Jamtones Bear Down on Kickstarter

Just when you thought Josh and the Jamtones couldn't get more animated, they've started a Kickstarter campaign to make a movie from their CD, BEAR HUNT.

"Bear Hunt: the Mini-Movie!" will feature music videos, live performance footage and animated shorts based on the "adventure chapter" story skits from their recently-released album.

"It'll take the right animator for the job, which means raising an exorbitant amount of money to get a real pro (and/or pros!) in our corner," explains Josh Shriber in the introductory video.

"Kickstarter has quickly become the go-to business model for modern independent fundraising," adds bandmate Patrick Hanlin. "Through Kickstarter, we're able to bring this project directly to our fans...our beloved, ever-appreciated and downright handsome audience. This allows us to make the animated shorts that we want to make and it gives you the chance to be a part of making it happen from the very bottom floor."

At the time of this writing, the band is 25 percent of the way towards their goal of $12K. If you're in the mood, help the Jamtones help you. Here's a video glimpse of the band from their recent Symphony Space performance:
