TV icons Richard Hatch (Battlestar Galactica), Tim Russ (Star Trek : Voyager) and James Kyson (Heroes) return to sci-fi TV with Blade of Honor.
The series, fueled by a Kickstarter campaign, has so far generated over $30,000 – enough to pay for one episode!
That’s not where it ends though. In order to give audiences more than one episode, the producers need more contributions.
Says the Blade of Honor team, “We’ve got big plans for Blade of Honor, but like with anything worth doing, we must start with the first step. That first step is episode one. The minimum we need to shoot episode one is $30,000 – that includes, building sets, creating wardrobes, renting stages, paying/feeding cast and crew, etc.., not post-production/visual effects. We are confident however, that with this small amount of money, we can make one hell of an impressive sci-fi web series episode.”
“But it is our hope that we fund more than just this one episode of a webseries with this campaign. We need at least five episodes to tell this first story, this first mini-season. Because of that, we’ve got our sights set on some stretch goals as well.”
The Kickstarter campaign encompasses a range of rewards including DVDs, autographed photos and producer credits.
From writer-producer Mark Edward Lewis, Blade of Honor fixes on Arina Kartades, a religious, headstrong, crack Alliance Navy Star Blade pilot in a war where the human Alliance is losing against the animal race, the Calinar. When Kartades discovers that her Statemandated religious upbringing was a lie, she embarks upon a forced quest to discover the true reasons behind the war. As her discoveries push her deeper into harm’s way, she must go against everything she believes in to fight a cloak and dagger rebellion and expose the galactic elite, the religious masters, and protect the ones she loves from the clutches of her own superiors and the combined military might of the Alliance and Calinar.
