What is 'Super Kung Fu Comic-Scoping'?
You may be familiar with traditional Rotoscoping, this is an animation technique where animators trace over video footage, frame by frame, for use in cartoons. I am taking this basic technique and expanding it to produce fast paced Kung Fu comic action. I've written a dynamic script for Zombies Hate Kung Fu, with gaps for the fight scenes. This is where Master Leo and Super Kung Fu Comic-Scoping come in:
1) Master Leo will study the script and use his Kung Fu knowledge and film choreography experience to design fight sequences to the quality of a hard-hitting Hong Kong blockbuster.
2) Zombies will be played by well padded extras, and Master Leo will personally act out the fight sequences while filmed from several angles.
3) Reviewing the recorded footage, Master Leo and I will pick out the key action images and storyboard the fight scene comic panels.
4) The storyboard work will go to the artist integrated with the final script, giving a mix of traditionally written comic script to be created, and annotated Super Kung Fu Comic-Scoped images to be accurately reproduced.
Making a final product that is the most electrifying, vibrant and realistic Kung Fu comic possible. This is what makes Zombies Hate Kung Fu the unique comic project that you need to back!
So what's the story?
The graphic novel I'm launching covers a self contained story, introducing a Kung Fu expert called Mann and a horticulturaly gifted slacker called Ziggy. The two form a unique partnership, combining their disparate skills and allowing them to thrive in the face of the zombie apocalypse. Mann and Ziggy's 'easy' life of growing, trading and fighting is suddenly disrupted when they run into a scientist who has her own theory on the origin of the 'zombies', and how to deal with them. Reluctantly, Mann and Ziggy get thrown into her adventure of scientific experiments and running battles with a mysterious band of heavily armed strangers.
I'm really excited about getting this comics story out there, it's packed with action and a new take on the zombie genre, if you want to read it, you need to back it.
Rewards! Rewards! Rewards!
I've put together a string of rewards for all budgets, shipping world wide and offering free postage to the USA, Canada, UK and Europe (if you need any clarification on this, just message me). All the rewards, listed to the right of your screen, will help me fund the project and your contribution is greatly appreciated. When the project is funded, I'll send a questionnaire around to get email addresses for the digital copies and postal addresses for the physical rewards. If you choose a t-shirt option, you get to chose from all the designs available, when the project ends. If you've chosen an art print you'll have a choice from 10 cool pages (including the covers) and people getting the rings will have the choice of small/medium/large sizes. If you go for the ZOMBIE REWARD or 'THE BAD GUYS' REWARD level, you or a willing nominee will be drawn in the graphic novel as a a comic character, and everyone will see you beaten up by the awesome power of Kung Fu.

There aren't really any risks for delivering this project once the money is pledged. I have the script, I have the art and Kung Fu choreography professionals waiting and eager to start work. I have printers and casters standing by. I am eagerly waiting to package up all the rewards and ship them off to the backers once the project is funded and all the work is done.
