We are Creature Entertainment, a Miami based multimedia entertainment company focused on comic book and film properties. Our comic books and films have been highlighted at Orlando Megacon, Miami Supercon, and New York Comic-Con. As an indie publisher, we have the following comic book titles under our umbrella: The Gun, Forgive Me Father, Tommy, The Zombie Years, Ravenous, TS-101 and UltraVixen. We have produced some noteworthy short films such as: Reservoir Bats, Killswitch Billy, Thanks Grandpa and TS-101. We have been laboring since 2008, with VERY shallow pockets, creating high quality books and films that try to push the boundaries. Our company is comprised of 8 creatives who span a generous range of talent. The Creature Entertainment fellowship is comprised of artists, webmasters, filmmakers, audio engineers, designers, photographers, writers, creative directors, editors and prop makers. Many of us have families and 9-5 jobs. We've taken some amazing strides with the little that we have. We've garnered some small badges of honor here and there along with plenty of battle scars. Despite a severe lack of resources, we have somehow managed to create an impressive body of work. The quality of our work and personal attention to our fans is helping us build a brand at comic conventions and film festivals. We see how the word is spreading exponentially. And because of this, Creature Entertainment's celebration of its fans forms part of our mission statement.
WHY DO WE NEED HELP?
DISTRIBUTION AND SAN DIEGO COMIC CON.
We have exhausted the wells of family and friends. Favors will only get you so far. We are busting at the seams with opportunity, and having capital will help break our financial bottleneck. Due to the quality of our work, we have already been selected for major nationwide distribution through Diamond Distributors (the "Major Leagues" of comic book distribution). This is a feather in our cap. But acquiring distribution means we need to commit to a steady and consistent output of content. Currently, we have five titles and only two artists. It's an impossible task, especially when they have jobs and family. We also need to hire artists, colorists and inkers to help us create new material and meet publication deadlines. On the film side, we have been humbled by the extremely talented and professional cast and crew members that have donated weeks of their time, unpaid, because they believe in what we're doing. But we find that we simply cannot keep asking for free help. We want to honor their loyalty and dedication by being able to pay them a fair and decent wage. We also need to order t-shirts, buttons, cards, specialty books, prints and posters, etc.
San Diego Comic Con is the piece that ties this all together. A strategic and strong showing here can be a game-changer. Your financial contributions will help us pay to finish our film "The Devil You May Know", along with the previously-mentioned expenses for the comic books. We intend to have these products ready to sell at SDCC and beyond.
We've done a lot of our work, scratching the walls, and shaking the couch for change to get where we are now. We've done A LOT with nothing,we would now like to work with something to increase production value and productivity.
