The fundraising campaign for the second of the fantasy RPG-inspired Mythica films has begun.
Continuing the story that begun in A Quest For Heroes, The Darkspore follows our band of heroes as they go up against a new villain intent on getting his hands on the powerful artifact known as The Darkspore.
For me, this was a no-brainer, Arrowstorm Entertainment has never let me down, producing the sort of films I want to see and delivering on their Kickstarters every time.
The Mythica series follows the adventures of Marek (Melanie Stone), a wizard born with the dark power of necromancy, as she learns to harness the power that threatens to corrupt her. She recruits a team of adventurers to battle Szorlok, the legendary Necromancer, and thwart his goal of uniting the four shards of the Darkspore to unleash an undead plague on the land.Check out the movie's Kickstarter page to see the variety of investor incentives, from digital downloads, DVDs, and Blu-Rays through to personal screenings in your home, hosted by one of the producers.
When Teela’s sister is murdered and a powerful relic stolen, Marek and her friends face a sinister new enemy - Kishkumen, a foreign mystic bent on reclaiming the Darkspore for his master Szorlok. Armed with twin maps, Marek and her team race Kishkumen and his horde through creature-infested lands, to a long abandoned underground city – all the while pursued by bounty hunters intent on returning Marek to slavery.
Joined by the mysterious dark-elf warrior – Qole – the team journeys deep underground to discover that the ruined city is now home to an undead dragon. Trapped between Kishkumen and the dragon, Marek and her team must employ all their skill and magic to battle the beast, and combat Kishkumen for their hard won treasure and their lives.
The film company wants to raise $75,000 by May 1, and looks on course to hit that target - attracting over 300 backers in just 24 hours.
Although Mythica 2: The Darkspore is already shot - the second of the trilogy, filmed back-to-back last year, the funding raised through Kickstarter will go towards financing the post-production (ie. sound, music, visual effects etc)
