Super Science Friends is an animated series about a team of super-powered scientists who travel through time fighting nazis, renegade soviet cosmonauts and their own scientific rivals!
The First Episode
In 2014 we successfully Kickstarted the pilot episode of Super Science Friends. "Episode 1: The Phantom Premise" was released this past October!
If you haven't seen it yet, check out the full episode here:
Since its launch, Episode 1 has been named a Vimeo Staff Pick, shared over 12,000 times on Facebook and viewed over 600,000 times between Facebook, Vimeo and YouTube!
Now we're asking you to help us continue the adventures of Tesla, Freud, Marie Curie, Darwin, Tapputi and Einstein! We've got great new rewards, as well as updated versions of your favourites from the first Kickstarter.
The number one question we're being asked right now is "When will episode 2 be released?". With your help, we'll be able to answer that question with a resounding "Soonish!"
And to avoid having another long delay between episodes, we're hoping to fund at least the next three episodes. Hopefully even more!
What Will the Next Episodes Be About?
Great question! Since October, we've been busy writing the next episodes. We want them to focus on each member of the team, and their rivals. Here's a snapshot of what we have in mind:
Episode 2: Electric Boogaloo (Tesla vs. Edison)
Episode 3: Freudian Sleep (Freud vs. Jung)
Episode 4: Nobel of the Ball (Marie Curie vs. Nobel Prize Stealing Nazis!)
The rewards from the first Kickstarter went over really well, and because of that we've kept your old favourites as well as added some exciting new ones!
Risks and challenges
Having gone through the first Kickstarter, and produced the pilot episode, as well as all the rewards, we now have a firm understanding of what it takes to produce a show like Super Science Friends.
A big challenge of doing the first episode was producing all the initial assets for the show, such as character and background designs as well as defining the look and feel of the animation. On top of that, we also started to get a sense of what the personalities of the different characters are, and how they interact with one another.
We now want to build on that to create an even better finished product for our viewers.
The biggest challenge will be to scale up production from working on one episode to working on at least three at once. Luckily our animators are now seasoned veterans when it comes to Super Science Friends, and we'll be able to hit the ground running!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
