The story of the project
Unfortunately, that would cost Jay-Z money that I don’t have so I thought of other ways I could tell the story. That inevitably led me to graphic novels, a medium I love for its style and its subtle but important influences it has on the world of film and television. I then began to create a chapter format for the story and have finished it with a total of 15 chapters (which are like episodes). A few months ago I met Wilson Duong, a graphic artist who was looking to collaborate. We sat down and I told him the story and he really liked it. Since then we’ve been in heavy communication to get the characters looking right, getting some of the icons looking right, this is what i sent Wilson –
And he hits back with –
So yes, Wilson is amazing.
I’m really excited to take this leap and produce something that comes from the result of my habit of thinking about things for too long and developing them to insane lengths without acting on them. This idea feels strong enough that I have no choice but to see it through as far as I can and I can’t wait to get started, but I can’t produce it without the help that this campaign can provide, so I’m hoping that this can be the next step on the road to completion!
How the funds will be used
– $5000 will be used to produce as much of the 15 chapters of Chrone as possible, allowing my production team to spend their time and energy and get something back from it.
-$1000 will be used to promote Chrone on social media, to host a website for publishing it and to hire out the studio at Ma Petite Coquette Boudoir to do photoshoots for character reference images.
Ideally, by the time the funds are used up either Chrone will be finished, or will have found a way to make its own money to keep it going.
