What is Blade of Honor?

Blade of Honor is an epic and bold science fiction series which brings together the talent and experience from successful productions such as BattleStar Galactica, Heroes, Star Trek: Voyager, Star Trek Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: New Voyages, Star Trek: Renegades, 5th Passenger, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N., Axanar, Star Trek - Horizon, Nobility, Star Trek: Continues, Cowboys & Engines, Star Trek: Hidden Frontier, and many more. 

Blade of Honor is a synthesis of the best parts of our favorite sci-fi productions and themes in a rich universe of intrigue and wonder whose landscape is wrought with war and the very survival of humanity.

THE CAST


 

 

 

 

 

The Story

Blade of Honor takes place in the year 2187 where the human Alliance is losing the war against the animal race, the Calinar. It is the story of Arina Kartades who is a religious, headstrong, crack Alliance Navy Star Blade pilot. When she discovers that her State mandated religious upbringing was a lie, she embarks on a forced quest to discover the true reasons behind the war with the Calinar, but when her discoveries place her in harm’s way against her religious beliefs, her military vows, her murderous rage episodes and her fiancée Terry Lindon who is her CAG aboard the Alliance Carrier Hermes, she fights a cloak and dagger war of secret rebellion in order to expose the galactic elite, route the heresy of the peoples’ religious masters and protect the ones she loves from the clutches of her own superiors and the combined military might of the Alliance and Calinar.

The Visual Effects Team

Blade of Honor has the incredible talents of Tobias Richter and The Light Works, Pony Horton, and Tommy Kraft (creator of Star Trek - Horizon). These three visionary VFX masters and their teams create the beautiful and provocative world of the Alliance and Calinar navies as well as the alien worlds our characters battle upon for their honor.

The Production Team

What sets Blade of Honor apart from most productions is the creative team of producers behind it.  Mark Edward Lewis, Steven Stone, Ryan T. Husk, Clayton Turnage and Jennifer Nash, combined, have over 120 years of experience producing and creating television, feature films, webisodic and short-form media in Hollywood. Blade of Honor brings all of their best skills and talents together into a team of professionals who can guide this series to widespread enjoyment.

The Plan

Blade of Honor has been drawing huge interest from major Hollywood executives and companies. It is our expectation and hope to get picked up by one of these companies and funded as an ongoing series. But first, we need to show them what this team can do with this initial mini-season. And that's where YOU come in. Your donations will fund the first episode(s) which will serve as a tangible demonstration of our vision. And we will use this demonstration to pitch our series to these companies. From there, our plan is to bring you many, many seasons of our epic science fiction space drama. 

The minimum we need to get started is $30,000. This will fund our first episode. But our real goal is to fund the entire first mini-season through this crowd funding campaign. So PLEASE, join the revolution, donate what you can, and help us SPREAD the word! Every time you share this campaign with someone, you bring us closer to our goal. 

We truly appreciate your support.

This Campaign

We've got big plans for Blade of Honor, but like with anything worth doing, we must start with the first step. That first step is episode one. The minimum we need to shoot episode one is $30,000 - that includes, building sets, creating wardrobes, renting stages, paying/feeding cast and crew, etc.., not post-production/visual effects. We are confident however, that with this small amount of money, we can make one hell of an impressive sci-fi web series episode. 

But it is our hope that we fund more than just this one episode of a webseries with this campaign. We need at least five episodes to tell this first story, this first mini-season. Because of that, we've got our sights set on some stretch goals as well. 

Donors should understand that about 30% of the money raised goes to fees related to the Kickstarter: 10% goes to Kickstarter/Amazon processing fees, 10% goes to perk fulfillment (those amazing benefits you get for donating to Blade of Honor) and there is a 10% dropout rate (which we hope is less). In the end, about 70% of what is raised goes to the production.

The budget for each episode of Blade of Honor is roughly $25,000. As we reach additional stretch goals, we will be able to produce more and more episodes. Naturally, the more episodes we can fund, the cheaper each episode becomes, because the money spent to, say, build a set or create wardrobe only needs to be spent once in a shoot. The money saved can go to creating even more professional production values.

What does bringing the cost down allow? It means that we can add more actors, more sets, and more intricate storytelling techniques to have you even more hooked on the series than you already will be. Of course, we could produce the series one episode…and one Kickstarter at-a-time, but wouldn’t you rather binge watch your favorite sci-fi series rather than wait 6 months for the next gripping episode?

We are not asking for donations from you without having first spent our own money on the project. The producers believe in Blade of Honor enough to have spent over $20,000 of their own cash on infrastructure, legal, marketing, promotions (the proof-of-concept video being such), artwork and more. We believe in this wholeheartedly, and we’re 100% committed to seeing this through.

To sum up, we take our responsibility to you extremely seriously, and we believe Blade of Honor will bring you value and exceed your expectations of a crowd-funded production. We greatly appreciate your donations, shout outs, sharing, excitement, and partnership. Thank you for “Joining The Revolution.”

Risks and challenges

There are always risks and challenges when making a film. These include unforeseen delays, actor cancellations and rescheduling, weather, location availability, equipment issues etc. However, we have a professional and experienced crew who have faced these challenges before. While we can never predict what the future holds, we are a uniquely skilled team to tackle whatever comes our way whether it’s a network television deal, a webisodic 30-minute-episodic deal and the like. It is our intent to build and hone the skills of this team so that the other (top secret) series we will be bringing to you can be done even more efficiently and with even greater value to our donors.
