About

LIVRO GRATUITOS - Recompensa #2 "Pledge $5 or more" >>>>

Jamie & Daniele DIM :: Vol. I is an intriguing and engaging 24-page comic book that is an introduction to a much broader story about a girl named Daniele.

Our project brings the comic book and theater world together to raise mental health awareness.

The result of our creative effort will be a directory of support services that those experiencing hardships, depression and suicidal tenancies may access for help.

If you're able to help contribute as much as $5 it would be a huge impact. Any value is great as it helps to keep our campaign looking active.

Would greatly appreciate you being a part.

We'd like to invite you here on Kickstarter to breathe life into our project. We welcome you to be a part of the creative process! The art for this comic book is 100% complete. The next step is to team up with you and raise funding for publishing this comic book, which is Vol. I, and also fund the full story of Vol. II. Here are our timelines for the next steps:

  • 18 September 2015: Kickstarter campaign begins
  • 31 October 2015: Kickstarter ends. This is also our forecast date for delivering the Vol. II script to the artist
  • **NEW**We have a backer for the online directory that will help us roll out the template over October.

  • November 2015: First wave of rewards; shipping period of items, such as the post cards. Publishing period of the comic book begins
  • January 2016: Second wave of rewards; shipping period of the comic books to each backer, and other items, such as the published theater-performance script.

Jamie & Daniele DIM :: Vol. I is the story about how a carefree girl called Daniele becomes the girl with a heavy gaze and a stormy heart, Daniele DIM.

As the events in the story unfold, we understand how she is transformed into the villainous character in the play HOLIA, produced by Irish dance and theater group, HOLIA Project (http://www.holia-project.tumblr.com/). This beautifully illustrated comic book is the brainchild of creative director Katie (Cat) Myers, a US-born writer and performer based in Ireland. The project is at an exciting stage, Vol. I of the comic book has been illustrated and is looking fabulous.

Jamie & Daniele DIM :: Vol. I and the HOLIA theater-performance series speak of experiences of dealing with adult depression through creative expression. The stories highlight this important topic, and carry a positive message of overcoming and resilience. The is plan to continue the stage show, HOLIA and combine the story ofJamie & Daniele DIM into the play in autumn 2016.

Over the course of 2015, you may follow us on our blog (http://www.holia-project.tumblr.com/) and Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/three.o.HOLIA) for updates on our our projects and performance activities.

Risks and challenges

Our team has identified the most risk being attached to the printing turnaround time. The problem is the process can be slow, and at times it may take 1 to 2 months to receive the books. There is a potential risk with turnaround time and requiring more money if we need to rush the order. We've taken this into consideration and have budgeted 2 months as reflected in our rewards plan, estimated delivery January 2016.

A second risk is shipping costs associated with sending the items for our rewards plan to backers. After speaking with other Kickstarter campaignees, this can easily be miscalculated and could potentially result in unexpected expenses. We've worked in a small shipping price for each reward plan that will help buffer the costs for shipping.

Funding a project in general can be a challenge. We're doing what we love. Along with some blood, sweat and tears, and with the support of the Kickstarter community we know we can successfully complete this project together.

All members of our team have a proven track record of managing commercial projects and campaigns. Our team consists of individuals who have successfully managed Kickstarter campaigns, including ones specifically for comic books.

J.L. Giles works in comic book illustration and manages the art, colors and letters for Jamie & Daniele Vol. I and II. He has worked for publishers such as Marvel, IDW, Zenescope, Papercutz, and Inception Strategies. http://gilesdailypaintings.blogspot.com

Grace Hughes is a copywriter, copyeditor and journalist. As well as her work with HOLIA, she's been involved in creating children's stories for a publisher of interactive e-books, Celtana.
