DEEP FRIED MANNA Launches Kickstarter Campaign to Fund New App for Smartphones and Tablets

Los Angeles, CA –After experiencing the need firsthand for quality Christian apps directed at inspiring and entertaining kids, Emmy Award Winning Creative Director Jeff Matsuda and technology industry veteran Mike Su have launched a Kickstarter Campaign to fund DEEP FRIED MANNA. As the name implies, Deep Fried Manna seeks to create innovative and fun apps that teach Biblical values by using games and stories.

Matsuda, who won an Emmy for his work as Producer and Creative Director of The Batman cartoon series, realized the need for products like this right in his own home. “We as parents realized that when given a choice, our kids were increasingly choosing their iPads over traditional TV,” explains Matsuda, the 42-year-old father of three, “yet there were so few apps out there that taught them about God.”

While taking the idea to Silicon Valley technology investors seemed inviting, the business realized that they needed to reach out to others who share the same values. “Crowd sourced funding seemed to make more sense,” explains Su, who is also a father of three. “We’re reaching out for funding directly to parents who have been seeking this content since most traditional investors don’t understand the need. This is about making our voices heard, and letting the world know there is a market for quality faith based apps.”

Business Insider recently released a chart showing the increasing spread of revenue distribution across the app world. The article concluded that “Mobile apps are not a ‘sink or swim’ proposition,” and “The changing revenue distribution of mobile apps reflects the proliferation of the app economy in the past two years, but also a repudiation of the idea that you need to be in the top 25 of the app store to make any money.”
