Bendito Machine began life as an art project, a short film, about the foolishness of human conflict. It’s now a series about simple people who need their machines to survive and who are governed by idiotic big heads who fail to understand how little they know.
I was a backer to a failed KickStarter project for the Bendito Machine. It asked for $30,000 and came up with less than half.
However, Jossie Malis, simply tried again – a new KickStarter, that promised less and asked for less. It closes today and will be a success.
Bendito has also managed to attract a giant name from the land of geek. Neil Gaiman will be make a guest appearance on the next episode. We’ve seen some of the “test animation” (screen grab below) that features Gaiman but it’s not currently clear how else he’ll star – whether he’ll say anything – or what his character might do.
Certainly one to watch.
