About this project
Spellcaster is a Supernatural Drama set in modern day Pittsburgh PA. In it we will follow Mikhail Hunter, and his apprentice Sean Wolf as they work to protect the people of the region from demons, werewolves, and other mythical beings. All while keeping tabs on blood mages, and dodging political backlash from the Council of Magus in London. Along the way they meet Meagan, whose fascination with fantasy role-playing games leads to her fascination with our two magic users. The first season will consist of 10 to 12 Episodes, with a couple of behind the scenes videos thrown in.
Mikhail Hunter - Mikhail is a mid level Mage, called a Spellcaster, who despite being quite adept at all schools of magic, prefers the use of Illusion spells. Mikhail is reluctant to use any spells outside of Illusion and Self Defense spells, and adamantly refuses to use fire based spells. Even though he appears to be in his mid 20s, he is actually hundreds of years old, with only a few on the council knowing why. Despite his experience, and skill, that has come with his unnatural age, the Council of Magus refuses to allow him promotion to higher ranks, and Mikhail is surprisingly fine with this decision. He has a fascination with technology, and an admiration for normal people who accomplish great tasks without the aid of magic.
Sean Wolf - Sean Wolf was brought to the College of Magus at a very young age, and only saw his parents a few times since his acceptance. He was assigned to Mikhail as an apprentice three years ago, after getting in trouble, with his former teacher, for swindling people in games of chance. Much like his current teacher, Sean prefers Illusion magic. Unlike Mikhail, Sean won't think twice about using destruction based spells. He is often caught, by Mikhail, playing games of chance on the street and using his abilities to his advantage. Even though he loves magic, he hates his job of fighting supernatural creatures.
Meagan - Loves to play Fantasy Role Playing games. She regularly visits her neighborhood comic book store. She meets Mikhail and Sean one night and discovers their secret. She grows fascinated by their abilities, and begins following them around trying to learn how she can cast spells.
The Project So Far
I have a major Story Arc that lasts 3 season, with a few minor story arcs weaving through out. Currently the first season is under going a final edit. Our next step will be to begin assembling the props we need and to secure our locations. Following that we will begin casting, then fitting wardrobes and filming.

Why we are seeking funding.
Spellcaster is going to be a very prop heavy web-series. With proper funding we will be able to build very real, quality props and sets. Costumes also are going to play a large role in this series. We have several creatures that we may need to depict on screen. If we can properly show the creatures without breaking the suspense of reality, it will increase the enjoyment of those watching.
In addition to the props we need to buy some new sound equipment. The sound equipment we currently use is okay, but it still picks up a loud hiss that we would like to get rid of.
Finally we come to our actors and crew. Shooting can be long and stressful, So we want to provide our cast and crew with delicious edibles to snack on while they are on set.
Every little bit helps
We realize that giving money to a project can be difficult to do. You don't know if the project will be a success, or even if we will even raise enough money to accomplish our goal. The good thing about Kickstarter is that if we do not meet our goal, no one gets charged for their donation.
Everyone who donates will receive some sort of reward, or recognition. We are very grateful to everyone who can help us reach our goal, and accomplish our dream of producing a quality, popular web-series. Remember every dollar helps.
