A new sci-fi comedy - Eris - has hit Kickstarter and needs you to get involved in order to realise the project’s full potential.
The project bends but doesn't quite break the fourth wall. From the press release:
Imagine a female ‘Mad Max’ waking up in the ‘Never Ending Story’. Or perhaps, even, a series of ‘Red Dwarf’ as directed by Ridley Scott. Who will emerge victorious in this interstellar battle between love and strife? Eccentric aliens resurrect the last human - Eris. But is she more than they can handle? British sci-fi comedy with comic book action, retro styling and a rebellious spirit!
Director Brad Watson describes it, “Eris is the perfect creative endeavour to grow from a crowdfunding scenario. It is designed to be loved and nurtured by a fan base that will feel proud to have had a hand in its creation toward our eventual goal of taking over the whole world with fun action, adventure, inventive but lovable characters and fart jokes.”
Created by Haydn Hades, a talented stand-up comedian as well as writer, producer and director. Haydn has produced the acclaimed short The Dark Room (starring David Mitchell) and has directed many stage plays (including Harold Pinter’s The Homecoming).
Eris is brought to life by the astoundingly talented Jahannah James who, as well as being a fantastic actress is linked to her interviews with Hugh Jackman and Taron Egerton. Her comedy videos on Facebook have reached an audience of up to 80 million and she now has 360,0000 registered fans. Jahannah also cohosts a weekly radio show with Noel Clarke on Fubar Radio. The combination of Jahannah’s talent and the innovation behind Eris has already created an online buzz. The Eris mini episode, Eris and the Futile Tin of Mystery, reached 35,000 views within 24 hours of its release on social media.
Eris is directed by award winning Indie helmsman, Brad Watson, who has also composed and performed the projects epic synth score. Brad’s latest feature, Hallows Eve, premiered at FrightFest and was previewed at BFI before being shown around the world. As well as being an expert with working with low budgets Brad is also a complete sci-fi obsessive which makes him the perfect to choice to deliver Eris to the world.
Creative Effects are essential to the Eris universe and they don't come much more qualified than John Schoonraad. John has worked on Return of the Jedi, Indiana Jones, Gladiator, Saving Private Ryan and Troy. He was also part of the Oscar-winning creature crew for The Wolfman, working with Rick Baker.
