About this project
KIN FABLES is, first and foremost, a trilogy of short films. They are titled: KIN (completed), SALVAGE & REQUIEM. 3 fables contributing to one grand vision, one grand story.
We like to think of them as visual poems, a unique marriage of music and images, pushing the boundaries of conventional storytelling.
If you haven't seen KIN yet, we invite you to watch it here.
It is also a multi-media project, consisting of:
- a graphic novel
- an full length music album
- paintings and illustrations
This is a project born from sheer passion, from the simple and powerful desire to create something new. A film project we hope resonates with a worldwide audience. A cinematic experience we hope stays with you long after you watch it.
We have a clear vision of where we want to bring these films, but we need support to do so.
HELP US FINISH THE STORY
We made KIN with our own personal funds, and are very glad we did! But we soon realized that we simply don't have the means to pull that off again for the two remaining films. We've already saved up more money to film the rest, but we need extra help to get us there!
We are dreaming bigger for the next fables, our story compelling us to new and more breathtaking locations, such as the shores of Newfoundland. Which means a bigger budget than KIN. Here's a an estimate of where the Kickstarter funds will be placed:
WHAT TO EXPECT IN SALVAGE AND REQUIEM.
After KIN, we have big expectations to meet. We are aiming higher for the next films, which delve deeper into the concept of KIN Fables. The clue is in the title: these other "fables" will be totally unique on their own, yet very much relating, to the central vision. The characters you love from KIN will return, but in different ways, shapeshifting into different times and lands…
We prefer not revealing too much at this point! All we can say is that by watching the films back to back, the effect will be that of a fantastic modern fairytale.
Expected Release Dates:
Salvage August 2014
Requiem November 2014

Risks and challenges
As you know, making a film is never easy, especially when the vision is so clear! Achieving the image we see in our minds and feel in our hearts is a tremendous task, a challenge we are more than willing to meet.
The biggest risk is that the films take longer than expected to complete in post-production. Proper sound design, colour correction and especially VFX are key to the vision. We really don't want to make things look fake or corny, something we see to often nowadays, even in big-budget Hollywood films.
To meet this challenge, and deliver the films on time, we have a carefully hand-piked team of talented artists who share the same vision and tastes as us. Professionals with years of experience in the film business, as excited as we are to bring KIN Fables to life.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
