Do Your Part and Save Sally!

Image taken from

Saving Sally is a bittersweet love story dipped in a glaze of sci-fi and fantasy. It’s a familiar coming-of-age story told with super-stylized visuals. The project blends live action, 2d animation and an abundance of warm, fuzzy feelings to create a totally unique and loveable little film. Also, it stars Rhian Ramos and Enzo Marcos. So there.

Marty, the geek, is an aspiring comic-book artist who is secretly in love with his beautiful best friend, Sally, the gadget inventor. Like every love story, there are complications: Sally has abusive monster parents and a literal dick for a boyfriend, while Marty has the innate ability to do nothing about everything despite his vivid fantasies of defending the love of his life from the big bad world.

The guys at Saving Sally have been working on this for years and are now at the final stages of post-production, but need a bit of help financially to help speed up the process so the film can finally be completed before the year ends. The owner will be using the extra funds to buy back his internal organs, hire more people, and buy whatever it is that's needed to complete the project, including mixing the sound and putting together the music.

Check out their pitch:

For every donation tier, they're giving you digital art books showcasing the massive amount of art that goes into making the movie.
  • $5 (P205) - 1 Saving Sally Digital Art Book
  • $10 (P411) - 2 Saving Sally Digital Art Books
  • $15 (P616) - 2 Saving Sally Digital Art Books + Little Rocket Anthology
  • $35 (P1,438) - Personalized Original Monster Artwork
  • $350 (P14,377) - An Ultra Awesome Personalized Original Art Package + Saving Sally Digital Art Books + Little Rocket Anthology 
I love how these super talented guys also have a great sense of humor. Their jab at Sandara Park made me smile.

Help take Philippine animation to a whole new level and donate to the cause here. If you really don't have the  extra cash, send them some good vibes - they'd like that.
