The continuing story of Kaze... as he seeks to avenge the Royal Family and restore peace to the kingdom!
THE LATEST NEWS on GHOST WARRIOR
We just wanted to give you kats a little bit of an update!
Originally shown on August 28th, 2014 at the Eurofurence Convention in Berlin, Germany; this is a slightly cut down version of the Kaze: GhostWarrior teaser. Using the original assets from the groundbreaking short film of 12 years earlier our team had to produce this in less than 24 hours complete with music, titles and editing. It was announced at Eurofurence that Kaze: GhostWarrior would finally go to series after so many years much to the delight of fans in the audience. What really caught their attention however was the Oculus VR logo when it showed on screen. “Kaze” will be produced along side “Stasys” and both series represent the worlds first pair of VR/AR TV series.
The final look of the characters in Kaze will be different from those in the original short film of course. Technology has progressed so much in the last 12 years allowing for us to take advantage of GPU rendering and simulation technology for fur/hair (absolutely critical when dealing with Anthropomorphic creatures like Kaze). It was good to know however that the original assets and technology used to produce the original short film still worked.
Once realized in VR and AR, both shows will be an immersive experience yet allow for either lean forward or lean back viewer enjoyment. The VR editions will be very much like “being there” while the AR versions offer a radical departure from conventional entertainment of today. The AR experience is best described as having a stage play presented to you on your desktop, coffee table or in your living room, holographically projected in front of you.
Needless to say, these productions are cutting edge and represent the next big step in entertainment.
Declaration Pictures Inc., (http://www.declarationpictures.com) announced today that it has secured the motion-picture, TV and additional format/medium rights to Amadhia Albee’s “Kaze: Ghost Warrior”.
Declaration Pictures Inc. president, Kelly Lee Myers, will be heading-up development of the property into a CG animated action/drama TV series with Albee functioning as Creative Consultant.
“We are very excited about being able to finally bring Kaze to life in this medium after so many years. The support of the fans of the original short film, and now upcoming radio plays, worldwide has been unwavering and growing,” said Myers, an award-winning 20+ year veteran of Film/TV visual effects industries.
He continued by stating, “The series will be cutting-edge in terms of the technology used to bring Kaze to life, and so will the story-lines and characters. This is not going to be a kids’-show by any means. Our intention is to make it as hard-hitting and gritty as any live-action, action/drama on TV today; and we will be bringing-on talented writers as we develop the episodic scripts and the overall story-arc for the series.”
The company says that pre-production will begin in the fall of 2014, with voice casting scheduled shortly thereafter with the goal of putting the first episodes into full production in the early months of 2015.
Declaration Pictures Inc., will also be handling merchandising and additional transmedia product development and distribution for the KAZE: GHOST WARRIOR series.
