Following various preparation stages, Dorad & Sirius has been accepted as a new project with the crowd funding website Kickstarter.
Our aim is to launch Dorad & Sirius in printed form, with the first in a series of graphic novels. In keeping with comic strips generally, the story is told in ‘present-tense’ with an eclectic mix of CGI illustrations, text block overlays and comic-strip areas. The book itself is A4 in landscape format, creating a widescreen ‘cinematic’ style.
Launched in 2009, Kickstarter has funded thousands of creative projects. As described on the website, “We’re a home for everything from films, games, and music to art, design, and technology.” Kickstarter was first featured on this blog last year, with the news about Space Command. At the time, while anyone in the World could be a backer, only projects from U.S. residents could be submitted for funding. Since then, the platform has been expanded to include U.K. based projects, making it possible for Dorad & Sirius to be involved.
I’ll be posting more details, along with a link to the project’s page, following the launch on Kickstarter itself. So if you like what you’ve seen of Dorad & Sirius generally, then join us for the next part of the journey.
Evolution & Imagination!
