WHAT IS THE GATE?

The Gate at Megacon
The Gate at Megacon

The Gate is an exciting, original character forged in alchemy, indestructible, that can change into a solid, liquid, and gas and consume all living matter into oblivion. After 4 years, we have built the horror/hero monster known as The Gate to represent the SCREENPLAY, COMIC BOOK, and NOVEL. It has taken a considerable amount of resources to bring the potential franchise to this point, but every stage has been a success. From here, we need funds to produce the next episode of the web series and beyond.

WEB SERIES SYNOPSIS EPISODE 1

After fleeing a secret society, Sarah and Tim are attacked by a group of sadistic voyeurs who meet a worse fate at the hands of a mysterious monster known as The Gate.

We made it to the front page of Reddit, have added 4,000 followers on twitter, and have had 1 MILLION tweet interactions over 24 hours! We are grateful for this recognition and want to bring the world more of The Gate. Here's how.

Risks and challenges

After 5 years developing The Gate we have come across many hurdles and challenges. We've met the our financial, resource, promotional, and support needs through involvement from industry professionals invested in the direction of The Gate and directly from the online and local community in and out of Comic Cons. We are proud to say we have created a character many fans, young and old, identify with and are excited by. The greatest challenges continue to be growing financially and acquiring resources to make The Gate at its highest potential. As of late, the word has spread and we believe many of the people out there who want to see The Gate web series, film, comic book, and novel (Franchise) meet its potential can now be equipped to make that a reality. Step by step, episode by episode, fan by fan, with each convention appearance, The Gate's content and visibility can grow, and the best part is, the community made it happen!
