Red Hood: The FAN Series Season 2

$16,167

281

Red Hood: The Fan Series is a non-profit, 4 part mini-series that follows the adventures of Batman's former sidekick, Jason Todd, the second Robin, now The Red Hood. 

Season 1 of our series finds The Red Hood dealing with the criminal fallout after Batman has mysteriously disappeared, resulting in Gotham City falling into chaos. 

Along with his adoptive brothers, Tim Drake (The Red Robin), and Damian Wayne (Son of Bruce Wayne and current Robin), The Red Hood will have to (begrudgingly) form an uneasy alliance to take back Gotham from one of their most diabolical foes, The Court of Owls!

WATCH SEASON 1 HERE!

Red Hood: Season 2 sees our hero battling his way through alternate dimensions after being shot into the multiverse by an Evil Red Hood! Damian is captured, Tim is injured, and it seems like hope is lost, unless Jason can make it back in time to save the day (and maybe get some taco bell along the way)!

SEASON 2 is going to be a HUGE undertaking, seeking to take the series to the next level. Though we enjoyed making Season 1, we definitely believe that the flaws can be broken down and fixed by pushing the boundaries of Production Gear (cameras, etc.), Acting talent, Locations, and even some awesome guest stars! 

 The series will primarily focus on building Jason Todd, Tim Drake, and Damian Wayne, giving us a deeper, more intimate look at their characters and creating a story with rich mythology and steeped heavily in Batman lore. We hope that this both excites and entices new and existing fans to enjoy this series as one of the best that YouTube has to offer!

Officially started in 2017, CD828 Studios has been producing indie films and web shorts for film festivals across the world as well as skits and shorts for YouTube. Ian Lang, the Studios' Director, has been working in film for the past 15 years. 

With their 2017 Feature Film "OK" winning numerous awards and receiving good reception at Film Festivals across the US, the guys wanted to branch out and take to the world of Web Series. 

What better way to do that than with characters and stories that you've loved from years of comics!?

In February of 2018, We hatched the idea to begin production on Red Hood: The FAN Series, and, frankly, have been totally shocked by the reception! 

We have been getting messages everyday from people around the world that are watching and enjoying our characters and can't wait to see what happens next! With almost half a million views and creeping up on 10K Subscribers, in less than a year, WITHOUT A VIRAL VIDEO, we are so humbled and blessed by every single person that enjoys and shares our content. 

We're all HUGE fans of Batman and the Robins, and it is a dream come true to be able to produce a show like this!

Having said all of that, we definitely see several areas where we can improve. We self-funded Season 1 with a VERY small budget and had several struggles when it came to consistent release schedules, fight scene choreography, equipment/camera quality, and a few other minor issues. That's why we need YOU!

*CONCEPT BASED ON EXISTING PRODUCT, NOT FINAL DESIGN, NOT ENDORSED BY NECA

PLUS POSTERS, PRINTS, COMICS, HELMETS, EYEMASKS, AND SO MUCH MORE!

As with all Film and Series productions, we have a baseline that we need in order to produce the Season, however, if we raise additional funds, we will make the series EVEN BETTER and give back to YOU in the process!

  •  $20,000 - Not only will we have our full production budget, but we will be able to fully fund our marketing budget, ensuring our visits to multiple Comic Cons throughout the year so that we can HANG OUT WITH YOU! Additionally, IF WE REACH THIS GOAL AND ABOVE, WE WILL RELEASE THE SEASON WEEKLY/BI-WEEKLY BETWEEN APRIL 2019 AND MAY 2019! That's right! With this goal and above, we will be able to work on the series FULL-TIME, allowing us to release the full Season on YouTube with a similar release schedule to Network Television!

  •  $25,000 - This additional funding will not only continue to enhance our equipment goals and marketing/Comic Con budget, but if we raise this amount, we will send each of our contributors an additional personalized Thank -You message from the cast! 

  •  $35,000 - This stretch goal takes our production to an even higher level, allowing us to shoot on Cinema-Grade Equipment and enhancing our Production Schedule (Weekly/Bi-Weekly Episodes!), but WE WILL SEND ALL OF OUR CONTRIBUTORS AN ADDITIONAL AUTOGRAPHED MINI-PRINT OF DAMIAN WAYNE!  

  •  $40,000 - With this stretch goal, We will not only have a WEEKLY/Bi-WEEKLY RELEASE SCHEDULE, SEND ALL OF YOU A PERSONALIZED THANK-YOU,and send out an ADDITIONAL DAMIAN MINI-PRINT, but we will have a VERY SPECIAL GUEST STAR IN THE LAST EPISODE!!! We can't reveal who it is quite yet, but let's just say, it will be a pretty "Super" time if we reach this goal!

  •  $50,000 - As Anakin would say, "This is where the fun begins". At this level, not only will all of the crazy things above happen, but EACH OF OUR TOP 10 DONORS WILL RECEIVE AN OFFICIAL PROP FROM THE SHOW! - Not only that, but just so that no one is left out, we will do RANDOM PROP DRAWINGS FOR ALL OF OUR CONTRIBUTORS EVERY WEEK DURING THE RELEASE OF THE SEASON! Give an extra $5, get an exclusive prop? That's a pretty great deal!

  •  $100,000 - We know that this is near impossible. In fact, it's downright insane to suggest that Bat-fans would love Big Red this much. But... If somehow we reach this goal, by some act of God we reach this goal, we will not only do everything promised above and in the reward tiers, but WE WILL IMMEDIATELY BEGIN PRODUCTION ON SEASON 3 (8 EPISODES, The MAIN Villain will be BANE!!!) WITH EACH OF OUR CONTRIBUTORS RECEIVING THEIR VERY OWN RED HOOD: THE FAN SERIES SEASON 2 AND RED HOOD AND ROBIN GRAPHIC NOVELS!!! 

*Graphic novels are not for sale and not endorsed or affiliated with DC Comics or their affiliates. These are Fan-Produced books and stories.

We know that with our team and what we have planned, we have the opportunity to make something really incredible. Not just something that fans of Red Hood and the gang will enjoy, but something that is actually made by fans for fans, that everyone can enjoy. 

This entire production is Non-profit, we are not taking this money and buying things for ourselves, but are using 100% of your pledges to make the coolest, most cinematic, and most comic book - feeling series that we can! 

We love these characters and we are SO EXCITED to bring this story to life, which is why we are inviting you as fellow Batman, Red Hood, and Robin fans to join us in our quest to make a truly awesome Series!

So please, hit that pledge button, give ANY amount, and help us to reach our goal so we can continue to bring these characters and some new ones to life in an awesome way!

Risks and challenges

The biggest risks that we foresee primarily revolve around Equipment, Travel, Locations, and Actors/Crew:

- Equipment:
* Because we want to rival Hollywood quality, we are looking at a solid
increase in our equipment rental and purchasing costs. As you know,
shooting in the highest quality is of the utmost importance when delivering
into YouTube's compression system. Not to mention, we want this thing to
look totally awesome and Movie Theater quality!

- Travel
* We are going to be having some fantastic guest stars make an appearance in
this season, but in order to do that, we will have to pay some travel costs. In
order to work with some of the best YouTubers, Cosplayers, and Actors in the
business, we have to do some serious travel! We have a few small shooting
trips planned:
- Los Angeles, California
- Orlando, Florida
- Draper, Utah
- Nashville, Tennessee

These trips are for principle cinematography for the episodes while the rest
will be shot on our home turf Detroit, MI. Our Comic Con schedule will be an
additional cost so that we can bring the show to YOU! We want to visit as
many as the budget will allow, but we hope for at least 5 out of state Comic
Cons to spend some time with you guys!

- Locations:
* Going along with Travel, in order to make this series the best that it can be,
we want to spend some of our budget accessing different locations that,
without the funding, would be impossible to access.

Want to see a sick Red Robin vs Evil Red Hood fight in a historic mansion, or
a crazy action scene with Damian escaping from an abandoned hospital???
All of these are as simple as helping us to reach our fundraising goal! And,
keep it quiet, but we may or may not have those things planned ;)

- Actors and Crew:
* It's no secret that we love our Actors and Crew, but in order to keep the show
running and to bring on some new faces, we have to pay some day rates! The
old saying is true: If you want the best, you have to pay for it. Which is why, if
we want to take this thing to the next level, we have to pay the pros!

There are always unforeseen challenges in any production, however, we want to virtually eliminate our risks by attaining the necessary budget to make the Season successful.
