Crowdfunding has Pilgrims Progress being made scene by scene

A Pilgrim’s Progress animated film is being crowdfunded scene by scene.

Due out sometime in 2018, Cat in the Mill Studios is producing a full-length, CGI adaptation of John Bunyan’s seminal work, The Pilgrim’s Progress. Considered by some to be second only to the Bible, the story has been translated into more than two hundred languages. But to make the film a reality, the filmmakers are getting “scene producers” through Kickstarter campaigns.

Steve Cleary, Executive Producer of The Pilgrim’s Progress CGI adaption, is on a journey to see the film translated visually for believers around the world. Cleary’s unique vision for the film means that it is currently funded for twenty languages, and the latest update to John Bunyan’s story will be first made available to missionaries in the United States and abroad, and then delivered commercially.

The first two Kickstarter campaigns were a great success with over 1,300 backers.

With a 2018 release date, people who donate to the making of the film can get involved in helping make the film a reality by becoming a “scene producer” and donating. For those inclined, the Kickstarter campaign awaits, but more than anything, Cleary hopes that people will pray for the film and those whose lives it touches.
