About

Nightmares in the Dark is an urban fantasy series, mixing magic, elves, trolls, and other monsters into the modern world. These creatures have lived in the shadows of human society, hiding out through magic. Their descendents, many of whom know nothing of their supernatural ancestry, live modern lives like everyone else, until they come into contact with magic in some way.

The series follows these descendents as their respective magical heritages are awakened, making them visible to other hidden supernatural folk, and to the more vicious predators of the supernatural world.

The basic script and animatic will be a starting point, and from here, we’ll be able to find writers, voice actors, and additional artists and animators.

We will also be contributing to the Kicking It Forward movement, found at http://kickingitforward.org.

Stretch goals

$3,000

Voiced Animatic: If we make it to $3k, we’ll be able to hire on additional voice actors, which will be featured on the downloadable animatic. Additionally, this stage may also draw better writers to our crew for the future episodes of the series.

$4,000

Pencil Check: At $4k, production work continues, and we get the sketch animation, as well as more complete audio effects, and stock music.

$6,000

Episode 1 Finished: At $6k, the first episode can be finished in full, though for the most part, it’s still a small-time operation. At this level and above, you can add $10 to any mailed package to receive a DVD copy of the episode when finished.

$10,000

Episode 1 Finished with a Crew: At $10k, we can bring in additional artists and staff, and arrange better resources, like custom music. The first episode should be finished in much shorter order, and we can keep working on more of the series.

$10k+

More episodes! The more we raise, the more and faster we can produce in the series. Concepts are in place for a whole season, and beyond.

Risks and challenges

As an animated project, the risks in the production are mainly those of time. Most of the work in the production rests on the shoulders of our lead animator, unless we break into a better-staffed stretch goal. This concept has been a goal of his for a number of years now, and he’s not about to give up on it yet. Regardless of how much funding is achieved, Nightmares in the Dark itself WILL happen, it’s only a matter of when. The more funding secured here, the faster it goes.
