I am Alex Fernandez, Creator/Director of DAWN and BODY JUMPERS and now, with your help Aurora, Chronicles of A Hero.
Look what I've done, on my own, from Brooklyn, with literally no budget. We've won many awards, including these just last night from the HBO Urban Showcase:
Imagine what I could do with a little help from you! You can be part of my dream, the dream of so many creators around the world.....to take my talent and ideas to Hollywood, bring a fresh voice, something new and authentic and most of all, something that YOU will love to watch. You will be able to watch Aurora - Chronicles of A Hero and know that you played an essential part in getting some diversity in Hollywood and creating a new empowered female character that will stretch your ideas of what being a superhero is all about.
Synopsis: Laurie Walker is a 22 year old C.E.O. of her family owned multi-national Los Angeles based corporation. She appears in her daily work life to be your standard successful female business leader but, in fact she is hiding a deep secret – Laure was born different, very different – she has special powers. As a child they were alien to her and frightened her. She ignored them. But, as she grew so did her powers until she was forced to confront them and eventually gain mastery and control. Now she finds herself poised to defend her birthplace known to all as the City of Angeles. Los Angeles has become the stage for evil do-ers, committing horrific crime and creating chaos – these criminals are hell bent on destroying her city. Against Laurie are gangs of criminals with their own inherent super powers being used to harm the citizens of LA to gain power and prestige. Laurie Walker has but one choice to become a crusader for California…AURORA of the Angels. Soon, we learn Laurie will do battle with another powerful woman. A woman scorned by the city where she came to find her dreams. Carol Dupont is a 40 something ex-starlet, conned at a young age by a producer named Jake Silver who promised Carol he would make her famous if she would accept his offer. 20 years later she is living on borrowed time in the under belly of Tinseltown, as a cheap B movie horror star, doing roles she took to keep from starving. Jake, a washed-up drunk had sold her hopes to the highest bidder years ago. Another victim of the machine. But, Carol, with her own superpowered alter-ego Doll Face, has a plan built on revenge and she will take her dignity back by destroying the very place that lied to her, cheated her and stole it from her so many years ago. She will get her revenge and doesn't care if she takes the city down with her. It is only Aurora that stands in her way.Two women, two dreams, two secrets, one epic battle set in Los Angeles, against the back drop of smoky sunsets where angels and devils mingle to decide fates and fortunes.
The main villain of the series, Carol Dupont, aka Doll Face, will be played by the talented Angelica Bridges. Angelica is a multi-talented actress and model. She has appeared on everything from Baywatch to the Conan TV series (as Red Sonja).

Risks and challenges
I've been doing this for a long time with no budget and have created quality projects before that you can see online, you can see the awards we've won and the audience that we have built - this mitigates the risk of a project like this.
If I do good projects with no money, you can reasonably expect a SPECTACULAR project result with a little financial help.
In addition to a basic budget, this project will benefit from the more advanced film ecosystem of Los Angeles. I've been doing everything from Brooklyn (the greatest city in the world with all due respect). But Los Angeles is the film capital of the world and together we'll take my fresh voice into the best film-making talent hotbed.
That said, any project has risk. I'm particularly attuned to the kind of risk on Kickstarter. This community expects delivery of their premiums and I have a good logistics/product team in place with tons of experience.
Most of all this community expects promises to be kept and I understand that my own reputation is on the line and that I will not risk - I will deliver on-time and on-budget you have my Word!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
