A feature length animated action film created by one man.
With movie budgets today soaring into the 100 and 200 million dollar range, my goal is to serrate those budgets and prove there is another market for independent animated action films. I want to pioneer a new wave of animated films created with extreme micro budgets. How is this possible? Here is a list of all the tasks I took on to create this animated epic.
Story, animated storyboards, look/mood development, motion capture, character modelling, texturing/surfacing, rigging, facial animation, scene integration, editing, post-production effects, sound design, etc.
Your pledge will help make this happen! I'm hoping this project will become a landmark in film history, and forever change how animated films are made! You're pledge will go toward all expenses to complete post production and secure all music licenses for the finished films' score!

Warriors of Kitri is the story of Motega, an indigenous being of the planet known as Kitri. We follow him through his journey to survive with his mate Leyati and their only son Hamik as the planet as they know it is dying and all oases are vanishing. Akecheta, who was once a friend of Motega's, is a degenerate kitrian who harvests crystals from beneath the surface of the planet. He eventually turned on Motega to indulge in the crystals' power that gives him a mighty strength. He used that power to destroy kitrians that would drink from a nearby oasis. As water is slowly depleted, every kitrian must pick up a blade and become a warrior and fight those who threaten their survival...
I want the film to have a different look from traditional animated films in existence. I grew up with movies from the early 80's and 90's and I loved the now vintage look that happened as a result of the primitive camera technology (film grain, dust, scratches etc), before everything went to digital and became super pristine. I want to see animated action films that are super rugged and gritty and not perfect and crisp.
A previous film that I was involved with as Animation Director was Atlantis: The Last Days of Kaptara.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The risks involved that I must overcome are simple. Anytime someone makes an effort to accomplish something that has never been done before, runs the risk of the art form not being received well or harsh criticism. All the tasks that are involved in this project require a very high level of quality and discipline. Working as a team has great benefits and drawbacks. 100% of the workload is on me. At the same time I have 100% creative freedom to do whatever I choose, most artists or directors might not have that. The challenge to overcome is using the current technology to create a high resolution animated action film by one artist.
