Hello my name is Eric Ramos I’m a New York based Independent filmmaker, and comic book enthusiast. American Terror is a short Film ,based on the graphic novel series “ American Terror confession of a human smart bomb Vol 1.” created, and drawn by Jeff MCcomsey, and Published by Alterna Comics.
“Victor Sheppard is an old man in a new world. He remembers a time prior to the War of the Third World, when cops still carried guns and there was a ghetto in every city. All that's history now. Now the third world no longer exists. A new age of peace and equality has begun, but it didn't come cheap. Millions of people died and the world is a better place, but nobody remembers why. Haunted by his dead comrades, Victor decides to do the one thing he thought he'd never do: Spill his guts.”
The short follows closely Vol.1 of the series as we are introduced to the protagonist Victor Sheppard in the future close to the end of his life. We get a glimpse into his mind as we learn he is haunted by his past, figuratively, and in his mind quite literally. We meet Victor at his beginning, where we learn how it all started, and how he became the father of a revolution. We have been working on this film for the past few years, slowly putting money into it. And right now were, well pretty much broke.
That’s the reason we’ve come to Kickstarter. We have finished the film and are in need of finishing funds, for things like color correction, sound design, an animated intro, and a cool score. By donating funds to our project you will give us the ability us to finish the film at a quality everyone involved could be proud of.
In return for contributing to our Kickstarter here’s the rewards we can offer.
Included on the DVD will be The animated short "American Terror: Company Man", directed by Joseph W. Krzemienski of the animation studio, http://thefictory.com/ ( Don't forget to check out his upcoming short based on the comic book series "Atomic Robo", from writer Brian Clevinger, and artist Scott Wegener.) Also included will be original storyboards, and more.
* DVD delivery will be scheduled at a later date as the movie will need to be completed first.
Our sincerest thanks, to everyone in advance.
Risks and challenges
Once our project is successfully funded the post production process will go into high gear. The biggest obstacle we face is completing everything to the level that we need to make it a high quality film through and through.
We have found and secured the personnel in order to do the post work that is needed for the film. We go forward with positivity that all the work will be completed in a timely manner.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
