[Kickstarter] Ultimate Weapon - Battlefield by ~Dzoan
Hi everyone! What a surprise! An update???
I’m write this article to present you a project I worked on in 2007: Ultimate Weapon. For the 2007 release of the video game Assassin’s Creed, IFC Media Lab and Ubisoft organized an assassins themed short movie contest. Back then, I was doing an internship near L.A. in a studio that shot funny web videos. I met Greg Reid and Joel Poehlmann, 2 actors, who had entered the contest just 2 weeks from the deadline with a total budget of 800$ ^^’. They saw my portfolio and wanted to bring me onto the project. So I drew about 10 to 12 illustrations for the short, entitled Ultimate Weapon, in a week span aside my internship. Long story short, we won the 1st prize and the film is in the US collector edition of Assassin’s Creed.

So what now? Greg and Joel want to relaunch the project after 5 years and make a web series out of Ultimate Weapon, the first episode being the winning short. They called me back once again to take care of the illustrations and concept art. The first time was great so why not do it again? But to make this project work, we need money (Ha! There he goes :p). We are launching a Kickstarter campaign and hope to find support from the audience: you guys ! Any contribution is important, whatever the amount and we thank you in advance for your help.
