The Adventures of Bionoid Blake Dermont is animated comedy webseries. It will be a parody or old time scifi radio shows
The Universe is in Grave Danger!
OK, well not really. But without your support this project will be. Hello, my name is Maurice Barnes. The Adventures of Bionoid Blake Dermont in the Great Beyond will be a animated comedy webseries on You Tube. The show is a parody of old time sci-fi radio shows, Saturday morning matinee serials and cheesy space shows or the 50's and 60's. I created Blake Dermont in 1995 for a radio show project in creative writing. It was a success! (Check out the original Blake Dermont!). Soon I was making copies for other people in the school and everyone was asking for more adventures of Blake and his friends. I began writing but never produced another show. As years passed, the thought of bringing Blake back forced me to flesh out a script and now I feel the time is right for our hero to return!
The concept is simple: Blake Dermont, everyday nobody and loser, is abducted by the evil Emperor Boagmoar and forced to become a super human hero to save the universe. Joined by his newly found love Isabelle and gun swinging sidekick Blitz, the trio will explore the strange galaxy of the Great Beyond and conquer evil in its many forms in order to find their way home. The Adventures of Bionoid Blake Dermont in the Great Beyond features all the cliches you will find in the old time radio shows and serials: the uber-manly hero, the frail heroine and the under appreciated sidekick. A host of other outlandish characters and "special guest villains" will round out the cast. Every story will be divided into a series of 10-15 minute episodes which will end with a "...tune in next week..." style cliffhanger.
The animation for the show will be done using a powerful program called DAZ3D. Although DAZ is capable of delivering top of the line realistic renderings, the animation for Blake Dermont will be kept very comic book looking and simple. Some of the "effects" will also be purposely made to look cheesy and low budget to go along with the parody.
Your generous donations will help bring this project to life. The majority of it will go toward the purchasing models and props from DAZ3D's website to create each character and environment. Other expenses include audio equipment and editing software and soundtrack production.
If funding is reached, rendering of the characters will begin immediately, as will talent casting (no I will not be doing all the voices myself this time!) If all goes well I hope to see the first episode ready for launch sometime in February or March.
This is has been a dream that I have been waiting to see come true for more than 15 years. Kickstarter and your support could make it real and give Blake Dermont and his friends to the world!
Thank you for you interest and support.
