Brothers Phillip and Tim Wade want to take you on a journey through the Alaskan legend of Adlivun populated by goddesses, ice zombies and yetis, but they also need your help to make it happen.

“The core of this project is the script,” said Tim, 18. “We’ve all seen movies that cost a ton of money to make that aren’t very good, but we know we have the story to make a good movie.”

The Stayton-born siblings already have more than $1,200 toward their $15,000 Kickstarter campaign for Winter Village: The Legend of Guillianna and nearly a three weeks left before it ends.

The animated film is a side project that’s become much more like full-time work, for Phillip, K-23 production manager. K-23 is Keizer’s local access public television station.
