Thank you to everyone that has supported PURE. - Our original goal has been met. YEAH!!!! Now we are hoping to obtain additional funding to take the project to a bigger stage - NYCC - New York Comic Con. We are less than $500 away from achieving this goal.

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

My name is Anthony Dortch (www.facebook.com/dortchdesigns) I am working on a project where models get body painted to become characters of a comic book called PURE.

PURE is a story built around the small nation of Seyns. It is governed by 7 feuding Western defined families; each with unique characteristics. They are privileged. The privileged don the ornate clothing and jewelry of money, beauty, and corruption. Their golden exterior and sky blue eyes belie any preoccupation with altruism, for the commoners serve as mere stepping stones to money, power and useless things.

The Others do not fit into society due to a substantial shortage of earthly possessions or status. The Others cannot camouflage their destitution. They live outside of Seyns and can only enter the nations walls to serve.

Video and photography will be created. I have created a blog of the information for the project: https://www.facebook.com/groups/339520699506551/

Some characters are clothed and others are nude to show the differences in society. - - - I am evolving the project to create mini stories that involve the complex issues of Western society.

Help us keep up the momentum - PURE has achieved its funding goal and PURE will be at Baltimore COMIC CON. With continued support PURE can get new equipment, go to new shoot locations and conventions. PURE is looking going to Columbus WIZARD CON in September.

MY GOALS ... is to travel to different places, find interested models and shoot what I can in one day. The end result will merge animation, illustration and live action to create the mini stories - I can take the images from the video to also continue work on the comic book layout.

THE FUNDS ... will be used to to print and prepare for the Baltimore Comic Con. Anything above the $1000 dollar mark will be used to get better equipment i.e. better camera equipment to evolve the project to the next level. 

If you know anyone interested please direct them to this page. Thank you.

Risks and challenges

There are many challenges to this project.

1. The challenge will be getting enough funding for printing and getting the comics shipped to me before the next convention - Baltimore Comic Con.

2. The challenge will be getting the idea out to the public. PURE needs to be at comic cons to get noticed. If we raise enough funds, PURE will go to more conventions.

3. Reassembling the cast to continue the project. So far we have been able to make mini videos and a small run of books, but our next step would be to get better equipment and push the design of the books even further.

    Many have asked how many people have been apart of the project. My response I have no idea. Sigh... So in celebration of being so close to the goal. we are roughly 500 away. I am making a new tier for kickstarter. For a donation of $30 you will receive a 16x20 in canvas print of every person/character that has been apart of PURE. And there will be a lot of people. This project began in 2009. It has evolved from paintings to body painting to short video to comic and now mini stories. What will happen next stay tuned... PURE is growing and evolving.
