Anime in Bloom is a LIVE ACTION homage to anime

Promotional Teaser

Yes, the teaser is Sword Art Online, but that does not mean that's the anime we've chosen to do!

Anime, alive!

Anime In Bloom is a collection of short films created to pay homage to your favorite anime in live action. We are trying to create the first two stories in the collection, and you can get a feel for how they will look by watching the promo above.

Part cosplay, part fan fiction this is a passion project for filmmaker Jake Stark and his team. Cosplay photo-shoots are numerous and great in the community but films are definitely lacking. We really want to bring your favourite worlds and characters to life with each carrying their own unique story arc. How long these films are, and how much production goes into them is up to you and your generous pledges. We are setting the goal low so we can at least get one or two done for you. You can even pick the anime we do!

Where is the money going?

If you're familiar with cosplay you know that it takes a lot of effort and money into making the costumes look great, and with most characters needing intricate weapons or prosthetics to complete the character, it gets a little pricey. Our goal is to be as accurate as possible!

Another big one is SETS. Because what's Attack on Titan without the walls?

Cosplayers/actors travel and board expenses. While we do have people around us who are willing to give their time, we also are recruiting popular cosplayers to reprise the roles they are famous for in our films. Unfortunately, they live all across the country and we would have to fly them out to us.

Core Team

Jake Stark- Director, cinematographer, editor.

Veronica Smith- Cosplayer/Model/Actress/Anime know-it-all.

Farahn Gaiter- Producer.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Most film productions always fall prey to some sort of mishaps on and off the set and we are by no means exempt from such misfortune; but we strive to make our product as professional as possible so we can overcome such obstacles as delayed flights, corrupt files, costumes not being finished on time, and rejected film location permits.
If we meet our goal, we will finish the project by any means even if it means putting in more of our own money to make this happen. If such ill fate occurs we might be slightly over schedule and we have to delay the premiere. Quality takes time, so please be patient if such mishaps occur as we want to get these done right !
