About

SENSHI GALAXY SUPERNOVA

For fans by fans, in which we celebrate the 20th anniversary of Sailor Moon by combining our beloved Sailor Senshi with the Girls Generation song ‘Galaxy Supernova.’

ABOUT THIS PROJECT

 “I really wanted to write a story with a sexy girl, a good-looking guy, some romance, video games, and cute school uniforms! Of course Bunny [Usagi/Serena] is strong, too... we've got to be strong for our boys! Right, girls?” - Naoko Takeuchi, creator of Sailor Moon

In 1992, Naoko Takeuchi changed the lives of girls and boys everywhere with the premier of her manga, Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon. As children of the 90's, these characters and magnificent stories are something we revisit and celebrate to this day. We want to memorialize them in a new way by putting them in a unique magical world. We want to welcome you to help us create Senshi Galaxy Supernova.

Inspired by our love for Sailor Moon and Girls Generation, this video is being made by fans, for fans. It will portray the characters of Sailor Moon in a futuristic setting. Picture magical girl meets Tron  and you’ll have the futuristic inspired setting and fashions of the scouts. 

Our video will include an original story of Usagi's adventure in this futuristic setting, along with the scouts, while incorporating the cute and stylish iconic dance moves of Girls Generation from their Galaxy Supernova video.

Every penny of your donations will be spent on: 

  • Production team ~ $1050.00
  • Travel costs ~ $150.00
  • Locations - $1200.00
  • Equipment - $740.00
  • Kickstarter rewards 

CAST

We are the sailor scouts! A group of nerdy friends who all truly love Sailor Moon. Our members are a dedicated group of cosplayers who will be devoting a considerable amount of hours for perfecting our dance moves over the course of several months.

COSPLAY

The cast will be assembling unique outfits based on their character in the futuristic theme. They will be providing their outfits from their own budgets and will not be taken from the donations received from the Kickstarter. Each original piece of art is done by Saphyre Daze Cosplay & Costuming and the design by the respective cosplayer. When we reach one thousand dollars we will be releasing all of the official finished artwork.

PRODUCTION TEAM

Videography and Photography by FDSedanoArts

FDSedanoArts is a videographer of over 29 Cosplay Music Videos that feature a wide variety of cosplays in a way that highlights the artistry and creativity of both the costume and the cosplayer. Getting his start in videography from a love of making video game montages, he first honed his skills in photography throughout various conventions, where he was able to use his eye for the best way to present cosplay on film. 

He was then inspired by Sneaky Zebra's Cosplay Music Videos to try to put his twist on the concept of cosplay videography. Since then, his work has been featured on the Idea Channel on YouTube and in a docmentary on Discovery channel. Growing up watching Sailor Moon, he is excited to be working on a project that will combine a beloved childhood show with his cosplay videography art. Connect with him on Facebook & YouTube.

Cost for Production Crew:

To do this project, FDSedanoArts will be bringing his team. This consists of himself, a behind the scenes camera man, a photographer and an assistant. The money donated will go towards paying for rights of the photos taken by his team that will be used for the Kickstarter, rights for the finished video and camera specific equipment to be able to film at night, hotels for himself and his team and transportation expenses. Total cost for this is $1,000.

Graphic Designer will be Ashley Kayley 

Ashley Kayley is an Orlando artist, photographer, writer, and editor. She is the owner of her design business, and does freelance work for a number of high profile clients. Ashley is also a cosplayer who focuses on technical fabrication and special effects makeup. She can be seen at many southeastern conventions. Find her on Tumblr, Facebook, & DeviantArt.

Ashley Kayley will be paid $50.00 for her services.

LOCATIONS 

We will be shooting at Studio One in Orlando, FL. Their space has multiple areas that we will be utilizing to give a unique futuristic feel. We'll also be shooting in locations around Orlando, FL outside that have the right architecture for our theme.

 Total cost for renting out location space & fees is $1200.00.

TRAVEL COST

We have a big team and a big dream! Unfortunately, not all of our cast and production team live in the same location. The budget for travel costs will provide the ability for everyone to get to our shooting location.

We have a large team of 10 performers traveling to a specific location for filming. We will be providing each carpooling team a one time gas credit to get to the location. The total expense for this is $150.00.

EQUIPMENT

For the futuristic feel we need to achieve for this video, we need to be able to shoot at night. To do this, specialized equipment that can capture the images in a low light setting will need to be acquired. 

Cost Breakdown

  • Lights/Stands - $350.00
  • Gels - $30.00
  • Backdrops - $60.00
  • Set Pieces - $300.00

**Please know that the budget we've set above is the bare minimum to produce the music video. The more funding we recieve will allow us the ability to obtain a higher quality production for an out of this world cosplay music video. 

All the scouts and our production team appreciate all and any donations, but we understand if you are unable to donate. Spreading word throughout the cosplay and Sailor Moon community is just as important! Please share this on every social media you can.

Risks and challenges

We've spent months coming together, building our team, fighting evil by moonlight, researching and winning love by daylight. With all this work we're ready to go; storyboards drawn up, cosplays planned and in production, & practices underway. Our production team is ready to go and now the only true challenge is nailing all the moves and, of course, funding. Help us create Usagi's journey into a new magical world where the Sailor Scouts will dance in the moonlight on their way to new discoveries.
