A few years back a short horror film titled The Stylist was released. The short was directed by Jill Gevargizian, who is also known as Jill Sixx, and starred Najarra Townsend (Contracted, Me and You and Everyone We Know).
Now Gevargizian is hoping to make her feature directorial debut with an adaptation of The Stylist, with Townsend reprising her role from the short. To help make it happen, she launched a Kickstarter campaign to crowdfund the project.
You can find more info below, along with the Kickstarter video and the 15-minute original short film if you’ve never seen it before.
Shared universes in literature and movies are an awesome idea, and when all creators involved are passionate about their individual projects as well as the larger universe itself, amazing things can be accomplished. Just look at what Marvel and Disney have done with their cinematic universe.
Silver Empire – a small independent publisher from husband and wife team Russell Newquist and Morgon Newquist – has set out to create such a world. Russell and Morgon have launched a Kickstarter for “Heroes Unleashed” Phase 1, the first set of novels taking place in a shared superhero world. The campaign has almost doubled its goal, now sitting at close to $2K. But there’s still 11 days to support Silver Empire’s endeavor!
I was able to have a chat with some of the creators and minds behind “Heroes Unleashed,” which you can check out below!
If you love the style of the late, great artist H.R. Giger, whose work has been seen in movies like the Alien franchise and Species, Scorn is a game you’ll likely be interested in seeing more of.
The game has been in development for quite a while now, and previously attempted a Kickstarter effort which unfortunately was not able to meet its goal. But instead of giving up, the team at Ebb Software is pressing forward. They’ve launched a brand new crowdfunding campaign, and you can read more about it and check out their latest gameplay trailer below.
Hey, folks! It has been a little while since I last posted a Kickstarter Spotlight but I ran across this one completely by accident and loved it! It has only a few weeks left so I figured there is no time like the present. The Girl Who Kept Night In Her Closet is a book about a little girl with enormous power or at least an equally gigantic imagination. It’s up to you to decide exactly where reality exists and fantasy begins. But that is definitely part of the joys of childhood, right?
