In our continuing goal of highlighting BlackSci-Fi and contributions by creators of color across the various creative spectrum’s, we here at BlackSci-Fi.com are going to highlight some awesome Kickstarter, IndieGoGo, and GoFund Me campaigns you might want to donate to. Check out the below campaign, and spread the word.
From the Indiegogo website: Help us bring Yohance to the big screen! Based on the critically acclaimed African Space Opera comic by Midas Monkee, this will be the first feature from Midas Monkee Studios that will then set the stage for a whole slate of films within the Afro-Fantasy genre. We need a minimum of $10k to make this dream a reality.
Yohance is an African Space Opera that I created back in 2016 as a comic series. Later that year, it went on to successfully fund a Kickstarter for $16,000 in the hopes of printing physical issues. After it’s success, I decided that it was finally time for us to move forward with phase 2 and cross over into film. Our goal is to produce a fully animated feature film that will stay true to the impressionistic detail of the book’s art.
Our original goal was $60k but since then, we’ve had several investors express interest in the film. They’ve proposed that, if we can raise just $10k on our own -they’ll cover the difference. Simple as that! So all we need to do is cross that minimum threshold and this film becomes reality!
