About this project

     The original Perjurer series premiered on Youtube in 2010, and became both the first project from the team and its first finished series. Its central theme revolved around people called Perjurers breaking the intimate trust of people close to them, sacrificing the lives of others in order to extend their own shortened life spans. Spoilers: People died.

     It's been over two years since the series concluded, and we're ready to revisit the project with more experience, a bigger staff, and a new direction for the tale--one we decided would be best done in glorious 3D.

     What We Need and Why on Earth We Need It: 

    What may come as a surprise to many is just how costly art is! It takes tons of time and energy for the artists on-board to create the images, voices, songs, and videos you all see and hear. $20k goes a long way in helping us make this a reality. 

     $11k goes towards the animation team, where we can commission modelers and animators to create new 3D models, better textures, and smoother presentation. $8k goes to the voice actors, sound effects, and equipment/software anyone would need. 

     And lastly, $2k was added to cover shipping fees (no matter where you live) and the fees Paypal, Amazon, and Kickstarter take out for using their services. Last thing we need is to be $2000 short! We've been scratching our brains, thinking of ways to win your hearts over so that everyone wins, and we finally came up with how to do the rewards!

     Every dollar helps, and we don't mean that lightly. That's why you won't just receive a thank you and goodbye: everyone gets something!

Lower Tiers:

   The trailer music heard in the 2nd half of the Kickstarter video.

   The wallpapers we're using to dress up the Kickstarter page. Only you get 8 of them - one of each main character from the trailer/movie.

   A digital copy of the film once it's released.

   Digital copy of the Kickstarter-only concept soundtrack for The Perjurer. (Several excerpts from the concept score can be found directly below)

Higher Tiers:

   Digital copy of the official score of The Perjurer film. It will contain every song you ever hear in the film and DVD menus. Every. Song.

   Using the email you gave us to pledge, you'll be the among the first to watch the film once it's ready to view. You will also be able to watch any trailers and behind-the-scenes footage we make before everyone else!

   We upgrade your movie and film soundtrack to physical copies! (DVD images in "Perks" title banner used for demonstration only; the final product is subject to change.) You'll also be put in the special thanks segment of the ending credits.

   The Perjurer isn't the only story in the ProjectTrinity-verse (PTverse), and it's not quite a standalone! No matter how abstractly so, each story we create is interconnected with one another and spans across novels, games, films, shows, and radio plays. For $500, you get the physical copies of all four books to our flagship series "This Crazy World" and the first book of "Mesto Accelerando". On top of that, one of our artists will draw your character and make an exclusive CD cover featuring him or her alongside the official cast!

   We bring your character to life! He or she can either make a brief cameo in the actual film, or you can take the director's seat and create a 5-minute short that will go in the special features section of the DVD menu. You'll be able to direct the voice actors, composers, and modelers (within reason/budget) and create a short story of your own.

Above all, everyone who contributes more than $1 receives all the lower tiers/rewards as well!

Risks and challenges

We have a very loyal staff, many of whom are from the original series. However, there is always a chance we may lose an essential artist or voice actor due to unfortunate and unforeseen circumstances. Just as we do for many other projects, we have a multi-talented team comprised of over 40 creative members. If one must pass the torch, there will be many more waiting and willing to carry it onward.

We thank you for your time and hope to hear from some of you soon! This is an ambitious and exciting time for all of us, and we can't wait to get started!
