FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO MISSED THE KICKSTARTER:

This film, along with Arrowstorm's other productions, are available for purchase from the store on the ARROWSTORM ENTERTAINMENT WEBSITE.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As you know, we at Arrowstorm Entertainment are crazy about medieval fantasy... coincidentally, we're also huge fans of Christmas. So we finally decided to put the two together in an epic, feature-length adventure, the likes of which has never been seen on screen before. 

We're confident The Christmas Dragon will become a holiday favorite you return to year after year - a sword and sorcery Christmas adventure for the whole family. (If Willow got together with Rise of the Guardians and had a child, this would be it.)

And... we guarantee delivery in time for the 2014 holidays. It's the perfect gift for the fantasy fans in your life!

Medieval Europe - Father Christmas is a fading memory, after Christmas hasn't come for several years.

A young orphan girl, Ayden, receives a magic crystal from a dying elf, with a warning that the North has lost its magic, and that she alone can save Christmas. Ayden and her orphan friends begin a perilous journey, and must escape dragons, goblins, bandits, ogres and other fantasy creatures as they team up with Airk, the wayward son of Father Christmas, to return a stolen Christmas orb to the North. When Santa's magic cannot overpower the growing Snarl (an evil forest with tentacle branches), Ayden and Airk must deliver Christmas on a sleigh pulled by a young dragon, fulfilling Christmas wishes for children to restore Santa's magic and save Christmas.

BAILEE JOHNSON - Ayden

Though young, Bailee is a fantastic actress and has starred is several films, including 127 Hours, Christmas Oranges, 17 Miracles, and you may also recognize her from a brief appearance in Osombie.

JAKE STORMOEN - Airk

Since being cast in Mythica, the always charming Jake has worked non-stop and has starred in several upcoming films, including Cyborg X and Kiss the Devil in the Dark.

MELANIE STONE - Saerwen

After featuring in Survivor and Christmas for a Dollar, Melanie seized the opportunity to play Marek, the lead in Mythica. She's a newcomer, but is destined for stardom... you read it here first!

RUBY JONES, PARIS WARNER, DAVID DE VILLIERS, JACOB BUSTER

These kids will steal the show for you. They're fun, charismatic, and talented, and did a great job bringing love and life to the film.

ADAM JOHNSON - Father Christmas/Bandit Leader

Adam is an Arrowstorm favorite, but is well-known for his myriad roles in a host of projects, including The Veronica Mars film, Dexter, Vamp U, Dragon Warriors, Mythica, Charly, and many, many more.

EVE MAURO - Aesa

Eve is a world-renowned model, but Arrowstorm fans will remember her best from Osombie and The Shadow Cabal. She has featured in a bunch of films, including the upcoming Cyborg X.

So, as per our usual pattern, the film is already shot, and we are well underway with post-production. Sound, music and visual effects are all working frantically to reach our deadline so that Christmas Dragon can be released in time for the holidays THIS YEAR. But a shorter schedule means our post-production elves have to devote substantial time, and more time means more money... So we need your help to ensure this project happens swiftly.

Backers pledge an amount and choose a reward. At the end of our 30-day Kickstarter campaign, if the combined total of all pledges for our project meets our $50,000 goal, then the credit cards of those who pledge are charged and we receive the funds to finish our film. If we don't meet our goal, then the money is not withdrawn from your account and no rewards are provided :(. If we exceed our $50,000 goal then the extra funds will be used to make the movie even better - so keep pledging! All funds raised are used directly in the finishing of this film.

We're not looking for charity, we're looking for an early sales venue - that's why our rewards reflect fair market value. Don't think of it as a donation, think of it as a pre-purchase. If you want to see this film, buy it now through Kickstarter - you'll probably get a better deal from us than from whatever retailer ends up selling it in your country, and you'll help make our film better!

We're a small group of independent filmmakers who love making movies, and have been at it for about a decade. It's our full-time job, and every film we have made has received worldwide distribution. We do pretty much everything ourselves, from conception to financing to production to securing distribution. We love fantasy and science fiction and know there's others out there like us, who we aim to please. Click on a name to see our IMDB profiles:

Risks and challenges

Film is a complicated technical exercise, and often unforeseen difficulties arise, causing budget and scheduling overruns - particularly when complex visual effects are involved. That being said, we are an experienced group and have successfully completed and released every film we have started. We have produced several visual effects heavy projects in the past, and see no reason why we shouldn't continue to accomplish our goals.

On the plus side, this film is largely complete. A great deal of the risk in the project has already been mitigated, and we are too far along to turn back and give up. We are seeking funding to complete a visual effects sequence, and have the personnel to pull it off, regardless of complications.
