Kickstarter Project

July 15, 2010

The Project Oliver web series was able to launch largely because of the generous support of 85 people who believed in the project and wanted to help build Oliver a new home. In May 2010, filmmaker Andy Cockrum posted his idea for a web series on, a website where filmmakers, artists and musicians can pitch and potentially fund their projects.

Thirty days after posting “Home for Oliver” (now called “Project Oliver”), the web series exceeded its funding goal and raised $4,849 with the support of more than 85 backers from all around the world. The money goes towards the design and implementation of a website and the editing of the web series over a six-month period. Additionally, some funding may be spent for travel to sanctuaries around the country.
