JUNGA WORLD LLC, a multimedia startup, uses new media, rock music, and cutting edge animation to teach kids mindfulness, kindness, and a shared sense of humanity through entertainment.
The Kickstarter Goal: to raise the funds for a DIGITAL COMIC about six animated teenagers on a mission to discover their inner rock stars who learn mindfulness, kindness, and shared humanity along the way.
The Big Idea: to harness public support in creating cool, relatable characters who teach mindfulness, compassion, and acceptance through fun, interactive and engaging new-media (including web series, mobile games, music videos, and apps.)
SO, WHAT'S THE COMIC ABOUT?
The digital comic follows the exciting adventures of six teenagers who unite to form a rock band, “Junga World” and discover their inner rockstars.
All the characters face their own unique sets of challenges. Through the techniques of Self Kindness, Mindfulness, and Shared Humanity the characters develop Emotional Intelligence Tools to help them along their journey to stardom.
On their quest for identity, the characters discover their own JUNGAS, the passions and purposes that make their lives meaningful. Using their newly developed strengths and powers, they show the whole world who they really are……ROCKSTARS.
NOW MEET THE ROCKSTARS!
WHY SHOULD I SUPPORT JUNGA WORLD?
Between the 24/7 bombardment of sensationalist headlines and the domination of 'Reality' TV shows that hardly resemble most of our real lives, we believe that kids need an ORIGINAL and MODERN kind of storytelling- with authentic characters, personal stories and positive messages that are entertaining and interactive. We want to use entertainment to CHANGE KIDS' WORLDS, and we need you to do it with us!
AND WHAT HAPPENS IF WE BEAT OUR GOAL?
If we MEET our goal, we’ll be able to produce a super cool digital comic that chronicles the first part of our rockstar’s journey - but the best part is what happens if we exceed that goal. If we BEAT our goal, you can expect to see additional video clips, music videos, and if we really get lucky, a WEB SERIES telling the behind the scenes story of the adventures, experiences, and lessons that led the Junga World band members to come up with their original hit song “Power Within Me”.
