Obi Ud Looks to Raise $55,000 via Kickstarter to Complete the Original Animation Red Origins

Three kids try to stop Mazi Mbe's plan to restore Africa to its original state where Tricksters & Spirits ruled and Juju was law.


Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/07/2014 -- Red Origins is an original animation created both Onyi and Obi Udeh. The two started working on Red Origins as a hobby two years ago before they realized they had written a fun and exciting story that retold African Oral Folklore and introduced Juju to the world. Onyi and Obi then created Kolanut Productions, an independent production company, in order to bring their characters to life. Now, with adequate funding help, Kolanut Productions can bring this original series to life.

To complete this project two more writers and an editor will have to be added to the team, along with two concept artist, animation director, storyboarder, and three more animators. Finding artists that can work with a strict budget is also a challenge that the team will have to face. That being said the Red Origins team knows that they are well equipped to handle these tasks, because for the past two years they've been funding Red Origins with limited funds.

Onyi and Obi are raising funds to pay animators, writers, and editors to put out a top quality pilot episode for Red Origins. They currently have several artist on standby waiting for them to reach their financial goals. After they finish the pilot, they will use their access to various networks to get Red Origins aired. If the network route isn't to their advantage then the Red Origins team will put out a web based series.

This project will only be funded if at least $55,000 is pledged by Sat, Apr 19 2014 9:49 PM +05:30.
