NOTE: Aug 9,2017-This Kickstarter failed, but the project will keep going. Visit themultifacetfaq.com to see how it grows from here for the next arc!
It started as a work of fiction...but we can make it so much more together. MultiFacet was conceived originally as a long form anime, but after four years of learning, and proofs of concepts testing with my co-creators and animators Paul Wollenzien, Nancy Nor, and Fraeya Pinto of Rune Entertainment Inc. ...
... I realize that's not the best way to tell its story. A story about extreme forms of religions and secularisms and how to stop them. MultiFacet moves forward at a timely moment it was born for: as a L.I.T.E. anime.

Together we are going to make the 1st mixed media motion chapter and give it away for FREE online. We fight back against all forms of extremists! Stop looking at the total and look at us together. The art matters. Our first Kickstarter three years ago (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/themultifacetseries/complete-the-multi-facettm-series-trailer) made it in the final hours. This one will too.

The Seleto's been evaporated
No one knows who did it, but why they did it is even more of a mystery.
What is known is the militant Ultrere (supposedly disavowed by the Vibulare) and the zealot Fanata (allegedly denounced by the Royligio) now have permission to rain chaos all over Dunya. They hate each other yet only seem to hurt everyone else.
How do you stop them?
That's the question for 4 main protagonists of MultiFacet. The only problem is each of them thinks and feels only they have the "right solution" for Dunya.
How will we use the funding?
Nadir creates the source material and the overall vision for the series. He has been working on the story and the world for nearly four years. It is intense and all to real.
Then the team at Rune Entertainment Inc. (www.rune.co) elevates the material into a visually compelling narrative combining animation elements with other media styles for a completely unique experience. They will also bring their expertise to The MultiFesto: Guide To Save Dunya and draw you deeper into this complex world in traditional book form as well. It's going to be a spectacular reward and this version of it is ONLY being produced for campaign backers!
The motion comic will be released on www.themultifacet.com for the world to experience for free thanks to our backers. At the same time the guides will ONLY be sent to backers to compliment the experience of the story and acknowledge their support.
This model is repeatable and allows us to tell the story from beginning to end, with the help of fans over the next several years.
No gimmicks or over promising. If we exceed the campaign we will just put more money into the motion comic chapter and the guide to add more detail, animation elements, and immersion.

In Conclusion... (whether the campaign fails or succeeds)
"I am trying to make MultiFacet because I was inspired by Avatar the Legend of Korra and have been a lifelong nerd. So I wanted to make an anime series myself about a science fantasy world where prisms refract light into gravity defying structures and weapons. Blending real world themes of complicated millennial relationships, water conservation, religion, secularism and extremism. That elevate people of colour and diversities. I'm doing this without any big studio support and hoping people believe it's worth at least $13 to help my creative team bring the story to life as a motion comic that we want to share for free."

Risks and challenges
This is our second Kickstarter (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/themultifacetseries/complete-the-multi-facettm-series-trailer/) so my team and I are fully capable of completing the motion comic and delivering our rewards.
Yet as a Canadian Muslim I live in a world of risk. Hated by both Islamophobes and Islamic radicals alike. I know fully well that xenophobic bigots and hate mongers alike will not take kindly to being called out and challenged through nerd anime art and I fully expect both positive vibes and negatives ones as well.
However this campaign is only for those who want to overcome our fears together. To use our creativity to change hearts and minds, and stop people from becoming extremists by showing a complicated world with no easy answers. Yet answers that must still be found.
