Independently Awesome: Sanford Greene’s Animated Micro-series

1000-animated-seriesIn more animated news, comic artist Sanford Greene and few of his friends are looking to put together a new (limited) web series simply called 1000. Described as “a world where aliens, warlocks, zombies, warlords, ancient beasts, and all manner of entities exist.” The series protagonist is Dragon Son, one such entity whose been “sentenced to 1000 acts of repentance” in order to be redeemed.

According to their Kickstarter campaign, the series consist of seven 90-second episodes that focus on specific characters with a final, eighth episode featuring everyone. A mix of martial arts and monsters, 1000‘s cast comes across as fairly unique and yet right at home in a fighting game like Street Fighter or Darkstalkers.

Apparently the title had originally been announced to be part of MTV Comics – a digital, creator owned comic imprint from MTV – in 2010, but it never seems to have surfaced. That said, it’s unclear as to whether this micro-series will be used to pitch MTV on a full series or if it will solely be an indie effort. Guess we’ll have to wait to find out!

    This looks awesome! I love Darkstalkers. It also reminds me of Ralph Bakshi’s work and Samurai Champloo.
