Hey everyone! We have officially released a teaser animatic for our series Lost Kings which you can watch here. The premise for the story is below. We are gearing up for a Kickstarter campaign to raise the funds needed to animate this teaser. Please support us by liking our Facebook page and staying tuned for the campaign!
Donny King is a 16 year old kid and the very definition of the term “nerdy”. As a child of an abusive father, he uses various entertainment like video games, anime, and comic books to escape his reality. Kyle (18), Donny’s older brother, is the complete opposite: star QB for their high school football team and extremely popular.
One day, Kyle steps in to defend his little brother against a group of bullies but is eventually overpowered and thrown to the ground. Donny helplessly watches the beating and, as memories of his father flash through his mind, he finds himself wishing they were someplace better. The next thing they know, the brothers wake up to find themselves in a world that is straight out of Donny’s imagination. Here, all the nerdy tropes exist: Monsters that can only be killed by 3 hits in a weak spot; busty,scantily-clad anime women wearing "armor"; villains that monologue and reveal their evil plans. Together, the brothers must navigate this strange world to find their way home.
