Talented Film Creator Launches a Campaign to Produce His Inspired New Film "Paws of Nepal"

Smart Crowdfunding is slated to carry out strategic marketing initiatives for the ‘Paws of Nepal’ project on Indiegogo. This campaign is crowdfunding to produce a compelling new film with a powerful message about culture, love and humanity.


Los Angeles, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 12/30/2014 --A gripping new film titled "Paws of Nepal" is being introduced to the world via a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. This campaign has a funding goal of $350,000, which needs to be raised by January 20th, in order to produce the short film that tells a story about the plight of stray dogs in Nepal. "Paws of Nepal" was born from creator Mudran Eller's passion in this arena, and he plans to produce a film that not only tells a story but has a very profound social impact on viewers. Eller asks, "Do you believe that art should speak to the real concerns of our heart, such as animal welfare?" The entire team behind this project believe the answer to that question is yes. "It is for this exact reason that we are raising money for our new film, and for the street dog population in Nepal who were its main inspiration."

This film is based upon the real lives and struggles of the street dogs of Nepal, and tells the gripping tale through the eyes of a fictional "family" of dogs living on the streets. In the creators own words, "The viewers of the short film see these struggles play out against the stunning backdrop of an environment seldom showcased in animation: the urban Himalayas. The story takes the viewer to locations such as traditional Newari houses, sacred temples, and the busy streets of Kathmandu. It is with this campaign that, we wish to make our debut in the arts, with a touching story that has a broad appeal." This film will have universal appeal to people of all ages, with the main purpose being to raise awareness and do something that actually helps the homeless dogs in Nepal.

Eller has teamed up with Toon53 Productions in order to create this animated film. The entire team is working very diligently on this idea, but they need help to make it a reality which is why they are reaching out to the crowd through their crowdfunding campaign. A portion of the funds raised with this campaign will be used to build a shelter for the dogs, which will play a crucial role in getting them off the streets. As an added bonus with their campaign the team is running a referral reward program for all of their supporters. A "Paws of Nepal" supporter has the chance to win varying reward levels depending upon the amount of the successful referrals they send to the campaign. There are also several perks being offered which range in value from a "High Five" perk that allows a supporter to follow the campaign, to various merchandise items and the chance to be mentioned in the credits. Top supporters even have a chance to be in the film, or become the film's executive producer.
