OVIDYSSEY is a proposed multi-part film series from Kearney Street Films, producers of the music video MODERN MAN. At Kearney Street, we pride ourselves on understanding what goes into dynamic and engaging films and film series, so we know that the tale of long-suffering alien astronaut OVID just can't be over yet. That poor guy deserves another chance!

Over the course of his adventure in survival, OVID will face unique and daunting challenges; before he can even think about fixing his ship with few tools and fewer resources, he must secure the basics. Edible foods, potable water, even breathable air is a struggle to obtain for OVID, as he grips to life and sanity in the most inhospitable environment imaginable. Dangers lurk in the canyons and deserts, shipwrecks and meteor storms, and even from the shadows in OVID's past. He would lose hope, but for a discovery that changes his life, and forces him to draw upon all his knowledge, tenacity and will to survive. A crashed probe, from a world his people have never heard of. A world with beautiful music...

Can OVID rise to the challenge of a cast-away making first contact? Or is he doomed to stay forever aside this beacon from another world? With Kearney Street's signature blend of modern HD video effects and classic sci-fi cinematic magic tricks, including animatronic puppetry, models, explosions and more, OVIDYSSEY will be a fresh, emotional, original science fiction story told in breathtaking visual detail.

In short, OVIDYSSEY is the space adventure series you've been waiting for.

How Can You help?

By donating to the OVIDYSSEY campaign, you can help the team at Kearney Street Films to continue the story of OVID.

At this stage, by donating to the OVIDYSSEY campaign you help us fund the project development phase, the humble beginnings of the project where research, outreach and story departments set the wheels into motion. The goal of $30,000.00 is for this initial stage; the ultimate budget of the finished film series will be much higher. But that budget will depend on how the project develops and grows, and how the story unfolds; all things that are determined in development. With the funding in place, we will be able to put writers, designers, editors, effects builders and more to work on expanding the world of OVID, while our marketing department spreads the word and seeks further resources and opportunities. Anything donated in excess of our goal will be used just the same: to further develop OVIDYSSEY, refining new ideas and creating new content to set us on our way.

Of course, you can also help us out just because you want nifty OVIDYSSEY and MODERN MAN goodies! Perks for donating run from the simple to the ridiculosly awesome. Get our Alien Flight Patch zip-up hoodie and explore the final frontiers of your neighborhood, or choose the OVID postcard and put it on your wall to remind yourself that hey, things aren't so bad. You're still on your own homeworld, after all. And every donation, no matter how small, will receive an email of thanks from Kearney Street Films, because all of our supporters are just too darn nice not to thank.

Other Ways You Can Help

If you can't donate, you can still help us out by spreading the word! Let your friends, loved ones, coworkers and more know about OVIDYSSEY; send them a link to MODERN MAN and show 'em what the hullabaloo is about! Heck, you can even tell your enemies, you might make a friend out of them they like it so much. At Kearney Street we make films because we love to entertain, and the bigger the audience the better, so if you know someone with 7 minutes to spend on a faraway moon, let them know where we are on Facebook, Twitter, or even (for you old timey types) in person.

Let the Adventure Begin!

Will Ovid make it off his barren moon prison? Or are his bones doomed to decorate its canyons forever? Only YOU can help us find out, by supporting Kearney Street Films in development of OVIDYSSEY: the space adventure series you've been waiting for.
