‘Dig Comics’ Hits Kickstarter To Fund A Full-Fledged Film Boosting Sequential Art
Back in 2010 ComicsAlliance talked to Miguel Cima about Dig Comics, his short film blending anthropology and evangelism with the express aim of getting more people -- especially Americans -- to read and love comics of all kinds. While Cima's initial roughly 20-minute short was successful at film festivals and comic conventions, it remained a labor of love as he and his team spent their own money and free time to produce and promote their message until the right financial backers could be found to bring a full-fledged feature or other substantial media project to life. Now, in today's crowd funding climate, Dig Comics is appealing to current comic readers and fans on Kickstarter to "to help educate, teach, learn, enjoy, evolve & carry on the positive, creative, comics torch into the future and beyond!" by funding a full-length Dig Comicsmovie.
