thing yet! :-)
