Have you ever enjoyed a comic book but wished it was more like a film with high quality voice acting, music, sound effects, and movement to bring the pages to life?

Help is on the way!

 

It’s a motion-comic series that you can watch online. It combines animation, audio stories, and graphic novels into one form of entertainment. Regular episodes will be uploaded for each featuring a great cast. This kickstarter will cover the expenses for the first episode of Anti-Hero called Origin Story. Sixty panels of artwork, a medley of actors, and an original score make a thrilling half-hour of entertainment. And that’s just Episode One. If Anti-Hero is a success we have many more stories we want to tell and many more talented voice actors and artists we’d love to showcase in this format.

The voice cast for the first episode includes veteran actors with experience in theater, films, video games, and television…

STEPHAN WEYTE:
(From video games like Blood and Metroid Other M as well as numerous other roles)

MARK FRAZER:
(From Samurai Cop 1 and 2 and Lois & Clark among others)

DENNIS BATEMAN:
(From Team Fortress 2, Men of Honor and Expiration Date)

JACK SNEED:
(From Grimm, Automata and Cabin Fever)

MIKE POLLOCK:
(From Sonic the Hedgehog, Yu-Gi-Oh, and Pokémon)

HOPE SHANTHI:
(From 21 & Over and Wallflower)

 JOE MICHEALS:
(From Portal 2 and The Lab)

LARRY ALBERT:
(From Darkdrive and Born to Be Wild)

BARBARA 'BABS' LINDSAY:
(From Prick and The Furry)

 NICK ELDREDGE:
(From Suburban Commando and The Neighbors)

And many others!

Anti-Hero is set in a world like our own except that super heroes are a fact of life. When a criminal madman destroys a city the heroes band together to rebuild it in their own image. Now they will become the leaders they were always meant to be and take charge, forming a governing body called The SuperVision. But not all ordinary humans are thrilled with being lorded over by superior beings. Some have begun fighting back against the regime. They are called Anti-Heroes.
 Between these two warring forces falls an ordinary guy who just wants to do the right thing. His name is Stanley Ditko.
This is his origin story.

This campaign will support the first episode which will be released online for free for everyone to see. Backers will have an opportunity to get exclusive rewards and opportunities. Anti-Hero Episode One: Origin Story is the beginning of the Anti-Hero series which has been planned out and just needs the resources to piece together. Ideally with the release of Anti-Hero Episode 1 we can gather more interest in not only the project but also the use of top grade actors and independent animation to tell stories outside of the mainstream. We need our stories back. The whole team want to realize that by bringing back a focus on characters and comprehensive plots over expensive and convoluted digital effects. Anti-Hero may pay fond homage to super hero stories of the past but it is an original story without ties to an existing franchise. We don’t need to be a reboot, a sequel or a prequel to tell a tale we believe has universal themes and something for everyone.

Risks and challenges

We're dealing with an extensive cast of veteran actors so it's not unlikely there may be a few conflicts. Actors need to work and their lives are as chaotic as anyone else's and many are in demand, but that's why it's refreshing not to be doing a live action production so we can focus on the people over unforeseen issues with the production.
Animation takes some time but thanks to technology it's much faster to put together panels and to fine tune.
There may be some technical issues uploading and some delays in transfers of autographs, artwork, and physical rewards but rest assured we've taken these risks into consideration.
