Hey guys, for the better part of a decade, I've been working on a trans-media project currently titled "2250ad- Black Lion". Originally starting as a graphic novel project, I have been developing and am now nearing completion of the screenplay script adaptation.
Since starting this project I've found the landscape of the Comic book industry has shifted greatly, and now relies very heavily on presales via places such as Kickstarter. I was really reluctant about going to Kickstarter with this project and instead wanted to get on board with a publisher ahead of production but it looks like those days are gone.
To facilitate the upcoming crowdfunding campaign's chances of success I developed a 3d rendering of the main antagonist, the big bad "Black Lion" or "Leonoir". The process was so compelling I have now begun developing other 3d assets. This has led to the potential for other transmedia opportunities such as the gaming market.
In light of this, and by looking at current trends in the film industry I am hoping to create a fully realized 3d rendering of "New Giza City" where this story takes place. With this asset I hope to create not only an interactive experience such as a game, but also use this asset as part of our virtual production, similar to that of the Volume, used in The Mandalorian. In essence content consumers can read the comic, watch the film, but also take a "tour of the actual set" in an interactive experience.
It's an ambitious project but I think I have my ducks in a row to make a pitch this year. I've included some page art for your enjoyment.
