According to Stockng.com, a kickstarter campaign was initiated to raise a sum of $15,000 for the pilot episode of the series, fortunately, $20,000 was raised. Amazing, $60000 was spent on the episode, 3 times the revenue they gathered from the kick-starter campaign.
According to the producer, Niyi Akinmolayan, “the teaser was meant to help him sell the comics for Roye Okupe, but when we finished it. It was too good for that. Meaning it could be much more than this. The potential was there”.
“We decided to try Kickstarter (a website that crowdfunds ideas) and raise money for an animated short”
