Hey there Kickstarter, nice to finally see you again. Hope and Mayhem has been busy moving offices (not to mention a few houses) and found ourselves pretty swamped. Not to fret though, we are back up and running.
So... You want to know what we've been talking about?
You. You guys. You're on our mind, all the time. We can't stop thinking about You. Even the new guy. We really want to make this project happen, so much so we got a little excited and slung it at the wall (prematurely even) to get the ball rolling. You get the jist, sure, but we could have been a little clearer. We know, our bad....
So here is the gameplan: We are making a calendar, inspired by superheroines. Comics is this nice, still visual medium, and we want to lift it from the page and bring the shiny tights and capes into the real world. Why not movies? We LOVE movies, but 9 out of 10 are already using real actors and setting (or they are successfully tricking us.) They already get to move and talk and do all kinds of great things in realistic settings. Plus, don't tell anyone I told you this, but we have movie ideas for later ;)
Why not anime? Hey, we like us some anime too. We just don't love it they way we do good old fashion comics. And we dont own enough elmer's glue to really do the hair justice...
But, we never said any of this specifically because we were willing to be more fan driven. If you wanted to persuade us *cough*donateabucketofmoney*cough* we wanted to provide the best ideals of SUPER you could come up with. Any month picked on donation would go through consultation between the donator and the photographer for rendering a shot based on the character requested.
At H and M though, the ideas we have ready and waiting are all flying, fighting, super powered fantasy. We want to bring the POW and BOOM explosive action found in comics. We hope that's what your all looking for to. So when the project ends, if we hit our goal, we'll be asking all of you just what you want to see to. We bet a lot of your ideas will sound like ours. We also bet you have some gems of your own. If they coincide with other backers, we'll make it our mission to bring them to life.
For now, we're just settling in to the new digs. We're going to keep throwing our comic style ideas at the wall. After all, there is plenty of time to go....
We'll be in touch!
