Osiris Chronicles, the Slender Man based video series, now hoping to finally jump to High Definition!
The Slender Man mythos revolves around an internet created urban legend about a creature quite appropriately called "The Slender Man". Since his introduction in a thread centered around photoshopping creepy images in pictures, the idea spread into multiple media formats. Now, YouTube Slender Man Video Logs(vlogs) and many blogs dedicated to the Slender Man are continuing to spread the urban legend around. Recently, a handful of indie movies have been in production, and a freeware game has been made, showing that Slender Man can be adapted to all sorts of media.
Which brings us to my project, The Osiris Chronicles. You may know it as that Slender Man Vlog that first did the spider leg tentacle effect, or the introduction of the Black Eyed Kids into the Slender Man mythos, or as the series that introduced a chess game motif. Maybe you know it as the one where the camera man fell off a second story roof. If you don't know us, I have our YouTube linked at the bottom of the page.
We want to make the series bigger, more impressive, crisper, and cleaner. Our goal is to have a video series made that looks just like movie theater quality found footage films on a very small budget. Until now, we've gotten by on almost nothing. Our ideas have exceeded our budget, and we need help.
We basically want to give the entire series a facelift. As some of the videos on the YouTube channel and the trailer linked above, we have a lot of innovative ideas, but lack the funds to actually pull them off as well as we know we can. I want to bring back some effects, such as the tentacles being used as legs effect, but with so much more going on than what I did last time. I want to have Slender Man be able to throw a car at the camera. I want to expand the scenes with the Black Eyed Kids. With your help, I can further bring innovation into the Slender Man mythos.
The money pledged will be used on things such as an HD Camcorder, prop upgrades, and improved editing software.
The series itself can be found at http://YouTube.com/user/OsirisChronicles and I'll have a video up shortly, containing a montage of moments from the series.

Jul 20, 2012 - Aug 19, 2012 (30 days)
Pledge $5 or more
My eternal gratitude.Estimated delivery: Aug 2012
Pledge $10 or more
Basically, since I really don't have much money, and this isn't a huge goal, anyone who donates money will be thanked in the final credits of the series, and if they'd like, will get sneak peaks to behind the scenes footage and other small goodies as a token of my appreciation.Estimated delivery: Oct 2012
Pledge $30 or more
You will get a free Blu-Ray of the series upon its completion, along with your name in the thank you credits on the little book insert that comes in the cases. It will be in an official looking Blu-Ray case, so it will fit right alongside your other Blu-Ray movies. Since I am not going to reveal when the series will end, the delivery date is obviously not the final one. The Blu-Ray will not just be all of the YouTube videos mashed onto a disc. There will be bonus content, including deleted and never before seen entries, and commentary, as well as some other goodies. We'll even sign them for you guys!Estimated delivery: Dec 2016
Pledge $60 or more
You will receive the Osiris Chronicles Blu-Ray pledge reward as well as an Osiris Chronicles T-Shirt. The shirt will feature the series logo on the back, with "Osiris Chronicles" on the front, or vice versa. I will take small requests into consideration for the T-Shirts. The T-Shirt will be sent quickly after they are made, but the Blu-Ray still has an unknown ETA.Estimated delivery: Dec 2016

Getting into the "I don't expect anyone to be this epic with their pledges" territory, pledging $150 nets you all of the above rewards, as well as a name drop within the series, and the ability to title one of the future videos(meaning, you get first dibs at seeing the video as well). Obviously joke names and video titles won't be accepted. Oh yeah, and you get a signed poster. Even Pixi the dog will sign it!Estimated delivery: Oct 2012

I write you into the series. You will be in a short story arc of the series and will have some creative control over the character you would play. I am planning a road trip story arc, and maybe you can be in there! Or, if you live close to the Chicago suburbs, or could get there, you could be on location for your camera time! Since such a thing is fluid, the date here is subject to change as well, but again, I strongly doubt anyone would pledge this much anyway. You also get all of the other aforementioned rewards.Estimated delivery: Feb 2013
