About this project

At world renown boarding school Crimson Academy, Students are given the chance to re-write their lives, starting over on campus. Will their decisions better them or go awry? what are the costs? Follow each cast of students on their journey to finding themselves in the world heavily induced by evil, betrayal, manipulation, and the reality that must be faced.

 In just a short time, we’ve been able to employ some of the best talent in the country, and your response has been phenomenal! Now you can help take Aetas Studios to the next level.  We’d like to launch our first season of material to include 25 brand new episodes!   

It’s not easy maintaining this level of professionalism on a shoe string budget.  We need funding to continue to pay great voice actors, the production team, and to help maintain state of the art equipment.  We want to offer fans an opportunity to be part of something huge…     

                  SECRET's first installment is SECRET: MONOLITH    

                  Our projected premiere date is in OCTOBER 2015

Aetas studios plans premiere the 1st episode through YouTube, each to be 20 minute to 30 minute durations, at at least 25 episodes per season. 

For over a year production has grown; we've been able to reveal trailers, art work, changing factors that has made this dream even more possible. Our talented team of artists have poured their hearts into making the vision of "SECRET" coming alive, as well as our composer, reeling you into our world with their fantastic arrangement.

 These characters went through many changes, and various stages of development until we all felt comfortable enough to call them final designs. we have story boards projecting all possible ideas and direction for the story, as well as multiple notes and documents about every character made, thought up, or used. 

 SECRETS OST is composed by our talented Syncopika (Nick H.) 

Nick has provided for multiple commercial/non commercial projects. His tracks move and captivate the audience! Here are few tracks created for SECRET: 

SECRET - MOURN

 SECRET - THE LIGHT

 SECRET - HIGH ENERGY

 Although we have all invested a majority of our free time and money into this production, we won't be able to compensate the art department, our actors, or anyone else because our budgets are very thin due to bills, not enough income, college. We're reaching our hands out to you, please support our production and make this dream finally come true!

Our set goal is $4,000  and our stretch goals are $5,500 , $7,500 , $10,000

Risks and challenges

We will try to deliver the products and show by October 2015, but due to work, college, etc, our free time is very little, and it might cut into our release dates and shipments by a few months at worst. We hope you understand our complications. We're hoping it doesnt come down to this!

Love you all!
