About this project
HERE'S A ROUGH CUT FROM
AN EPISODE OF RED ORIGINS SEASON 1
Red Origins is an original animation created both Onyi and Obi Udeh (O.0 Brothers? Yes). The two started working on Red Origins as a hobby two years ago before they realized they had written a fun and exciting story that retold African Oral Folklore and introduced Juju to the world. Onyi and Obi then created Kolanut Productions, an independent production company, in order to bring their characters to life. Now with your help Kolanut Productions can bring this original series to life.
We are raising funds to pay animators, writers, and editors to put out a top quality pilot episode for Red Origins. We currently have several artist on standby waiting for us reach our financial goals. After we finish the pilot we will use our access to various networks to get Red Origins aired. If the network route isn't to our advantage then the Red Origins team will put out a web based series. We are determined to share this story with the world at all costs (that we can afford).
WE WILL STILL PUT OUT THE PILOT WHEN WE REACH OUR GOAL
Risks and challenges
To complete this project two more writers and an editor will have to be added to the team, along with two concept artist, animation director, storyboarder, and three more animators. Finding artists that can work with a strict budget is also a challenge that the team will have to face. That being said the Red Origins team knows that they are well equipped to handle these tasks, because for the past two years we've been funding Red Origins with limited funds.
In fact most people do not know that both the creators, Obi and Onyi Udeh, had to fund the project from their own checks every two weeks for the two years. Creator of Red Origins Onyi would literally take out the cover of rent and the allowance of one hundred and fifty dollars for food and the rest of the fund for the month would go directly to Red Origins. Creator Obi went as far as to go back to living with his parents, pick up three jobs, and ignore loan payments to keep the project moving. If two individuals are willing to sacrifice their hard earnings for two year and produce great work with a mediocre budget then it is safe to assume they are qualified to see this project completed through any adversity.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
