I’m intrigued by the idea, but the pitch video isn’t all that well put together, which I think could hurt contributions.
But, I’m just one voice; check it out for yourselves and, if you’re sold, chip in via the link below.
In brief, the filmmakers are raising funds for an animated series, as well as a video game based on the series.
The story, via the project’s campaign page, goes: Hopeskin, a planet distant from Earth, is turned into chaos as the king is struck with a rare disease and a new bloodline begins to ascend to the throne for the first time in 3,000 years. Sensing danger and desperately seeking the remnants of the king’s bloodline which have been scattered throughout the galaxy, "The Royal Circle" performs a forbidden ritual. Zeinshaw Rollin, a sixteen year old high school student, is thrust into a power struggle and is faced with a choice; take an enemy’s life and solve your problems; or spare a life, gain a companion, and lead by example… Now that the true bloodline of Hopeskin is awakened, the inner energy stirs mystic spirits giving way to the proof of legends from centuries long since past.
You’ll find a lot more info, including images, on the project’s Kickstarter page here.
The campaign has raised 19% of its $75,000 goal with not much time left – just 2 weeks. So check out the pitch video below, and to contribute, click the link above, or within the widget below:
