KICKSTARTER PICK: Nightshadow – A Comic Book Feature Film

KICKSTARTER PICK: Nightshadow - A Comic Book Feature Film

It is an amazing time for the superhero, as they have dominated pop culture, movies and of course, comics to varying degrees over the last few years. Even though major corporations have been ruling that landscape, it has given rise to independent filmmakers and comic book creators to be able to add to the superhero genre.

Nightshadow is the whole package: a comic book-style film, with a comic book being produced, as well by the fairly new Cross The Line Films production company. They have launched a Kickstarter to help fund the production of the costumes for the film, which can be very expensive when you are dealing with superhero properties, even new ones.

The story of Nightshadow is one that will be received well by fans of superhero properties, as it is dealing with a female protagonist, something that many fans of the genre have been clamoring for in the past few years. The story will follow Quinn Collins, a.k.a Nightshadow, as she tries to navigate her life after leaving a mysterious order of assassins. Intrigue, self discovery, and plenty of action will pepper the pages of the comic book, as well as pop off the big screen.

The Kickstarter is full of awesome perks to help these guys get the best costumes and props imaginable for the movie project. Cross The Line Films has partnered up with two stellar companies in the business, Disguise Designs and the Renegade Effects Group. The former is developing custom-made costumes and fabrics for the film, while the latter is known for their incredible talents attached to such projects as Star Trek, Star Wars, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, and more. Some of the perks you can get for donating to the cause include digital downloads of the completed movie, copies of the companion comic book, behind the scenes featureless, and even the chance to hang out on set! These rewards, as well as exclusive merchandise and concept art can be yours for varying level of different price tiers.

Both my parents instilled in me at an early age the awesome power and incredible wonder of the written word. My father sat with me when I was four years old and taught me to enjoy reading with classic comic strips like SPIDERMAN, PEANUTS, B.C. and, later, CALVIN AND HOBBES. My mother exposed me to such classics of literature as Poe, Tolkien, Stoker and Doyle, and I started my own comic collection with allowance money from mowing lawns. I liked Wolverine before it was cool, I watched as Superman died and returned, and huddled under the covers as I turned the pages of SANDMAN. Reading is like oxygen to me, and all genres and formats are welcome and devoured equally. I am the co-host of The DW and Incredible Jeff Show, CEO of Permian Productions, and a reviewer at Graphic Novel Reporter. I am 34 and live in scenic Saratoga Springs New York, where I haunt coffee shops and dive bars and the best comic shop anywhere, The Comic Depot.
