About this project
Say Hello to MAX ADVENTURE!!!!
"Max Adventure has had a bad day. He's become lost in space, sucked into a black hole, and crash landed on a strange planet. Only two people know where he is: His lively sidekick Tug-Butt, and his feisty friend Phem. Together, they help their new friends, the Nemisians, fight against the evil Seth Cordall and the Goranian Army. Along they way they learn valuable life lessons while meeting strange and wonderful new people. And hope that one day, they can find a way home."
Our desire is to introduce fantasy based, family friendly entertainment in the form of animated programming to help educate parents and children in coping with behavioral and emotional situations. This type of entertainment was popular in the 1980s with shows such as He-Man, Fat Albert, G.I Joe, and Thundercats. In doing so, we will be providing a community service and offering employee welfare and compensation to owners and investors.
In this concept piece, we see the Original Max Adventure, Tug-Butt, and Phem. In silhouette to the right is Seth Cordall, and upper left is Armok.
Ready For Blastoff!
We are in the start-up phase of production, but we have a long road to go. The funds that we are asking for will help us get production going quicker and easier and set us up with our distribution aggregator. This is where YOU come in!!!
Meet the Cast!!!!
Eric Randall (Max, General Conn, Armok) has an impressive background in broadcasting and theater with over 30 years experience as an on camera talent, voice over and film and stage actor. Aside from providing several voices for Westwood Studios video games, including appearing as Greg Burdette in their ground breaking "Command and Conquer" series, he has also appeared in various motion pictures and TV shows such as "Casino," "Pure Country," "High Roller" and "The Watcher." Eric acted as a Star Fleet officer in the highly successful Las Vegas live production "Star Trek: The Experience" and was the top rated weather man in Las Vegas, NV for over a decade. Eric has also been extremely active in the convention/public speaking arena providing live VO, emcee and narration talent for some of the top companies in the world.
Gina Burgo (Phem, Various Female Voices) is huge talent wrapped in a little body. Having trained all her life in theater, dance, voice and film, Gina has worked the gamut. From acting as a spokesperson at a variety of Las Vegas conventions, such as the world famous C.E.S show, to performing live on stage in a myriad of musical productions, Gina has traveled the U.S.A in various live productions displaying her talents. She has also worked with Eric Randall in the past at the famed Star Trek: The Experience in Las Vegas, NV.
Phillip Fitzlaff (Tug-Butt, Seth Cordall, Various Male Voices) officially started his acting career in a 6th grade Christmas Production. After that he has stayed extremely active within the industry. Having starred in local productions such as The Haunting of Hathaway House and Sir Gawain and the Green Knight Phillip is definitely no stranger to film and animation. At the age of 5 he was creating flip books and would soon own a light table for traditional cell animation. As the years went on he would create a variety of short films and a handful of features, his last being The Oracle. Becoming inspired by Robert Zemeckis' Beowulf, Phillip found a new way to make the projects he wants to make, without breaking the bank.
Risks and challenges
While it's true we can make educational entertainment far less expensive than the major studios, we all know that it will still take more than our request to see this, and future projects, long term. These funds are purely being used as initial seed money to get the ball rolling and to secure our distribution.
While we are confident in our ability to make quality family friendly entertainment, there are a few items that will still act as a barrier as we start off:
1. All who are involved in these projects are doing so of their own free time with no pay. We are not yet in a position to do this full time, as we still need our 9 to 5 jobs to pay bills; therefore, production may be slower than we would like until profits from distribution start to trickle in.
2. Possible slow distribution due to the issue listed above. In our ideal situation, we would be able to create one episode each week and have a full season created within four months and ready to sell as a box set. Since we are not in an ideal situation, we will not be able to hit all distribution avenues at one time. Instead, we will sell individual episodes on DVD on Demand, iTunes, and Amazon first. Once we have created a full 14 episode season, we can then sell the box sets via retail outlets, online, Hulu, Netflix, Cable, e.t.c
We expect these hurdles only during our first year of production, After the 4th quarter returns have come in, we will be able to get on a regular schedule according to our business plan.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
