Kickstarter funding for the history of Victorian Taxidermy and Mr. Walter Potter..




A bit late to this Kickstarer event, which fortunalty met its funding request, but if one is intersted, there is still six days (as of this writing) regarding a biography of one of the best known anthropomorphic taxidermists of the Victorian era, Mr. Walter Potter!  I shan't belabor a narrative, especially since the web locale Morbid Anatomy did a splendid job of providing depth and nuance of the gentleman's history.  As such, I would recommend a visit to Morbid Anatomy's two articles regarding Mr. Potter, located at:
http://morbidanatomy.blogspot.co.uk/2013/06/new-documentary-on-victorian.html
and
http://morbidanatomy.blogspot.com/2013/07/victorian-anthropomorphic-taxidermist.html ... and a visit to the endeavor's successful Kickstarter page, located at: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/raygun/the-taxidermy-wonders-of-walter-potter-a-short-fil/  ... Do enjoy!

Great write-up! This actually sounds like excellent research material for my own project.

I'd like to get in touch with you, but I'm finding no email information. Can you write me so I can respond?

Hello, I can't seem to find an e-mail to contact the webmaster, so my apologies that I had to write it as a comment.

I would be very appreciative if you could announce the fundraiser as a story on your blog site.
I have an indiegogo campaign for my new steampunk short film currently in production. It is called "Trip to the Moon" and it's a remake/re-imagining of the 1902 film by George Melies.

Here is the link to the fundraiser:
