A masterpiece in Korean indie animation, the There She Is!! series was first introduced to me on Newgrounds. It has since been remastered in HD for YouTube, and was neatly wrapped up in its 5th and final episode. However, an opportunity to crowdfund a bonus 6th episode and a DVD of the series arose, and I couldn’t pass it up.
Digital rewards, including the wallpapers, have been distributed.
The 6th episode premiered exclusively to backers, on Newgrounds, starting from August 15, 2020.

The t-shirt, DVD, and other physical rewards were later sent out, and I even opted for the art book in the store where ordering additional rewards was an option.

DuoCartoonist are two animators who made quality MLP-related content using Toon Boom software. They had a special Patreon tier for animators, giving away Photoshop brushes, tools for colouring in images quickly, and puppet rigs.
After a couple of months backing the tier described above, DuoCartoonist shut down their Patreon and seemingly disappeared from the internet.
Rewards: Physical copy of the blu-ray

Don Hertzfeldt is an animator who used to focus primarily on making animated cartoons where all the drawings were done on paper (but he does draw digitally now). He has been featured in a couch gag on The Simpsons, but he is mostly known for his short film Rejected. As all the DVDs featuring collections of his short films were sold out, this campaign to create a blu-ray of his work was definitely not one to miss.
The blu-ray arrived at my place on March 29, 2016.
It contains the full version of It’s Such a Beautiful Day, World of Tomorrow, and his short and student films, all remastered specifically for the blu-ray.
There was also a cardboard insert and mini-booklet about the World of Tomorrow film inside the sleeve.
I tweeted about it here:
