James Lopez is a veteran Disney animator (The Lion King, Pocahontas, Paperman) who is trying to raise funding for his primarily hand-drawn short film, Hullabaloo, with hopes of eventually finding a studio to fund a full-length version.

From the film’s IndieGo page:

Hullabaloo is the story of Veronica Daring, a brilliant young scientist who returns home from an elite finishing school to find her father—the eccentric inventor Jonathan Daring—missing without a trace! The only clue left behind points Veronica toward Daring Adventures, an abandoned amusement park used by her father to test his fantastical steam-powered inventions. There she discovers a strange girl named Jules, a fellow inventor who agrees to help Veronica in locating her missing father and discovering the secrets of his work.

In addition to helping save 2D animation, Hullabaloo aims to encourage girls to explore science and adventure. The film’s two protagonists are both young women and both scientists who use their intellect, wits, and courage to fight greed and corruption. We hope that Veronica Daring and her friend Jules will serve as positive role models for girls of all ages and encourage them to get excited about science, engineering, and sci-fi.

Well, followers and fandom alike, I regret to inform you that this blog has reached 500 posts. As you all surely know, this blog was supposed to divert people (typically, unknowing of sourcing) to sourced posts as a means to spread posts with sources rather than continue the spread of creditless stray arts from users who either refuse to source (as seen on our blacklist) or have yet to make the appropriate corrections to their posts, but we never hoped for this blog to become this popular or gain this many posts. It brings us no joy to know that after nearly six months of our activity that little has changed. No, this is not a message of termination, but this is simply a message of regret, and a reminder to our followers and the fandom itself.

Sourcing is and always will be important. There are countless links in our resources tag that convey the message clearly and offer a range of ways to source from the share links on various websites to SauceNAO and reverse google image search. We still urge the fandom regardless of where they find images to source properly. If the site you find these works on is a forum based site or a complement of images (-booru sites, zerochan, etc.) or even sites such as weheartit or pinterest, those sites are not sources. Sources are often either sites where you can purchase the work or sites made for artist sharing (pixiv, deviantART, etc.) even tumblr itself can be a source, but only if the user is the artist which is easy to check through a few minutes of searching. Make the effort to source images before you post them. Avoid posting edits or gifs of works, as most are unauthorized by the artists. And remember to ask for permission to post works. There are countless guides for how to contact artists regardless of language barriers. Take the time and make sure to do your part in promoting the artists properly. Sourcing matters. Thank you for your time and, hopefully, your cooperation.
