Thank you for taking the time to hear our story! We hope you will partner with us to make this project a reality.
Who we are:
We are Parallel Digital; a small group of young, eager, filmmakers. We are an extremely passionate media team on a mission to make an impact, and prove that quality filmmaking doesnt need an outrageous budget. We have shot two wildly ambitious films on a next-to-nothing budget, where we feel that we successfully brought worlds to life. (http://youtu.be/xX4bhXJdGN8 - which was recognized, and highly regarded by the Ubisoft Montreal development team) and (http://youtu.be/A2t1lHYznew) These projects were both self funded, and created in less than two months each! Now that we have more experience under our belts, we feel we can handle a bigger project, and know that it will surpass everyones expectations!
What we are doing:
We are setting out to do the seemingly imposible. We are creating a 3-part Dark Souls fan series. It is not only set in the Dark Souls universe, but will tie into the canon of the game! We have some epic locations to shoot at, an AMAZING script, and some amazing gear for our characters. All create the specific mood that Dark souls aims to create.
What we are asking:
We are asking for a minimum of around $1,200. The majority of this money will go to buying the rest of the costuming for our main character. We want him to resemble this concept art (or elite knight armor set). If possible, we would want multiple characters to resemble other classes/armor sets from the game. The more funding we recieve, the easier it will be to bring this unique world to life!
The rest of the funding will go toward renting camera equipment (lenses, and a slider), buying a couple filters for our cameras, and/or props.
By supporting and contributing, you can earn a plethora of perks which range from a personally written thank you, to an executive producer credit and some great movie swag!
If we don't manage to collect all the funds we need, do not fret! This film would still be made! It won't be the perfect Dark Souls world we are aiming for, but we promise it will still be an awesome series!
What it means to everyone invovled:
When we decided to start making fan films, we had one goal in mind; make it for the fans. With 'Parallel', we did our best to make the Assassin's Creed world come to life, but didn't take the time to flesh out a story for the people who weren't fans of the series. We have since learned from our mistakes and short comings, and are taking a lot of care to not sacrifice anything for the hardcore fans out there, while still making a compelling story that will keep everyone entertained. We feel that with the script and plan we have, we found that medium.
Not only that, if you contribute, your support shows us nerds how much you believe in our project, and that means the world to us!
